[Review] Brainwavz HM5, A New Neutral Champ - Page 98

I am pretty sure you won't be disappointed! Just remember to leave it 24h or more with some books in between to reduce the clamping force. After the first week of use, these will become very very comfortable. You can take advantage of it and maybe burn them in, that's up to you.

I received them last night at 6:56pm GMT!!! biggrin.gif not allowed to use it until tomorrow though but they definitely came through with a sansa clip+ black can't wait!!! a word of advice please though, what should I use for burn in, could I use raw frequencies?

been listening to them for the past few days and they are AMAZING, however, sometimes voices can seem ever so slightly grainy, also, the case is a bit of a menace to put in my bag but otherwise. as I just said AMAZING

Do the poly fill and electric tape mod to tighten up the sound

These headphones look identical to the LINDY Premium Hi-Fi Headphones.

 

Are they the same company just under 2 different brand names?

post #1461 of 1675

Yes, they are. There are a lot of threads about this. If you cannot find them let me know.

As somebody said in other thread, these have kind of a "cavernous" sound with the voices... It completely disappears with the mod. The mod is highly recommendable, they become a little bit more neutral and natural sounding.

yeah it does, when i listen to any vocals there's just a little grain to it, you'd have to be looking for it though, and ashade you were right my sansa powers it soooo easily

I think I heard that during the burning in. You can try leaving it during a couple of nights playing music. After the mod and the burning in it sounds... Awesome!!! It may be the quality of the songs as well.

 

Please, tell me back in a couple of weeks to let me know if i´m wrong or not.

Interested to hear more about your re-cable, and where you got the wood cups separately.

 

Thanks, Kevin

this is a very late reply, however the wood cups is made by a friend of mine who happens to work in workshop that has CNC milling machines. the canare cables are custom made by somebody else in my city. I live in Jakarta, Indonesia. the wood cups cost about 70-75 dollars to make. the cable cost around 40-50 dollars.. if i remember correctly... 

 

hope that helps. :D

Ashade, I know it's a bit late but I noticed you also have managed to get your hands on a pair of these lovely headphones, did you go for the fischer, lindy or brainwavz? I had to go for lindy as they were the only ones stocked on amazon at the time biggrin.gif

I went with the Jaycar because they were 75$ including shipping. They came with the zipped bag, the long cable and a spare pair of pads. I'm pretty happy with this buy. Amazing value for the headphones. How is the invoicing of the Lindy? Do you like them? Have you done the mod?
post #1468 of 1675

Where can I purchase these from in the U.S.? I have searched but no go.

post #1469 of 1675

They send them from Australia (yes... they do. XD)

I got them with no problem in like one to two weeks.

The Lindy's are spare pads, cable and bag, pretty much the same as Jaycar, although I could have bought the Jaycars for nearly half the price I thought the pricing looked a little dodgy so I went with my instincts. I haven't done the mod, not brave enough yet, tested with other tracks and the grainy vocals were just Gotye, and they were all 100 or at least 99.99% quality so I don't know what's up with those, maybe it's something up with the guys microphone, or I could have scratched the cd. I checked the right cup to see if there was anything wrong with the speaker (it seemed more prominent with the right one) no cracks or any scrunching. Tested other tracks and what do you know, no grainy vocals.
