[Review] Brainwavz HM5, A New Neutral Champ - Page 107

post #1591 of 1680
Anyone have any problems with intermittent sound coming from one of the ears? On the right side of my HM5, the sound's cutting out and I'm concerned the jack is loose as the cable is completely inserted. Suggestions? (Not under warranty)

Open them an check the soldering on the wires.

try another cable and be sure that the plugs "snap" in.

Will this headphone work well without amp direcly fom my pc? I found them used for 75€ and I think it's a great deal.

yes they will work direct from your pc, although amping gives them some extra.

Thanks!! But if it's not enough maybe I could buy an Asus xonar DG to make it a bit better.

Are there any solderable after market plugs, that snap into the cans? I want to self assemble a cable with a microphone. Somewhere in this thread (or maybe the fa-003 iirc) there was a sketch of the dimensions of the plug, can't find it right now, but I can measure that myself in a week or two. All previous comments about plugs were just about plugs that fit mechanically but not snap in. Has anything changed and someone found a working plug?

 

If there are no solderable plugs on the market, has anyone experience with modifying a plug on a lathe (? this rotating cutting tool) to fit the headphones? Or maybe guesses what plugs would be good to drill(/lathe/cut no a native speaker sorry) you could recommend? Do the cables need to have a flexible pit(/dent/nut?) or can it be a metal one?

be careful to not overstretch these phones when widening over a row of books.I nearly snapped my headband but i guess i was lucky. Ihad stretched them to maximum and realised that was a bit too far. Nearly 100$ in the bin:)

in my opinion, the clamping force lightens as you use it, I've had mine for 7 months (and two days XD) and the clamping force has gone down

Hello guys! Im a new owner of HM5 too! This is my first time investing in a Neutral headphone..but i'm really suprised by the lack of Bass i am actually hearing from this thing? Its not like I'm a basshead haha i own hm3 previously...and hm3's bass just owns this one hands down..is there something wrong with my unit? Or this is just how Neutral is supposed to be ya? My seller asks me to add an AMP for it instead....

these get better with burn-in and an amp gives them that needed punch. I have an Little Dot MKIII. Be careful to order from davidzhezhe if you´re interested in it.

Hello, Sir! Thank you for the review!

 

I'm kindly asking you to answer the question:

Is the headphone really ABSOLUTELY comfortable? I just could not find the comfort section in the review.

Aren't they warm? If they are not, i understood they are closed. How fully closed headset can be not too warm regarding leather pads???

I suppose only cloth/velour pads may have the balance between overheating and isolation, because they "breathe"

Do not trust sellers. You don't need amp unless it's more than 32 ohm with a very_extra_basic soundcard. I suppose your previous headphones were more bass-oriented.
