BRAINWAVZ HM5 Over-ear Headphone Review
Despite the high notes straying a little outside of our ideal limits, the BRAINWAVZ HM5s' frequency response is notably flat, meaning most frequencies of sound are reproduced at roughly the same volume. While on its face it may not seem like the best way to listen to music, it actually lends itself well to equalizing. Without altering the response of the playback however, you will note that there maybe isn't as much bass as you're used to, or want. Be sure to check out media players that will allow you to control how your music is reproduced.
There is an appreciable amount of distortion with the BRAINWAVZ HM5s, but not enough to warrant a precautionary tale. The total distortion sum is actually on the smaller ed, and you shouldn't notice it in your music.
If you have the finely-tuned ears of a head and torso simulator, you'll probably notice that the BRAINWAVZ HM5s tend to shift which channel is louder than the other in a relatively unpredictable pattern. However, if you merely have really good human hearing, you may only notice a tiny shift in the highest end of frequencies, though it won't be enough to ruin your listening experience.
