Bowers & Wilkins make some of the best sounding (and looking!) audio gear. Every recertified B&W product has “…undergone rigorous testing to ensure they meet Bowers & Wilkins strict quality standards for both sonic performance and mechanical integrity,” and includes a 2-year warranty.
Amazon offers the recertified Bowers & Wilkins P5 headphones in black and gray for $199.99 with free shipping. As a pricing comparison, that’s $100 below the list price for new condition, $40 below B&W’s recertified price, and the lowest price we have ever seen. B&W believes the natural sound emitted from the P5 movie hi-fi headphones creates “true sound” that will change how you enjoy music:
Gimmicky effects like exaggerated bass or artificially enhanced treble quickly become tiring with extended listening. The P5’s natural audio performance brings you close to the sound of the original recording, as you were meant to hear it. Which means you can enjoy your favorite music for longer.
Other features include a made for iPhone remote/mic and “incredibly soft sheep’s leather.” Rated 4.2 out of 5 stars from 175 Amazon reviewers.
Next, Crutchfield has the recertified Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 hi-fi computer speakers for $299.99 with free shipping. That’s $200 below the list price for a pair in new condition, $100 better than Amazon and B&W’s asking price for recertified, and the lowest price we have ever seen.
Unlike other lower-quality computer speakers, the MM-1 speakers connect via USB, which “means there’s less potential for noise and interference to degrade the sound quality. A built-in high-performance DAC (digital-to-analog converter) gives you far greater sonic fidelity than the DACs found most sound cards.” Rated 4.2 out of 5 stars from nearly 100 Amazon reviewers.
