Brainwavz S5 In Ear Headphones

Very solid product, but not quite iconic.

tomscy2000

Pros: Sprightly bass, decent presentation of detail for the price, bulletproof build quality, generous warranty and accessories

Cons: Prodigious bass veers away from balance and can be distracting, treble can be splashy, probably won't be a permanent fixture for anyone

Disclosure: This review is based off a review unit of the retail version of the S5, provided by Brainwavz. This is my first in-depth encounter with a Brainwavz product, having only demoed previous Brainwavz products very briefly in Hong Kong three years ago.   Brainwavz S5, with a 10 mm dynamic coil driver and CNC metal body   Battleground: The Sub-$100 Price Category & The...

Sennheiser HD 650 Headphones

“I've listenend to all the top offerings from Denon, Audeze, AKG, Hifiman, Ultrasone & Sennheiser and this is one of my personal favourites. It is a true reference class headphone that is very natural sounding, albeit leaning ever so slightly towards a darker tone. The sound is detailed, smooth and richly textured, especially drums come alive amazingly well. It has no problem spanning all...” --TwoEars

Audio-Technica ATH-M50S

Audio-Technica ATH-M50S

“(Disclaimer: This review was written while considering the very low price-point of the M50, and what you can get for that amount of money. It does not mean the M50 can go up against the high-end headphones that cost several hundred to thousands of dollars. My main headphones are high-end headphones, and the M50 is only used while I'm doing tracking or traveling. I wouldn't use it as my everyday...” --Lunatique

Audeze LCD2 Planar Magnetic Headphones

Audeze LCD2 Planar Magnetic Headphones

“I felt extremely priveledged to be included in the first group of people to hear the long awaited and much anticipated release of Audeze's LCD2. Some history: I am not new to planar magnetic technology and have been an avid fan and disciple of planar magnetic headphones ever since I was lured into the murky waters by the vintage yamaha orthodynamic headphones. If not for the keen efforts of...” --dBel84

Sennheiser HD 800 Headphones

Sennheiser HD 800 Headphones

“ REVIEW: Sennheiser HD 800Overview Reviewing a statement product is tough – especially one that was as highly anticipated as the HD800. There is already a huge buzz on head-fi about them, and many have already declared them the best dynamic headphone on the market. But most of these proclamations have been from owners, One potential difference between my listening to the HD800 and other...” --Skylab

Sennheiser HD-598

Sennheiser HD-598

“Note: This is my first audiophile headphones so i can't compare them to any other headphones out there for the same price.   These headphones are well designed, fit your head perfectly and are extremely lightweight. They are made out of plastic but they don't look cheap. They are very solid in my opinion. You can wear these for a long session and never worry about them. This is the...” --revanxp

Sennheiser HD 600

Sennheiser HD 600

“The Sennheiser HD600 is an open dynamic circumaural head-phone which Sennheiser market for audiophiles, and also state as ideal for studio monitoring.     Pre-amble (about me at time of writing) I'm a 44 year old music lover.  I don't say audiophile - just love my music.  Over the last couple of years, I have slowly changed from cheaper listening set-ups to my current...” --Brooko

V-MODA Crossfade M-80

V-MODA Crossfade M-80

“ So here's my first mini-review. Kinda late, but I like these so much that I had to write a review for them xD   Intro One of the reasons I bought the V-MODA M80 is because I wanted a portable headphone that has good SQ and yet has the ability to turn heads. I also wanted my portables to have very good build quality and decent isolation because I will be using them during travel....” --Kagelou

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II Professional Headphone

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II Professional Headphone

“ The HD25-1 has been my favorite (trans)portable headphone for quite a few months. I spend a few nights a week away from my home rig and the HD25 works wonders with my iBasso D10 and netbook. Hi-fi on the go has never been so rugged and simple. Best of all is their sonic versatility – though my backup portables, the AKG K181Dj, excel with certain genres and recordings, the Sennheisers perform...” --ljokerl

Sennheiser IE 8 In-Ear Headphones

Sennheiser IE 8 In-Ear Headphones

“ This is my first top tier IEM. I own it quite a long period of time.   I am very happy with the SQ.... Anyway here is my review after 5 days of usage =)  ( i left it in seller website)   Честно говоря звук сразу после распаковки был ужасен :) Но я знал что динамическим затычкам надо время что бы 'раскрытся'. Так и произошло. Буквально через 5 часов они зазвучали значительно лучше....” --Vladimir_F1
