Don't Bother

  • Summary: Avoid Sarana International LTD and these headphones, mine developed a fault in the left ear bud after 6 months and trying to get them repaired or replaced was a waste of time

Truly amazing sound, no question about that

Andrew B., Amazon
26 August 2014
  • Summary: Truly amazing sound, no question about that...... BUT be advised.. if you have an iPhone 5s, the volume and mic control on the wire isn't compatible.... If your thinking of upgrading to an iPhone 6 at a later date, it could be the same... who knows... I'm waiting for B&W to bring the next ones out

Very poor quality cable - only lasts a few months before needing a replacement

J1mmy, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had to send my pairs back 4 times over the course of 18 months with the same fault each time - the wire appears to degrade and the sound starts cutting out in one or both ears.

The worst headphones I have ever had. Avoid.

Mr. A. HILL, Amazon
6 February 2014
  • Summary: I have had these for nearly a year now and they sit in the bottom of my draw and will never be used again. Firstly the good bit, they did sound reasonably nice when used however I would not recommend them as being amazing and they are expensive. The bad bits.

Very dissapointing.

Martin Zen, Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: I'm a fan of Bowers & Wilkins. I like their P5 headphones and I'm delighted with their A5 wireless system. So when I had to replace my Klipsch in ear headphones I thought I'd give these a go. While they look stunning and seem well built, they just don't fit my ears well.

Flawed

David Charles Clark, Amazon
18 August 2013
  • Summary: The sound on these headphones is pretty good, as you would expect from B&W at this price. However, after reading other reviews here, I have decided to warn other potential purchasers that a few of us seem to had an identical problem with the left channel, it just cuts out and then fails altogether.

Overpriced and prone to malfunction

Jon, Amazon
15 August 2013
  • Summary: Cannot be more disappointed with these headphones and with B&W and the third party Amazon reseller. After less than six months the left channel failed - Google this many others have encountered the same issue.

Uncomfortable, low quality sound, poorly made

M. S. Huniewicz, Amazon
1 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought these earphones having trusted the brand and Amazon reviews. Unfortunately, immediately they turned out to be a major disappointment - they didn't fit comfortably in my ears, and the sound quality was disappointing considering how much they cost.

User Review

Thomas D. Tucker, Cnet.co.uk
29 July 2013
  • Summary: These headphones have amazing sound and very full base. Further, they're very comfortable and stay put in your ears, unlike some others that I've tried that fall out constantly. The problem is, they wear out, FAST. I have now purchased 3 pair of these headphones within the last 2 years.
  • Pros: Sound
  • Cons: Wear out fast
