    Bowers & Wilkins P5 Mobile Headphones Review

    Well it's been years since I last replied, but about 2 months ago the Left Channel died! a few years ago I removed the cloth and most of the Gooey broken down adhesive and used them daily, I really enjoyed the Isolation they gave me at work, but now they are garbage! I don't know how to get...

    Bowers & Wilkins P5 Mobile Headphones Review

    I wonder if this was a First Batch problem, who knows, but for such a well crafted pair of Headphones and for the cost it is just terrible!  The glue on mine has not migrated to the outside of the earphones luckily but I have relegated these to my work when they get very little use during the...

    Westone Adventure Series - New Dynamic Driver for rugged activities: Impressions and Discussion

    I found the cable noise to be disappointing!  I wish the remote was located past the intersection of the Y because I use a bit of a twist tie to bring the cable together at the back of my head much like the slider on my UM2s.  I found the cable clip to be useless, but thanks to the twist tie...

    Bowers & Wilkins in-ear headphones = C5

    I'm having trouble with my replacement pair, I've managed to repair a tip as well, they are hard to remove and fragile.  I've pretty much given up on getting a comfortable fit with ANY of the stock tips, I've still got one pair of Complys left, the T400 size and the fit is improved.  I know when...

    Bowers & Wilkins in-ear headphones = C5

    Finally after 3 months of waiting I'm getting my replacement C5s!  Seems they were lost in transit after I shipped them to the Canadian Distributor, I waited and waited, finally e-mailed my original contact person and he sent out a new pair that afternoon! I missed the UPS today so they'll be...

    DACMagic Plus Impressions

    Got one today for a better price, so far I'm liking the sound USB and Toslink, haven't tried any of the USB 1 or 2 settings, I've mostly just used it for movies through my iMac!  Sounds great with my AKGs and Grados!

    DACMagic Plus Impressions

    I am very close to buying a DacMagic Plus!   Right now I'm using a combo of a Firestone basic DAC fubar going into my EC/SS and I mostly use K701s for comfort in long term listening!  I know that the EC/SS is setup to work best with Grados but I don't use them all the time! What I am hoping...

    Bowers & Wilkins in-ear headphones = C5

    I bought it from an Apple Store the day they first hit the shelves, I've still got the receipt, from late summer 2011!   I've contacted B&W, maybe I'll here back from them soon in the new year!

    Bowers & Wilkins in-ear headphones = C5

    Bad picture, old camera, but why would the metal part of the jack suddenly warp like that?

    K701 mod for a guy with a big head?

    One thing you might try is to leave them on a stand or even hanging over a tall book for a while. I found that the rubber band "Relaxes" a bit over time, it still pulls the headband up when I remove them but it doesn't try to pull them up when I'm wearing them. Also the leather headband might...

    The Grado HF2--It's For Real

    I believe you can still order the MS1 with a choice of plug, some people wound up getting jacks that won't fit their iPods without an adapter But when I last ordered my MS1s, the site was clear enough on this. Now the annoying part... If I get these HF2s, I need to sell my MS1, AKG701s and...

    AKG Canada Dealings?

    I sent my K701s to this address for repair, it sounds similar: Soundcraft Canada 9629 Clement St Lasalle, PQ H8R 4B4 I originally asked on the AKG site, they forwarded my e-mail to Montreal and I got a reply the next day!

    K701 thread

    I hadn't used mine since my MS-Pros arrived, but last weekend I thought I'd try them again since I know they would be more comfortable. Well it was not my lucky day since the left channel seems to have died!! I don't know whether it's blown or just disconnected but it's funny, you'd think if...
