very impressive set of earphones that I would recommend
on 20 June 2014
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.
A 6.3mm adapter and the Airplane adapter, when they come with all these bits you know the manufactures has put a lot of thought in to the product with the end user in mind.
Plugged these in to my Ipod and popped on my trance album which give any ear or headphones a good test.
The earphones didn’t disappoint not only is build excellent so is the sound, you can tell they are dual drive, very good defined bass with a nice edge to the treble from the tweeter, balanced perfectly.
Thought I would try a bit of Led Zeppelin as I find most earphones miss a lot of the guitar sounds from the music and only pick the bass as the main theme, although not perfect they are some of the best earphones I have heard playing Stairway to Heaven, they picked up the plucking of the strings and came to life when the drums kicked in, very impressed, so much so I played the same track three times, I used a pair of Sony’s that cost near to eighty pounds and they couldn’t cope Led Zeppelin, the bass was dull and missed loads of the high end sound, the Brainwavz R1 wiped the floor with them for sound
I’ve heard a few earphones over the years, I’ve worked in the audio and Vision sector for the last 30 years, retail and service, I’ve sold earphones that have cost 99p (they were never any good) and earphones at a couple of hundred pounds, some have blown my socks off others have left me feeling that I’m glad I didn’t pay that for them. The Brainwavz didn’t blow my socks off but they have come pretty close.
The Brainwavz are better than the price you are paying, these should be around the sixty pounds mark, so much thought has gone in to the product, not only sound but how they feel, they fit in your ear and you don’t know you have them in, the cable loops around your ear which stops it flapping about, brilliant.
These are a very impressive set of earphones that I would recommend, I would be very happy to sell if I was still in retail, I know that the customer would be very happy and be back for more.
