    They're loud enough to do so, but I wouldn't say it's ideal. I listened to Dire Straits' Lady Writer. And I prefer the my Macbook's speakers. I here more details through those speakers than through my P5's on max volume around my neck.

  • They sound ok, you'll hear pretty good dynamic range since the drivers are pretty large and efficient. Having them on is much better as the foam backed leather pads do a good job of sealing the acoustic chamber.
