- I have owned Creative EP630 and Soundmagic PL18 before having these pairs. Brainwavz Alpha sounds better than those two in my taste.
- more than 2 year(s)
- They produce a really nice sound. Clear but also enough bass for comfortable listening to house and techno. It's a really nice design and they won't break down fast. Used them over a year now.
- I've owned one of these for about a year now. These are entry-level Brainwavz IEMs and it is priced accordingly when compared to the other models.
I'd consider these to be IEMs for rough use and the ones where you would go through 2-3 pairs a year. The packaging is very basic but it comes with a lot of tips for you to try on.
SQ-wise, it's good but not great for something in the $15-$20 price bracket. Like many of its competitors, it is heavy on bass and light on detail. Don't get me wrong because I'm comparing them to pricier IEMs, but you do get what you pay for.
So if you're looking for cheap IEMs and love heavy bass, these are for you. Otherwise, check out the pricier Brainwavz models.
- I have bought over 10 pairs for myself and my friends! Headphones are excellent and justify the price by 100%. In contrast to the armature, the sound is balanced, although less detailed. As far as I know, only one broke. My live more than a year and feel good. The only thing I replaced the tips on a more hard from noname earphones. You can also use the ear hooks (from PL50).
- Very fun and warm sound. Sounds amazing with mobile phone, they do not need additional amp. In my opinion they sound best in metal and electronic music, for jazz or classical i prefer my BW Beta.
- I bought this for my friend since she always on budget and never believe how good the sound an earphone can produce. However, she was impressed! It has good bass and clear mid and high as compared to her stock earphone.
After few months of usage and well burned in, she is enjoying every minutes and let see if she will venture for better earphone soon.
- I got these bundled with a Tablet.
I used them right after my M1 died. The sound was bad at first, but found out later that they REALLY need the burn in process, after some time they sound great.
Compared to the M1 there's not a huge difference in sound, but I liked the M1 better. If you are on short budget get this all the way.
Construction wise, the rubber in the cable is quite soft, in that point the M1 are lot better. The soft rubber make them tangle quite easy like most cheap earphones, but is not such a big con.
These were killed by my kittens, they cut the cable in 3 different parts 3 different times, though I solder them I ended replacing the cable with the one of my M1 and they still work great.
For the price, you cant go wrong with these.
- After my sennheiser CX300 broke, that i used for during exercise and other rough activities, my quest started to find a cheap iem with good sound, comfort and isolation.
So i bought the klipsch X1, sound was okey, isolation was great but they wall very easily out of my ears and they stick out of my ears to much.
Then i bought the meelec m6, comfort and fit where great, isolation was okey but the sound was not what i was looking for. It was to much V shaped.
Then I came a cross the brainwavz alpha and all I can say is that I am very happy with them and that I have complete my quest. They are very comfortable, some times I have to check if they are still in my ears :P, you can wear the over the ear so they don't fall out of the ears while exercising. Isolation is good enough and the sound is very good for the price, nice bass treble is a bit lacking but cant complain at this price . The durability is also very good, I have been using them for about a half year very roughly and they still work perfectly.
btw these are also the cheapest of all three of them.
