Summary: That's right, I mentioned build quality as a "pro" 5 times. These things are sexy.
Until the P7's, I went back and forth between Senn Momentums and Beyer DT770Pro-80's. The reason I went back and forth so much is because they both had features I liked, but were lacking in other areas. They are basically polar opposite in many areas. In my quest to find the medium between them, I narrowed it down to a few sets, including the P7's.
Pros: Build quality, looks, build quality, refined/controlled bass, build quality, great mids/vocals, build quality, not too harsh, and build quality
Cons: can feel a bit heavy, clamping is pretty tight when new, head band numbs my bald head without periodic breaks
Summary: I absolutely love the P7's. The sound so much better and are much more comfortable than the P5's. I can wear them for hours in total comfort. The luxurious leather carrying case is elegant. They are worth every penny!
Pros: Excellent sound quality and extremely comfortable to wear. The luxurious leather case.
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 been listening to my new P7s for about a month now. I wanted a closed ear setup as I listen in bed and don't want sound leakage. The build quality and materials are top notch. They fit me well (I'd say I'm average size) and are very comfortable The smell of the high leather is luxurious like getting in my Audi with Nappa leather :) I really enjoy the sound quality and imaging these provide.
Pros: Sound quality. Build and materials are luxurious.
Cons: Premium price for premium quality. Best suited to in-home use.
Summary: I have a large collection of headphones. Some are great and some not so much. I have never until now found the headphones that gave me the sound I was looking for. First of all let me say the P7s seem very accurate. No listening fatigue here. I am having a great time identifing all of the instruments in the mix.
Pros: Great sound, very comfortable, no listening fatigue
