Bowers and Wilkins P5

post #1 of 4

I've heard one person say these have noise transfer when you move around in them, I forget what the term for this, where the cable rubs and it's transferred to the listener. Can anyone comment on this? I've only heard this from one person, being a "portable" hp I would find this kind off hard to believe but if it is true it would def eliminate them for me.

I used my P5s every day on a 90min each way bus->subway->walk commute, and I don't recall ever noticing any noise from cable rubbing.  As far as I'm concerned, they're wonderful portable headphones.  I now have the P7s, and while they do sound better than the P5s, I find that they don't isolate quite so well, and of course they're more bulky.  I may go back to using the P5s for the commute.

Hey thanks for the great response. I, too, have been interested in the p7 but they seem like they may be slightly bigger than what I wasn't in a portable headphone...although I love the way they look and sound

I don't hear cable noise on my P5 either. In fact, other than IEMs, I can't remember ever hearing cable noise from any headphone.
