Looks nice and I suspect it sounds great, especially hardwired. Too bad they are not accepting any orders.

Just a heads up:

 

Anyone looking for a replacement for the original HFM pads, look no further.

 

http://www.mp4nation.net/brainwavz-earphones/brainwavz-hm5-spare-earpad-1pc

 

Super comfortable and shots, does not hinder SQ at all (even a bit better to my ears than the stock)

18 bucks a pair with free shipping.

Feels like real leather, go figure.

 

The website photos really dont do them justice, so here is a pick of my own

Will await your feedback on these pads preproman. Just want to get a larger group of opinions to see if there's any consensus or will it be a waste. I got the pads from Lawton for my TH900s and they proved to be non-beneficial for my listening preferences. So hesitant on pad replacements until I see more written up on them.

I have the Denons as well. To my ears, these are better.
I couldnt get a comfortable fit.
Forming a universal opinion on pads is difficult due to our ears obviously.
Saying that, multiple people are buying the HM5 for their Hifimans after my impression and I really hope they will be liked wink.gif

^^ also, please keep this in mind. Quoting myself

Do note that fitting on the plastic ring is a bit of pain. I had to trimm them a bit (cut off a circular piece off the plastic outer portion) but I had done that once fir the Beyer pads so I used that.
I guess they could probably fit on them stock but...

They are not smaller than the stocks per say, but further stretching would be required.
I cant guarantee that you will be seccessful in fitting them on the stock ring.
I do believe it should be possible but since I hsd a pair of pretrimmed rings I used these (and I managed only so-so)

I'd rather give these pads a run than velour...

Fang sent me an HE6 to include in the review of the Woo WA5 at my request. I want to see how well the hE6 will sound using the K1K 4 pin speaker  output. I am excited to be getting the hE6 for some time to review it with the Woo.
