"Best. Headphones. Ever."5.0 starson by abalboni
Pros: Sleek and stylish, sound and feel phenomenal, mobile and durable, rival my Bang & Olufsen (then again, they don't make headphones in this class).
Cons: A bit clunky when you're in a hurry, leather pads can become uncomfortable when I wear my glasses (expected though).
Summary: I have had Bose, Bang & Olufsen, Apple, and for a short but hellish time, Beats by Dr. Dre. Without a doubt, the British have outdone the Danish. Sleek, sexy, solid construction, unbelievable sound quality, and backed by the customer service you can expect from Bowers & Wilkins. It's as if they have taken my B&W home theatre and compressed it into a pair of stylish cans! Beats; too much bass. Bose; too much hype, cheep construction. Bang & Olufsen; cool looking and good sounding, but not as good. Apple; over-priced for the quality and too white and cultish... From what I have ascertained, I am an audiophile (no I do not have wet dreams of a home theatre speaker),or a picky individual with a inclination for finding the right sound producing device and I am a damn picky one. Bowers & Wilkins have not only answered my quest for, dare I say, perfect desktop speakers (MM-1) but for headphones as well. If you are willing to spend the cash, go for it!
