Recently Brianwavz announced their Brainwavz Alpha earphones in India with which the company claims it'll be sufficient to soothe the needs of any audiophile. An audiophile who is mainly looking for a decent budget friendly pair of Earphones. First of all, if you're new to the Brianwavz name, don't let the word Alpha trigger a thought in your mind that these Earphones are their first product. As I've been using these earphones for almost a week, and I have a couple of interesting things to point down. So here's my in-depth Brainwavz Alpha Earphones Review.
Brainwavz Alpha Review: Thin Profile, Good Output.Brainwavz Alpha Specifications:
- It has 8mm Dynamic Drivers having a 20ohms Rated Impedance.
- Frequency Response lies between 15Hz & 28kHz. Whereas the Sensitivity ranges from 110dB at one mW.
- It has a Rated input power of 10 mW.
- The Cable is 1.3m long, consisted of a Y-cord extension and made of copper. While it has a 3.5 mm gold plated audio jack having a 45° angle.
Design & Build:
The first thing you would notice as soon as you pick them up is that how thin they are. The cable up until the Y-Cord seems sturdy, But after that extension of Y-cord, it felt very fragile to me. But the main unit is a woven mesh of plastic and rubber built. However, if you have a look over my Brainwavz M1 Earphones review, It seems as if they removed the plain silver rings and incorporated a rubber joint on end to help strengthen the grip. So is Brainwavz Alpha, an upgraded version of Brainwavz M1, offered at an affordable price? Interesting. The overall general appeal of the Alpha Earphones is pretty comfy. The wire cable is long enough, but there's no in-line microphone, and there's an ugly 3.5mm audio jack with 45° hook. Seriously, Who uses that now? The only reason to hate it, Is because due to the aesthetics. Try listening to music with these earphones on, then place your smartphone in your pocket, As that action will speak for itself.

Box Contents and Warranty Info:
So here's where the typical Brianwavz unboxing experience differs as the Brianwavz Alpha Earphones do not come with a hard shell box, But to overcome that the company has provided a compact and a similar but less sturdy box which won't tear easily, since it has been made with hard plastic. So opening that box you get the Alpha Earphones itself, three sets of silicone ear tips, 1 set or comply ear tips S-400, a Velcro tie, a shirt clip, and a 12 Months of warranty card along with an instruction documentation.
Brainwavz Alpha Review: Final Verdict.
It wouldn't be wrong to say that the company has progressed a lot, While I'm saying this as I've used a couple of earphones from Brainwavz. While taking the Brainwavz Alpha in mind, it won't be an exception to that thought. It is a decent pair of earphone available at Rs.1799, As what the company claims(Great Bass, Crisp Output) is observed seemingly in an upward direction. However, these earphones would've been great, if it had an in-line mic and the infamous hardshell case, in my opinion. But what could you ask more for Rs.1799? The Brianwavz Alpha is available both on Amazon and Flipkart. Links to buy are as follows:
- Satisfactory Bass Output.
- Comfortable Design.
- No Inline Microphone.
- Fewer Eartips compared to usual Brianwavz Earphones, Even though I hardly use more than one.
