Once a brand known for inexpensive, high-value IEMs like the Delta, Brainwavz Audio has beefed up their lineup over the last year or so, adding several premium products to their offerings, including several balanced armature IEMs and a new studio monitor headphone.
In August, they announced their most ambitious and most expensive model to date, the Alara Planar Magnetic headphone. Planar Magnetic models are known to have more detailed and precise sound than dynamic models, but they also generally cost more, with the most coveted models costing well over a thousand dollars.
However, companies like HifiMAN and Audeze are making some great sounding models that cost around $500, and that’s where the Alara falls, carrying a list price of $550. But starting this week, Brainwavz is offering a $50 discount for pre-orders, bringing them down to $500 for those who order them prior to the in-stock date of Dec 13th.
