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.
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
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.
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
