The Brainwavz S0 headphone review — for the masses

I Think that the company Brainwavz lengthy submissions are not needed. Already for a long time they delight connoisseurs of portable audio wide range of products of varying degrees of popularity. Today we will talk about their headphones Brainwavz S0 taken as close as possible to the classics IEM.

In this case, any know-how in the model, it is usual «gag», the classic internally: 9 mm dynamic driver, and externally. The price tag is relatively affordable, asking for them $ 50, instead of offering a two-year warranty.

Packing and delivery

In the course of this review, this phrase will have to be repeated often, but in terms of packing all the same as the other models of the company. The main box is made of cardboard with a velvety texture, worn on top «jacket», which is due to the material the primary packaging is very difficult to remove without damaging. Inside is a dense nylon bag, which is Packed in the headphones and accessories.

  • the
  • two sets of odnoplanovye 3 pairs of silicone ear tips, different sizes and material
  • the
  • two pairs duplancich attachments
  • the
  • clothespin for fastening to the wire on clothes

Unlike many of its competitors, the tips in the Brainwavz certainly not save.

Design and usability

Appearance headphone will appeal to conservatives and lovers of the classics. Round in cross-section of the housing, tapering to the outer side, made of metal and painted black, providing them with unobtrusive appearance and good reliability. Dimensions of the headphones are quite small, so they are practically without problems sit down in any ears and you can wear them the usual way and passing the wire behind the ear.

The Cable is not replaceable, but Brainwavz have tried to do everything to minimize the probability of failure (remember the 2 year warranty?): everywhere provides a plastic insert to protect from fractures, splitter is a solid, plug — in the same way impressive. The cable is made in the form of a flat «noodles» that on the one hand improves the reliability and reduces the tendency to tangling, but it looks a bit archaic. Cable almost no noise from the friction of the clothes, but the cold is a bit hardens. On the right earbud wire is located three-button headset, compatible with iPhone. Buttons are very comfortable with a nice click as the microphone — medium.

The Overall build quality is very decent, no flaws there. Sound insulation — in a typical form factor.

Sound

To listen To the following equipment was used.

the
    the
  • and the role of the DAC and amplifier
  • the
  • Apple MacBook Pro Retina 2016 as the source
  • the
  • the role player
  • the
  • , and the other in the role of portable players
  • the
  • Recording high-resolution Lossless-formats (Dr. Chesky have The Ultimate Headphone Demonstration Disc and others)

Before listening headphones were heated for 48 hours, changes in the sound were observed.

The sound developers also did not move away from their traditions and, as always, the S series did the tuning, calculated on a mass: accentuated bass, slightly flattened midrange quality treble. Headphones are not super detailed and not the speed, but for simple music the resolution is enough.

Bass normal speed, not ultra fast, not too dull-slow, something in the middle, roughly «.». In General, this characteristic applies to all aspects of NCH, beginning with the separation of instruments and ending with the transfer of textures.

MIDs served in a little relaxed manner that makes them comfortable, but hides microtelnet. Occasionally on mid bit creeps bass, but it doesn't happen often. Headphones normally convey emotion, but the subtle nuances of the record are often lost, however, S0 and not designed for complex genres. The imaginary scene is average in width and slightly less in average depth, but the tools are good.

RF laid by the wayside, making them sound comfort. The attack and decay a little faster than it should be, the resolution is also worthy of the epithet «average», but at least there is no harshness and artificial pumping.

Comparisons I will not paint, I think that the difference with other models can be understood simply by comparing the descriptions of the sound.

the

Compatibility

Of Course, the Brainwavz S0 work well with simple sources like smartphones and inexpensive players, no high-power it is not necessary.

Stylistically headphones created for simple genres, like pop music, no complicated electronics, not the most brutal styles of rock. The quality of the recording they are tolerant, on a 10-point scale of fault-finding they get a maximum of 5.

Insights

A Good implementation of earphone «mass» sound, created for the picky listener, combining
