Well...as promised, my B&W P7 mini review and update is now up on my review post on this thread. :smile:

Much appreciated. And well worth the wait. Love the Momentums... but was suspecting the P7s might nudge them out. Done deal for the portables....

 

Now to await the reviews on the LCD-X... hmmmm... should be anytime now.

My updated and final impressions of the Focal Spirit Classic:

As I have been telling people now about the P7 soundstage, it is really something versus the competition but then the price tag stops it from being an instant buy. Not that I need positive confirmation, I am happy going alone if it really comes to that :tongue:

You do seem to have very particular tastes to be fair :smile:

Would P7 be better in terms of tonal balance than momentum? P7($399) momentum($299) is quite a huge gap in the price range. I love HD600 so I am waiting to try out P7 whether the sound qualiy will suit my taste.. Another toy to bring home.

Just doing my part to sabotage any potential hype trains.

 

But seriously, it's main price competition is the B&O H6, which sounds so much more refined.

The P7 isn't bad. I don't hate it. But it doesn't live up to the price tag. 


Although TBH most headphones don't live up to their price tags any more. :deadhorse:

While I did enjoy the B&O H6s, I'd take the P7s over them any day of the week.

It is because younger generation and intended market has smaller ears like teenagers and working professionals, not for some folks who have huge ears, really.

Yes, intended market is smaller ears and if you see teenagers, schoolboy, working class, i live in asia, they have smaller ears, surely can fit if I can.

I think its rather a portability isue also many people dont want to walk around wearing half grapefruits on their heads.

This pretty much nails it - human ears NEVER stop growing until death. 

Check out photos of people from when they were young adults and then compare it to when they were over 60.

The difference will amaze you.

The P7 is one of the most impressive closed can I have heard in a while. Simply staggering value.

Anyone has a HE500 to compare with a M500? 

 

I have one HE500 at home and actually would be buying the M500 as a portable phone during commuting. Thanks

Sorry, but the HE500s are way off topic here. We're seeking portable closed headphones and the best value/sound. The HE500s are big, heavy and open orthos (and not very portable :o).

MH, highly recommend you try the Sony 7520.
