Bowers & Wilkins
Bowers & Wilkins are a company who need very little introduction, having been constructing some of the world's most critically acclaimed loudspeaker and headphone models for half of a decade. Starting at the entry level 600 S2 series, through to the CM S2 audiophile 'compact monitor' range, 800 Diamond series and flagship Nautilus model. These different series of loudspeaker have been praised as the superior listening experience in both two channel hifi/music listening and in multi-channel home theatre applications, having claimed a vast multitude of awards in both categories. A Bowers speaker can be easily recognised by the signature yellow Kevlar midrange cone, which can be found with their 600 and CM series with the 800 Series opting for a silver 'continuum' cone.
Bowers & Wilkins shook the industry again in 2006 with the release of what is considered to be the very first premium level iPod dock, dubbed the 'Zeppelin', which was subsequently superseded by AirPlay-enabled and revamped 'Zeppelin Air', through to the current aptX/AirPlay/Spotify Connect model; The Zeppelin Wireless. The original Zeppelin marked a new chapter in Bowers & Wilkins' history and began their journey into other quality 'new-media' products.
From this, the headphones C5 (in-ear model) P3, P5 and P7 were born with the P3 Series 2, P5 Series 2, Bluetooth aptX-enabled P5 Wireless and P7 Wireless models with the flagship P9 Signature being launched in October, 2016. Iconic in their own right, each release from Bowers & Wilkins is a testament to the company's commitment to impeccable design and uncompromising sound, assembled in a way that reflects true British craftsmanship.

Piano Black CM9s 2s
The sound of these with the right music can make your hair stand on end its that good certain music can sound a little harsh and also dependant on amp choice. I use vintage high end technics which works well. finish is perfection I'am a little sad there not made in uk any more is the only draw back
Very very good headphones. looks and feels like real quality. I got the RC ones but you couldn't tell - they were perfect. Tried listening to my old headphones for comparison. the sound in thE old ones was very soupy. lots of muffled bass compared to the clear crisp bass of the B&W's. The carrying pouch for the ivory coloured ones is a bit girlie. thats my only criticism and also the leads feel very flimsy. I use them in the workshop cutting metal and it scares me a little but on the plus side - they can easily be replaced. a feature I have never seen before!
