    I was very interested in buying the Momentum Wireless but put that in hold when Sennheiser advised they were investigating BT signal issues being reported on forums. I will definitely look to demo these

    Love my P7's and have a P5 series 1 but I may be very tempted by these especially if I can offload my current P5's.

    Any owners out there yet?
    May pop along to local store and check out tomorrow.

    I was in a similar position and after testing the M2, P5's, beat studio and Soundlinks I have splashed the cash on the Sennheiser M2's in Ivory. build quality was good on the P5's but for me the M2's felt more comfortable.

    @Mr X, have a nagging suspicion they may do a wireless P7 now, maybe adding noise cancelling due to the bigger housing

    @bob mushroom, did you demo the Zik 2.0?

    I have a feeling you could be right.

    I've never owned a BT headset and although I know the tech has improved would a BT P7 sound better than a word P7? I doubt it???

    The size of the P7 is fine for me at home but the P5 is better as a portable.
    Looks like I'll hold off for a while.

    i bought a pair at the weekend but im probably going to return them and go back to my Beats Studio Wireless. Whilst they sound (much) better, I need noise cancelling as I work in a noisey office :(

    Sennheiser Momentum M2 Wireless are apparently really good..... and also have noise cancelling. About the same price as the P5 Wireless too!

    oh nice. i'll look into them.

    I did buy some Bose QC25s but the sound wasnt as good as the P5 wireless. But more annoyingly, i found them uncomfortable with my glasses. Its so difficult to find a'perfect' pair of headphones

    Just got a pair today.... so far liking them very much.

    Surprisingly light for all the tech they contain.

    Long shot but anyone compared them to the wired P7's in terms of sound quality?

    P7 are better..... but that is because of the around the ear seal you get.

    They are similar though as they use the same tech..... but different due to the internal amp and dac.

    I think the treble response is better on the P7.... but I don't know many headphones that match their heights!
