  • Summary: I don't normally write reviews so I'll be all over the place but here we go:     I listen to mostly electronic music. No specific genre in it, but it ranges from Ambient to very hard stuff (think The Bloody Beetroots).   These are able to keep up with my ears. I'm not highly picky with my audio but these please me greatly for their portable usage.   My home pair of cans are Sony XB-700's paired to an Asus Xonar DGX.
  • Pros: Crisp highs and bass that fits my music
  • Cons: Lack of mids, odd shape, and possible build quality issues.

  • Summary: unlike the Brainwavz M4 & Xiaomi Piston, this one finally brings something worthy to our ears. when you plug these in your ears, first you'll notice the wide soundstage which especially shines in depth. this was the first earphone i've used which incorporates such amount of mid layering in this price range. it's very alike to the Vsonic GR02 in this manner. you can easily feel different frequency segments appear in different layers back and fourth.
  • Pros: Soundstage has good depth, Bass is big sounding, Treble has enough seperation.
  • Cons: Needs amplifier to reach high volume, Needs equalizer correction due to 2khz hump, Build quality does not shines.

  • Summary: I'll start of by saying these are a pair of really respectable headphones and these are my subjective opinion on them. At their price point, I think you'll be hard pressed to find anything better without going higher in pricing They perform well for their price. All in all, a good pair of headphones just for casual everyday listening of music.
  • Pros: Good Soundstage (wider than deep), Great bass without bleeding off into mids, decent clarity, surprisingly 'durable', lots of earbuds, clamshell case
  • Cons: Not the most agile/articulate sounding, cheap looking build, thin cable, memory cable

  • Summary: I just can't imagine anyone, no matter what music he/she enjoys, finding these to be a pleasant listen. FLAT, cardboard sound to my ears. Who likes flat sound? The fit is not good, as they are unbalanced and want to topple out of the ear.
  • Pros: none

  • Summary: Hello all head-fiers out there reading or seeing my review. You may ask who is this random guy writing a review? Here I am doing so anyways since this headphone isnt reviewed often and only has one review. I come from a family of sound engineers that have taught me in depth of what sound is supposed to sound really and all that basic and advanced stuff on sound. My mom and her brother are both sound engineers.
  • Pros: Sound Quality, Comfort, Case
  • Cons: Cable tangling

  • Summary: Overall, I find these headphones eh for it's price. Comparing them to the Image S2m, they sound more expansive. On depth however, the S2m sound more full at equal volumes without an amp or EQ. The R1s lack clarity and quality when compared to the S2ms, but at higher volumes, can make up for their loss of depth, and with extra spacious sound, immediately become more deep. Bass is strong, sometimes even distorting the music, and parts of the mids sound recessed.
  • Pros: Soundstage/positioning, decent for instrumental music with a punch, deep and strong bass
  • Cons: Distorting, too much bass, sibilant, recessed mids, below average for rock and melody of different genres of music

Sensitive to choice of silicone buds and positioning

Adrian Pope, Amazon

  • Summary: I found it quite fiddly to try the various ear buds, since holes were a tight fit on the plastic tip, but I finally settled on the double flange ones, which I set slightly off the end of the plastic tip. If I move them a fraction off the perfect position the sound loses quite a lot of the bass, but that will probably come with practice. I find that there is a slight discomfort in the ears after about 3 hours listening, possibly because I am jamming them too far in.

Best earphones under £50!!

  • Summary: Initially bought the Soundmagic earphones after reading several reviews but sent it back because I hated the sound quality. I bought these and all I can say is WOW!! Amazing bass, mid and highs! Can't believe how cheap they were but sounds like something that should cost twice as much.

  • Summary: First impressions of the R1 Brainwavz is how nice they look and build quality seems better than the price of the products, they give the impression of being twice the price. Opening the box you will find 1 pair of Comply foam tips 6 Pairs of ear tips in small medium and large and a pair of Bi-Flange tips. Lots of ideal combination so you will always be sure it fits you.
