I'm a fan of B&Ws speakers and actually own a pair of low end bookshelf 685's but I never expected to prefer the P5's over a number of my other cans (Grado RS1 / AKG k701 / and Denon D5000).
I'm not enough of an audiophile to give a detailed review, and am wondering if I'm just biased to something in the B&W sound, as if their engineers could somehow capture the sound of their speakers in headphones the first go round. These P5 really hit the sweet spot for me. I listen to near every genre of music and there's nothing that doesn't sound terrific (strange though they aren't so great on movies).
Am I just biased to B&W or are others enjoying these cans as much as I am? BTW so much for cables and SQ for me because the cable on the P5 is this thin little thing. Also, the comfort is better than my other headphones and unlike the others I can actually bob my head without any fear of the phones coming off. These things are damn near perfect to me. Apologies in advance if this sentiment is long redundant on these boards.
