Countless hours of research, reading pros and cons, I found this P5W, new, open box but very good price.
The headphones came yesterday and I've been using them with my iPad Air 2 (Bluetooth 4.2) and lossless AAC tracks.
Here are my thoughts:
1/ Apt-x low latency bluetooth transmitter: bought one of the best on Amazon and returned immediately, sound was worse than straight out from Ipad.
2/ Music app on Ipad is okay but nowhere near a third party app. I'm using Boom.
P5W with Boom EQ app
+ Sound quality: CD quality: no but close. For wireless headphones, I believe this is as good as I can get for less than $400. Vocal and mid-range are nice.
+ Noise cancelling: Passive noise cancelling but good enough for commuting.
+ Comfort: for on-ear headphones, these are the best. On-ears are always less comfy than over-ears, everyone knows that.
+ Bluetooth connection: Some people complain about the connection but I find it good, on train this morning for 45 minutes packed with people, loud and clear, not disconnection
+ Ease of use: up, down, pause/play, turn on/off and pair. How easy is that? :)
+ Bass: It's good in most songs but sometimes I find lower bass rolling on for a bit too long. Not sure if I use the right terminology here
+ Sound stage: given they are on-ear, don't expect much but I wish soundstage could be wider.
That's it. I'm happy with this purchase and can see myself using them for a long time :)
After about 3 weeks of usage, I am returning these amazingly crafted cans. I am however very disappointed and sad about this return. I have been dreaming of buying these headphones since a few years now, and after having tried them in a few different places I realised they are not made for me. Here’s why?
-I think I may have a defective headphones: sound is extremely low. Around 25% less then when wired. I cannot listen to them in subways as they simply don’t play loud enough. Since I bought them especially for commuting it’s very not an ideal for me.
-battery only charges to 90% even though i let them charge way more then needed (a full night)
-they do not auto reconnect to the only paired iPhone. Never. Very annoying to always have to in settings (especially since they goes in sleep mode after only 10 minutes of non usage. So every time you need to manually connect the headphones) that’s a real deal breaker ...(another)
-the third deal breaker, which is the major one, is the comfort. The headphones apply such a big clamping force on the ear that they are impossible for me to keep them longer than 45/60 minutes. After it’s just too painful for me.
Build quality is perfect. I’ve never seen a pair of headphones with such a good build quality. The material are luxurious and looks durable.
Sound: after having tried (and ordered) another pair of headphone (from their major Danish competitor) I realised that the sound is very muffled on the B&w P5. although very clear and balanced, sounds is not open and lack of deepness. Bass is pure. I have to say.
Could not be happier. They are like new. I used to have the p3 series 1 and these came in just like a new pair. Clean plain white box with certification from b&w.
Sound is exquisite. To my taste it’s the perfect sound signature. Pure clear sound. Balanced but powerful bass, mid and high. I listen a lot of different genres and p5 delivered on all regardless.
Build quality a1.
Only thing: they do sound not as powerful as the wired version. But the highest level is just enough for my own personal taste. However 4% lower would have been an issue. If you plug the cable in, they sound at least 20% louder.
Secondly, they don’t charge more than 90%. Weird but not an issue so far. Never ran out of juice. (I charge them every night).
I am very happy with my purchase. Hard earned money well spend.
My only previous purchases of "certified refurbished" products were from Apple, where one gets a physically and functionally perfect condition device, and full mfg warranty. These headphones were very close, but not totally physically flawless. There were a few tiny lines and scuffs on the leather, which one might expect after a few days or weeks of use. That said, totally worth the $80 savings.
Will need to try stretching them out over time otherwise can only listen for 1-2 hours before feeling a lot of discomfort.
