- Nice IEM for the priceReview by Martin
I'm impressed with the quality of the product and the accessories when the low price is taken into consideration.
They have a nice warm sound so it sounds nice with most music - even if it's low quality / low bitrate.
the perfect IEM for on the go without having to worry about them getting lost or stolen. (Posted on 3/6/13)

- Great sound for a low priceReview by Olexandr
When i listened it for a some time i liked it much. Very powerfull and enough detailed sound. Right from the box it's a bit harsh. But later it becomes more slightly. Also there is almost incredible soundstage. Wide and deep enough. And different sound effects makes me feel WOW!
Actually it's not as good as much more expencive Vsonic or brainwavz m3 that i heared.
But as for 20$ it's just outstanding. (Posted on 1/10/13)

What a difference! I couldn't belive my ears, rich bass and clear treble, they were no match to my old earphones and at a third of the price. Best buy for my money, I am definetely recommending them to my friends in Greece.

- Very good earphonesReview by Francisco
- Great budget iemReview by Pakoboy
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. (Posted on 11/9/12)
- Nice sound for a nice priceReview by Jeroen
The only downside is that the plug is not working properly anymore, there are some copperwires broken so the left side is not working for the moment.
At first the sound was not that great but you really need to burn them for having a good sound. I think the Alpha performs good for the cheaper classes and outperforms a lot of its competitors.
I will try to fix my Alpha in the meantime, but I'm going to buy a new pair and see how long those will last. For me its durability is far beyond my previous earphones.

- Great for the priceReview by Patricio
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. (Posted on 10/14/12)

- Excellent Budget IEMReview by sobriety
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. (Posted on 9/7/12)
- Great Budget SetReview by Stumpy
The Highs. Decent detail. Never gets to bright.
The Mids: Not recessed, you get a very good representation of what the musicians wanted you to hear.
The Lows: Not a ton of bass, but what you hear is quality. No distortion.
These IEMs are a NO-Brainer for the price. I would highly recommend these.

- Best budget IEMReview by BamboszeK
- Great for it price and even betterReview by Denis
- Good earphones for the priceReview by bottomcoughs
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. (Posted on 8/5/12)
