Brainwavz S3 Silver Bullet Review

Posted

Pros: Balanced General Sound Signature, Durable Build, Good Mic/controls, Usual Solid Accessory Pack

Cons: S-Series Getting Old Without Much New Here, Fit Is Not Optimal For Best Sound and Comfort

 This is my review for the new S3 from Brainwavz. Nicknamed the silver bullet for it's silver color and long slender shape. Thanks to Brainwavz for the S3 review sample. I have previously had the S0, S1, and S5 models. The S3 is rumored to be last in the S series line and now brings the Clearwavz remote and mic for Apple iOS products. The S3 retails for $79.50. The S3 can be found here:   http://www.brainwavzaudio.com/collections/earphones/products/brainwavz-s3-earphones   Specifications Drivers: Dynamic, 8 mm Rated Impedance: 16 Ω Frequency Range: 16 Hz ~ 22 kHz Sensitivity: 96 dB at 1 mW Rated Input Power: 10 mW Cable: 1.3 m Y-Cord, Copper Plug: 3.5 mm, Gold...

Posted

Pros: High Quality Sound, Stable Fit, Sweatproof, Strong Build, 2 Year Warranty, Android Phone Controls/mic

Cons: Longer Learning Curve For Fit, Ear Fins Can Become Uncomfortable

Brainwavz Zoning In: The Enjoyable S5

Posted

Pros: Well done mixture of likable sound qualities. Good comfort. Solid build quality.

Cons: More rubbery cable sheath not the best for noise and cable weight never lets you forget it is there. Gray tips may hurt air and clarity.

Brainwavz have been around since 2008 and have been working on providing improved and more original products as time has gone on. If you are familiar with the last round of Brainwavz offerings it was easy to see how they were improving and what they were attempting to try design-wise. We did see a very wide range of products from the brand in the Delta, S1, and R3. Fairly unique from each other in design, sound, and price. They have now introduced the S5 model priced at ~$99 with an excellent blend of sound traits, design, and quality. Many thanks to Audrey for sending me a pair of the S5.   The S5 page:  http://www.yourbrainwavz.com/s5.html     Specification...
