Excerpt: The B2s are BrainWavz's foray into the higher caliber audiophile class of audio products. Their previous IEMs were focused on bass, bass, and a lot more bass. They enjoyed great success with their M(1, 2, 3) series, by providing exceptional detail for the price range, and subsequently, went on to...
Summary: When I first got these, I was a bit unsure as to how to put them in my ears, but I managed to find out after a quick search. I remember when I first listened to them, I felt that they sounded atrocious. The bass was alright, but the cymbals were very harsh.
Pros: SQ, Detail, Pretty Good Soundstage, Cheaper Than Fischer DBA-02 MKII
Cons: Can Be A Bit Sibilant, Bass A Tiny Bit Lacking, Midrange Slightly Recessed
Summary: I originally purchased the B2 after hearing good reports about the DBA2 - and hearing that these were a clone. The early reviews talked about an IEM that had a very neutral well balanced sound, and did everything well.
Pros: Great balance, well built, good isolation, good cabling. very good SQ
Summary: Hello all!
I have now had about two weeks (now five) to gather impressions on these IEMs, and they have been fully burnt in with pink noise/ normal listening. All testing will be done with FLAC files run through Foobar 2000 with the wasapi plugin, through my STX, on the Hi-Fi setting.
Pros: Percussive impact Balanced sound Soundstage (relative to the general amount in an IEM) Instrument separation Clarity Speed Value
Cons: Somewhat cheap feeling housing. Sub-bass has a fair amount of distortion. Comply tip wears out quickly, only one included.
Summary: Hi Head-fi, welcome to my first ever IEM review!
I feel I should review these before getting my HD600s, because these probably won't get as much head time after that.
I picked up these IEMs used from a fellow head-fier exactly 5 months ago.
Summary: Hello and welcome to my first Head-Fi review...ever!
Having owned the Brainwavz B2 for around seven months, I have had enough time with them to write an honest, unbiased review; albeit a brief one.
Pros: Amazingly detailed and sparkly highs; fluent and detailed, slightly forward mids; tight, punchy and detailed bass.
Cons: Bass doesn't extend very far; slightly sibilant when using silicone tips; cable could use an outer wrapper.
Summary: Summary of my experience with these:
Build: Feels cheap and plasticky. In fact the box appears better made than the earphones. :)
Treble: Very detailed, forward and sharp. No real sibilance BUT is very fatiguing after even after short listening sessions
Mids: Again very detailed but there appears to...
Pros: Fantastic detailing, layered and open presentation
Cons: Extremely bright. Non existent bass even after trying 7 different tips
Summary: Just got my Brainwavz B2 and find the details better than my S4i. Compared to my HD 598, obviously they are not as wide, but they are deep, a bit wider than my ATH-M50. They do sound pretty bright, perhaps even lacking in the depth of the sound, but much more tolerable than the R1s.
Pros: 360 surrounding instrumental music sounds amazing, easy to power, analytical
Cons: Not as fun/too revealing, sibilant if at high volumes with sibilant music, not perfect seal
Crystal-clear and highly detailed, very enjoyable !

Summary: Amazing sound. Really happy with them, they're as I expected: crystal-clear and very detailed. I personnally don't find them especially tiring but I understand people who do, the details are very present, you can't ignore them. But when you like that can of earphones they're amazing.
