For £200, I would expect a ridiculously-good-sounding pair of headphones, and in some respects at least the Ferrari Scuderia P200's 50mm drivers supply the goods. While the openings at the side of the earcups reduce sound isolation so sound quality is not perfect as I would have expected, they help to provide these headphones with a lush, open sound that's impressively wide - more what I'd expect from an open-back pair than one such as this.
The expansive sound is complemented by fairly sweet, smooth treble. The overall tone is a very pleasant one at times - rich and silken with the right material.
However, there are some issues with the tuning of these headphones that makes me question whether they're worth the money. The bass is, to repeat adjectives, smooth and full - and fairly deep too - but isn't as disciplined as it should be in this class. It routinely oversteps its boundaries when there's an excitable kick drum or bass guitar involved, pulling focus in a way that's not really acceptable in a £200 headphone.
As soon as branding starts to play a big role in a product, value comes into jeopardy. These are among the cheaper high-end headphones in the Scuderia range, which rockets up to £328 for the noise-cancelling R300 model. You could even argue that at £200, these are pretty cheap for a Ferrari-endorsed product - heck an official Ferrari keyring costs £138, however in a lot of ways, this is one of the least desriable designs in this range and should probably be steered away from.
