Great in ear at a really great price

Posted

Pros: neutral sound, build quality, comfort, isolation, great price

Cons: sometimes can be a touch cold and dry, but you can't really complain for the price.

I was offered to review these for Brainwavz and I agreed. I am not affiliated with the company, and have no bias towards or against them. This review will be my unbiased opinion on these.   Packaging & accessories:   They come packaged in a mostly clear plastic box. Inside is their newer style semi-rigid carrying case with the earphones themselves, some tips, a shirt clip. I'm not really one to care for packaging, it gets thrown out after you open everything up anyway. The supplied accessory kit is pretty standard for what you'd find included with pretty much every IEM. The case is nice, and I always like to have a shirt clip so we're good there. The supplied tips I was...

Beefy bulletproof little headphone hanger

Posted

Pros: compact, simple, all metal, overbuilt, rock solid, not bad to look at, inexpensive price

Cons: none

I was given this little headphone hanger to review by Brainwavz.    What can I say, it's a headphone hanger that clamps to a shelf (or any surface that has a lip for it to clamp on to) that you can hang headphones off of. I'll keep this simple and throw a few pictures in.   The packaging it comes in is simple but effective and displays the item well enough. To me packaging isn't important, it gets thrown out and is never seen again once the item is taken out of it.   In terms of appearance and use, it's simple, a bit industrial looking(not too flashy), extremely self explanatory in terms of how to set it up and use. It's black with silver hardware. It...

good sound at a great price

Posted

Pros: design, build quality, comfort, sound

Cons: bit too much bass for my preferences

I was asked by Brainwavz to review their new S0 model in ear headphones. This review will be similar to my review of the Brainwavz S5 since to me these sound very similar. I will start off by saying that my prefered sound signature is more inline with the AKG Q701, Brainwavz HM5, and Vsonic GR01, that is to say I prefer a neutral sound. As a reviewer I find it important to note that. I will try to review these the best that I can considering that these do not sound as neutral as I typically like. I will be as objective as I can be.   Anyway... on to the review.   As for build quality they are above average and seem to be very well built and should take some abuse. The wire...

Very good neutral sounding full size closed back headphone

Posted

Pros: comfort, tonality, soundstage, neutrality, isolation

Cons: the included case is useless to me, but that is really it.

I need to start by thanking Brainwavz for the HM5 to review. They had sent me their S5 IEM a couple months back to review, and afterwards had asked me if I was interested in reviewing any other headphones of theirs, and I asked for the HM5. I had always wanted to try one, but had never gotten around to it. I am now wishing that I had gotten one when they first came out. I like it a whole lot.    Packaging - accessories:   The packaging is sufficient and includes two different length cables, an extra set of pads, and a semi-rigid carrying case. My only complaint here is the case. In order to use the case, you have to unhook the cables from the headphone and set the...

A fun, high quality earphone

Posted

Pros: easy to power, comfortable, seem durable.

Cons: too bassy for me, but probably not for most people.

I was contacted by Brainwavz to review their new S5 in ear monitor. The set I received was a full retail package, but was provided to me by the manufacturer free of charge for review purposes. I received the package a few days later, listened to it for an hour or two that night, then let it burn in for just over 200 hours with a few quick listens within those 200 hours. After 200 hours of burn in I've listened to them a bit and feel I'm ready to give them a review.   I will start this review by saying that my sound preference is leaning towards a neutral and detailed sound. I use to like lots of bass as a kid, and as a teenager, then in my mid 20's starting slowly favoring a more...
