1.0 out of 5 stars Glue failed, earphone fell apart
Fell apart after 3 weeks of regular use. The glue on the left earphone has failed so the metal casing is separated. Was also an issue of it not sounding quite as good as the right hand side before it broke…

However, the right hand side seems sturdy enough so it maybe just a defective unit, but with only one side usable its not really worth the money.

This review is from: Brainwavz Delta IEM Earphones (Electronics)
Brainwavz have a great reputation for producing more affordable audiophile quality earphones and these Deltas are no exception.

They come very well presented in a nice box.

In the box you find -

- The Delta in earphones with a 1.3 meter cable with a standard 3.5mm jack plug which is gold plated and they use pure copper oxygen free cable.

- Earbuds - three sets of silicone buds. Sizes small, medium and Large plus one set of Comply foam earbuds which reportedly provide a better outside noise cancelling experience

- Instruction leaflet

The Deltas have been very well designed in my opinion. I've gone through many a pair of in ear earphones being a cyclist/hiker/climber on and off over the last 30 odd years. They've all bit the dust as they get soaked in sweat that just corrodes them and they snap. These look like they should wear well.

They're made from Aluminium and are well engineered to a lovely finish. I personally love the touches of red at the end of the ear-tubes! The cable has very good flexible rubber strain reliefs on it which I like a lot and should extend the life of the earphones for ruffians like me! They took a bit of fiddling with to get the fit just right in trying the different buds out but once sorted they are spot on. I personally like the Comply buds.

In use -

The important bit - how they sound! I do not claim to be an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination but. . .as a poor visioned spectacles wearer my hearing is has become enhanced to almost Spiderman like capability and I know a good quality sound when I hear it and these Deltas give a very good clarity sound out.

I've listened to quite a few pieces of music through these and one thing has become apparent - Most people I imagine nowadays listen to their music on some digital format (I do) and don't even realise what bit-rate settings they have their music files set to. You need to be listening to a quality recording to appreciate these fully as with any decent head/earphones.

We all have our favourite music for testing earphones out which are usually tracks that 'we' know every little nuance of after listening to them 100 times over! In my case I put these earphones through their paces listening to a lot of Beatles, Kraftwerk, 80's Electro, Queen remasters, Simon and Garfunkel and Motown stuff.

I've also used these via my phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 2) to listen to the Tune In Radio app and some podcasts and audio books, Netflix movies which were all superb.

The sound from these is well balanced for all music genres but definitely edging towards vocal/instrumental clarity which is absolutely spot on for the price of these earphones. The bass is good but not as earth shattering as the Brainwavz S1's. The whole kit is well built and feels quality. Very good in earphones at an affordable price.

These earphones were kindly sent to me for test and review purposes.

Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A cut above most budget buds..., 10 May 2014
By 
Mr Baz - See all my reviews
(TOP 1000 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: Brainwavz Delta IEM Earphones (Electronics)
Note the supplier sent me a review sample, no attempt was made to influence my opinion.

The Delta's come in a smaller package, and without a case I assume in order to keep costs down a little. These are the most affordable set of Brainwavz I have used to date. But the good news is that despite the more attractive price, you get a set of nicely made phones (metal casing) and a reasonable selection of tips (3 silicone sizes and the comply foam set)

It's an attractive offering at this price
+ Good build on the main units, metal casing (aluminium)
+ Nice quality 1.3m cable with Y cord adjuster
+ Gold plated 3.5mm plug with good strain relief on all cable points

Once you mix in the selection of tips, it's a strong overall package for the modest price.
Sound wise, this is where many budget phones run into problems. I'm pleased to report the Delta's have a well rounded, good balanced sound.

Bass response is good (but not too strong), as are mids and treble. I would describe the sound as neutral to slightly warm. With good seperation on the channels and clarity/presence. I quite like more netural phones as this doesn't swamp you out with one area (you should adjust the EQ to suit your taste or the song I tend to increase the bass and treble a little on these), having tried a set of JVC HAFX1X Xtreme, I can say that the are all bass and nothing else. The Deltas are much more balanced overall and work very well with a wider variety of music. Esp suited to intrumental songs.

If you like super thumpy bass or very strong treble/or raw sound these are not the buds for you. But if you want a good quality set that sounds good (natural), the Deltas are a good step up over some of the phones at the lower end. The overall quality/package puts some well known makers to shame.

A good set from Brainwavz and priced very well. They get a thumbs up from me

4.0 out of 5 stars Brainwavz Delta IEM Earphones - Very comfortable to wear - Good sound, 11 Aug. 2014
By 
This review is from: Brainwavz Delta IEM Earphones (Electronics)
The in-ear cushions that come with these Brainwavz Delta headphones make them one of the most comfortable sets I have worn. They are very lightweight and, for the price, produce good sound. If you are looking for affordable in-ear headphones that are comfortable to wear but don't break the bank, than I recommend these to you.

Before inserting into your ears, look closely at the sides of each unit to find the very lightly printed L and R... we found that getting the proper earphone into each each does make a significant difference in comfort. Though there are many in-ear headphones available on the market in this price range, these stand out for their comfort and are middle of the road when it comes to fidelity.

Music sources included Amazon's MP3 Cloud, Pandora and our own audio files and we listened to an eclectic selection including Creed, Maroon 5, Green Day, and Molly Hatchett with a little Jack Johnson tossed in, and they all had an upper-range (mid to treble) bias with light bass.

Given their comfort and weight, it was easy to forget about these headphones being on; I wore them for about an hour at a time and they never got hot or uncomfortable to my ears. These earphones come with adapters of different sizes so you should be able to find on that is just right for you.

The retail documentation notes that there is a one year manufacturer's warranty, and it comes with a warranty registration card. If an issue arises before that period expires I will return here to update the review and let you know what the issue was and how resolution was handled. I did receive this unit gratis from the manufacturer, and have put it through the paces to objectively find out how well it performed. My statements here reflect that testing.

If you are looking for affordability in headphones of this style, for use similar to what I have described above, we recommend these Brainwavz Delta earphones to you based on their comfort and ease-of-use. If you seek a higher fidelity experience and have the budget for it, we would also recommend that you try the Brainwavz S1 earphones.

Go for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Performance and value, 15 April 2014
By 
Pepper (Uk) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)    (No. 1 Hall OF FAME REVIEWER)    (TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: Brainwavz Delta IEM Earphones (Electronics)
I was contemplating how good these earphones would be at the price - once they arrived any doubts I had were dispelled. In common with their more expensive Brainwavz siblings the presentation of these earphones is excellent - the part transparent box front really shows off the earbuds which are made from aluminium and are finished with red ends/cable strain reliefs. In the box you get the Delta Earphones plus 3 sets of silicon ear tips - small, medium and large, a set of Comply Foam Tips and instructions plus a one year warranty. The 1.3 metre cord is just the right length for most applications and is a "Y" design which ensures minimal intrusion by the cable. The cord also has business-like strain relief at either end and terminates in a gold plated 3.5mm audio jack - the cabling looks as though it will last.

The thing that Brainwavz seem to understand well is that with earphones like this the seal between the earbud and the ear will be a big determinant of sound quality especially the bass. The range of ear tips supplied should help you achieve an efficient seal. Additionally, if the seal is good sound leakage is minimised reducing annoyance to others on trains and buses etc. - providing you choose the right ear tip for you the sound leakage of these phones is quite low.

I tried these headphones with my mobile phone, laptop and iPod using a range of music from pop to classic and was amazed by the quality considering the price. The bass is firm but not too boomy and the clarity of the midrange/treble give both orchestral music and vocals real presence. The overall soundstage is airy too. I also agree with other reviewers that the volume can be turned up quite loud before these phones distort significantly.

Despite their "value" pricing these earphones really deliver and far exceed anything I've ever bought even at double the price. Of course you'll hear a difference if you switch to a pair of audiophile phones costing several times the price of these Brainwavz Delta IEMs but the price/performance ratio they achieve is exceptional. The other practical point is the Deltas are ideal for people who tend to mislay headphones - these are economically enough priced not to break the bank if you lose them but are still highly listenable. It's hard to think how you'd do better at the price in terms of sound quality and build. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Budget earphones that don't sound budget, 6 May 2014
By 
Peter (United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: Brainwavz Delta IEM Earphones (Electronics)
These are sensible earphones giving a good sound and, with a decent Y-shaped cord and a 3.5mm stereo jack.

They have some red detailing, and they are made of metal, not plastic. Besides the normal small/medium/large silicone "tips", there's also a set of foam tips that completely block your ear canal to give much better sound isolation and a much better bass effect. Its the inclusion of these foam tips that make all the difference in the sound quality.

For the very reasonable price these are well-made earphones that sound good. I do prefer the Brainwavz S1 Over The Ear IEM Earphones when I'm working in the garden, but they are (a) more expensive and (b) a bit too bulky for casual use.

Note: Brainwavz sent me a pair of these earphones for review.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Performing Budget Set of Earphones., 1 April 2014
By 
Glenn Cook (South Cave, near Hull UK) - See all my reviews
(HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (VINE VOICE)    (TOP 50 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Brainwavz Delta IEM Earphones (Electronics)
Brainwavz manufacture some really excellent headphones.
I have received 3 sets so far for review and these, although at the budget end of the range, are an excellent set.

To contrast my review from other reviewers I will write this review as I think it will be most useful.

Maybe not as technical as others but as I see it.

Appearance- The Eyes Have it.
The first thing that strikes you about these headphones is that the box that they come in looks food.
Don't make the assumption that the box is secondary.
If this is a gift then the first thing the receiver sees is the box.
The makers have spared no cost here it looks expensive in a smart Black, Red and white with a silver holographic logo on the front.
The ear phones themselves are seen in all their glory via the clear plastic window on 3 sides.
The makers want you to see just how good they look and it works they are impressive.

Open the Box.
When you take them out they feel good.
Again this is important - teens are really fashion and looks conscious. And believe me, teenagers are pretty picky about image, I as know from being the parent of a typical 17 year old son!
If they look and feel cheap they will not be wanted nor used and you will have wasted your money.
The ear phones look and ooze quality.

Now something that was common and applicable to all the headphones I have reviewed is this is this.
If you are buying these for a present to some one they would be mightily impressed with the obvious quality of the head set.
And believe me, teenagers are pretty picky about image, I as know from being the parent of a typical 17 year old son!
The box has the correct spelling too- again I need to explain.
Quite a lot of electrical items from China, although really great products, are let down by bad spelling, terrible punctuation and look as if they have been translated from Mandarin into Portuguese back in to Mandarin then into English.
this gives a really bad first impression and as the old saying goes 'you never get a second chance to make a first impression.'
These headphones look really smart.

Where these ear phones will really score is with their attention to detail and comfort.
You get a full set of three silicone ear tips in small medium and large and, if that were not enough, 1 set of comply(tm) foam tips S series.
You really can experiment until you get the most comfortable set for you.
Although there a budget price no expense has been spared.

BUT all the above is pure cosmetics.
What counts is the sound.

The Sound.
The base is really impressive and not at all 'tinny'. I like progressive rock, Frank Zappa and Leon Redbone with Depeche Mode, King Crimson and Black along the way.
And that s covers quite a spectrum.
All were handled really well with the base being excellent on the heavier rock sounds whilst Leon Redbone's vocals were brilliant!
I can honestly say that these really do betray their resonable price and beat the sound of much more expensive headphones.
I had to check and recheck the price because believe me these sound really expensive.

Technical.
My sound system at home has Oxygen Free Copper cables (bought from Richer Sounds by the meter). The sound transfer is better. All the experts agree not just me.
I have a Brennan J7 too.
Again no expense has been spared for these leads are oxygen free copper too when you couple that with aluminum heads and the fact that the headphones fit and fit well you have a really excellent set of headphones.

Guarantee
This is a 12 month long one.
If you look after them and handle them with care then that along with the 'strain relief attachments mean you should get your moneys worth out of them.*

Now my biggest problem is hiding them away from my teen aged son!

*And yes I realise that this is ironic because mine were free to review.
A Great Performing Budget Set of Earphones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't go wrong for that price, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brainwavz Delta IEM Earphones (Electronics)
I change my earphones quite frequent and my general rule is that I don't spend more than 50$.
This one is brilliant for the price, well balanced, good bass, nice treble. I can compare them with RHA MA350 (too much bass, not balanced, loud cord, uncomfortable) and they are way better. If I lost/damage them I will buy another pair.

pros:
- really nice, balanced sound
- comfortable
- good sound isolation
- long cable (soft, no cracking noise from rubbing against clothes)
- look good
- all metal housing (should last long)
- price!!!

cons:
- could play a little more clearly (but for the price I can't complain)

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthy contender for a pair of headphones that you can take anywhere, 9 Mar. 2015
By 
Denis Vukosav - See all my reviews
(TOP 50 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
Brainwavz Delta Black IEM Earphones are cool looking headphones, fit well to the listener ears and look solid and durable.

The headphones come in package box that includes headphones, 1 pair of foam S-series tips, 3 pair of silicone tips and user guide. The package is small but protects content well from the possible damage during transport. The headphones are compatible with almost any devices such as iPhones, iPads, HTC and Samsung mobiles, desktop and notebook computers, better to say I didn’t have problems using headphones on any.

The sound quality I witness during extensive testing was more than good; actually I was pretty impressed with quality of sound received for the price. In my opinion highs are a bit too much emphasized though I was impressed with middle and low tones. Though that could be seen as personal feelings.

Therefore, Brainwavz Delta Black IEM Earphones are nicely designed simple headphones, pleasant to have in ears that are very close being called excellent in terms of sound quality. And precisely because of their sound, durability, but also the price they could be seen as worthy contender for a pair of headphones that you can take anywhere.

I received a sample of Brainwavz Delta Black IEM Earphones for the purpose of testing and unbiased review, while all the presented information is based on my impressions.

5.0 out of 5 stars very pleased with these well priced well made earphone, 10 April 2014

This review is from: Brainwavz Delta IEM Earphones (Electronics)
There must be 100's of different brand of headphones on the market at this price point and it's very hard to tell what is good and what is not.

This is my second pair of Brainwavz Headphones my others are the Brainwavz S1 Over The Ear IEM Earphones which I use daily. This pair I wanted to keep in my van so I have a pair to hand when the dog needs a walk or I just want to stop for a while.

First impression's and good, the build is nice, the have a silver and red metal effect on the ear pieces which looks nice.

The most important thing is sound quality.
Plugged them in to my Samsung Galaxy S4 and wow, they are nice, all the ranges are delivered with accurate acoustics, clear treble and mid with just the right amount of Bass, I have a sony set of ear phones that I purchased for a similar price a while ago and these are loads better, a joy to listen to.

Brainwavz may be a new brand to me but they know how to produce a product that delivers as it should, very pleased with these well priced well made earphones.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Budget Earphones I Have Used, 21 Jun. 2014
By 
John Kwok (New York, NY USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Brainwavz Delta IEM Earphones (Electronics)
The Brainwavz Delta IEM Earphones are the finest budget-oriented earphones I have used, offering exceptional sound quality with great clarity ranging from bass to treble. For budget-oriented earphones, these are very well made, with metal and plastic construction superior to anything I have seen from the likes of low-end Sony and Panasonic earphones. Speaking of Sony, I used these on an old cheap, Sony Walkman portable radio, and the sound quality for it was by far the best I have ever heard from my old portable radio. Without question, Brainwavz has done a fine job in producing more economy-level earphones with the Brainwavz Delta, offering exceptional sound quality present in other, far more expensive, earphones. (Please note that I had obtained these from the manufacturer in exchange for this review, but it did not bias my testing of it on several laptops as well as the old Sony portable radio.)
