Brainwavz HM5 review: These sound good with everything


Getting into high-quality sound these days is simpler than it used to be. If you have a computer, for example, you are already halfway there: all you need to do is add a decent-quality output device -- a sound card or a headphone amp/DAC -- and a pair...

Monitors w/ excellent audio quality, soundstage, imaging, comfort, and isolation


Okay, so these are warm-neutral headphones with VERY good soundstage and audio imaging, making them excellent for music, and exceptional for FPS gaming. Though they're marketed as "studio monitors" they're not too flat and analytical (like I said, warm...
