      Pure Luxury & Great Sound!

      You don't have to be an audiophile to enjoy these high end, over the ears, headphones, but if you are an audiophile your going to enjoy these portables. I purch You don't have to be an audiophile to enjoy these high end, over the ears, headphones, but if you are an audiophile your going to enjoy these portables. I purchased mine at my local Apple Store a week ago have have been enjoying them ever since. After a few hours of break-in they sound even better. The leather ear cups are very comfortable, people that have medium-large ears might want to try them on to make sure your ears fit comfortably in the ear cups. I own the B&W P5 headphones and can attest that the P7 beats them for sound and comfort. However, that is at the expense of portability due to the larger size of the P7 when compared to the P3 and P5. B&W supplies a very nice case in which to transport these beauties in. The P7 works great with my iPhone 5 and iPad2. They don't need a separate headphone amplifier or DAC. But the are versatile as they scale up in sound when I put them to use with me desktop headphone amplifier and DAC (with an iMac as the sound source). I have not switched out the iPhone cable to the straight cable for theses sessions. A purist would, so it is nice that B&W supplies a second cable. Over on Head-Fi (a headphone enthusiast site) there are a lot of comparisons to the Sennheiser Momentum and a few other portables. The comments and reviews there are positive. The only con for these headphones are the cost. However, they are worth it if you enjoy beautifully made headphones that sound great.

      Started with Beats headphones and ended up here with these amazing P7's!

I love these headphones. Physical appearance: I know this is subjective. I'm a 27 year old guy. I feel like they are not exactly marketed towards my demographic but someone in their 40's. The quality is excellent though. The leather is high quality and they leave me feeling like they will last for several years. Feel: Wearing them is really interesting. As I looked at them, I thought that there was no way that they could feel comfortable. Wow was I wrong. The ear cushions fit perfect. My ears don't touch inside of the ear cups and overall they feel light while wearing. I think because they are new they are still kind of squeezing my head a little. Sounds: You seriously need to experience this for yourself with a lossless music file. I can't even touch my other headphones now. Some of the ones that I tried and felt that were inferior were as follows: PSB M4U 2, Bose QC 15, V Moda M100, and Denon 600. Also worth noting that the sound isolation is very good. Price point: I feel that these sit right around where they belong. Overall Impression: I think these things are great. I'm definitely a B&W fan now. Lol, never thought I'd say that. Try these things, you won't regret it.

      Excellent

      The best can headphones I have ever owned. Beats 'Beats', Senn's, Bose, etc. They even trump the p5 and p3s (although the c5s are wonderful for what they are) The best can headphones I have ever owned.

      I love these headphones I listened to all of them at the Apple store winner

      I have owned these headphones for about 6 months now and I must say out of all the headphones at the Apple store these are the best sounding ones there hands do I have owned these headphones for about 6 months now and I must say out of all the headphones at the Apple store these are the best sounding ones there hands down, the carrying case is perfect for regular every day travel's and it doesnt give off to much Bass like the Dr Dre by Beats ones do which is so annoying especially when i use these headphones for mixing a lot of times.

Let's keep it simple... Pros: - Good natural, warm and detailed sound with good bass - Lovely solid and good quality durable materials Cons: - Hot and steamy ear cups after a short while of listening - Heavy on the head - Terrible Case. It's like squeezing a months worth of washing into a washing machine. - Headphone jack is poorly designed, sometimes causing me to lose connection to my device because of it's nature 180 degree angle - Poor isolation

      Love them and hate them but love them I must!

They look and feel purely awesome in your hands but another story on your head for an extended period. They sound great but had a pair of old sennheiser that I bought in 2009 through Amazon for less than $100 (don't even know the name of the model) but they are so cheaply made the ear pads have come loose and the fake leather on the padding has been shedding its skin. Finally got my wife to allow myself a nice pair. Wanted so much to prove to my wife how superior the sound quality of these p7 were to my old no name headphone - have not let her compare them in fear she would never let me forget this purchase. In any case I am listening to them everyday since I've purchased them 2 weeks ago and trying to overcome their uncomfortable bordering on painful pressure - hope all the reviews are genuine reviews that they do break in (some of them even say these are comfortable?!?!). Another thing the iphone controller isn't even half as well made as the iphone inear controller, the feedback is horrible as the hinge for the volume controls are on the outside and not sure if all of them are this way but my volume down is so much harder to push and sense the feedback than the +. But love the feel and looks of p7 and will definitely use them for many years to come - the sound quality is good but not noticeably different from my old pairs (just to make sure I've been listening to flac).

    • How are the p7 different from the p5

      Answer

      Whole order of magnitude different experience. P5s sound good and are quite comfortable - much mor Whole order of magnitude different experience. P5s sound good and are quite comfortable - much more so than I think they look as the leather is very accommodating on the ear. However, having been back and forth between these two, I can tell you that the P7 is a much more involving experience with not just a broader frequency range - warm deep bass, but in keeping with the music, not overdriven, and yet the sound stage for the higher frequencies is simply delightful and seems to offer better separation and clarity that the P5. It's for sure not just about over vs on-ear...
