Summary: I like to call myself an audiophile. I am a purist, I have used the Audio Technica ATH-M40X before because of it's famed flat response but I found it to be quite warm sounding with a emphasis on upper bass-lower mids which made things a bit unnatural/unreal for me.
Summary: These were very good studio monitor headphones, very comfortable with good sound. Unfortunately after a year and two weeks use (meaning that they are out of warranty) the plastic of the arm has broken and no replacement parts are available.
Excellent clarity neutral sounding headphones with great comfort and lots of range with a graphic equalizer

Summary: I had been testing a lot of headphones at street stores from JVC Xtreme Bass to Audio Technica M50x. Now it was clear as crystal that both the M50x and Brainwavz HM5 were the superior headphones in crystal clarity on various genres of songs I played through my iphone.
Summary: Although I own a couple of Sennheisers, I was looking for a nice pair of closed-cup headphones. Something good but will not break the bank. After reading some 'too good to be true' reviews, I thought I would take a chance on these.
Summary: For the audiophile who prefers neutral sound quality, the Brainwavz HM5 Studio Monitor Headphones may be your first and last choice. I've been testing them on laptops and a BOSE portable CD player and am both pleasantly surprised and amazed by the exceptional sound quality.
Summary: Brilliant Sound, Brilliant Build, Built to Last. I received these Brainwavz HM5 for review. I am not an audiophile expert but I always try to review as I see it. Not as polished as other reviewers but I always try to cover all the things I would want to know if I was thinking about buying this set...
