Brainwavz Jive Noise earphones are absolutely made for those customers who are looking for decent and stable sound quality accompanied by attractive appearance of the product itself. Keep reading our review to discover more about their features.
We are going to compare these with HTC 1 M9, Motorola Moto G, 1st generation of iPad mini and the Samsung Galaxy 7. In our investigation we picked a long list of diverse music songs in terms of their style and quality of recordings.
Costs and availability
Amazon carries out most the company’s deliveries in Great Britain and the United States. This sounds like great news in case you wish to buy these headphones fast and from a reliable retailer. Many Ebay stores offer Brainwavz as well, and they pretty much always have a decent number of these items available stocked up.
You can buy these headphones from Amazon for £19.50 or at the brand’s own shop for $28. If we base comparisons of the company’s models on the cost, this model is placed last in our “Best budget headphones” list, which are a lot less expensive than the same company’s S0 earbuds. This is probably the cheapest it can get without mentioning headphones that you sometimes get with mobile phones as part of the package after the purchase.
Design and quality of the material
In terms of these features, the headphones are simply perfection for $28, since one could never foresee so much goodness from the style and build quality of the earphones. However, you can be pleasingly surprised with this product, just like we are. In all honesty, the physical excellence of materials and the constructed version is brilliant. This model’s key trait is a rigid metal skin, and it can be purchased in purple, black, green, blue, red and white. Without even trying, we tried out the black model. You may agree that there are no expectations for in-ear headphones to appear posh or expensive. However, there is a certain unique sense of style and fashion about this exact model.
Even though the 3-button on-cable remote is made of plastic, it does not look horrendous. The light, slim, curved wire on its own is coated with traditional rubber. When trialling the ‘devaluation due to use’ aspect of these headphones for couple of weeks of vigorous testing , we did not encounter any problems. However, we did not take into account the damage which could be caused to the headphones over a prolonged period of time due to knotting and slow ruination of the wires and the whole structure of the model itself; only short-term effects.
Jive Noise met our expectations of the typical in-ear headphones: these Brainwavz have a long earpiece which is slightly flexible and can enter differently shaped ear tubes and passages and adjust there well in a healthy manner. Immediately after unpacking our purchased item, we have identified an excellent ability of the headphones to block out unnecessary noise and to avoid the extra waste of time when trying to achieve a nice line of shaping in the ear lobes and blockage of noises and irritating sounds when listening to music.
In conclusion, I only have one single comment about this aspect of the headphones: excellent design and build quality for such a comparatively low cost.
Specs and characteristics
This model gets delivered to you with 9mm dynamic drivers, a 160hm impendance grade, the frequency spectrum of 20-20,000 Hz and sensitivity of 98dB at 1mW. The package includes a copper audio wire, a gold plated jack and a rigid-cover shell for travelling with your earphones to minimize risks of damage, to which your possession gets exposed.
It maybe that Brainwavz Jive Noise cannot outcompete other brands and models in terms of the development of their features and up-to-date upgrades. Nevertheless, let us not forget about the great quality of construction, production and the materials making up the headphones. In addition, even if the price was doubled or tripled, the audio quality wouldn’t stand out in a negative way or appear overrated ; it would be of the acceptable level, instead, as in our opinion these headphones are worth so much more than their present price on the market, but we are not complaining. By all means, this model is definitely a wonderful deal. If you wish to acquire earphones that will stay functional for a while, there is no better price than that of Brainwavz Jive Noise.
The 3-button controller on the wire lets you decline/accept calls, use your music player and perform other functions. The headphones are perfect for using with both Android and Apple software, which has been proven in our investigation. In the box which comes with the item itself, you also receive a rigid case and 3 rubber-like silicone ear caps of different dimensions. Additionally, you get a mix of foam tips, a shirt pin and a Velcro wire holder.
