Summary: Brainwavz HM5 Review
The Brainwavz HM5 is a headphone that I have been very intrigued about for quite a long time. I have heard the FA-003 and some other headphones that use the same driver many times and always felt like it had something that really made it stand out.
Summary: I bought a pair of HM5s about 6 months ago. They give you absolutely great sound for under $150 but I ran into a big problem. Both sides where the slider connects to the headphones started to crack within a week of one another.
Summary: I stumbled upon these headphones after numerous hours of research. To be quite honest, I'd never heard of this brand before so I was a bit hesitant before making the jump; especially after owning products from major brands such as Shure, Audio Technica and Beyerdynamic.
Pros: Easy to EQ, comfortable for long sessions, price!
Summary: Brainwavz has done it again! While there are several audio companies offering a nice budget-king-FOTW IEM here, a feature-packed portable amp there, I can't think of many that have put together the streak of high-quality products at affordable prices in the short time the way that the people at...
Summary: 2nd Review lets do this Instead of talking about the stuff that I have talked about in the video below , will focus here on sound The day I got them I remember the first session with it was listening to "Live in Paris" by Diana Krall , I was stunned my the smoothness it had , just a very smooth...
Pros: Hyper Comfortable , Smooth throughout the board , Very distant for being a closed , great for smooth listening , PRICE !!
Cons: Withdrawn Sub-Bass , Detail not up there for critical listening , clamping , clarity , flimsy headband adjustment
Summary: I need to start by thanking Brainwavz for the HM5 to review. They had sent me their S5 IEM a couple months back to review, and afterwards had asked me if I was interested in reviewing any other headphones of theirs, and I asked for the HM5.
Summary: I am penning down my opinion about the Brainwavz HM5 Over ear Studio Monitor headphones. I will try to keep this review as simple as possible and I hope it would be easy to read, and help fellow enthusiasts to understand more about the HM5.
Summary: There has been plenty of monitoring headphone floating around in the market some of which are more on the affordable range such as, the Shure SRH-840 which I likes a lot, the Audio Technica ATH-M50 which doesn’t really suit my taste as well but it is still good for what it is.
Summary: SEE PROS & CONS.
NOTE: The clamping factor will obviously differ from person to person, but I'm surprised to find little mention of it, as it is the sole reason I'd never think twice about the HM5. Shame, really. Considering they do sound great.
Pros: Sound as great as they're said to.
Cons: The clamping force is EXTREME at first. As per some kind suggestions, I stretched them out overnight and now I've absolutely no complaints!
