Brainwavz Jive Earphones Review


The Brainwavz Jive is an affordable set of earbuds that sounds more expensive than it is. With a comfortable, sleek and secure design, these earbuds provide booming yet defined sound that doesn't lose its luster, even in chaotic situations.

Clear, booming sound ; Secure ear inserts ; Convenient inline remote ; Inexpensive

Highs and midranges can get muddy

The $25 Brainwavz Jive are affordable headphones that sacrifice nothing, and have good sound, a comfortable design and an easy-to-use inline remote.

Brainwavz Jive Noise review


The Brainwavz Jive Noise are budget earphones that offer solid audio quality, and excellent design. Find out more about these good cheap headphones in our Brainwavz Jive Noise review.

These are not the headphones to beat all others. But the Brainwavz Jive Noise are a great bargain. Build quality is good, and audio quality would not look out of place at twice the price or more. For a general earphone that should last, you can't do...

Brainwavz Jive Review


Decent build Good fit, comfort and isolation Clean, crisp sound Excellent in-line remote and microphone

Lacking in bass A bit shrill at the top-end

At Rs. 1,899, the Brainwavz Jive is a great purchase. It's built well, comfortable, comes with lots of useful add-ons and accessories, and offers a decent sonic signature. With a focus on clarity and crispness, the Jive is good for all kinds of music....

Brainwavz Jive - Redefining the Budget Bracket


Introduction My dad had a big-@$$ hifi stack as tall as the television, so naturally I was born with picky ears. But being raised in a shanty town (a lie), with only basic electricity and water (another lie), my first taste of earbuds and IEMs came...

Outstanding value, great bass layering, clear and airy mids, detailed yet fun, comfortable fit, excellent soundstage and imaging for the price.

Build and cable quality, slight bass bleed, elevated upper mids/lower treble can be sibilant.

A Consumer-Friendly Sound in a (hopefully) Durable Package


First off, thanks to Pandora from Brainwavz for reaching out and offering the opportunity to look at the "Jive". Secondly, I noticed a trend that I'm giving 4 stars to everything I've reviewed so far haha. Am I too forgiving or too harsh? I don't even...

Durable*, Bassy, 45 degree angle plug, Beefy and Light Y-splitter, 3-Button Remote for IOS and Android, Signature Carrying Case

Bassy, A little harsh sounding in the upper mids, Lack of strain relief between cable and housing, "Blue" seems more like Purple
