Bowers and Wilkins P5 Mobile On Ear Headphones Review

Bowers and Wilkins P5 Mobile On Ear Headphone

There are four essential elements in the design of the perfect set of headphones: sound quality, comfort and style and with the Bowers & Wilkins P5’s you can enjoy the perfect balance of all of them.

Bowers & Wilkins P3 On-Ear Headphones B&W - Black

When it comes to sound quality, the P5’s are the headphones of choice for users who are serious about their audio. Whether you have a penchant for classical music or loud heavy metal, the ultra-linear neodymium magnets ensure a crisp, clear and natural sound. Hear every sound and nuance like never before, as the superior sound quality becomes immediately apparent.

Thanks to the great care taken in the production of the headphones, you don’t have to worry about leakage. The closed back design includes metal faceplates that keep leakage to an absolute minimum. So whatever your surroundings, you can listen to any type of audio without the concern that everyone is listening to it as well.

Another area where these headphones excel is comfort. The people at Bowers & Wilkins understand that comfort is essential when using headphones over a prolonged period. Made with soft sheep’s leather, you can wear them for extended periods without feeling the need to constantly readjust them, or take them off. So if you are planning a long journey on the bus or train, just sit back, hit play and relax.

As well as being compatible with all devices with a headphone output, there is a cable designed specifically for the latest Apple iPod and iPhones, so you can adjust the volume and change tracks at your leisure.
