Summary: Originally posted at HeadphoneScout:
Brainwavz is a budget headphone company that offers some of the best bang/buck products on the market. Their M2 and M3 in-ears are a couple of my favorite IEMs under $100 but contrary to intuition the M5 was not meant to their successor (neither was the M4). Instead, Brainwavz has set out to improve on the $30 M1, an IEM whose strengths are comfort and instrument separation.

Summary: I’ve had a couple of Brainwavz earphones and have been really impressed with the sound and the quality, after reading a few of the reviews on the M5’s I was worried that they wouldn’t be any good. On receiving my M5’s I was as always impressed with the packing and they way the look, thought build was very good, I’ve worked in the electric retail trade for near 30 years and have sold and tested 100’s of headphones and earphones and I thought the Brainwavz build was...
Superb sound, don't buy for the remote control functions

Summary: Sound is as advertised around most corners of the internet. Very good bang for the buck! I got a pair without the controller which was the thing that was the whole point for me to get this specific one. Very disappointed when the ad clearly lists it in CAPS of all things. Feel cheated, very frustrated as well. But as said the quality of the IEM's is very very nice.
Summary: PROS: Nice fitting. They don't fall off my ears easily. As a result there is also good sound isolation. Very good sound!! A bit bassy but otherly nice balanced. They come with a nice case and quite a few eartips for best fitting. Microphone and remote button to use as handsfree with iPhone. Best value for money. CONS: Remote button a bit problematic. Sometimes works, sometimes not. I've read lot of users had this problem. Gets tangled easily.
Excerpt: Наушники эти мне понравились в целом, хороший вариант за эту цену. Звучание не ровно-аналитичное и не слишком басовитое – оно тёплое, мелодичное, с ярко выраженным напористым суббасом, смягчёнными верхами. Скорости баса лично мне хватает и на тяжёлой, быстрой музыке. Единственное, что в звуке не нравится – на некоторых записях могут проскочить сибилянты, думаю, качественный источник решит эту проблему.
Pros: Качество звучания на высоком уровне; достойный дизайн; вполне демократичная цена.
Cons: Довольно посредственная изоляция от шумов; кабель среднего качества; треск мембраны во время вставления в ухо.
