About this deal

It's a similar design used in P7, and I do want to comment about being careful if you have sharp nails not to damage the leather since these magnets are quite strong.

It felt better after 20 minutes or so, and after several days of use, the headphones did loosen up a bit–I was eventually able to wear the P5 comfortably for multi-hour listening sessions–but I never forgot I had headphones on. With the sterling reputation backing the British audio company, I expected great things with the P5 Series 2.View image in fullscreen The left ear cup has a microUSB port for charging and a power slider, which puts the headphones into pairing mode if held down for a couple of seconds.

After burn-in, bass became very tight and more controlled with just a slight hint of spilling into lower mids. Only rarely did I feel that a snare hit or guitar pluck in the mid-high frequency range was a bit too intense. The all leather/metal construction and the "timeless and vintage" make it a winner in the looks department. Sound (8/10): There is no denying that the P5 is a brilliant portable headphone from a usability standpoint, but it also holds its own in sound quality against the other consumer-oriented sets in this lineup.This is by no means a dealbreaker, but again it sacrifices the overall clarity of the signature a bit to achieve this property. If you’re looking for a premium pair of headphones that look and sound the part, the new P5s should be on top of your list. Finally, the skull ripping “Come On” from Stanley Clarke’s The Toys Of Men was served up with full impact by the P5s.

It should provide some decent protection though obviously not as much as you'd get from a hard carry case.

The reggae bass line on “Chop ‘Em Down” from Matisyahu’s Live At Stubbs was forceful and full sounding but well-controlled, while they also conveyed a good sense of space in the club. There is enough grip for a brisk walk, but we would caution against anything beyond a moderate headbang.
