The Pros -
Accessories - Included with the earbuds are three different sized sets of normal rubber buds and a case, which is pretty standard amongst earbuds these days. But the M1s also include a set of double flanged buds, a set of foam buds, and a wire clip.
The Mehs -
Sound quality - These replaced a set of Thinksound TS01s which replaced a set of Sennheiser CX500s. These are better than the TS01s, because I found the TS01s fairly bass heavy. The M1s toned it down a bit but bass is still present. The main problem I have is that in some cases, the M1s can have almost a shrill sound, which has faded after they broke in a bit, but it still comes through on certain songs. So, I find them better than the TS01s, but I still prefer the older Sennheiser CX500s that I broke a while back.
The Cons -
The cable - The one thing I truly hate with a passion about these earbuds. While the "tangle free" part may be true (it takes about 5-10 seconds to straighten out when pulled from my pocket vs 10-15 with other earbuds) the best way to describe it is having memory. If there is any slack whatsoever, it doesn't just hang loose like a normal cable. It tries to coil back around on itself, tangling itself that way, or coiling up on the screen of whatever I'm trying to use.
But then these Brainwavz come in with the right ear's casing barely holding together, which I easily fixed with some thinly sliced tape - minor inconvenience imo. After just a couple months of light desk use, the left channel goes out. I can excuse poor build quality, but when that's coupled with a lifetime shorter than food in the pantry, that's a deal-breaker.
Then again, poor build quality is usually tied to durability, so I guess this all makes sense. You get what you pay for with this product - sounds not worth it if you can't even hear the dang thing a couple months outside of brand new.
Decent sound for the price.
Nice little case
Comes with different sized rubber replaceable ear bud tips. And one set of memory foam tips.
Cord is plastic coated and very springy. It will never straighten out and gets twisted up all the time.
The cord is noisy when moving around. Don't use these while running, the cord will make a lot of noise in the ear buds.
After about 6 months they're falling apart on me. I'm getting shocked in my ear when I stand up with the earbuds plugged into my laptop.
Just today the right earbud opened up and I quickly snapped it back together, but something must have came loose on the inside because I'm getting no sound in the right ear now.
Switching back and forth from the earpods vs. the Brainwavz M1 - the M1 seems to have more clarity when there's multiple instruments / vocals going on at the same time. It has weaker bass than the earpods; however, I was expecting this from reading reviews. The M1's provide a "balanced" sound, and I enjoy it very much. The bass is more punchy - not as heavy as the earpods. The treble is very good! When I switch back to the earpods, I don't miss the M1's, but maybe because I do not have much appreciation for the differences. What I do like is the isolation the M1's provide which is far better than the earpods. However, I will switch to the earpods when I need more awareness of my surroundings (like walking in public or across the street). The M1 has some noise produced from the cable ("microphonics") when I shift around wearing the M1's that I don't get with the earpods. I'll need to figure out how to wear them to reduce the noise to a minimum. Build quality is great for my use. I did not want something that looked expensive or flashy and the M1's fit the bill. They feel solid even though they're plastic. The cord seemed thin, but in comparison to the Apple earpods is about the same size. Great value for a fair price of $40.
