How To Tell B&W P5 Knock-offs?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi there, 

 

I recently bought a pair of B&W P5 to use with my phone/when I'm out and about. The price was $210 and I got it used off of ebay. I'm hoping you guys can provide a few pointers, so that I can check to make sure these headphones are not knock-offs. 

 

Also, on another note, wondering if anyone knows if B&W is planing on doing a V2 of this?

 

Thanks!

I ended up selling mine for $220 CDN used. Sound is a bit wonky.
I really doubt people would make fakes considering it's all real leather and metal.

Good point! Thanks!

 

I'm trying to decide if I should give these headphones to my friend as a graduation gift. Any indication if there's going to be a refresh  V2 on these? If new versions re coming out in the next year or so, I'm planning on giving these to my friend and waiting for the new ones. 

 

Best,
