Summary: I don't want the added expense of noise cancelling so I always opt for over the ear headphones to get as much privacy as possible. These B&WP7's are a great way to get incredible sound and as much quiet as you can hope for.
Pros: Quality build, great sound.
Cons: Slightly heavier than others I own but not at all a burden. I would actually prefer slightly larger ear pads.
Summary: The P7's are arguably the best headphones in their price range. Are there better sounding headphones out there? Yes. For under $400? No. Great soundstage, excellent frequency response, and well-balanced sound. Clear highs without being too bright, tight bass without being boomy, and smooth vocals.
Pros: Excellent build quality, leather and metal construction, and ease of swapping cables. Nice travel case, and extra cable. Sound quality that rivals larger head phones. Comfortable for long periods of listening. No batteries needed (no active noise cancelling).
Cons: No active noise cancellation. High price point, not for the budget minded.
Excerpt: Excellent mid and top range reproduction with accurate but not overpowering "booming" base.Top construction with replaceable ear cups and cable.The comfort is good but not quite as soft as Marshall or Bose.The sound quality and clarity outweighs the negative aspects.
Summary: Very nice build quality. Look and feel like a it should for the price of these set of headphones. They fit a little too tight on your head. The sound quality is very smooth, a little lacking in treble detail. I think the sound of these is not up to the price this cost.
Summary: I just started this year listening to your not so average headphones. Five months ago I bought the Sennheiser 558 and really loved the clarity and range. I realized I was missing the low end of the frequency and decided to demo the B&W P5. It was okay but didn't surpassed my 558.
Pros: Clarity and bass frequency. Love the retro style and look. The leather is soft and comfortable to the ears.
Cons: The chord is relatively short. A 6' chord would be a good length. The price tag is expensive. I think if it was between $300-$350, it would be a great buy.
