Review of Brainwavz headphones B200: a Source:

It Seems that Brainwavz found a new niche, you are going to take care of, in — ear headphones with balanced armature. The company has been nothing presented in this segment, and there were just three models, identical in everything except the stuffing. I have already discussed, the time came .

Developers Brainwavz decided not to bother and made all the line «valves» same case, same box and even one for all the package. Such thrift is quite justified in the budget segment, but for the B200 in the company want the full $ 200, but it is quite another level of prices, enough to look at , to understand what this category can offer the buyer. Of course, Brainwavz often run sales, surely they will affect the flagship model, but it is a question of the future, in the meantime I assume is declared on the official website of the value.

But let us all not to judge a book by its cover, it is necessary to get acquainted closer with headphones.

Packing and delivery

Box here, same with the younger models: black with maroon design. Printing is minimalistic, but interesting textures looks good. In the box is a great hard case, which are the headset, 6 pairs of nozzles of three different sizes, a pair of Comply foams™, clothespin for attaching the cable to clothing, tightening-Velcro for winding wires. Also included are miscellaneous instructions garantiyschikami.

By the Way, Brainwavz gives their models a 24-month warranty, which inspires faith in their durability.

If we evaluate the package, for $ 100 B150 it was good for a $ 50 B100 — well, but for the current model — this is not enough.

the

Design and usability

The appearance of the headphones also unchanged relative to the models cheaper. The same glossy plastic casing in black, the same chamfers and bevels, in General designers are not strained (and you could even color change). The build quality is OK, but not perfect — there are small flaws in the casting.

B200 worn behind the ear way and with a sound channel provide isolation above average, especially when using duplancich attachments (which you have to find somewhere separately, because in the kit they are not). Worn they are very comfortable and the ears are almost.

Wire is a moderately thin and non-replaceable, it is not too hard in the cold and almost not entangled, the microphone effect is small, due to behind-the-ear wearing. Of course, in this price category already want to have the option to swap the wires in case of damage, but Brainwavz has decided that users will be enough and 2-year warranty. On the wires near the buildings formed ear pieces for a comfortable fit, they do not have a memory effect, they can not be bent, but with their task, they do well.

In General, there headphones a bit not up to competitors in the price category.

the

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 role of portable players
  • the
  • Recording high-resolution Lossless-formats (Dr. Chesky have The Ultimate Headphone Demonstration Disc and others)

Brainwavz have decided that for the B200 is better suited to «spectacular» sound, and this has made the headphones a little more deep bass and accurately «cleaned» HF above about 3 kHz. The result is very funny, from time to time I caught myself thinking that the sound B200 is not true, but interesting.

NCH here a lot, and they go deep down, delighting fans of the low-frequency drone that love often mistake to consider subbasal. Bass here, a little reinforcement is a little dry, but only slightly, on the other hand, headphones are pleasing to the speed and elaborate textures, this is their Forte. Because of the dryness sometimes in the B200 shock is not enough «fat», but this is largely kompensiruet component of the deep bass range.

SCH traditionally, valves are good, but sometimes attention to itself, pulls «the lower WOOFER» (sorry for this tautology), and therefore headphones mostly sound a bit «smooth» without an accent on mikrokontrolleri and sharp overdeterminacy. Resolution midrange is good, but not extraordinary, there is the traditional reinforcement of drivers effectively, but no frills. An imaginary scene somewhere in the middle of the width and a little less than average in depth. Elaboration of plans is very decent.

HF is also made in nonprestressed way, they are well marked, although slightly simplified and «tidy», in order not to strain the listener. So to say that there are no RF will not work, but air and lightness to the compositions lacking a pity, because this would help to compensate for the WOOFER.

If you compare with B150 B200 (I see no reason to paint a ton of comparisons, the B200 is quite specific in character), B200 deeper bass and a little drier, a little more emotional midrange and a bit more treble, although both models are not the best choice for connoisseurs «top».

the

Compatibility

The Absence of a headset on a wire clearly gives us to understand that the headphones are positioned as the solution to the initial-middle segment, not just smartphones tablets.

Stylistically I would recommend them to any music, except the very brutal styles of metal and orchestral classics, there is a lack of high frequency too much will be felt.

the

Insights

Interesting sound model in the range Brainwavz, tarnished by the desire to save money. If the ergonomics and overall sound this model may relate to its price range, here is a set of delivery and design could do better. However, headphones still want to choose by sound, not by sight, and then the B200 can please (though not all).
