Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"Again, because it was my fault I'd caught the cable, I considered my feedback the end of the matter."
_
"I caught the cable walking past something and that 1 tug broke the flimsy wires in the connector."
_
"I relayed the info above, again acknowledged that I'd caught the cable on something which was my fault, and suggested they improve the strain relief at the plug and or change to a straight plug."

"I HATE the cord."

"The cord is round (the S1 model has a nifty flat, no-tangle cord that I *love*), but a little thicker than some of my cheaper headphones, which minimizes tangling."
_
"Cycling was good for me, jogging was fine my only problem was the cord while jogging."

"And, as with all Brainwavz earphones, the buds are very comfortable and come with enough sets of earpads to fit any ear."

Price

Price:

_
"Sure they are a lot of better headphones, which cost a lot more money, but for <$30 these are hard to beat."

"Good, not amazing, but the best out there for the money."
_
"They are much better than cheap ear buds, but they are not the best IEMs out there."

"The sound of the R1 earbuds far exceeded my expectations for the price...VERY IMPRESSED! "

_
"I like these a lot, people complain about how its all plastic and what not but for this price i'm not surprised which frankly I don't care because I paid 33 dollars for these and they do sound great for their price and i believe that you get more then what the price is."
_
"but for 33 dollars i can not complain because I believe that these sound great for the price."

Quality

Quality:
"The build quality is acceptable, but not high-quality."
_
"These R1 earphones are no exception, with very good build quality and quite exceptionally good sound for the price."
_
"If you go from these to, say, a much more expensive pair of in-ear phones billed as audiophile quality, you may not be able to tell the difference."
_
"The build quality is okay, it's plastic and doesn't feel extremely well put together, but I'm hoping i'm wrong on this assumption because the sound quality is so fantastic."
_
"The actual problem is horrible build quality which is simply sub par."
_
"The actual problem is horrible build quality which is simply subpar."

_
"Though while just walking around with the headphones plugged in and my phone in my pocket, the sound quality kept going from good to bad to no sound at all."
_
"The sound quality for these is good for their price but I don't think I would be willing to pay more for them."

Sound

Sound:
"Some reviews say that it sound muddy on the highs and i have to admit it does a perfect example of this is when I was listening to stairway to heaven by led zeppelin in the long version when the drums come in after the guitar and flute the drums do not sound natural at all and what i mean is that the thump sounds good but the cymbals sound weird they don't sound natural."
_
"They sound horrible to anyone who has any concept of what a nice, neutral sound is like."
_
"The earphones didnt disappoint not only is build excellent so is the sound, you can tell they are dual drive, very good defined bass with a nice edge to the treble from the tweeter, balanced perfectly."
_
"Thought I would try a bit of Led Zeppelin as I find most earphones miss a lot of the guitar sounds from the music and only pick the bass as the main theme, although not perfect they are some of the best earphones I have heard playing Stairway to Heaven, they picked up the plucking of the strings and came to life when the drums kicked in, very impressed, so much so I played the same track three times, I used a pair of Sonys that cost near to eighty pounds and they couldnt cope Led Zeppelin, the bass was dull and missed loads of the high end sound, the Brainwavz R1 wiped the floor with them for soundIve heard a few earphones over the years, Ive worked in the audio and Vision sector for the last 30 years, retail and service, Ive sold earphones that have cost 99p (they were never any good) and earphones at a couple of hundred pounds, some have blown my socks off others have left me feeling that Im glad I didnt pay that for them."
_
"Great sound and quality!"
_
"The sound of the R1 earbuds far exceeded my expectations for the price...VERY IMPRESSED! "
_
"Great sound - but delicate."
_
"Out of the box the sound is amazing."
_
"This is my opinion:The sound with these earbuds has good bass and clear highs."
