  • Summary: Add the B & W P5 headphones to my top pick list of headphones. It's no wonder that many audiophiles use headphones as main speakers. Whether used at home or on the go, the B & W P5 headphones offer superior style, comfort and sound quality. The P5s are a concert for one that's truly worth the price of admission.

  • Excerpt: Bowers & Wilkins, a name synonymous with high fidelity and premium products, recently unveiled the B&W P5 Mobile Hi-Fi headphones, a pair of headphones long overdue for iPod, iPhone and other mobile players. The P5′s, designed by Morten Warren (the designer behind the B&W Zeppelin ) certainly looks as great as it will inevitably sound (yes, we give B&W that much credit).

Bowers & Wilkins P5 Headphones Review

  • Excerpt: How do you judge a pair of headphones in this pristine, digital age when you’re listening to a new track from Jónsi and Alex that has analog noise added for effect? I have no idea, but boy, does it sound ethereal and haunting. The track is “ Daníell In The Sea ”, which may not be your your preferred style of music or even what you might call a “song”. But I like it and on the Bowers & Wilkins P5 headphones, I like it even more.
  • Pros: Incredible sound and isolation, very comfortable, cool looking, very well made
  • Cons: Expensive

  • Excerpt: Yes amazingness. No it is not a real word, but it is the only way to describe the quality, build, comfort, and sound of the Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) P5 headphones. Quality/build: Here’s the rundown: memory-foam-padded earphones, sheepskin earcups, interchangeable cables, no exposed ports, detachable earpads (but there aren’t replacement pads available), magnetic coupling.

Bowers & Wilkins P5 Review

30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: A few months ago, I bought a pair of the Bowers & Wilkins P5 headphones .  The headphones retail for $299.95 (a bit expensive, but so worth it).  The B&W P5′s are noise isolating headphones and are dubbed as a “Concert for One”.  Let me tell you, these bad boys are just that.  To put it bluntly – they kick ass.  The P5′s ear pads are made with memory foam covered by New Zealand sheep leather and boy are they comfy.

Bowers & Wilkins P5 Mobile Hi-Fi Headphones

  • Summary: The cable connection is made at a right angle inside the left earpiece, which should reduce strain on the cord if it becomes caught on anything. We do hope B&W will introduce a longer cable as an accessory, because we want to plug them into our hi-fi system, kick back in our La-Z-Boy with a generous pour of Red Breast, and groove the night away.
  • Pros: Exquisite sound, impeccable design, decadent comfort.
  • Cons: $300 list price renders them expensive; too-short cable.
