How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Don't let the leather padding fool you: though these high-end headphones offer luxury styling, there's plenty of substance behind them as well. The P5s are designed to deliver a rich, "neutral" sound, which won't boost your bass, but will instead deliver well-balanced audio across a broad spectrum of music. Despite a design that makes them smaller and lighter than many over-the-head models, the snug fit blocks out most outside noise, and the reduced weight makes them more comfortable for extended listening sessions. Two cables are included: one has a remote that allows you to control playback on iOS devices, as well as a mic, in case you want to take a break from the music and use these to talk to people.
