Suggestion on P5's or other headphones???

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I want to buy a pair of headphones for use with un-amped devices such as iPod but also amped ones I have at home. I tried de B&W P7 and P5 and I was completely drawn to them. Not only for the design but I really liked the sound. I think the P7 are too expensive but I am still considering buying the P5's but I want to be sure that they are worth what I'm paying. I've also heard about the Denon AH-D340, Sennheiser Momentum, SE 425, PSB M4U and BOSE AE2.
I used to have the Bose oe2 and currently I have some in-ear Klipsch but want on-ear headphones.Also, I don't like the noise cancelling devices.

If you could help me and recommend a good pair of headphones or advice if I should buy the P5's I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you very much

Personally, I dislike the whole B&W line-up, just sounds unnatural and not good for the price to me. What you listen to, what kind of sound do you want from your headphoens?

Don't get the P5, suck it up and save your money for the P7.  I have both and I can tell you that the comfort factor for the P7 is miles ahead of the P5 with decent improvement on sound.

You can try the m4u and momentum at best buy.

my idea of getting you into a twist: try momentum and p7, you'll have a headache :L3000:

I'd pick momentum right away, lol. Just really dislike those B&W models..
