The Brainwavz B100 is an incredibly accurate internal headset for its price. For an aspiring audiophile who wants to try balanced armature IEMs (as opposed to the normal dynamics above), the B100 could be the ideal starting point. The signature sound was quite neutral and dealt with most of the genres that we threw at him. If you are looking for great headphones with sound, you can’t go wrong with the Brainwavz B100.

BRAINWAVZ B100 DETAILED REVIEW

In the ever-expanding mid-range EMI market, players are trying to distinguish themselves by their appearance, outstanding performance or even in one way or another by the controller technology used. Take the matter of the Branwavz B100: instead of using dynamic controllers, it relies on balanced anchor transducers to produce the audio. So far, the balanced anchors on the ears have a high price, although things are changing quickly. With a price of less than 5K, the Brainwavz B100 is perhaps the lowest balanced armature EMI on the market today.

BUILD AND DESIGN

The Brainwavz B100 is an honest EMI. It is designed to offer excellent sound and not much else, and it does not pretend to be. It has a purely functional design: a simple Y-cable and connectors that have a memory cable at the end that serves as an additional support that goes around the ear. In fact, the headphones are frankly simple, to be honest. Although the B100 will certainly not win any design awards, it makes up for what it lacks in appearance in the audio chops.

FEATURES AND PERFORMANCE

At the beginning, when I tried it, the first song that went through the FiiO X5 3rd Generation was recorded by Adele. Remember that this is not one of our standard test routes. When I listened for the first time, I felt that the accuracy of the sound was a little bad, especially in the last parts of the song. As the density of the orchestration and the chorus increased, it was as if the main songs were deleted. I began to wonder: “Wasn’t the crossover set correctly?”But wait, it’s a single anchor helmet,” would it even have a crossover?”I found myself thinking out loud. To verify this, I played the same games on the UE900 and it turns out that it is very mixed by design. Phew.

When we moved on to our test tracks, it became clear that the B100 was probably one of the most accurate IEMs we had tested in Digit’s test laboratories. Chris Rea’s on-demand voice was more natural than any other headset in this price range. In addition, our passage on the live track Shine on you crazy Diamond by ablum pulse sounded really good. The only track where the headphones failed a little was Mindstreet from the Maktub album. The bass sounds didn’t have that punch. Ahh well, you can’t have it all, can you? But overall, the B100 has awesome performance at this price. The signature sound was quite neutral and dealt with most of the genres that we threw at him. It seems to position itself as a “serious” headset and even drops the microphone in line. At 50 ohms, the nominal impedance is at the top, but the headphones, which are quite sensitive, should not be difficult to handle even for a phone. In this matter, a microphone would have been a welcome addition. That said, it’s only a minor annoyance. If you are looking for great headphones with sound, you can’t go wrong with the Brainwavz B100.
