Good: Beautifully made, stunning design, excellent fit and great sound. What easle do you need?
Bad: Cable is flimsy (but okish) and pad size smaller than the P5
Comment: Great look and feel added to wonderful full sound makes these phones an excellent choice. I did not find either the bass or the high notes lacking though I did find some leakage so do not go thinking these are sound cancelling, they are sound reduction and not brilliant at that either. I love them, beautifully made and great sound, treat yourself.
Good: Bass is very deep, Midrange is fantastic, Very durable, Clear vocals, one of the best you can get for £170
Bad: Needs a little more of the higher frequencies
Comment: Only made from rubber, stainless steel and cloth for the earpads. Sound quality is brilliant, and I can't understand why you would say they are light on bass because trust me they ain't. I have had them since they came out and I couldn't ask for anything better however I wouldn't mind getting myself a pair of p5's to see how they perform. Buy the p3's and trust me, you won't be disappointed unless your into the cheap tat like BEATS! which only perform bass bass bass, which is unnatural and the beats are usually muffled and unbalanced. If your into natural, quality music and sound then these are for you.
