Hey there everyone, so MP4Nation just put up their brand new Brainwavz HM9 up for pre-order with a 30$ discount on it for anyone who plans on pre-ordering it.
Jaycar, NVX Audio and a few others are also rebranded Fischers.
I love the HM5, and would want to try the HM9. Seems to have great build quality and is fold-able with a neat set of cables [ including one for the phone :-) ].
Would help to consider Zoro HD too. Tyll Hertsens of Innerfidelity had reviewed the Noontec Zoro (non-HD version) and provided good feedback, just as Steve Guttenberg has provided for the Zoro HD.
I would tilt towards HM9 though provided someone reviews it to be good.
There is no dearth of Beats clones, and both these are no exceptions!
Yeap, the Fischer Audio FA003 (both plastic and woodback), the Brainwavz HM5 and the NVX Monitor are the same headphone. Simply rebranded.
The HM5 gained a lot of popularity recently because it's simply easier to get (Fischer is Russian and often hard to find a distributor that ships for most people, and those that did had pretty long wait times) and the initial cost has been low by a few dollars. So easier access and a slightly lower price equates to more purchasing.
hm5, fa-003, jaycar digitech pro monitors, lindys etc are all manufactured by yoga. google yoga cd-880.hm3 is yoga cd-68...new line of fischer audios are made by esmooth etc. great headphones thoough...but i would never spent money on their products. propably there will be a cheaper version available soon enough. jaycars cost about quarter of the price fa is sold for. i have two awesome looking headphones built out of wood and metal heading my way. i will rview those when i get them. 60$ a piece. if you buy 100 headphones it's about 30$ a piece. I wouldnt be surprised if those will be new fischer and brainwavz headphones...selling for 300$. sorry about the typos...writing on a cellphone is not that convenient.
Still brainwavz like Fischer both has great reps delivering good headphones with seriously great sounds. So I for one am curious about these.
And i want to know how they compare with 1350, Senns 25/amperiors and ofcourse the mighty m80s.
Cant wait for the reviews.
