Brainwavz Delta IEM's: new low cost champs! - Page 23

post #331 of 413

I have read somewhere , a few pages back that they are at par or better than VSD1. For those who have both Deltas and VSD1s, how would you compare them in terms of overall SQ?

That comment is ABSURD! I had both, and the VSD1 is superior in every way. Better mids, more refined treble, and most certainly more controlled and well rounded bass. The Deltas reach deeper, but from my experience and the experience of others who have reviewed the Deltas, they have very wobbly bass. No refinement at all. So no, the VSD1's and the Deltas do not compare to each other. The Deltas compare more with the MEE M6, Meelectronics CC51, or maybe the Sennheiser CX215?

What about SoundMagic E10??

Mate, please stop with your negativity.

 

You posted your views and opinions, which everyone has a right to do. Now stop it, its enough! No one wants to read your negative posts over and over, you dont like these IEMs... we get it. Please move on! I thought you would be mature enough to stop with this crap last time some of us mentioned it but clearly I was wrong.

On another note, I got a PM back from raz:

Hi

 

I've arranged one to be sent from Amazon uk, you should get a email with tracking and it might arrive by Friday.

 

Again sorry that customs was a pain with your original shipment, let me know when you get the replacement deltas

 

Thanks & Happy holidays

 

Thats what I call excellent sales service! Even though it probably wasnt his fault that customs ****ed up.

 

Cheers @raz, if only all sellers were like you!

Anybody who follow this thread know that you don't like Deltas ...In fact you hate it so much that you take every chanceyou get to bash anybody who likes or intending to get Deltas. My question is why are you still following this thread and ....the simple solution is unsubscribed from this thread and not open the thread .....just move on.

I think you are smart enough to move on but if you cannot and insist on maintaining this hating .... Good luck.

Guys, when commenting on headphones, it's a good idea to ALWAYS put at least "IMO", as really, your opinions are just that: Your opinions. 

 

Also, IMO, an opinion about a pair of headphones or IEMs without explaining what music you were listening to and with what source/amp, even if just an iPhone, really doesn't help anyone. Different equipment and especially different music will result in different experiences.

I've never had the opportunity to listen to the SoundMagic E10.

Some folks just live to be miserable....lucky me, I got one on my thread,lol. Just ignore him and help me let everyone he blasts know that he is to be ignored, it may be the only way to get rid of him(though not likely, unfortunately). He's so delusional he honestly thinks he's doing folks a service bashing the Delta's...pathetic, really. This is the last I'm saying on this, he's on permanent ignore from here on out.

 

Anyway, glad to hear that Raz made good on your lost Delta's,Lifted Andreas, it's good to see some companies still have good customer service :) I'm still loving my Delta's, and don't see me using any other cheap IEM any time soon. It hit the target square in the middle for me. Happy Holidays to all on this thread, may all your holiday wishes come true :)

I saw this five star review from Amazon recently and I'd thought I'd share it :tongue:...

Amazon Verified Purchase Another budget buster IEM that sounds like a hundred bucks. Yeah. These sound like something worth way more than they are priced. They feel like something worth way more than priced. Let me make this clear, I'm not exaggerating. I've been the current or former owner of VSonic G07, UE TF10, JVC HA-FXT90, Monster Miles Davis Trumpets, UE 700, Fischer Audio DBA-02 mkII, and Sennheiser IE80's, so I know a thing or two about high end audiophile headphones. These are my first foray into the Brainwavz line. I know that Brainwavz make the B2, which is a rebranded Fischer Audio DBA-02 mkII, which are one of the most highly rated dual balanced armature driver phones in the world. I've owned the FA DBA's, but not the B2's. When I received these from MP4Nation, i wasn't going to get too excited about it. I've been down the hyped budget IEM road before and been quite disappointed (i.e. JVC HA-FX40, Monoprice 8320, and Audio Technica ATH-CKL 200). Right out of the box though, I would be pleasantly surprised. The bass was tighter and boomier than i expected from a "balanced bass" IEM. The highs were clear, accurate, extend well, and decay is just right. Cymbals are crashes are articulate and clear, without being forward. The mids are sweet. Slightly forward. These are not V-shaped sound signature. These are more U-shaped, BUT this does NOT diminish the FUN! These are a sweet spot sounding mid-forward IEM, with very articulate bass and treble. There's hardly any sibilance at all, even when pushing the volume up. Instrument timbre is lush and accurate, making it so much fun to listen to instrumental music, classical music, or jazz. The most surprising thing about these IEM's is the bass. The description of the bass on the box made me think these would be similar to the bass on my HiFiMan RE-ZERO'S or my UE 700's. I WAS WRONG! The bass is impactful, present, can reach into sub-bass without flabbiness or lack of control, and present a nice note for note clarity and depth I just haven't found in any other budget IEM at this price range. Not one...until now. Instrument separation and detail retrieval are decent. I wouldn't say they are in the range of some of the IEM's i mentioned earlier at a higher price range, but they are equal to my Monster Miles Davis Trumpets. Those things go for $200.00. Soundstage and imaging are decent as well. Both equal to or exceeding the MMDT's for width and location. The sound signature actually reminds me a lot of the MMDT. They could be relatives, if there was such a thing.

If I have only one complaint about these, aside form no carry case (no biggie), is that there is quite a bit of driver flex going on. It can be quite a chore finding the right fit angle, and driver flex can be quite annoying at times. Aside from that, the build is GREAT!! Strain relief is very strong, the cords are thick and well insulated, and the chin slider makes microphonics almost a non-issue. These aluminum housings and build quality are simply absurd for the price. How can Brainwavz pull this off??

In summation, the Brainwavz Delta are the best sounding budget IEM's I've ever had the pleasure of hearing. They are just above the Philips SHE3590's, MEElectronics M9, and JVC HA-FX67 in performance ability and bang for the buck. Until something comes around that can offer this level of fidelity at this price, then make mine Deltas.

Well, I did see it too a while ago but didn't want to mention about it and start more arguments. I guess someone can rush with a review of a new product he got and later change his opinion. Who knows?

Well, I guess there are two of him running around...a Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde scenario ;) I guess he just doesn't like me...that would explain the nastiness on his part on my thread. *sigh* You cant please everyone all the time and I never even bother trying. Now that really is my last on this subject, no joke. I like keeping it civil in my threads, and this man is very far from that. Pity, he really seems like a good reviewer when he wants to be.....

I saw that good review on AMZ and wondered if it is the same guy which got into some dispute with Brainwavz or the guy in this forum is a poser and a troll.
