VER­DICT

Focus-Science and Technology - - INNOVATIONS -

The Bower & Wilkins P9 cans look and sound great, but they’re aimed more at mo­bile use rather than home lis­ten­ing and are rather pricey. The Sennheis­ers, on the other hand, of­fer great value for money but they’re just a lit­tle more ‘or­di­nary’ in terms of de­sign and build. Both the Au­dio-Technica and Quad cans of­fer great def­i­ni­tion, but sound quite dif­fer­ent: the Au­dio-Tech­ni­cas are light and del­i­cate, while the Quads sound warm and rich. The Au­dioTech­ni­cas fared slightly bet­ter with bass-heavy styles, but we’re sure the Quads would catch up in time and that, cou­pled with their stur­dier build, makes them our win­ners, by a hair.
