Summary: For some reason these reminded me of my DT990s when I put them on in terms of sound signature, not as sparkly treble (which is sorta sibilant on the DT990s) with a nice low end. Mids are a tad recessed I wouldn't say it really takes away from it though. The earpads seem like a perfect size and fit. Originally I didn't like the style, but it grew on me much like how the HD598s, and HD650 looked strange to me at first.
Pros: Build quality, Present bass, Comfortable, Portable, Nice treble sparkle, Good soundstage for a small can
Cons: Pricey compared to a lot of other models, style is love or hate, mids are slightly lacking.
Summary: These have been a real dream to listen to. They have a really good range of sound not artificial sounding at all. They have have as a matter fact excellent tremble. They don't pull the mids to upfront they throw them a little bit in the background for a more natural approach. Best way to explain this would be if you were in a concert you wouldn't be on stage in front of the singer or hearing primarily only their voice and having their instruments in the background.
Pros: Clear, spacious, very accurate bass does not distort Great construction with classy look of their own
Cons: A bit pricey ear pad replacements a little pricey as well
Summary: I'd just like to mention that this is my first review for headphones (or anything musical) and probably isn't going to be the best thing you've ever read. Still getting used to putting what I hear into text so the sound section might be a bit shorter than expected too.
Initial impressions and build quality:
The box itself seemed very well made, thick cardboard and much larger than the headphones themselves which is usually an indicator that the headphones would be...
Pros: Refined sound, well extended treble, nice punchy bass, fantastic build quality, great isolation, gorgeous looks, folds into a rather compact shape
Cons: Sound a bit boomy on first impression, initially not the best comfort
Summary: I've owned Bose QC's and Beats and these offer a better, more detailed, richer sound. For not being "noise canceling" headphones they sure do cancel a great deal of noise. They're more comfortable than any set of headphones I've ever owned. The build quality and durability are the best I've owned as well. Can't think of any drawbacks whatsoever. As usual the service from Crutchfield was stellar.
Summary: Great sound, we'll worth the money. First used for a 9-hour flight to Honolulu. Found them to be comfortable throughout the flight. Noise cancellation is good with the over the ear fit. They're not active noise cancellation headphones so don't expect them to be; however, they do quite well. Given the sound quality, comfort, and build quality, I prefer the P7s over my Bose QC- IIIs...Nuff said!
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: This is my first headphone purchase. I wanted to use these with my iPhone and iPad as well as with my integrated amp and DAC. I listened to a $300 pair of Beats and Bose noise canceling headphones here in Peoria but wasn't impressed with either. I love the B&W P7's. They are closed back design which gives excellent noise isolation. They are very light weight and extremely comfortable right out of the box. They are very well made and look luxurious.
Pros: Sound stage, quality, comfort and convenience. Perfect for use with mobile devices. Audiophile quality with an integrated amp/DAC
