Brainwavz B2 Dual Armature IEM review (updated)(updated AGAIN) - Page 2

post #11 of 16
nope no questions but i havent been sticking with natural FQ's i'v mostly been hardstyle and dubstep through them and they are keeping up beautifully no distortion a little weak on the low end but i knew that when i bought them. the e11's first eq setting is just right for them. and i dont actually find them bright at all. but i have been olnly using the comply's if i switched to a silicone tip i may get those highs back.

sofar im liking them they isolate really well (around 20-25 -dbr)

Maybe bright was the wrong term. I was thinking more aggressive. They're such fast and responsive IEMs, they lend an air of urgency that I really appreciate to a lot of pieces.

As for distortion, its more evident on crazily bassy tracks like the one in my review, or some bassnectar. The majority of dubstep hold up moderately, but when you really delve into those low registers, I don't think they keep up well.

Oh, how I would love to.

Right now, I'd love to save up for some customs, but the urge of impulse buying would be difficult to resist. I was thinking the FX500s, MTPCs, IE8s or the UM2s next. But any one of those will take awhile, I'm broke ^_^ Maybe I'll sell my guitar or ukulele or something biggrin.gif

Someday, the plan is to get sponsored to do these reviews, paying out of my pocket is not the best way to go at this redface.gif

Hmmm... Terminology like 'clear'; 'balanced'; 'the lower strings do not drag' (what does that even mean?); 'the harmonies they create between each other have a much more tangible resonance with each other'; 'your overall presentation has a lot of driving force' - butit's all all bull**** talk. It's subjective language which can mean whatever you want it to. On the other hand you do criticize the particular IEMs your reviewing for tangible shortcomings as well - like distortion and cheap manufacture. I'd bet that none of those thigns would help you in a blind test. Okay i threw down the glove.
