The Smooth Operator

Posted

Pros: good build quality; very smooth and non-fatiguing sound

Cons: slightly veiled sound; some layering issues

As usual I have to thank Audrey and Brainwavz for this unit.   Packaging and Accessories       The packaging is pretty standard. No embossing as with recent Brainwavz models. There is an image of the headphones on the front of the box. On the right side there is a list and description of the included accessories and some of the HM9’s features. On the left side of the box there is a bit more detailed description of the HM9. The back is reserved for the specs, compatibility and the design of the headphones.   When you open the box though you are surprised by the egg shaped hard case kinda reminiscent of opening a Kinder Surprise egg eager to see the...

A High Quality Mainstream Headphone

Posted

Pros: Build, Comfort, Cables, Hard Case, Mainstream Sound

Cons: Slightly Heavy, Ear pads are not quite full size.

Brainwavz HM9 Headphone Review by TrollDragon     In the following review, I would like to present my impression of the Brainwavz HM9 headphone. The HM9's have a nice dual functionality where they work as a full sized headphone for home use and will convert to a folding portable for on the road. I would like to thank Audrey for providing me with the review sample of the HM9. Brainwavz is exceedingly generous to the Head-Fi community and it is greatly appreciated.     Packaging The HM9's arrived at the same time as the R3's I reviewed a while back. As with previous impressions of other Brainwavz products, the packaging on the HM9's is not as splashy as their...

Warm, Colored, and Enjoyable, but Rough and Doesn't Match Competition

Posted

Pros: Stylish; Fairly Comfortable; Included Accessories; Enjoyable sound, though still not great; Most materials look and feel good, but...

Cons: Has stiff competition in this category and doesn't quite match up; Materials feel cheaper than they look; Cups don't swivel side-to-side

Disclaimer: I received the Brainwavz HM9 under the condition I would write a review for it. I set the purchase price at the current going rate on Amazon, which is roughly $120.   Introduction   The Brainwavz HM9 was always a headphone I was curious to try, but my curiosity wasn't strong enough to warrant a purchase. Thanks to the review sample provided by Brainwavz, I was finally able to check them out! Sure, I always thought they looked stylish, but I had no idea how they would sound. Onto the review and analysis!   Looks, Presentation, Comfort, Build Quality, Misc.   I really like the look of the HM9. They're a bit more unwieldy on my head than I initially...

Great Headphone, Warm And Relaxing

Posted

Pros: Looks, Design, Safe Tuning

Cons: Lacks Detail

First I would like to thank Salsera for sending me a HM9 for me to review. Having recently reviewed the rather interesting S5, I felt like I had a general idea which direction Brainwavz were heading in and upon listening to the HM9, I was met with exactly what I was expecting, but it did exceed my expectation a little on a whole. Brainwavz being one of the first brands I came across when I first joined Head-Fi a while back, has always been one of the brands that I have watched.   The HM9 is one headphone that I have kept my eye on from the time that it was first released. I remember saying to myself that it looked like a headphone that was going to compare with the likes of Beats...

Fantastic Design, accessories, and features, but misses the mark on the sound

Posted
Introduction: The Brainwavz HM9 is stylish, sleek, and intimidating. Can those three words even fit together? Notwithstanding this weird combination that embodies the HM9 – and believe me, it fits quite well – it is still passable as fashionable. At $130, the HM9 has some unique features in store. Read on to find out more!     Unit Build: The only term I can think of to describe the HM9 would be ‘tank’. I’m not talking about the main-battle-tanks(MBT) of today, but of a tank somewhere off into the future. The HM9 is surrounded by metal and hard plastic. The side arms are raw and strong in that it’s flat, before bending into a much more ‘soft’ shape; just like the frontal...
