Summary: Great looking headset, buidl quality is unmatched. Decent sound isolation. Nice punchy bass, with clear slightly recessed mids, and slightly rolled off treble. Great for most portable applications and some moderately serious listening sessions.
Summary: These are not the cheapest headphones. And yes, part of that price does go toward the B&W name. But B&W has created a name for itself for a reason. These headphones are superbly constructed. Not a hint of plastic. Soft sheep's leather on the ear pads and headbands. Sleek metal frame.

Summary: i love how these headphones sound. but i'm not crazy about how they fit me and they are heavy and hot! they cannot be worn during activity (except walking or something that keeps you erect only, no bending over!) and they are not as portable as they look.

Summary: As a self-proclaimed 'audiophile', I have long been a fan of Bowers and Wilkins, though have been - like many others, I guess - somewhat dissuaded by their recent forays into affordable 'popular' and fashionable gear.
Summary: Right away review: If you have the money and are in the market for great headphones, get them. Prettier review: I've been flirting with the idea of buying these headphones for a year. I have not regretted buying them.
Summary: When you step up to the elite level headphones, it usually comes down to style and whatever nuances that each offers that appeals to YOU. My concern was that Future Shop only had 3 pairs of headphones on demo, so I actually had to try them out at a competitor's display demo, then got FS to beat the...
Summary: Quick review... Great sound, comfortable, love the design. Had issues with the plug on an Air Canada flight (Airbus 321) where it was too small to make proper contact. Either one channel only, or garbled voice tracks with excellent music/effects.
