    Bowers & Wilkins P5 Mobile Headphones Review

      To be fair, my P5s technically still work. They just gunk up my hair every on occasion :-\     I agree, ViolinsNVolta. It's unbelievable. Especially for the price, which is quite a bit (yes, I know there are cans that cost more than $300). Also, I agree that the 598s are excellent and...

    Bowers & Wilkins P5 Mobile Headphones Review

    My P5s are the same way. Slimy and gross. I think the adhesive that bonds the cloth to the metal melts, but it's strange that it doesn't solidify again.

    Buyer's remorse ... Did I just waste my money? Note4/SE-535's/FiiO E12A

    I don't have experience with the GN4. That being said, I ran the e12A via ho on my iphone 6 using shure 846s as the iem. It was noticeably better. The imaging was superior, the bass was prominent but didn't intrude on the mids, there was virtually no hiss, and it made the overall sound a bit...
