Right off the bat, I will say buying the Brainwavz M3, you are basically going for a quality studio earphones. The sound is loud and just plain brilliant, at no levels did I experienced any breaking of sound or stuttering, the clarity is beyond perfect and nothing like what you expect from an earphone, but nothing in this word is perfect, similar is the case of the Brainwavz M3.
Brainwavz has focused on producing a pair of perfect studio earphones where they have done a brilliant job. The Brainwavz M3 has exceptional balance across the lows, mids, and highs. Which provide spot on acoustical reproduction, crisp and clear vocals. But, and a very significant but is that these earphones lack in the Raw bass department. If there is a real drop or base in the song that you are enjoying, you will be impressed throughout the song but the lack of bass just make you feel robbed of the ability or the quality of a song.
Note, I am absolutely not saying this is the earphone’s fault but they work so flawlessly throughout the song handling lows, mids, and highs like a glove. Expectation rises to a new level when you are listening through the Brainwavz M3, and the expectation should be high when you are paying a premium price for a set of premium earphones.
But never have I ever heard any studio headphone/earphones that really do justice to the bass of any soundtrack. If you focus on bass characteristics of any sound you really have to compromise on the sound front. If they would have focused on the bass too much the resultant would be average sounding earphones. All in all the bass is well – weighted and full – bodied, and remains under control and never takes over other features.
The build quality is excellent and the shape is helpful in making the earphone to be placed just right in your ear canal. Nor is it loosely swinging, nor is it hurting the ears, long usage is comfortable overall. You get 3 regular pairs of silicone ear tips. A pair of Bi – Flange silicone ear tips (irritating after a while) and also you get 1 pair of Comply Foam tips. These foam tips are the best attachment for your earphones, which makes the experience just satisfying.
Earphones are powered by dynamic 10.7 mm drivers, which have impedance rated at 20 ohms. Frequency ranges from 20Hz – 20kHz. The sensitivity is 115dB at 1mW, with the rated input power of 10mW. All of these technical features add to give great sound output. The sound is flat, in a good way as no one features tries to overshadow others. Everything works like a well-synchronized system.
- Great lows, mids, and highs
- Loud sound with no breaking
- Anti – tangle cable
- Fantastic noise cancellation
- Bass is on the lower side of my liking
- No hands-free feature
- Build quality and finishing could have been a tad better

But if you love listening to music and want the perfect earphones these are for you.
