    miles ahead of other headphones

    • Written by from Oakville

    these headphones literally improve the quality of my life haha.
    perfectly balanced, clear sound; .... unlike Dre Beats which overemphasize bass/treble... or Bose which just blows.. (except lacks active noise cancelling).
    very comfortable and classy looking!!!
    I would not look any further :)

    Absolutely the best!

    • Written by from SUDBURY

    This is not an impulsive review. I have now owned these for 2 yrs and I love them more and more as time goes by. If you love all kinds of music these are for you. Other headphones have too much bass, others sound too bright. These are just so natural and gorgeous in their sound reproduction. Others sound great in the store but they get very tiresome when you listen for any extended time. The more I listen to these, the more I can't wait to put them on. I never get tired of listening to them. They are comfortable and durable. When I think of how much joy I have gotten out of them and for how long, the price is a bargain. Songs I have listened to hundreds of times, I still appreciate new sounds and textures. I have owned Bose, Sony, Sennheiser, Klipsch, Audio Technical, Shure. These are my favorite.

    Craptastic

    • Written by from New York

    I'm on my 4th pair of these pricey headphones--the left ear cup dies after a few months of use. I baby these things and only use them at my desk. Bowers & Wilkins certainly honors their warranty, but this is ridiculous.

    Most comfortable headphone I've ever owned

    Comfort, quality and great sound. I After five decades of owning headphones that fit poorly I found something I could wear all day without sacrificing audio quality.

    Good product, horrible tech support.

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I've owned my pair of P5s for just over a year now. They sound (or sounded) great. Unexpectedly, the left earpiece stopped working last week. Good luck trying to get in touch with B&W for warranty support - they have been unresponsive to my emails for 3 days and their phone system has transfered me to a dead line all the times I have called. This is not the level of support I would expect from such a premium product.

    Best of the lot

    • Written by from LAS VEGAS

    After utilizing ten different headphones over the past eight years (from A-Z) the P5s are absolutely the best.

    Don't Buy if You Wear Glasses

    • Written by from Marblehead

    I loved these. The style is exceptional, and I'm not big on form. The sound is outstanding. They were just too uncomfortable. After two hours, they starated to hurt. After four hours, my jaws and teeth hurt. I had to return them. They are no so nice, that if I were a candidate for Lasik, the surgery would be worth it just to be able to wear these. I would have kept them longer to try to break them in, but my state had a tax holiday, forcing a 24 hour decision.

    Concert for One

    • Written by from Bellevue

    Overall, this is just one amazing set of headphones. I highly reccomend them!

    Pros
    -Amazing sound quality. It performs si well amongst a variety of genres, picking up the subtle nuances in each track like its no big deal.
    -Relatively good comfort, but for me it took a little adjustment. For those of you with bigger heads, I reccomend stretching out the headband for a couple nights. It makes it much, much more comfortable.
    Cons
    -Not much at all actually. I wish blocked out a litle more sound, but for its class (as a noise-isolating headphone), it does a decent job. However, my P5's arent something I'd wear in a plane ride.

    Great Sound, but a little too delicate

    • Written by from montreal

    pros: I have owned these headphones for almost 3 years. The sound quality is actually awesome and although they may not have booming bass, they definitely tear the beats by dre a new one in every other department. These headphones also happen to be very good looking and are extremely comfortable when worn in short to medium spurts.

    Cons: I've owned these headphones for 3 years, but am actually on my third pair and have had to replace the headphone jack on countless occasions, they are just too delicate for everyday use. B and W must be aware of the issue, cause when you buy these suckers they actually come with an extra wire! Also the headphones tend to fit a little too snugly for my liking (i have a regular sized head) and can be a little uncomfortable when worn for very long periods. Ordering spare wires for these things has proven to be pretty complicated and the customer support from b and w is almost non existant.

    AMAZING

    • Written by from CLECKHEATON

    Look great and no plastic, durable. only made of aluminium and leather. it gets better. these beauties sound amazing from the highs, midds and the lows are perfect. And the cable can be changed if u ever need to but stick with this one, got iPod remote and mic. really comfortable. beats are no where near as good as they are true perfection. when i plug them into my mac, the sound really comes out and i am blown away, much louder. a protective case is included and it really is a great case. don't buy a pair of beats, get a pair of true amazing sound quality headphones. Worth every penny

    The Best Headphones, Period.

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    These are the best. The creme de la creme. The cream of the crop. The best of breed. As a former Apple employee, I can only recommend these if you have the money. They are simple the best. They provide the cleanest, distortion free, natural sound available for a headphone. Bose & Dre are simply too bass-y. If you have the money, they are a MUST BUY

    Stunning

    • Written by from Richmond Hill

    The performance is great. Not one piece of plastic just made it the most stylish headphones yet. One thing though is that the plug is easily breakable, but overall just a stunning pair of headphones.

    The search is over

    • Written by from Salt lake city

    The second you put on these headphones you know theyr'e something special before even turning them on. Unbelievably comfortable, even for long periods of time. The passive noise cancellation is actually very impressive and ambient noises are blocked incredibly well. Even on an airplane they are sufficiently quiet. As far as sound quality....the range is unmatched. Highs, lows, mids.... everything is crystal clear and incredibly balanced. The best part is, the headphones sound better and better the more you listen to them. I'd say it takes about 200+ hours of listening for them to really hit their stride. Bottom line, if you are willing to splurge, buy these headphones! Worth every cent.
    And the best part is, the customer support/warranty department is awesome. I have broken the ipod controller cord twice in the last year, and after emailing techsupport @ bwgroupusa.com about the issue I simply provided my serial number and a little more info and within 5 days, both times, I had a brand new cord on my doorstep from the company, FOR FREE. (these replacement cords aren't cheap) So not only can I vouch for how unreal these headphones sound, I can also vouch for their awesome support. BUY THESE HEADPHONES!!!

    Amazing sound but last 6 months max

    • Written by from Manchester

    I bought these last september, it is now march and now my second pair have broken, same problem both time, left speaker stops working, although the remote still works, you could say use the replacement cable but why pay £250 to have a pair of headphone (in this case for 7 weeks) for them to break. My £20 sony in-ear still work great, sound is nothing in comparison, but for the cash i question the value if they break after 7 weeks? No water damage, no loud levels, barely used!

    Absolutely Stunning

    • Written by from Yorba Linda

    When I purchased the Bowers and Wilkins P5's I knew they would not disappoint. These are by far the best pair of headphones I have even owned or seen. The build quality is unheard of these days, all metal and leather. The sound is absolutely beautiful. There is no obnoxious bass, everything is perfectly balanced. These headphones are also extremely comfortable to wear, with their plush earpads with memory foam. The case that is included with the P5's is very stylish, and has outstanding build quality. By far the best purchase I have made in a long time! I definitely recommend these to anyone who likes amazing sound. You will be satisfied with the build quality and sound! Thank you Bowers and Wilkins for making such an outstanding product.

    Brilliant sound, but very uncomfortable

    • Written by from Brasov

    I love the sound of these headphones. It's a joy to just close your eyes and get lost in the music. Also, they look amazing. These are the most stylish headphones I have ever seen.

    But.. they get really uncomfortable after just a couple of hours. It broke my heart, but I had to return them. They are beautiful, the sound is wonderful, but they are impossible to wear for more than an hour or so.
