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. Bass is very well controlled despite the amount. Mids are neither forward nor laid back, perhaps slightly boosted in upper registers. Highs are actually well extended, but overshadowed by the huge bass.
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: I did a ton of digging for a mid level IEM. After reading Joker's IEM reviews of over 190 IEM's I decided on the M2 for 3 reasons. 1.) No section of the spectrum was tremendously recessed 2.) The clarity is top notch 3.) The quality vs price was phenomenal I listen to these 4 hours a day at work and every time I put them in I am amazed at how well they sound. The bass extends nicely and does not distort. It remains impactful and in place, not boomy.
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. The accessories include three sizes of hybrid tips and three sizes or foam tips (they are similar to olive tips).
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. I was clear with MP4Nation that I would be completely honest in my review, good or bad. To which they responded they would want it no other way.
Build wise I am very impressed with the M2.
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. I received these as a free review sample, but they did not buy any special favors.
The build quality is not bad for a budget IEM.
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.
Before I carry on my main music genres are; heavy metal, indie/electro pop, punk, trance, house
The bass on these headphones is great, I like the amount of bass there is, there isn't LOTS of...
Pros: Nice build, excellent included tips, great sound
Cons: small selection of tips, included case is a bit fiddly to get the headphones into
Summary: First thing I spotted was how loud they where and the 1 set of Comply Foam Tips was a bonus, but the others are hard to get on I found. I would not say there the most comfortable head phones in the world but OK. I don't know much about headphones but thought the base was clean and good. Also depends what you listen to them from IE a phone may not be as good as a mp3 player or computer.
Summary: The Brainwavz M2 (AKA - ViSang R03) are possibly the best IEM/Canalphones you can get for running. I don't know of any other type of in-ear headphones with a thick, double helix, cable like these. They are a sensible price too, with the price here being easily cheaper than anywhere on the internet right now (£30).
