thanks...


I would describe them as neutral and laid back with a great soundstage.

I'm looking forward to them.  I just ordered them and with the current savings for this weekend, I spent an extra $17.00 to have them sent via FedEx.  Hopefully, it's a bit quicker (2 - 7 days) as opposed to their standard shipping that they provide as a free option.  Then again, if Amazon gets their delivery so they can fulfill the orders, it might be even quicker.

So will the price on these go up after this weekend? Is this a promo?

 

Available only through mp4nation?

Just click buy, with the hm5 actually in stock now, and the extending the pre order price to sunday it is actually a good deal since many people have been waiting since january or something. I have one, and hm5 is my fave headphone right now, while i also do have athm50s le, ms1i and goldring 150.

And if u dont like plenty of people here will take it off ur hands smily_headphones1.gif

I ordered a pair of these :)

It was between these and M50s, but the fact that these were only $120 and shipped for free to Canada was a big plus. They also look really comfortable, where M50s are supposedly not always that comfortable. Neutral sound signature is also something that appeals to me.

Could you give me comparison between HM5 and Goldring? Actually I picked up Goldring DR150 last week because I've been waiting for like, 3 months for HM5 in stock and can't wait any longer. Thinking about buying HM5 when it come to local shop here (dunno when, maybe, like, next year or so #sarcasm)

It will be interesting when headfiers start to get these in. I'd like to see what the verdict is overall.

post #835 of 1671

Did these ship for anyone yet?  I figured they'd be out by the end of friday but maybe not.

Well if u asking me, i prefer the hm5 over goldring anytime of the day. First hm5 has better details. The other while goldring dr150 kinda tip a lilbit on the warmside.. Hm5 gives a more neutral sound. Also soundstage is also better on the hm5. The fact that hm5 is a closed headphone also gives better isolation and the last but not the least comfort on hm5 is awesome for me. I would say u mightwant to jump on the current preorder price. I seriously love the sound that coming from hm5.

Tho hm5 sounds more engaging when i listen to music while dr150 sounds abit analytical.

There's already 50+ pages in this thread of people talking about it with multiple reviews, not to mention the huge FA-003 review thread by LFF as well.

post #838 of 1671

Thank your sir, you just re-kindled my interest for HM5. I found DR150 has good sound-stage dept. But then my other headphone is just ATH-SJ33. Really no contest there.

I didn't have any method for paying online, and for the price they said they gonna put on HM5 locally, it just cheaper (and easier) to buy from local store :)

Now back to waiting HM5 arrive on local store...

not to mention you actually can get wood cups for hm5 from the fischer audio stores... http://fischeraudio.com/wood/wood.php

 

 

@matt: the verdicts are here already lol... 56 pages for HM5 and over 150 pages for FA-003. they are the same headphones, well they sound the same since I manage to A/B them with another who has an FA-003.
