Initial Impressions: Brainwavz HM3 - Page 2

post #16 of 25

Really? I have an ear size of about 2.5 inches and they fit AROUND my ears, no pinching. Feels very comfortable... Just get's sweaty so quickly...

Are there any suggestions for alternatives to these cans?

 

Don't have any suggestions for other headphones, but different pads made them super comfy for me.  I use the Shure DJ750 replacement pads, and have never looked back.

Is the Razer Orca just another clone of the same idea such as the Incase ft?

just got a pair for 63 usd, factoring in shipping here. not bad. need to burn them in though, and while it can be driven by a portable, an amp just seems necessary as i had to turn my volume way up just to get it sounding where i need them to be. wish we had it on sale here for around 40 usd, but im still happy with the signature.

How do these compare sound wise to the Incipio f38? They are the same housing but I'm wondering; is the extra $20-$25 worth it for better sound (IF they have better sound)?

The sound is exactly the same to my ears and I own both.  I actually like the pads on the Incipio's better but I still prefer them with the more comfortable Shure DJ750 replacement pads.  You get an extra set of ear pads and a nicer box with the Brainwavz, but the Incipio's come with a small microfiber-like pouch.

It has been quoted many times that the Incipio F38, the Brainwavz HM3, and the Fischer FA-003? Or 004 I don't recall the number but they're all the same (same sound) albeit they may have different accessories or cords (coiled vs uncoiled).

 

Incipio F38 seems the cheapest made to me, nearly no accessories, you'd have to buy your own Shure SRH750DJ earpads to make it comfier.

 

I'd go with the Brainwavz HM3. They seem better built and they come with an extra set of earpads by themselves. The Shure earpads are about 15-20 bucks so it adds up to nearly about the same ^^

 

Hope this helps. If you're looking for how they actually SOUND LIKE instead of how they compare to each other, then look for some other thread because as I have stated and many others have stated, these three are identical.

Does anyone know how do these compare with the Koss Porta Pros? It may not be a fair comparison in many aspects, but I own the Porta Pros and I want to know if the HM3s will make a good upgrade. Thanks.

I don't think I'll call it an upgrade, to me it's more of a side grade. I do like my HM3 but I haven't use it in months, but my portapro still get plenty of use.

I see. I love my Porta Pros too but it's been a while since I had full sized (closed type) headphones and this is why the HM3s attracted my attention. They do seem also well-built while they are not pricey at the same time but if I'm not going to get better/upgraded sound quality compared to what I'm getting from my Porta Pros, it might be better to look in another direction. Thanks for the input mate! Really appreciate it.
