Brainwavz S0 Earphones with Clearwavz Mic / Remote
By Lou Wallace
I received the Brainwavz S0 earphones a few months ago and have had time to use them on both a iPhone and Android phone (Galaxy S8+), as well as on a Samsung tablet and a Dell desktop PC.
Overall the experience has been quite positive. Unlike other earbuds I have used these seem to be well constructed and very durable. No broken wires, no earbud tips falling off, and no issues at all after months of use.
While they were marketed primarily for iOS products, they work just as well on Android and PCs. The price on the Brainwavz site is $49.95, but on Amazon they are available for $34.99.
The audio quality is first rate. I didn’t have any issues with the bass, midrange or trebles. I used them with Amazon Music, listening to everything from rock to blues to classical.
They come with a wide variety of earbud tips, including a set of Comply T-400 tips. There is also a shirt clip included. And it all comes in a very nice storage package with a zipper to open and close.
On the PC they were used primarily for gaming and again there everything was fine. I especially liked the Comply T-400 foam tips included while playing games as it made for a more immersive experience due to the external noise being blocked.
For phone calls on the iPhone they worked perfectly, and the Clearwavz remote was very useful to accept and end calls. However I did have some issues with it on the Galaxy S8+, as they end call didn’t work properly. It might just be this particular set, or could be an issue with the Brainwavz S0. For just listening to audio the volume controls worked fine.
Overall, I would rate these as a 9 out of 10 with a Strong Buy Recommendation, especially considering the low price available on Amazon.
