This thread is very interesting because I have the HM5 as well and LOVE THEM! With the Velour Pads from Shure, it seems to have cut down the reverb a lot. The sound is fantastic
So as of now, I am not sure what to do. I still have the Uptowns (and Downtowns) both sitting unused in their boxes.
Not sure if I should open the Uptowns and try them?
EDIT, decided to trade/sell them. If that does not work out, maybe I will try them then.
