Give me a neutral sounding IEM and I'll EQ it to death. I just wish I had a better mobile source now.
These are actually supposed to be analytical IEMs, which is hard to believe with a name with Brainwavz. At least it might stop my friends from laughing at me carrying my M50s wherever I go

Hopefully the dual armature's dedicated tweeter will give me highs that don't sound like they're coming from a tin can. (Looking at you meeelectronic generic IEMs )

What really convinced me i wanted these was the speed. I cant listen to metal or fast electronic with my AD700s, they just are far too slow. I don't mind the downplaying of bass registers, but if it makes an intense piece sound relaxed, thats unforgivable.

Only got a pair of Sennheiser HD215's which go through a Sony stereo amp (TA-FE300R) to my Asus Xonar DG. Sure works for me though.

DETECTIVE TIME

Just found the Fischer DBA-02s, which are at the same price point, and look very similar to the Brainwavz B2. (Same cable, same housing, different color, different tip) I am thinking the B2 is essentially a DBA-02



Thoughts?

Also, the DBA-02s scored a 9.2 in sound and 9.6 in value (at $160) on the head-fi multi iem review, so i am excited that i could pick these up at $130, on sale

They're not. Current Brainwavz are OEM'ed by ViSang in China.

*facepalm*
Reading about that right now. I swear, i found two places that said Brainwavz are fischers. Rereading the multi iem comparison... yeah, ViSang.

I'll go change my post so i seem less stupid.
On the other hand, those B2s do look mightlily alike to the Fischer DBA-02s, do they not?

Yeah, they do look a lot like the DBA-02s and they supposedly sound a LOT alike too. The DBA-02s are suppose to have some sort of channel imbalance (maybe a bad batch) but a lot of people (or the posts that I've read on Head-Fi) seem to prefer the B2s over the DBA-02s

Anyways, I'm really enjoying my Westone UM3Xs. I upgraded from a pair of TF10s and the UM3Xs definitely sound a level above the TF10s! I might buy a pair of used TF10s and reshell them in the future though since I also really liked their sound

My pair arrives tomorrow

Oh, if only they weren't called Brainwavz (with a Z no less ). I mean, it makes it sound cheap -_-

But really, i picked these up for $130 as opposed to $160, so i could care less what they're called, as long as they sound great, which i don't doubt they will. The more reviews i read of them (there really aren't many) the more excited I get. They seem to be everything I like in my sound reproduction, if not slightly lacking in bass. I think I'll put off my M50 review to do these instead, there are already enough M50 reviews floating around the web. And it'll give me more time to test out my STX <3

EDIT: Your westones make me jealous -_-
