Bowers & Wilkins P7 - over the ear headphones - Page 25

post #361 of 1468

how do these compare to AKG Q701's? thinking about swapping out due to the added portability of the P7 and the closed design so i don't annoy everyone around me

P7's have more bass and more body in the lower mids. Overall they are more fun than the more neutral Q701's, but they're not terribly inaccurate either. Still very well balanced compared to most consumer headphones.

Looking at the NAD and the P7 plots i suspect they are using a capacitor coupled output, and the signal is rolling off due to the headphone impedance. This used to happen in early iPods too.

+1. And that's Beoplay H6?

P7 vs Alpha Dog anyone???

post #366 of 1468
I would expect the alpha dog to sound better, it's a true full size headphone at a higher price point, I would expect it to have a more refined sound...

 Same. Not to mention the fact that the Mad Dogs are already incredible at $300 and could be better than the P7 to some.

... and its balanced, not to mention p.magnetic .lol.

 

Just this second bought one (Alpha Dog). Can't wait to give them a listen.

Go for it... was having trouble parting with the money but Hifiman's video convinced me, even comes with a stand!

I JUST got a job. I won't be able to afford those for a while :triportsad:. I actually have a recommendation thread going, if you might be able to contribute to it. I'm trying to decide which headphone I should get once I accumulate enough funds. You can find it here

What video?
post #373 of 1468

 

Is quite new, 3rd of October... check the pads man!

post #374 of 1468

Sorry... hifiGUY not Hifiman .lol. Would be something else altogether if they had made a video on it, no doubt matching it to the 901 or something.... apologies... is a good video though.

... oh yeah, I got the last pair from Europe btw, Soundconsult were helpful and reserved them for me along with a spare XLR cable.... said he'd have to wait a good while for the next batch to come through... might be better off buying direct from Mrspeakers himself.
