    REVIEW : Revisiting the Brainwavz HM5 – A Retrospective (plus bonus look at pad and cup options)

    Pros: SQ, clarity, comfort, build, balance, accessories, isolation, value, carry case (new), pad options Cons: Clamp force, slightly lacking some bass relative to treble (easy EQ though), pads can get sweaty, not the best for spectacle wearers. For larger views of any of the photos...

    I hate you all :)

    I want to like the Brainwavz HM5 cans that I just got, but they aren't that great.  I wanted to ditch my ad-700's because they lack bass volume, but the HM5's aren't much better.  In fact, the HM5's don't sound as good in most songs I've tested; (anything that doesn't emphasize drums ad-700 >...
