Conclusion

You’ll see I have no listed cons for the HM5, and deservedly so. For the $120 or so you can pre-order the HM5 for you can’t ask for more. The build quality is absolutely top notch from top to bottom, from cable to ear cups. The included accessories is just a huge bonus, Brainwavz didn’t need to include two cables, but they did, as well as an adaptor. I think that simply goes above and beyond what they had to. The sound is something that won’t immediately please you, it’s good out of the box, but it’s when you realize the subtleties that make it so good you’ll appreciate it. The delicate balance it gives songs that sometimes sound congested on other headphones, the polite yet present presentation is just fantastic.

The HM5 are for the person who wants a musical, neutral, clean and detailed sound. Are these as detailed as the K701 or RE272? No, but never once did I feel like I was missing anything in the music, while enjoying it far more than on either of those headphones that were simply too cold and analytical for me. These are one of the best values in the headphone world.
