    Nightmare!

    Hi guys,

    Hope you can help! I have been searching the web, far and wide for a decent pair of wireless audiophile cans. I know wired is best, I have Audio Technica TMH M50x's which I really like . Reading countless reviews on countless sites, they all vary on how good the same product sounds.

    I have narrowed it down to four (max budget £300)

    Bowes & Wilkins PX7
    Bowes & Wilkins P5 series 2
    Shure Ionic 50
    Grado GW100 V2 (open back)

    I like a good all rounder that delivers on punchy lows, detailed mids, great imaging and soundstage with crisp highs and accurate representation of how the music is intended to sound which I feel my M50's do well.

    Your expert opinions would be welcome.

    Thanks

    I hate to tell you this, but not only does everyone's taste in music vary widely, but so do sonic preferences. "Punchy lows" may mean something wildly different to you versus someone else. It's good that you're not relying on reviews sites alone to make your final purchasing decision, but I'm afraid you'll have to put in the work of tracking each model down to give it an actual listen.
    Electronics: Pass Labs XP-22, Pass Labs X250.8

    If in your budget look at Hifiman wireless.

    Not heard Shure but they are typically flat in response which I consider a good thing. The Grado wireless got good reviews and they typically have a bass bump in models I have heard.

    I also recommend buying from a retailer who would allow return and keep in mind headphones usually do have a break in period, especially using coil technology.

    I've read great reviews of the Shure Aonic 50, many consider it a masterpiece of headphones!
