This week I’ve been testing out the new Brainwavz S1 Earphones. The earphones are classified as in ear monitors (IEM) and are designed to be worn with the audio cables over and down the back of the ears instead of hanging straight down in front of the ear lobe, which has the benefit of offering more support to keep the earphones in place!
The Brainwavz earphones are made from aluminium which ensures their durability also making them very light.
The earpieces are accompanied by 6 pairs of silicone tips, 1 pair of Bi and 1 pair Tri-flange tips and a hard carry case to protect your earphones.
One excellent feature is that the cable is flat, which has meant that so far I haven’t ended up in a tangled mess!
The cable port that inserts into your device is flexible which means that it doesn’t resist any movement when you are active. The cable is long enough not to cause you too many limitations in free movement (this is something that I usually find frustrating about my typical brand of earphones).
The quality of sound is really quite good. With earbud earphones, the external sound that interferes with your listening really can cause a nuisance and isn’t well blocked out. However, this isn’t the case with the Brainwaves S1; the outside world did not intrude upon my listening. Not even the holler to make the coffees from my adoring wife managed to penetrate my focused listening.
