Do Brainwavz HM5 and Fischer FA-003 use the same drivers? - Page 4

post #46 of 89

Ahhh, I just bought a headphone and now this comes along! Thanks haha.

 

This headphone seems almost too good to be true. Great neutral sound, isolating, durable, lightweight, detachable cables (with portable cable), decent looks, easily driven, AND a Low price. What in the world.

 

Right now I'm pretty happy with my modded t50rps but do you think these might sound slightly better than those? I did mods very similar to the BMF modification with slight tweaks. Sadly I don't have access to an HD 650/600 so I don't know how it would compare to those but many say the T50rps with mods are close if not better than the Senns.

How much did it cost you to modify the T50RPs? We will all be interested to see a comparison.

I also have modded my T50RPs, and I pre-ordered the HM5s. I'm planning on using the HM5s to dial in the mods on my T50RP, since I know the HM5s are fairly neutral. I'll post some impressions/comparisons when I get them in.

 

I would have to guess that the T50RPs have more potential. I mean, with people saying LFF's modded T50RPs are some of the best headphones they've ever heard...yeah, I'm doubting the HM5s will be better than a properly modded pair of T50RPs.

I spent around 30 dollars for all the mods, so in total with the phones right around 100. I know for a fact it beats the ath m50 and phiaton ms400 since I have direct access to those for comparing but I would assume the HM5 does the same. Looking forward to your comparision Hans. Lol I can't wait until LFF releases the specs for his Paradox next year. Gonna be sweet.

The HM5 isn't a "better" headphone than the M50, they're different. A basshead would dislike the HM5, but would like the M50, for instance.

I don't believe he's planning on releasing any information on his T50RP mods. I was just using it as an example of the potential the T50RPs have.

I've been slowly listening, had a lot going on with the holidays. The HM5 definitely expose unbalanced frequencies in recordings though, for instance in Sara Bareilles' song "Love Song" it's easy to tell that the vocals were pushed way too high in the mix compared to the rest.

I can't remember if i mentioned this before, but we might get the HM5 as early as Thursday, if so, all preorder will be sent out Friday, those that choose EMS/Fedex might get their units as early as Saturday/Monday :)

 

There's good news for us folks who have made a pre-order.

wow now im interested, i have AD900 and i think its all great headphone with already 80% to be my liking.

the things is the upper mid that sometimes a bit harsh, aside that everything already great.

The HM5 have a slight upper mid bump, but it's very slight and definitely less hot than the Ad900.
