B&W turns 50 and is celebrating in some style with its P9 headphones.
No matter what we fed them, they were able to adjust and fire out music that's both accurate and enjoyable.
The price tag will cause some to wince, but for that you get a very talented pair of headphones.

Philips has pulled off a miracle with these headphones. They're wireless, feature noise-cancelling and offer a performance that's not to be sniffed at for the price (£90).
The sound is spacious, well-organised and surprisingly detailed. They'll keep you satisfied for many hours.

For £600 this Epson projector offers a great performance. Apart from a rather thin sound, we can't of a reason why you wouldn't want it.
From its clear, detailed picture to its impressive contrast and well balanced colours, the Epson puts in an engrossing performance. Those looking for a quality projector on a budget, look no further.
