About this deal

Packaging a gear in a black sturdy box has been a common practice with a lot of companies who want to underline premium quality of what to expect inside. The leather earpads can also get a bit warm during long periods of use, but that warmth never became uncomfortable for me; we’ll see if this holds true during hot summer months. Ambient noise is dulled, but voices and sharper sounds are clearly audible through the headphone ear cups meaning I was consistently forced to turn up the volume to drown out my daily commute. com and PC Magazine are among the federally registered trademarks of Ziff Davis and may not be used by third parties without explicit permission.

Truth be told, the P5 does have slightly better clarity and generally sounds smoother, leaner, and tighter than the MS400 but lacks the fullness of the Phiaton’s bass and the warm lushness of its midrange. What is immediately obvious is that the P5s present a spacious concert hall right in the middle of your head.Next, the upbeat “Lump” by The Presidents Of The United States Of America sounded pretty dynamic where usually it would sound squashed with typical ear bud-type headphones. Detail retrieval and clarity lag slightly behind the HD25-1 (especially at low volumes) and transparency is far from outstanding. However, the metal frame connects to the earcups with a relatively thin hinge, which could get damaged by heavy physical stress. It seems like a trend nowadays, where manufacturers provide their bluetooth headphones a crappy cable instead of their standard-issue cable found on their wired counterpart.

Similar to P5 Series 2, clamping force was a bit tight out of the box and required a short break in period. Our HEAD Acoustics ACQUA frequency response tests confirm what is obvious the second you press Play: the P5 is a unique listen. Durable and hardwearing, yet remarkably soft and supple, it makes long listening sessions feel more comfortable than ever. Listening to music was consistently fantastic, but I encountered slight discomfort at times while wearing the P5 Series 2.

The styling of these headphones is just out of this world and in terms of sound, as long as you are not being too analytical about them, they sound very very good and will definitely please most people out there looking for a stylish headphone which sounds good.

The P5 also comes with an attractive, padded carrying case–the P5’s earpieces fold flat for travel–and a 1/4-inch adapter for connecting to a home stereo system. The design is sleek and modern, utilizing only leather and metal to show off their 'mature' and 'manly' look to them. P5W vs Matrix 2 - M2 has less sub-bass and slower mid-bass, thinner lower-mids and less detailed upper mids (not the same level of clarity), similar treble. They tend to be a bit too smooth which could affect some retrieval of details, but still have a good definition and clarity. For those of you accustomed only to ear bud-type phones, you will probably be in for a shock at how great your music can sound, even from an iPod.Just keep in mind that you can get up to 17 hours of listening time from a single charge at moderate volume level.
