Summary: These are budget-minded basshead's dream come true. Others might not be satisfied by the bottom-slanted sound, which can be hugely improved with equalization, otherwise they sound dark and laid back. The sound is precise, with engaging musical quality to it.
Pros: Indestructible build, good "musical" sound quality, good soundstage
Cons: Huge bass boost, cable could be more flexible, no neck cable adjuster, wide nozzle, shallow fit only, weird over-the-ear fit
Summary: Well after a good lengthy burn in (100hrs or so) I feel I am ready to write my full review of the Brainwavz M2. I would like to thank MP4Nation for sending me a pair of the M2 to review. To make it clear, I received this IEM for free, in exchange for a review by me.
Summary: I've had the Brainwavz M2 here for several weeks, and I'm sorry that I haven't had the time to post my thoughts on them sooner, but I'm doing so now after enjoying them the whole time. My Star rating is against other IEM in the $100 and under range.
Pros: warm, fun and spacious sounding
Cons: slightly boosted bass that could use more control
Summary: I've had the Brainwavz M2 for a few days now, I haven't stopped listening to them, for me the sound is very pleasing before I ordered I worried that they might not suit me, but after many hours of listening I decided that they suit me very well and I like the sound they produce.
Pros: Nice build, excellent included tips, great sound
Cons: small selection of tips, included case is a bit fiddly to get the headphones into
Brainwavz M2 is the repackaged version of ViSang R03 with identical IEM component. These are quite comfortable, but they are not light per se. I also decided to (carefully) cut off one-fifth of the length of the long strain-reliefs.
Conclusion: Well, this about sums it up. I’m quite impressed by the engineering efforts that went into these IEMs, and thanks to Brainwavz/MP4Nation the world outside of China can enjoy them as well.
Pros: Natural, relaxed, clear sound with forward yet refined bass, Good fit and comfort, Nice looks, nice choice of materials, Included silicone tips are very good, clones of Sony EP-EX10, Great value for the price
Cons: Treble might be a bit too recessed for some tastes, at least at lower listening levels, Dynamics could be a bit better at lower listening levels, Cable tangles easily and is more microphonic than average
Summary: i'm not sure what brainwavz trying to do with their M series. if they already can do things like beta, R1 or S1 what they're trying to do with their M series ? are they trying to sell some cheap drivers to newbies ? if so, i'm not sure if this is a proper way to make money, really... whatever.
Cons: Extremely weak bass. Absolutely zero acoustic for instruments.
