No Bright Treble! So I love them right out of the box, bass quality is on par with if not a bit deeper than the HFI-780's, the HFI-780 with HM5 pads beat them in comfort but the HM9's might just be a better all rounder than the 'Sones.

I was going to try the HM5's but after reading and comparing them to the FA-003 Ti's, I'd rather have the Fischer's based on the look and build quality, I like the metal yokes and those plush pads are real leather.

So I am glad I chose the HM9's to review, I feel they will work out very nicely!

Yes, the weight I have concerns about younger teenagers, in particular females holding the weight of HM9 over many hours. The pads are very much like XB500's if you've ever worn them but smaller in diameter. Considering it's Winter here I can't test for sweat and heat build up due to lack of air under your ear but it should be ok.

I really love the HM9 for its appearance, almost futuristic or alien type approach and believe that's what the headphone is a large percentage about. Grabbing the mainstream.

For mainstream users Brainwavz hit the nail on the head with these VS the Beatz and Skullcandy. I think that most females would rather use the HM3's or one of the nicely colored Incipio NX-100 version's.

That's what I thought when I saw them in person, I thought damn they look cool. One of the first things to pop in my head was I'd take HM9's physical appearance over beats any day. Like we've said, they're super super cool.

Sweet setup TD, the Colorfly and E11 fit like a glove too:) Love that pouch, does it have dual zippers on it?

Thanks!

Yes dual zippers and the Velcro flap covers a front pocket for IEM's etc... 

Lowepro Rezo 30

 

Nite-Ize Clip Case "Cargo Wide" works great too but the Lowepro is better.

Nice, I love when you phones cable can come straight out without being bent. Awesome pic as usual:beerchug:

Sony HD5 > JDS C5 > HD25-13-II

 

This set up really brings out the hd25s mids.

So you still have the Nite-Ize? Thought it was going to be a pay-it-forward for you? That yoke type flap is one of the best features of that case because it allows easy cable access:wink_face:

Nope this is a different Nite-Ize, Cargo Wide $8 on Amazon. The custom one was sent on its way to Oregon a long time ago.

I just love the belt clip on the Nite-Ize cases.

Yes, their belt clip rocks and seems almost indestructible! When it comes to nylon pouches it is ultra heavy duty:cool:
