    In this video, I unbox the Brainwavz B100 and B200 IEM, show you their construction, and give an overview of how they sound to my ears.
    In general, they share a similar sound signature, which is on the warm/smooth side. The B100 have increased upper mid presence, while the B200 have a slight upper mid dip. This makes female vocals more prominent and gives guitars more bite with B100, whereas B200 sounds more refined and tonally correct to my ears.        
    I recommend both of these. The B100 are an excellent value at $60, a good entry point for people who are interested in trying out BA IEM. I'd probably give them a 4.5/5 star rating on the headfi review scale because of their excellent bang for your buck value. 
    The B200 have some characteristics of much higher-priced multi-BA IEM I've heard, specifically their sense of refinement. They're the IEM I've been choosing to spend more time with out of the two. They're not released yet, but I'm guessing they'll be around the $200 price point. They sound good for that price, but I'd like to see a bit of differentiation in the shell design. I'd probaby give the B200 a 4/5 star rating, maybe 4.5/5 depending on my mood. 
    Overall though, these are two very good releases from Brainwavz. Thanks to Pandora for giving me the chance to listen to test them out and provide my opinion on them to the community!
    Thanks for watching, and until next time... Happy Listening!!!
    EDIT: Here are links to posts in @crinacle's IEM measurement thread where I measured B100 (LINK) and B200 (LINK).

    Tossed in the B100 tonight after spending a good bit of time with the FLC 8s (Gold/Grey/Red config primarily) recently. Held up pretty darn well to that $300+ hybrid juggernaut. Brainwavz did a seriously amazing job on the B100.

    Ehi guys, my Brainwavz b100 is here. Initially disappointed for a little distortion in the mids whenn the bass kicks hard, i discovered that this in ear need a lower volume to really shine. In fact the initial volume was really insane. These guy has a single ba that extends very well in both ends, and due to their high sensitivity, they need a very low amount of juice to really shine. 3/4 of volume from my ipad is enough to have a good volume without any distortion. Spacious sound, good bass without any mid bass bloat (more in quantity than re-400 which i define anemic in this range), balanced mids, very smooth but plenty of detail and, mos importantly, tonally correct from bass-baritone voices to violins. The highs are full but the cymbals sound a little bit "generic". I can hear the difference between a china plate and a crash, but in both case i have a a silky sensation. It is not a veil, just the upper midrange have a little more presence than the highs in their whole articulation. Coming from the excellent srh940 (slightly bright) this is more evident, but in a positive way: sometimes you want to relax and have less detail banged in your face. This signature avoids any risk of sibilance too. They create a very well defined image, with a precise and focused centre and a clearly decentrated instruments you can focus at cause of the non-invasive midrange. I really like this kind of signature when i am around the world. And since i falled in love with AKG N40 in 2 somptuous hours of immersive listening in a hong kong shop, and decided i can't spend the 400 euro for it, i bought this very little brother of Akg's. I think they are worth the 50 euros i spent and it can compete very well with The iems in the 100-150 dollars range.

    has anyone compared them to meze 11 neo or meze 12 classics?

    Unfortunately, after 20 day of intense use, the left side started to rattling a lot...

    Can someone help me here? I already own the Brainwavz M2 and am disappointed with them, I bought them in ignorance, now I have a better understanding of what I want from IEMs. I prefer more balanced detail as I listen to instrumental music and jazz vocals and found the M2s were not good with these types of music they are too bass focused.

    However being simply balanced headphones is not the end of the story. I like ones with an engaging stereo imaging too. I've had some balanced IEM that has good detail but are boring and not engaging enough and I'm guessing that's to do with the quality of stereo imaging?

    So anyways does anybody think these headphones are much better for my tastes compared to M2?

    yes for sure. but i have some doubts about the reliability of this product. i would say that the re-400 from hifiman is another choice, but it suffers from the same problem. it seems that we must spend double the cost if ee want a good sound in a good construction. take a look on fidelio s1. the following list will clarify my tastes:

    What problems did you have with your Brainwavz build quality? I've got most of their releases and I haven't had a single problem with them and would say that they're very reliable. The RE-400 on the other hand is notorious for having very poor quality control......
