    Worth every penny

    • Written by from Bexley

    I've had mine for more than a year, and it still works as if it was new.

    Excellent sound quality, comfortable fit, sleek and beautiful design, and above all, highly-reliable.

    Sidenote: If the B&W C5 ear-buds ever crossed your mind, I highly suggest you don't buy them--they break too easily. I shouldn't be writing this in here, but I can't emphasize enough how unreliable they are. I've had both products, and the P5's have been, undeniably, more reliable.

    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.

    Classy Tunes

    • Written by from HONOLULU

    The new headphones are very comfortable and light.
    Music is clear as a bell. Couldn't ask for a
    more beautiful way to relax and enjoy music.
    They are worth every penny. Feels like riding in a Rolls if
    you close your eyes and sit in a big comfy
    leather wing back chair.

    Amazing Sound!

    • Written by from St. Louis

    Debated between these and the Bose QC15 noise canceling headphones. Picked these due to the fact that the QC15s need a battery to work. So happy I picked these! The sound quality is great. The biggest surprise to me is how well the noise isolation works. When you put these headphones on, they only slightly muffle background noise. However, when you click the play button, almost all background noise is eliminated! Only downside to these is the connector is not "L" shaped, so it sticks out of the headphone jack further. Not a deal breaker, but something to be aware of.

    Wow! TheP5s are a concert for one that's truly worth the price of admit

    • Written by from PITTSBURGH

    Excellent audio performance. Extremely comfortable. Handsome design and carrying case. Relatively lightweight. Equipped with iPhone/iPod in-line remote control.

    The super-thin black cable integrates iPhone/iPod controls. If you don't want the controls, that portion of the cable is easily removable and can be replaced with the plain old cable that comes bundled with the headphones. A good-looking carrying case with a black, silken finish and a quilted surface houses the headphones, the cables, and a ¼-inch adapter.

    My only complaint with the design is, despite B & W's claim that the P5 is "noise isolating," the headphones offer no noise cancellation. Sure, there's a little muffling of ambient sound because you're placing the earpads on your ears, but virtually every headphone pair on earth offers this, and it's not very significant. The company should rethink this claim.

    Top Headphones

    • Written by from Racine

    It may seem expensive priced at $299.95, but it's worth it. Not only is it durable with the leather and metal, it's everything they say it is. The sound isolation is nice as well, you don't pay attention to the outside world, but it's still there way in the background. The sound quailty is great, when I close my eyes I feel like I'm at a concert. Now I'm no expert with headphones, knowing if the highs, mids and lows are good, but compared to listening to other headphones it's no match. The sound stays in your ears, I have the volume up only 1/3 and it's loud enough. It doesn't leak, so people wont scream at you to turn it down. If you have the money spend it on them, if you want to get the P3's, don't. It's worth the extra hundred to get it out of metal so it'll last longer.

    Greatest headphones I've owned.

    • Written by from Brookshire

    I've used tons of headphones being a sound engineer. These are not the best I've ever heard, but they are by far the best I've ever owned. I've used them for hours with no discomfort and they offer a totally true to source sound. I love these things.

    • 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.

    Very competitive advantage to others

    • Written by from Victoria

    I have to say that P5 is the best MOBILE headphones that I have ever owned.
    I have owned the Beats_Studio headphones and they are not comparable to P5 at any stage (I know someone would argue me this with the heavy bass from the Beats).
    I also have the V-moda Crossfade LP and Boss QC15.
    First, the sound on P5 is just beautiful and clear. It is crystal clear especially when the audio files are compressed above 256kbps (mine are all 320kbps).
    Second, the weight is just perfect and it does not require a battery. On the other hand, Beats-Studio and Boss QC15 are a little bit heavier than the P5, especially the Beats.
    Third, the craftsman, it is made of Calf. leather and metal. Also, it is easy to replace the cable and the ear cups.
    Last but not the least, the brand, it is a legendary brand in making hi-end hi-fi audio boxes. I don't need to say much about the brand b/c it's out there, you can google it.
    The only disadvantage that P5 has, if I must pick up some cons, is the level of noise-cancelation. P5 is not doing the same function very well as Boss QC15 does, but the level of noise P5 cancels is quite sufficient.
    All in all, I am very pleased of the purchase, and in fact, I did do a lot of research on the P5 before I purchased, including the experiment of owning the other three headphones, I just have to say that P5 is the best MOBILE headphones out there.

    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

    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.

    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.
