That is a serious recommendation.I've owned 2 pairs of the P5s, C5s and now the P9s! I have to say the P9s are worth every cent. Sounds amazing, look great, and solid build quality. Highly recommend for anyone considering.
Damn those thieves, as @Tulani has remarked - but they had good taste.It is a big outlay but when you get 4-5 years of use out of a product its well worth it. I bought my first pair of P5s in 2012 and they got stolen not long after and the second pair has had about 4 years of solid use, around 2-3 hours a day at a minimum.
Ah - my Precious........
.....and the Beat goes on!
I was working abroad at the time and the sound in one of the ear pieces went.repaired? what was the problem and who does repairs for B&W?
I had the right driver fail on my P5s series 1, about a week before the warranty expired. They were promptly repaired by the distributor where I am from. They were almost 4 years only before the left driver failed, so I upgraded to the P9s.All good. Had not heard of failures of these before but you explain it well.
Give me physical control buttons anyday, I must admit. Not a fan of swiping for such purposes.I am observing that they have continued with physical control buttons as opposed to swipe gestures that have manifested on the modern headphones.
I wonder if they have found them to be too gimmicky??
Not that it takes away my love for B&W. Just curious.
Well, personally, I like the nice "physical" feel of a switch, or knob, or dial or button for such functions, and the idea that the device responds to this stimulus.You have a point.
I was just assuming manufacturers would want to “catch up” with the trendsetters like the Sony WH-1000XM3 in both Design and Noice cancellation
