like you said the clarity, separation does take a hit compared to the s5s. but i think so far i'm immensely enjoying the s0s.. even though this is short i think they can give the vsonic vsd3s a run for their money.... and i think they're actually easier to recommend because of the more conventional housing (can be worn cable down) 

=) the sub 100$ market is very very strong at the moment.. makes me very happy

Yes, they're pretty good. Each time I pick up S0 they surprise me. They're highly capable.

Anyone will actually do, your sister's teachers, any friends, your neighbor or anyone who can think will return them to you in the same condition you lent them.

Well, by me "not knowing anyone," I meant that literally. I just moved into a totally new place a couple months ago. I will be transferring to a new school by next year, but otherwise I literally know no one here. :p 

 

I could give the S5 to my dad; I'm sure he'd like these.

First Impressions: Rich.

 

From the bottom up, I've found the S0 very organic. Like a Colorfly C3 in IEM form.

 

Rich, capable bass that isn't the end all in terms of sub-bass or texture, but very engaging nonetheless. Especially for rock/pop/EDM genres.

 

Mids are once again, rich. Very glad that the mid-bass is not covering the low mids for male vocals or the much-harder-to-get-right upper mids where female vocals lie. So far the S0 has performed admirably for both Eddie Vedder and Ellie Goulding.

 

And with regards to the treble region, very relaxed, yet detailed. To these ears, they are neither hot nor rolled-off. I'm reminded of the SE215 treble. Detailed enough not to leave anything out, but not so in your face that cymbals and upper end harmonics are screechy.

 

Looking forward to spending more time with these guys.

I've posted a review of the Brainwavz S0 here:

http://www.head-fi.org/products/brainwavz-s0-in-ear-headphones/reviews/11823

 

I definitely prefer the S0 to the previous S models, S1 and S5. It's an easy to like, easy to enjoy signature.

What, another one! I think Earfonia is the only dissenter so far  I think :)

 

 

Got my X1 but still waiting on my E11K. S0 and the X1 is an excellent pairing. No complaints for a satisfying sound on a budget.

I'm getting my X1 in next week and will pair it with mp4nations new Brainwavz AP001 travel amp which I'm also getting in next week for review....should be a fun week for sure :D I'm loving all of the folks on here who like the S0's, looks like another great hit for mp4nation and their Brainwavz lineup!

Just a quick update on burn in.

Just...wow.

 

They've been burning in for 30 hours now. No changes so far.

But tip rolling...oh my God

I rolled the double-flange tips from the MEElectronics M9 -- wow. The midrange opened up slightly, and I could hear a significant amount of sparkle now (and by signficiant, I mean barely noticeable).

 

I kept rolling iwth the tips, and ended up putting on the dreaded tips I had from the Pistons (which seem to hate being tip-rolled as every other IEM I've tried with them so far gives me fit issues). I put 'em on, and what do you know? They fit me perfectly now.

 

Oh, and they sound amazing. Midrange and treble opened up further, and the bass leans out a tad. Very good results so far.

Great review, mirrors my impressions so far. I also like them more than the S5. I still find the mids slightly recessed, I guess tip rolling is the entertainment for this weekend.

Wide-bore tips to the rescue!

Yeah, that's pretty much what I've used so far but I still find the mids a bit recessed (and I do only mean a bit). Any suggestion on specific tips to try out is welcome smily_headphones1.gif

Hmm...well, I've been tip rolling with the S0s for some time, and I think the stock bi-flange tips work best with the S0 thanks to its slightly shallow fit, which leans out the bass and balances out the whole signature. In turn, the midrange and treble both take a good step forward. 

 

Outside of stock tips, I find the Pistons tips to work really well thanks to their wide bores. I also noticed that longer tips (deeper insertion) help to boost the soundstage a bit.

 

Hope this helps.

OK, I'll make sure to try out your suggestions during the weekend. Thanks!
