    The convenience of digital music had without me realising it superseded the enjoyment of the music itself. Being able to skip arou The convenience of digital music had without me realising it superseded the enjoyment of the music itself. Being able to skip around a music collection of tens of thousands of tracks manually or on shuffle had become the defining reason for owning an iPod. Wow my entire record collection in my pocket! Then I treated myself to these gorgeous headphones, the design and build quality alone almost selling me on them. But the purity of the sound and the crispness of the tones has transformed the way I listen to my music. Even the most familiar piece of music that I purchased on vinyl decades ago and re-purchased on compact disc and then downloaded digitally is transformed into a fresh listening experience by these headphones. Dozens of tiny sounds that had been buried within the grooves had been unearthed, and I found myself listening, really listening until the track finished. To close your eyes and hear your favourite music with new clarity is quite astonishing, as if your ears had been syringed ! It reminded me of the first time I put on a pair of prescription glasses, I had always assumed that the world was blurred for everyone, it was as if I had had my eyes removed, cleaned, polished and re-fitted. These headphones will do the same for your ears! I'm not someone who can spend £250 on a set of headphones on a whim, so a lot of thought went into buying them, and I went through the usual apprehension about whether I should have bought a cheaper pair, did I really need a pair at all! But within a few minutes of putting them on I knew that I had made the right decision. I've made myself playlists of tracks I hadn't listened to for ages, it even made me listen to Dark Side of the Moon for the first time in probably fifteen years, I'm from that generation who used the album as a way of setting up a hi-fi and like a time machine for the ears it again made me marvel at the wonders of stereo sound ! :-) If you don't buy these headphones for yourself, buy them for your ears!

    Probably like many others, the prospect of forking out nearly 300 notes on a set of headphones does chill me to the bone, so I did Probably like many others, the prospect of forking out nearly 300 notes on a set of headphones does chill me to the bone, so I did a lot of research and more importantly listening to many headphones.
    I initially had my heart set on the Dr Dre Studio Beats after checking them out in the Apple Store Newcastle and almost bought them then and there but I am pleased I held my passion.
    As much as I liked the Dre's I just could not get away from the fact that they are a little plasticy and then when when you read the reviews on many sites you notice just how many people are having trouble with them breaking... not good.
    After really just stumbling across the B&Ws and how well they were being reviewed I thought I needed to audition them.
    I am not new to the B&W brand as I have Hi-Fi speakers by them, so my expection was for them to perform well, so it was off to the Apple Store to compare these with the Dre's and the Bose with my iPod and my eclectic musical taste.
    I tested all three with tracks by Radiohead, Muse, Jane's Addiction, Kanye, Lupe, Zero 7, David Gilmour and Joe Purdy so a right old bag full.
    Out of the three the Bose fell first, the Noise Cancelling is superb but does put a little too much pressure on your eardrums for my liking plus out of all three they were the hardest for the iPod to drive and needed turning up high to get any decent sound level.
    The B&W and Dre Studio Beats both are superb but in the end it came down to two main points, firstly the Dre's plastic feel and the poor reviews online backing this up but more importantly sound quality, I feel that the sound is boosted too much in the higher frequencies and once you lock onto this it is hard to ignore. They are very good but the B&W just pips it for me.
    So after a long couple of weeks I have decided on the B&Ws. With these beauties there is not plastic just a great leather and metal build. They are very comfy and most importantly they SOUND FANTASTIC. Bass response is very good and the mids and highs are handled very well. Nothing feels forced and you dont need to give yourself a break after listening, you can actually relax while listening and hear the recording as it was intended.
    So do yourself a favour and go and audition these and by all means the other brands and see what you think. These things have just breezed onto the scene without a hail of hype or premiership footballers wrapping them around their necks post match and for that demand a listen.
    Whichever way you go all these Headphones are fantastic but the B&Ws are just a cut above.

However, very pleased to say they do not disappoint!

    Build quality is as you would expect from B&W, a great piece of engineering and they look great. As for comfort, I thought that the "finest new zealand sheeps leather" was a bit of a marketing speak but they are so comfy!

    And as for sound... absolutely sublime and have surpassed my expectations. Tested them with Maxwells track "Ascension" at lossless on my iPhone - Its a track I know very well and I am just speechless. Worth every penny single penny and takes some topping in this price range.

    The sound was very crisp and bright...nothing mind blowing but very good...possibly a tiny bit thin sounding at times but the sound was not the issue.

    The issue for me was the comfort.

    The sound isolation is achieved by getting a tight fit onto the ear but after about five minutes it actually starts to ache.....the leather is clamped against the ear by the ultra tight headband. they are comfy at first but soon become very uncomfortable.

    Make sure you give them a good try first if you really want them.

    Bowers & Willkins have come up with another great new product, and I have to say, I'm literally blown away by the P5, in every dom Bowers & Willkins have come up with another great new product, and I have to say, I'm literally blown away by the P5, in every domain :

    + Outstanding built quality : genuine leather, aluminium, stainless steel, ... miles ahead of the competition. Cable and ear pads are replacable, and the design of the headphones really feels sturdy and reliable, meaning you're gonna spend quite some time with these lovely headphones.

    + Good looking : I didn't expect less from B&W. The most beautiful cans I've ever come across. They're sleek, pure and elegant. Luxury and simplicity.

    + Fair noise isolation, some of the best passive isolating headphones on the market. They'll put you in a "bubble", leaving you alone with your music.

    + Of course, amazing sound quality : A balanced, warm, rich and detailed sound.
    Bass aren't too invasive, mids are simply magical and clear, highs are precise without being agressive. They get you a relaxed yet accurate listening. Truly a concert for one !

    + And finally, a very convincing packaging : a replacement cable, a soft travel pouch, an adaptor, ... Plenty of stuff included with the headphones.


    Certainly one of the best choice for mobile use, and great value for money. The Porsche of headphones.
