    best headphones ive ever heard

    • Written by from White Plains

    Everything about these headphones is near perfect. Aside from the fact that they're incredibly comfortable and not overly bulky, the sound quality is simply incredible. no overpowering bass like the incredibly overpriced beats, and a much more well rounded sound than anything from bose. And I really feel like these were built to last, unlike too many products on the market today.

    B&W the best by far

    • Written by from Old Tappan

    High quality construction and sound.. Comfortable and not oversized.. I tried them all and owned more than few these are the best by far.. $300 is expensive but they really are as good as $5000 speakers . I have a pair of B&Os which are good for running etc but do not touch these in terms of quality and sound.... A MacBook Pro , Touch and these and you are good to go

    Wow! Fantastic + Work's with iPad too

    • Written by from Phoenix

    I am not an audiophile but these do sound great to me!

    They look great, feel great, and go from iPhone to iPad wonderfully.

    I watched the most recent Star Trek movie on my iPad last night and was amazed at the quality (AND, I didn't wake the baby even when I had it turned up loud... no complaints from the baby's mom either!!!).

    I love these... I was looking for a good headset for so long and was hesitent to spend the money... but these were worth the price tag.

    Excellent

    • Written by from Birmingham

    A little pricey but equal to others in the category but with much better sound. Clean and crisp and very natural. If you like Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young , you should hear the vocals on these. And on Bach Cello Concertos you can feel the individual strings vibrate. I have had them for a week and can't take them off. My wife feels I am ignoring her so beware these may effect your marriage.

    Great Headphone

    • Written by from Austin

    Classy design with great sound. Great detail in instruments and vocals. Great ear pads with iPhone compatible remote. Also comes with regular cable if you don't want the mic/remote in normal use.

    Solid built, warm and full sound, comfortable fit. Sold my Bose QC3 and got this one...totally satisfied...now I know whey Audiophiles don't prefer Bose.

    Crisp vocals, clean bass, natural sound

    • Written by from Reston

    Its like a concert around your ears. I read reviews about these, was toying with the idea of getting a pair of Denon's or Audio Technica's. Its a good thing I waited. For over the ear cans, they have better quality than more expensive fully enclosed ones. Super comfortable. The memory foam ear pads felt great after 2 hrs of wearing. I listened to everything from a capella to classical piano, violin, gregorian chants, santana, axl rose, metallica and then some. Love it!

    Fantastic quality

    • Written by from Macedon

    Great build quality as well as sound quality. Unlike headphones from it's competitors (eg. Bose), these headphones feel like they cost $300. You definitely get what you pay for. They also come with a very nice, soft travel case.

    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 but expensive

    • Written by from Jersey City

    The sound quality is really good, seems to be a lot more balanced than the Beats and the tone through mid and high are much clearer. Construction is solid and the headphones have a cool retro vibe to them. It took me a couple of times to figure out how to sit them on my ears for best sound quality, but once I did the sound was great. Beats are awesome if you like real condensed solid bass type sound, but if you want to run through the sound spectrum these are a much better option. They're a bit expensive, that and the fact that the headphone cables a little flimsy in feel, stop me giving them a 5. But overall I rate these higher than Beats solo HD and Bose, both of which I've used.

    Headphones all grown up

    • Written by from Castle Rock

    I'm not an audiophile but.... these headphones make my Bose QC3's feel like toys. All the components are solid - no plastic. The fit is comfortable and luxurious. I bought my QC3's to help with noise at work and during travel. They always felt a bit heavy and muddled on bass, and put pressure on my ears with the noise cancellation. The P5's make the sound feel natural and balanced. I'm excited about my music again. Worth every penny.

    No cheap but well worth the price. Indeed, a deal. I'm sure there are better sets out there but at a higher price. I would buy them again at the same price with out hesitating.

    Great, clear and well-balanced sound. Excellent build quality.

    • Written by from Palo Alto

    I purchased the P5s after my Beats by Dre Solos snapped. To be fair, Monster was nice enough to send a free replacement. While I liked the looks and sound of the Beats Solos, I was a little turned off by the fact that they broke so easily. I read so many positive things about the P5s, and after trying them out in the store, I had to have them.

    While the Beats Solos sound very good, I feel that the P5s offer a more balanced, clean and "non-fatiguing" sound. It delivers great sound through all ranges - bass, mids and the highs, so you'll be happy no matter what kind of music you listen to. I listen to everything, from pop, r&b, jazz, classical, hip-hop, instrumental to spoken word (audiobooks and podcasts), and they all sound great.

    I also downloaded some higher-bit (16-bit, Apple Lossless) music from B&W's "Society of Sound" website and the P5s really shine. I wish I could download higher bit songs on iTunes!

    Last but not least, you'll be thrilled with the build quality. Strong metal, fine sheep leather, memory foam padding... They seem durable and definitely make you feel like you got your money's worth.

    Best headphones for $300

    • Written by from West Lafayette

    I own some good headphones and this is definitely my favorite one for now. It's way more comfortable and sounds better than my Grado SR325 or B&O Form 2. Compared to Shure SE530, I prefer the SE530 over this one for listening jazz, but otherwise I prefer the P5.

    I returned my B&O H6's for these. I'm a convert from in-earphones. These have a fantastic sound, beautiful sleek design and fit nicely over the ears.

    300 bucks is worth it!

    • Written by from Norwalk

    I just love this headphones. It just sounds better than bose on-ear headphones. Very warm mid and highs and just the right amount of bass. I have this SRS amplifier that i put in my ipod and it just makes it more great sounding in a way that when you are listening to a concert its like you're there

    Now I enjoy hearing music!

    • Written by from Barcelona

    Before buying this, I had the Apple headphones, for me it was ok. When I was seeing people with the Beats Studio or headphones like that I thought that they were wasting their money. Now I changed my opinion. I get this as a present and now I love hearing music. They sound amazing and their design is brilliant. Now I can't stop hearing music. The only thing I want for next generation P5, I think it will be a Wirelless headphone, that will be the best.

    Great headphones - cheap nasty cable

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Like a couple of other reviewers here, I love these headphones but don't understand why B&W would attach such a cheap, flimsy cable to it. I've owned my P5s for one year, and I'm on my 3rd cable already.

    Flat response - great sounds and retro style

    • Written by from Boca Raton

    First off I am not an over the ear headphone guy but I wanted something for work. The sound is flat and very realistic. If you are a base head forget it but for sure listing these are great.
