New Brainwavz samples on the bench :)

Post by Marcus » Fri Nov 11, 2011 10:21 am

We've just received our Brainwavz HM3 (fullsize headphones) and M4 (canal) samples - I haven't tried the M4 yet, but the HM3 are pretty nice. Lightweight, comfy, really nice sound.

Pricing/more info to come :)

am keen to sample the M4 (of course I will bring my own tips), what size of tips they use, is it the same with M1/2/3?

Sub-$100, we've placed our initial order so stock will be in as soon as they arrive.

I gotta say, the HM3 is one damn fine sounding headphone for the price...

Like Vsonic-worth-2-3x-its-price damn? :D

I need a canalphone upgrade. The Vsonic tips are just god uncomfortable no matter what you try
Cowon J3 -> Vsonic R02ProII | B2 | T50P
DACMagic -> Matrix M-stage -> DT250 | AD900 | MS-1 | A2

Dave - if you come in you can have a listen to the sample pair :)

Quick try of the M4 - I don't like them as much as the M3, going to have to spend more time with them.

Marcus - do you think the HM3 could be the new portable headphone go to? :paranoid:

Possibly, but they're a little larger than some may consider fully portable.

How well do they run off all those sansa clip+ you got a while back? Is it underpowered?

Full sized headphone, aye?
Would be interesting for us non-canalphoners to finally experiment on the Brainwavz brand :D

Can you give us an idea what we will be looking at price-wise for these bad boys yet, Marcus?
