Pros: Build quality, comfort, sound quality, removable dual entry cable, price
Cons: None


I am unable to comment on the packaging of the HM5 as I have received a loaner model. I can comment on the accessories I've received though and Brainwavz has done a fantastic job here. Included with the HM5 I received were an extra pair of faux leather pads which are good quality here, soft yet firm. Also included was two cables, both being dual entry with a 3.5mm plug and an included 1/4 adaptor. The cables are thick and feel of the utmost quality, I'm thoroughly impressed with them, and the inclusion of a set for each plug rather than the cheaper way out of just giving an adaptor.

Design and Build Quality

The first thing that I noticed about the HM5 was that the build quality was astounding. I picked them up from the soft foam padding they laid in and noticed a nice weight to them and very solid construction even under close inspection. The headphones themselves seem to be clones of the Fischer FA-003, at least aesthetically, and I think that's a great thing. The FA-003 have a very nice clean look to them and Brainwavz has done a great job keeping everything clean while adding it's own little touches.

Starting from the top, the faux leather and soft foam make for a minimal, yet clean looking headband. On the top "BRAINWAVZ" is in a glossy black to accent over the matte black of the faux leather. A little further down you reach the adjustors on the headphones, which is a slightly notches aluminum strip from the right and left that feels very solid when being adjusted in anyway.

Hi all! I was happy to get a pre release pair of the new BRAINWAVZ HM5 Pro Studio Monitor Headphones, the second in the Full Size range of BRAINWAVZ headphones that also includes the HM3's. I have had them just over 3 weeks now, and have really put them through a rigorous and extensive testing period. I will assign a 5 star rating system(5 highest, 1 lowest) to help define how well the HM5's perform. Read on for my impressions:

First of all, build quality will be addressed. The HM5's are very well made, with a solid and well thought out design. The plastics have a rubberized coating on them and do not feel the least bit cheap. The headband is mostly metal, and very strong and adjustable. Padding abounds, with a thick headband with a nice cloth piece on the bottom to alleviate sweating, and thick, soft ear pads that are made of nice leather. It should be noted that the HM5's come with a spare pair of ear pads included as well, nice.
Also included are not one, but two removable cords, one 4.5 feet long and the other a more home stereo worthy 8 feet long. Both are removable by simply unplugging them, via their 3.5mm plugs, from the ear cups. This also makes it easy to get custom length cords if needed, but the two included ones should suffice for most users. The HM5's also come with an airplane adapter as well. To be mentioned here is that the clamping force of the HM5's is a bit high, but during the course of my review they loosened up a bit which was nice. Keep in mind that the despite the higher clamping force, the comfort was still great...all that padding is there for a reason For build quality, I give the HM5's a solid 5 out of 5.

Next up is sound quality, and here the HM5's shine! These are a neutral sounding set of cans, with a wide, spacious sound stage.

Verified Purchase
Coming into buying this pair of headphones I was looking initially at getting either the Ultrasone 780 or the Audio Technica ATH M50, but after checking out some reviews decided to go with these.
I was not disappointed.

Build quality:
The HM5's are made of rubberized plastic with brushed metal ear-cup covers, pleather ear pads and headband cover, fabric headband padding and a metal headband support ribbon. The cord is a removable, dual mono design with a screw-on 3.5mm to 1/4" adaptor. It also comes with a HUGE but very well padded travel case. The materials all feel very high-quality and are appropriate for its price. The only exception to this is the headband padding which compressed down after a few months. 4/5

I like the way the HM5's are styled, that said, they are FAR too large to wear around town without looking like a bit of a dork. 3/5

The pleather ear pads are thick, supple, and very comfortable. The clamping force was a bit high out of the box, but settled down quickly. Some other people have complained that their ears get sweaty after extended use. I have not had this problem in the slightest, but I also live in cold Chicago. So that might have something to do with it. I would have given these a 5/5 for comfort, but the headband padding did not stand up well over time and compressed into the sort of U-shaped well that it is held in. This means the headband digs into my head uncomfortably and has to be moved every hour or two. 4/5

Sound quality:
Here's where these headphones really shine. The HM5's have a wonderfully neutral frequency balance, but still have a tight, punchy bass that never feels weak.
