    Great sound. Poor durability

    • Written by from las rozas

    I have a pair since 2010. Sound is awesome, as it is the quality of the materials, but i had to fix them 3 times because of the same problem: one of the cups stop working. Needless to say that i´m extremely careful with them (price deserves it). And it´s a no solution flaw. You have to get them replaced. I´d think twice before buying them, it´s a high invest, and if the warranty period is over you have to pay, as B&W ignore you. There are other headphones in the market with similar sound quality and better durability.

    I think it´s a design flaw, because i have other B&W products (683 and HTM61) and never had a complaint since i bought them 10 years ago

    Outstanding

    I am used to high quality headphones...Sennheiser and Stax are my main home headphones.
    I wanted something comfortable, light weight and full featured ( microphone etc.)...and of course, great sound quality.
    I am very pleased with the sound quality as well as the build quality. They are comfortable for long periods of listening and easy to travel with.
    Highly recommended!!!!

    Top Notch, super comfortable, and great sound

    • Written by from Wadsworth

    I originally bought the P3, and I really did love them, but they just seemed to be missing *something*. I decided that the extra $100 was worth it, so I swapped for these. I've never been so happy with a decision.

    When I first opened the box, the presentation and style of the headphones struck me and actually took my breath away. I've been listening to them for about 6 days now, and they're opening up quite nicely. They bring out things in studio tracks I've never heard before, and with live music, they put you in the middle of the audience. As a musician, and somewhat of an audiophile, I'm very impressed with these.

    They are extremely comfortable, and the sheep leather makes them look and feel great.

    Bowers and Wilkins is all about quality and this headset won`t disappoint you. Sure $300 is a lot to pay, but every song you`ll hear is the way it was meant to be heard,

    Amazing!!!

    • Written by from Huntington Beach

    I have been looking at these headphones for over two years. I first got the Skullcandy Aviators and used those for a few years but I always wanted these but with a $300 dollar price tag, I couldn't justify it. I saw the white P5s in images of the Amsterdam Apple Store opening and immediately wanted them. When my local store got them in stock, I splurged! It is more off-white than true white and I like that. The sound quality is great but I know with time, they will get better. Every genre I have tried so far sounds great. From the Tron Soundtrack, to Passion Pit, to Kanye West, to the Killers, to Peter Gabriel, they are the best! There is little to NO plastic! You really get your money's worth out of these! It has been over a week and they haven't gotten dirty either so if you are worried about that sort of thing, there should be no need to worry!

    The white leather stained from wearing them!!

    • Written by from Princeton

    I purchased the B&W headphones yesterday. I wore them for 2 hours and when i took them off the leather discolored from the sitting on top of my head and ears!! I tried cleaning them and no luck! I would seriously consider buying only the black leather to avoid discoloration. Apart from that everything else as far as sound quality , comfort, etc puts this product near the top of my quality headphones list and I've tried them all!! I would normally have given this product 5 stars but the discoloration is hideous and makes the product look cheap and of poor quality.
