A couple of issues I do have is the related to the build quality. The case is all plastic, and kinda cheap feeling. I realize they probably cut some corners on these for the price point, but the casing is really not great. And the ear pieces they provided aren't great either. All of them are so thin that they make a popping noise when they get bumped around, which is pretty annoying. This problem can be solved by swapping them out for any other earpieces you might have lying around, but it's still a bit disappointing.
Audio quality wise, they are just fine though. Some people might wish there was more bass to them. But that needs to be added by your player. These have a pretty neutral soundscape by default. They are just fine otherwise. Just a shame about the build quality being not so great. I'd still recommend them, just be careful with them if you are taking them with you during any kind of physical activity.
So, after 6 months, why am I writing a review now? I got new foam tips! Comply T-400 Isolation Earphone Tips (Black, 3 Pairs, Medium)
Having used the foam tips that came with the M4's for six months, they were starting to get gummy feeling. Rather than figure out what I could and couldn't clean them with, I decided to check out Comply's website and see what else they had to offer. The included tips are medium size, and seemed just about perfect for me, so I figured I'd get the next model up. The T-400's sound even better, have some coating on them (looks resistant to liquid/earwax), and are pretty affordable. They fit in my ears perfectly, bass is less muddy (that was my only complaint with the M4's before I got these tips), and highs are very crisp. Mids were never an issue with the stock foam tips, and still aren't with these.
If you're thinking about getting these headphones and don't mind spending a little more, add the T-400 tips to your cart. You won't regret it. If you're reading these reviews because your foam tips are getting old, add the T-400 tips to your cart. You won't regret it. If you're reading reviews on headphones you probably aren't going to buy, add the T-400 tips to your cart. You won't regret it (as long as you have headphones that the tips will fit on).
TL;DR These headphones are great, the T-400 tips make them even greater.
Short story short, I went through many forums most notably Headphone-fi forums, and Brainwavz was constantly mentioned for the best bang for your buck. Although there were not many reviews of the the m4 line, their m1-m3 IEMs were praised by many most notably the m3. Thus, I took a leap of faith and decided to buy these at $49 bucks. Anyway, let's get on with the review and enough with my rambling.
Now the sound quality of these IEMs is what surprised me especially since these were just $49. The lows were not deep, but at least it was not boomy and was nice and clear. The mids and highs were just as good and did not feel exaggerated or artificial like the s4s felt to me. The only complaint I have is that these are not the most detailed/'analytical' IEMs. What I mean by this is that some background instrumentals will sound a little faint and will 'roll off'. Despite this minor setback, the sound you get for the money is very good.
Let's face it, one shouldn't expect amazing build quality at $49;however, these IEMs had quite decent build quality and while the wire is thin, it felt strong enough. The look of the m4 is not going to win any style or 'hip' contest, but have a rather generic look. The fact that they included comply foam ear tips (not the top of the line ones) is a nice plus and very much appreciated as these ear tips are decently expensive.
It's hard to give an unbiased review as I have been rather spoiled and owned good sound equipment. Putting this fact aside, I have to say I am very surprised by the Brainwavz m4. Not to be mean or anything, but the name Brainwavz had me uneasy whether or not these would be a great buy. Fortunately I was proven wrong and was surprised by its 'clarity and fun' sound characteristics. It's not incredibly detailed, but at the same time as others have said I don't feel I miss too much of the song. Overall, for those that want a decent upgrade from their stock Apple earbuds and god forbid the cheap terrible Skullcandy earbuds (I don't understand why people constantly keep buying these...), the Brainwavz m4 is the IEM just for you. If you can get it at $28, which is what one reviewer claims, then more power to you. However at just $49, it is priced just right for the sound quality you get.
