  • 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.
  • Pros: comfort, tonality, soundstage, neutrality, isolation
  • Cons: the included case is useless to me, but that is really it.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Does everything well for its price
  • Cons: treble is ted too bright

  • 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.
  • Pros: Quite Neutral, Accessories, Value
  • Cons: Slightly Bass Light

  • 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!
  • Cons: None yet.

  • Summary: I liked these when I first got them but over time as I listened to more and better headphones realized they are not very good. They're not all bad but I think the cons outweigh the pros.
  • Pros: Comfy, comes with lots of accessories
  • Cons: Not all that neutral, numerous cons in the sound outweigh the positives, build quality is meh
