Just curious, what source were you using with them? I find mine to be very good at staying true to the source whether I use my Asus Xonar D2/PM sound card or my Fiio X3 audio player. They both have different characteristics in sound and in my opinion the P5's do an wonderful job at conveying differences in the source component.

That bad huh. Almost bought one myself. Too bad there's not much options for aftermarket IEM cables with mic/remote option with good sound and build quality

The cable itself was bad, the service/turnaround time was worse. I don't understand how you can charge that much and give that little. Not one, but TWO cables. I picked up the Silver Dragon for the ASG2 recently. Much better...geez...even the Westone Epic cable did a nice job.

Bummer. Yeah I read about the horrible service for international customers. 

Wish more aftermarket cable makers would start including the mic/remote option in their offers.

I'm not sure about the whole international shpeal...other intl companies most likely do a better job considering. However, I think for what it's worth, Lune Cables (& Co.)  are sub-par for the audiophilic buyer. I buy from domestic (USA) due to the fact that service is almost always more responsive and in general a much easier process.

As of right now, my Bowers and Wilkins P5's have to be RMA'ed. After about 7 months of daily (yet careful) use, the right earpiece now has developed a short in the cable that runs through the headband. Pretty pissed off to have paid $300.00 plus taxes for it to not even last a year. Oh well.

 

We shall see what I get back once the RMA process has started since they released the P5 Series 2 recently. I will wait and see what I need to send B&W in three days time when they will hopefully get back to me.
