The Brainwavz S0 (Brainwavz/Amazon (£34.50) has a nice and stylish black painted aluminium bullet-like body. Despite being very light, the body of this IEM feels durable and wouldn’t break unless you force it. It also has a nice strong red strain relief on the body of the IEM and Y Splitter that could protect the cables attached to the IEM from breaking. Then, it also has a standard straight 3.5 mm gold plated jack too.

Overall, the aesthetics part of this IEM was nicely done and should be durable enough especially when properly used.

What do you get in the Brainwavz S0  package is jam-packed for the price which includes a very much improved hard carrying case with compartments, 9 sets of ear tips (1 Comply, 1 Bi-Flange, 1 Tri-Flange, 3 Standard SML, 3 Translucent Red), shirt clip, Brainwavz velcro cable tie and a silica gel.

Thanks to its quite small body that can be angled freely to your ear. Just choose the right tips for your ears then it sits in your ear very comfortably. When it comes to blocking the outside noise, this probably is on the average side.

The case included in the package looks very good and durable and it has a nice Brainwavz Velcro strap to keep your IEM organized. The other thing I loved in its package is the inclusion of a silica gel in order to keep your IEM dry.

Sound

It was fairly balanced and in a slightly dark presentation. I’m impressed with its easy to love overall sound and it has a good wide soundstage.

This part of the sound is definitely one of the stronger points of this in-ear monitor. It has that huge quantity of bass that most the public would love. The sounds from the Brainwavz S0 sounds more complete especially on the sub bass part and go deeper. The S0 also has that sweet bass decay on slow fading bass on some acoustic tracks. It doesn’t overwhelm the mids that much even if listening to bass heavy songs.

Treble

While the treble response of this in-ear monitor is just fine and a tad forward sounding. It’s not its strongest point though.

Mids

The way the Brainwavz S0 sound was able to impress me, with a very good all-rounder for an entry level IEM. The mids is its strongest point, the bass came in a close second and the treble part is it’s not so refined part. It was able to do very well on acoustic tracks, live recordings, general rock, EDM and vocals.

Brainwavz did a great job with the impressive S0 for a budget in-ear monitor. The Brainwavz has an almost complete sound and quite balanced sound that could bring a big smile to any faces of those who love good music. Overall, I love this great strategy by Brainwavz to bring an affordable in-ear monitor that sounds GREAT to educate more and more people on how decent music should sound like.
