The Brainwavz HM5 is a closed dynamic circumaural head-phone which appears to be a clone of the Fischer Audio FA-003. There is also another similar clone by Lindy. OEM/ODM manufacturer appears to be Yoga Electronics.
Summary: At this price point you can't go wrong, very neutral and comfortable for extended period, slight criticism comes from the clamp, it's a touch harsh (I have a big head). I'm only 4 hours into using them so this could ease off over time.
great headphones, with one rather annoying drawback
25 January 2014
Summary: these headphones are great, theyre comfy, the sound is crisp and clear, and their sound isolation is pretty good too. the sole drawback is their build quality, specifically the quality of the cables themselves.
Summary: I've had them for almost a year. I had to precondition them because they were too tight at first, and they were hurting after a while. I've also had the right staff broken, and mp4nation mailed back the new piece without cost.
Summary: If you're after a neutral, detailed, yet still very natural sounding pair of headphones and don't want to spend upwards of £150 then I'd heavily recommend these, as I've not heard anything better up to and including that price.
