Smooth sound and the possibility of modding
  • First of all, I want to note the high quality manufacturing of headphones. The headband is made of durable materials and is credible . Arm height adjustment is quite tough and there is no doubt that something is wrong . Material outer coating resembles a solid rubber, which is not a fingerprint , which positively affects the appearance. Remarkably , these headphones can be easily disassembled and are well suited for modding . At low cost , you can adjust the sound for yourself. Ear pads are very comfortable and soft, fits in the ear them. However, we must pay attention - these headphones are hard enough squeezing his head and not everyone will be comfortable in them long to be . It must be borne in mind. Or it is necessary to bend the upper arc. Headphone sound is something for which we acquire them . If he put it in a nutshell - smooth, very detailed . High does not protrude , and at the same time as many as it should be, calm and soft middle , bass affect its accuracy and rapidity. Although some may be small. It's more Headphones than generalists. For electronic music I would suggest something with more drive . I would say that they are more suitable for a peaceful and melodious music , or for monitoring.

Good headphones
  • I have received the item very qiuckly.
    Here is my impressoins after about a week of listening.
    Sound signature is very neutral. All frequencies are good enough and none is forwarded. sound is detalised enough.
    Soundstage and instruments separation are just outstanding. I was really impressed.
    Cable is very good. It is very flexible as well as thick enough.
    These cans fit is very tight and comfortable enough. While long listening can make you tired.
    Now about what i didn't like. After i used to listen to my rockit sounds r-50 and german maestro gmp400 - these sound a bit more simple. I feel a lack of harmonics and highs are not as crisp and clear as i wanted them to be.
    As a resume i can say that these cans are very and very good for their price. Especially if to use some of discounts which this site can offer. I consider them almost perfect for portable usage as they are not too hard to be powered. The only thing i could say - they need some bassy and bright sounding source with a little U-shaped sound signature iether they can sound dull for most listeners. With my modified Rio Karma i have felt a lack of highs and air in this sound. As well as very good and detailed mids and high quality bass.

Nice Headphones for the price
  • After i got this headphone i wasen't that impressed, i read many review talking about them like the neutral champ but maybe i was hit by the hype train...
    The construction isen't that bad but not as good as many other cans.
    After all for the price they sound quite good.

Hm5 for gaming
  • When i first got the hm5's i was a bit scared that the sound was a bit harsh but nothing a little pink noise wouldn't fix, and wow after a few days the only words i could use to describe the hm5's was Wow. So much detail and such a wide soundstage.
    Something very important to note is that you need an amp to get the full experience, so don't expect you'r smartphone to be powering this beast.
    The 5's have been my choice for Playing(mosly Bf 3) ever since i got them, there is something special about these and i can't put my finger on it but i would recommend these to anyone doubting about investing such a sum, you won't be dissapointed

    I am by no means an Audiophile since i dont feel qualified and i've only owned gaming headsets and countless in ears(haven't found a pair hevy duty enough for my use yet) there will surely be someone more qualified analysing the sound.

  • Наушники понравились, слушаю с ibasso dx50, звук приятный, до этого слушал с audio-tehnika tad400, единственное чем эти уступают, так это максимальной входной мощностью, 100mw по сравнению с 500mW на TAD.

    Так же HM5 довольно тугой обод и сильной давление, вообщем не для больших голов, иначе от сильного сжатия голова болеть будет.

    Кейс новый - твердый кофр, правда думаю мне не пригодится. кабель приятный толстый. Жалко что штекер слишком легко входит в плеер. Может проблема и в плеер, в SansaDisk например у меня все наушники с доп усилием вставляются, что кажется надежней, не думаешь, что кабель выдернется.

    Еще очень жалко, что вторая пара амбушюр не велюровая, если бы велюровые продавались отдельно с радостью купил бы. Хотя можно попробовать поискать велюровые амбушюры от Fisher.

Great Close back headphones for daily listening
  • I've owned these for over a year now and had bought it when they were offering the Fiio 6 amp free with it. They get better each time I listen to them. I have a relatively small head and these fit just perfect without feeling too tight. The fit and finish is good for being mostly made of plastic. The rubberized finish may seem scratched at times but a little cleaning and it looks new, so it wears well. After wearing them for hours on end my only wish is that they offer the velvet cloth ear pads with them. It can get warm with these faux leather pads.

    Sound quality? - They are fairly neutral, but requires amplification to get the most out of them. I have a set of Sennheiser HD-600 with Cardas cables and Zu Mobius Cable and use a Elekit Tube amp to drive them as a "reference point." I am surprised at how much details this headphone can pull compared to the HD600. Its that good. Being a closed design it can feel enclosed at times and definitely lacks the level of Soundstage compared to the HD-600. But at this price, I can take these anywhere I go without worrying and still really enjoy my music. Also no one around me at works complains so there is minimal if any noise leak.

High QPR sound monitoring headphone.
  • Quite a nice packing with a potable bag/ case that allow you to bring the headphone outside safe.

    Build by strong material. Good for portable use.

    Cable can be changed.

    Detailed sound, Amp is preferable, if you are using with mobile phone. Not suitable for basehead, but base performance is really enough for me.

    I cannot find any competitor in this price.

Great Headphones
  • Hello, I'll try to make an objective review, I hope you like it.

    - Build quality and package:

    There is nothing to complain here, the build quality is just great. I don't feel I have to take a great care of them (of course I will), but I don't feel they are going to break easily. The design is great for me but that's only an opinion, It's just I don't like showy things!

    The package is amazing: as you can see in the description it brings more than you would need. (In my opinion a great gift for the customers I hope Brainwavz continues with this policy). The bag is hard and has enough space to keep what you need in there.

    - Comfort:

    The comfort is great, you can wear them for hours without having serious issues.

    I say that because I own the AKG k-271 Mk. II and in my opinion they are slightly less tiring. The comfort is also a bit better for the AKG.

    Don't misunderstand both have a great comfort and you will be able to wear them for hours.

    - SQ:

    I listen almost every kind of music and I tried both with a very open range of styles. (Rock, Funk, Jazz, electronic, classical, acoustic, folk, and so on...)

    Here again I can only compare them to the AKG, both are supposed to be studio monitors and have a flat response.

    My first cans were the AKG and I had read that they could sound cold, I don't really feel that. Maybe they lack a bit of bass but that can be easily solved with some amping and EQ. The detail in high and mids is awesome and the bass response is just right (you have to think that they are for studio purposes)

    The HM5 are just great in terms of sound quality, they are very clear (mostly High and Mids), the soundstage is good, not the best one, but good. The bass is not for bassheads but when you need it it will be there.

    - Conclusion:

    This headphones are great, I waited for the discounts and I think I got a really good earphones. I don't regret buying them at all.

    Now I use them for listening to music and enjoying and the AKG for music production.

    I hope you liked this review.

Цена - качество
  • Наконец-то пришли долгожданные ушки, 44 дня ждать пришлось. Но не зря ждал, звук меня очень порадовал. До этого пользовался Creative Aurvana Live мне они очень нравились пока не послушал эти, звук намного приятнее, музыка зазвучала совсем по-другому. Понравился кейс для хранения. Слушаю их с плеером Cowon C2. В общем я очень доволен, буду рекомендовать друзьям.

Великолепные наушники, надёжный магазин!
  • Эти наушники полный аналог известного брэнда Fischer Audio FA-003, но с лучшей комплектацией и меньшей ценой. Что очень радует, в комплекте оказался улучшенный чехол для хранения. Претензий как к качеству самого изделия, так и к надёжности магазина mp4nation, у меня нет. Как обычно, заказ и доставка прошли быстро, без проблем. Поэтому, хочется покупать здесь ещё, что и вам советую!.
