Brainwavz Delta Headphones Review

Brainwavz Delta Headphones Review: The Brainwavz Delta uses the 8mm dynamic drivers, and it has a rated impedance of 16Ohms. The frequency response ranges from 20-20,000Hz and the sensitivity measures in at the 100dB. It has a Y-shaped cable of 1.3m with a slider at the top to help in preventing the tangling. It comes with microphone and three-button in-line remote, that is great news for those users who need a headset that will work with the smartphones. Although we were not too happy with the microphone but the buttons worked as they should on an iPhone 5s. Some people we called and they complained that our voice was too low. We had to hold the dangling remote close to our mouth to achieve the normal volume levels.Brainwavz Delta Review

The box includes the three sets of the silicone tips i.e. one pair of Comply foam tips, a Velcro cable tie, a shirt clips and a hard case that will help you to store the Brainwavz Delta when you are travelling. The Delta has a metal casing that will lend it a premium feel and the same is angular 3.5mm plug like the Omega.

The Delta is very light, that it makes it easy to wear for the long hours. The 3.5mm plug did not always fit securely in our test audio gear that is leading to some of the statics noise when it moved around.Brainwavz Delta Headphones

PERFORMANCE

We used the two focus tracks to test Brainwavz Delta i.e. Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne and Riders on the Storm by The Doors. The test audio sources were our Fiio X1 i.e. the high resolution audio player, a Windows laptop and iPhone 5s laptop.

Riders on the Storm is a track that sounds best on the headphones with the neutral tone due to the wide array of the sounds in track. Like the Brainwavz Delta, Omega tends to surface the sub-bass in this track. This is the kind of the song where you would want the sub-bass to be a bit downplayed. So if you can adjust with the bass bias then the sound quality is not all that bad.

Now coming on the Crazy Train, it was a far less complicated track and we chose this because it begins with the music that is going back and then forth between the right and left channels. In this track, the bass guitar was almost totally overshadowed all the other sounds.

We were quite impressed with the way Delta handles highs and mids. The slight treble spike is also excellent.Brainwavz Delta Headphones Review

VERDICT

With a pair of the low-cost in-ear headphones the Brainwavz has yet again managed to deliver the excellent value for money. The Brainwavz Delta sounds better than the Omega while retaining the similar sound signature. The Delta also has a better soundstaging and instrument separation too. So, if you do not like the headphones that are tend to surface lows over the other sounds then you might want to try a neutral pair like Evidson Audio Sport W6. Overall, we think that most people will be happy with the Brainwavz Delta because it performs well with the music across the genres.
