Second post so go easy on the newb, only just came accross head-fi.org but I've got to say I'm loving reading the forums.
So last month I went out and bought the B&W P5's partly down to them being so god damn sexy, but after a week I just didn't think they gave me what I needed sonically from my earphones. Having returned them I noticed the P3's were coming out and What Hi-Fi gave them the most stonking review so I was litterally waiting on the UK June 18th release date.
Then I stumbled accross the posts on the Sennheiser HD25-1 II's which really had me wondering if they were right for me. However I travel on business a lot (planes) so I would only be listening to my iPhone 4S, and I really wanted a phone cable for taking calls on the go. So along come the Amperiors (what is with that name btw!), and whoa I think they might actually what I've been looking for. I have checked out Tyll's review and videos at Innerfidelity along with some of the CES 2012 and I'm pretty much sold.
However tinyman392's review on this thread has me really thinking. My biggest issue is...
I reckon the Amperiors might well sound better
The B&W's wipe the floor on looks
£80 difference in price!!!
I'm going to go test the P3's when they come out, but was wondering if you can justify the lesser styling and bigger price tag for a noticeably better sound!!
