I heard about the hm5 in the other thread and heard they are great. I am confused though are all these the same headphones?? I might want to pick up a pair but why are there like 5 different brands when they are all the same anyone know?
So HM5/FA-003/Lindy/Soundmagic/Jaycar Pro Monitors are all the same? i am confused
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I do not think Soundmagic has a headphone that matches the the FA-003/HM5/Jaycar.
But the others are all the same headphone, the FA-003 also comes with Velour ear pads.
Somewhere in Asia there is a OEM manufacturer for this headphone, everyone else buys them wholesale and puts their own name on them.

So far can not find anything below $140.
Maybe try the Takstar Pro 80 headphones, sells for around $88, should have more bass the FA-003/HM5/Jaycar series.

After reading a bunch about the FA-003 and the ridiculously cheap Jaycar deal period where they sold for $80 bucks and I am so sad I missed it. I have been looking for a sub $100 closed headphone for about 2 weeks and researching constantly and the best seems to have been the HM5/FA-003 clones when they were under a hundred. I haven't heard them but all the comparison's I have read have been with like the Sennheiser 600 and other +$200 headphones. Thought about snagging a Koss DJPro100 but the reviews seemed mixed except from a minority that loves it. Guess I will just wait for the Creative Aurvana Live! to drop from $99.99 on amazon... seems to be my best bet.
