Beyerdynamic BYRON In Ear Mic Headphones £39 @ Richer Sounds

7
Found 23rd Feb
I've been looking for these for a while and Richer Sounds have got them for £39. There are some used ones cheaper on Amazon Marketplace but I'd rather get it brand new.

The next best price is £43.95 from Amazon, not a major saving but still better than nothing and general price is £49.99.

I also like that it's tailored for Android.

Any ideas how these compare to Brainwavz B100 or B150?
Nice earphones, with good sound, and the mic works well...unfortunately I had the usual problems with earphones in that the left speaker stopped working after about 6mths use. Luckily for me I got them from Amazon so they replaced them straight away, no questions asked. Think they cost me just under £39 at the time.

Update 23rd Feb: Unbelievable, the left speaker has now gone on my 2nd set (which I got in Oct). 3rd set on its way from Amazon now!

I couldn't tell you tbh.

I've had my eyes on the Beyerdynamic Byrons for a while, and i've held off because my Soundmagic E10s have worked fine. I've only gone in for these now because the the e10s are failing me a little, and the hotukdeals alert hasn't really piped up with a deal for the Byrons, so I went out and looked myself.

There's a review for each of them, but as they're all different sites, i'm not sure whether that's much help or not...

I guess this deal is only good for someone who knows what they want rather than someone who wants a pair of earphones but isn't sure which one to go for.

Thanks a lot for your reply. I already have the B100 earphoines so i wasn't sure if this would be a upgrade, downgrade or side step, thus the question.

Have a nice day.

Are the B100s good?

Tbh I hadn't heard of them until you mentioned them.

In my opinion, B100 are great sounding IEMs. As to be expected from well tuned balanced armature driver. Their bass is not as pronounced as in dynamic drivers earphones i.e. Soundamgic E10s. It is well defined and goes low, but it doesn't have the thump of the dynamic driver. If I wear to compare the base it is similar to having a boombox (dynamic earphones) where every bass note is the same compared to HiFi bookshelf speaker, an armature driver. Don't get me wrong, there are good dynamic drivers which are fun to listen to but I just prefer quality over quantity, especially when comparing to E10s.

Overall their sound is well balanced, except a slight peak in upper mid-range which gives vocals the radio vibe sound and slight dip in the high end. This doesn't mean they lack the treble but it sounds little dull. Yet easy fix with eq in the high end of +2db gives them more excitement. Additionally, they are very light which helps with the soundstage as after a while you don't notice them in your ear. Also, the soundstage is wide for an earphone, in my opinion significantly better than higher priced iem i.e. Sennheiser momentum. Considering they can be purchased for the ridicules price of 29 pounds-ish including shipping from Brainwavz website(offer ends 25 Feb). This is a bargain. I paid 50 for mine last Jan 2017 and I still think they well worth the price paid.

To be honest, at first, I didn't like the low-end response, however using comply tips and EQ the low end by +3db has addressed the sound to my liking. Now I don't want to give them up. I only asked for advice as I don't want to buy another b100 pair if there are better options available. My main excuse for upgrading is the fact I stood on them and snapped one of the nozzles. Hope this helps in any way. If you require any further advise, let me know - I'll be happy to reply.
