Cable

Cable:
"I will update the review if I have any problems with the cables separating."
_
"And even though it looks like it is designed to bend to alleviate stress what ends up invariably happening is the connection of the flat cable to the plug ends up being damaged resulting in sound not going to one or both of the earpieces."
_
"* Worried about the longevity of the cables."
_
"While a little heavier than a traditional round cord, the trade-off is more than worth it time saved and frustration avoided."
_
"The cord is flat and doesn't tangle easy which I love for outside activity."
_
"they have a great quality feel, and the cord being thick and flat doesn't tangle easily at all."
_
"The cord is long enough to be comfortable, but not too long to get cumbersome and get in the way!"
_
"They are made extremely well with a flat cord to not get tangled as you use these."
_
"Package contents:1 x S5 Headphones1 x Comply foam T-400 medium series tip6 x Silicone tips1 x Bi-Flage tip1 x Tri-Flange tip1 x 6.3mm audio adapter1 x Earphone carrying case1 x Instruction manualHere what I like so far:+Well designed and well made with high durability metal housing+Bluetooth compatible with built in Microphone so you can hand free with simple connect and talk+Unique tangle free flat cable+Soundquality is Crystal clear and clean with bass+Nice quality accessory carry case included is a big plus, so I have no longer to worry lost some accessories or charge cable+Versatile, with Bluetooth technology, we can enjoy music wireless with long range+Set up is super simple with ease+Unique feature: with noise cancellationOverall, I was definitely more than pleased about the overall quality of these Brainwavz S5 headphones."
_
"Other differences - the cable for these S5 earphones incorporates a larger 'splitter' where the flat cable is split into the left and right separate cables, which may provide a greater degree of protection and stress relief for the cables if treated roughly."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"I'm just really impressed with these headphones - they are super comfortable, don't fall out and have terrific sound and quite a few nice accessories."
_
"The major downside is that I never really feel 100% comfortable when wearing them, regardless of what tips I'm using."
_
"The S5 kit includes a variety of earphone tips, and I can't imagine anyone not being able to find a pair of comfortable tips."
_
"I was overall very satisfied by the fit, build, and acoustics of the headphones. Final ThoughtsFor the quality and comfort, these headphones are hard to beat, especially for under the $100 range."
_
"Comfort is pretty good, I have no complaints with the comfort of the S5, the noise isolation is a bit of a different story."
_
"For me, the most comfortable and best sounding set were the memory foam ones."
_
"If you're wondering why the price is so high on these little bad boys, this is why; 1. the design is sleek, beautiful and comfortable., 2.the output of sound is clear, loud, and of the best quality (think Bose), 3.they come with all the bells and whistles like a hard carrying case and enough choices in ear cushions to make your head spin, 4.the flat cord is not only cool looking, it's connected with hinges that will withstand years of abuse., 5. the materials used are top of line, all metal housings and velvet soft plastics... you won't get any knotted cords or shredding plastic casings here."
_
"As for comfort, I would say that these are fairly nice because they give a nice selection of different-sized earbuds for you to put in and take out."

Connector

Connector:
"My only complaint is that the jack is straight."
_
"Flat wires, especially those with a thick jacket such as these, survive that abuse with zero problems."
_
"I like that Brainwavz decided to keep the conventional straight connector, as their other connectors are usually at a 125 angle and easily damaged."
_
"Also a nice gold plated audio jack adapter."
_
"The box includes classic Brainwavz accessories, a nice rectangular carrying case, a huge assortment of tips, and a beautifully made 3.5mm to 1 4 inch jack adapter."
_
"They still plug into my phone jack just fine and I get the same clear sound out of both earbuds."
_
"The cable itself is oxygen-free copper which gives very good reproduction and the jack is gold-plated."
_
"They come very well packaged and you also get a neat, robust carrying case, a jack adaptor and excellent variety of tips, including a set of Comply foam tips, so that you may be sure the ear-buds will fit comfortably in your ears."

Fit

Fit:
"I have a small inner ear and it's hard to get a good fit with any in-ear headphones, most of the time they end up falling out."
_
"I typically do not care for in-ear headphones because they are often so hard to get a good fit, however I feel with the included variety ear adapters, most users will find the perfect fit I found."
_
"And if the tips aren't inserted properly, the bass sounds are very weak, so it's important to use the tips that fit your ears the best."
_
"The design is great and tilted a bit for the best ear fit."
_
"The earbuds fit great, and if not there are several pair of replacement pads provided so you can pick the earbud size that is perfect for you!"

Listening

Listening:
"It's hard to stop listening."
_
"Cons:* The flexible rubber buds that are on by default may cause discomfort the first time listening to them."

"Thankfully, the S5s doesnt suffer from this problem, you wont find yourself squinting when listening them as it makes their voices rather tolerable."
_
"I blame the people listening to horrible music in their cars driving around with the stereo cranked with all their windows open with some obnoxious subwoofer pumping."
_
"I put them on a 2+ watt source at this impedance and while it was hard to get the listening level down, they certainly didn't melt or smoke or catch fire or breakdown (despite their 20 mW rated input power; I ignore those, as most audiophile folk do anyways, and just throw them on high powered sources and see what happens in our ears)."
_
"The bass quality is excellent when listening to music and watching videos."
_
"Being a love of bass, this has the right amount, particular listening to modern pop and urban music where lows are exaggerated."
_
"Well designed with no glaring flaws, this is a perfect, portable set for any number of music listening scenarios."
_
"Still, it was an overall pleasant listening experience."
_
"Great for listening to podcasts to high quality audio files."

_
"They still plug into my phone jack just fine and I get the same clear sound out of both earbuds."

Range

Range:
"With a frequency range of 18Hz~24kHz, and 110 dB at 1mW, the S5s are not quite as good as the M2s, but they blow the competition out of the water and that includes LGs, and Klipsch, and anything that came from Apple."

Response

Response:
"Bass response is lacking but it's hard to beat the value."
_
"The sound quality is great and the response is reasonably flat."
_
"I also have the Xiaomi Gold, a good IE for the price, but the C curve response is just too much for me (too polite mid-range, too much bass and elevated treble)."
_
"I started this with a one star rating, but bumped it up to 2 stars because they really do appear to be well made - if they just had something anywhere near the bass response of my others I'd be happy."
_
"I have tested a lot of earphones and headphones and these are, for my ears anyway, the best in-ear phones I have ever tried, with a brilliant, accurate sound and quite remarkable bass response."
_
"While the dual flange offers me a little better frequency response, due to a looser seal, I prefer the ease of proper fit with the single flange tips; I particularly find the gray singles to provide the best balance of sound over the black singles."

"They feel like they are built well, and I love how you get all the different ear sizes to find the best fit."
_
"They include a selection of extra tips of different sizes and styles, so finding one that fits best should not be a problem."
_
"This is the second pair of Brainwavz earphones that I've tried, and to be honest they both sound great (the first was these Brainwavz S0 Earphones, which sell for about half the price of these S5's).It continues to amaze me that such full and accurate sound can be reproduced by such small devices."

_
"Im sure theres room to offer a bit more aesthetic value here, while not sacrificing much in the way of durability."

"While Brainwavz continues to offer excellent value for the purchasers dollar, in future $100+ models Id like to see Brainwavz put some focus towards a more premium aesthetic in both material and design with cabling, plus perhaps a signature geared a little more laid back and smooth but without losing clarity and detail, while being more on the neutral side of presentations."

Vocal

Vocal:
"Vocals came in nice and clear with above average detail but instruments sounded a tad distant."
_
"The vocals are crystal clear and when I got the whole symphony going I could close my eyes and feel like I was in the concert hall."
_
"Vocals are clear and strong."
_
"WHAT I LIKE:- Amazingly clear sound with sizzling treble and crystal clear vocals- The flat cord resists tangling- They come with a great variety of eargels so you'll get a great fit- They are aesthetically pleasing- The bass response let me very clearly hear bass chords, yet these earbuds aren't boomy- They come with a protective, zippered case that also holds the extra eargels- The audio cord fits into my iPhone with me having to remove my iPhone's protective caseCONCLUSION: If you are wondering whether spending $100 on a pair of earbuds is worth the high cost when you can get other earbuds that are much, much less expensive, all I can tell you is Amazon has a great returns policy -- try these out and see for yourself!"
_
"The sound of the music was very balanced, crisp, and clear with really good smooth sounding bass with a good punch, distinctive instrumentation and clear understandable vocals with nothing sounding muddled as some in ear headphones tend to do."
