    Senn HD630vb vs B&W P7?

    Hey guys,    I work in an open office so I have to use closed cans to jam out. I always liked the sound of open Sennheisers but when it came to M2 the sound was ok but not wonderful. They were also tiny on my ears. The P7's sound awesome to me, but aren't the most comfortable things in the...

    Looking for that perfect pair

    Hi guys, I'm currently looking for a pair of headphone that looks good, light/compact and sounds great.   The Bowers & Wilkins P5 was my go to headphone for almost 2 years until I recently purchased the Denon D7100. While the 7100 sounds absolutely amazing off the iPhone 6, it's just too dam...

    [Review] Bowers & Wilkins P7, a highly musical closed portable option

      Pros: Sturdy build, removable pads, removable cable, inline mic, controlled bass, lively upper mids, clean sound, spacious sound for a closed headphone, forgiving of mediocre recording. Cons: Proprietary cable and pads, cable feels cheap, sub-bass is inconsistent, mid-blass bleeds. Style...

    Shure SE535 vs Bowers & Wilkins P7

    I'm not a bass-head by any means so detail is a priority for me. The fact that the se535 are more portable is a big bonus for me but also don't want to sacrifice sound quality. Also, since I will be listening in places like the library I really don't want any sound leakage.    Thanks

    Much difference in high end CIEMs to NAD Viso HP50/ B&W P7s/ B&O H6/ Focal Spirit Pro?

    I'm trying to get my portable setup going, and from my research I think I have a decent understanding of how cans like the Viso HP50s, P7s, Momentums, H6s all relate to each other, and also a rough idea of how the JH13s, JH16s, K10s, Roxannes all supposedly relate to each other. Where I am...

    Closed headphones vs IEM?

    Are IEM better than closed headphones for portable music for the same price? (If we take a B&W P7 against a Shure SE535 / Westone 4R for example which are both mobile headphones / earphones around the same price)

    B&W C5 + Comply TX-400 = Compliment to P7's I have been looking for

    So I bought a pair of C5's at the beginning of my search, and loved the sound but they were uncomfortable and difficult to get situated right.  A short time after returning them I tried the P7's and fell in love.  I've been using the P7's ever since and love them, but have been looking for a...

    Good Replacements for NAD Viso HP50 with stronger bass?

    I have the NAD Viso HP50 and think they are excellent for the price. They are very clear, smooth, ok comfort, balanced, and have a good sized soundstage for a closed can. However, I hate the way they look on my head in public and wish they had some more bass slam. So I'm looking for a closed...

    Portable headphone or IEM similar to Q701?

    At home I use Q701's at my computer (running to a Xonar STX). I'd like to get a set of portable headphones or IEMs for work that have a similar sound. I work in an office with low cube walls, so full headphones are out because I don't want to appear "unapproachable". I'm not looking for sound...

    Philips Fidelio X1 vs Bowers Wilkins P7

    I don't have the ability to test the Philips Fidelio X1. I'm looking at these two as a HP for mainly home use with some travel use (not so much using on a plane/car, rather a over ear that doesn't require a full amp rig to get enjoyment. Most of the listening will be Concert DVDs, Netflix...

    Beats Solo 2: Is the Head-Fi community willing to give these a fair chance?

    Unlike past Beats releases these have a pretty good build and a good sound for a portable pair of headphones. (Subjective) Many comments on YouTube and other places on-line are quick to dismiss them based on the brand name. So many negative comments were even made when reviewers had...

    B&W P7 with standalone headphone amp and it's 22 ohms and 50mW of max input power

    B&W P7 has written in the spec that it can handle 50mW of input power. Impedance of P7 is 22 ohms.   Does it mean it can be burned with headphone amp like Luxman p-200 which can give 727 mW?  I guess at max level of volume amp can do this? Which means in normal volume it will be ok?
