I have B&O high-end headphones for over 3 years now. Could not be any happier. The design is exceptional. The comfort to wear (including while lying in a bed, in the airplane, train) is pleasing. Sound quality, the bass, ambient – makes me immerse with the music even more. I am wearing those close to 16 hours per day. Because it`s that good for me.

Pros

  • Design
  • Sound quality
  • Ambients
  • Bass
  • Comfort to wear
  • Colour

Cons

  • The light coloured ones get dirty through the years
  • Expencive
