  • Summary: Design/durability: The P5 is a truly gorgeous headphone. The all leather/metal construction and the "timeless and vintage" make it a winner in the looks department. The construction and finish of the product is very convincing and feels absolutely premium.
  • Pros: pleasant warm sound; premium looks and feel; good passive isolation; comfortable
  • Cons: Not for critical listening; average soundstage and detail; disappointing durability

  • Pros: Beautiful design, quality construction, smooth sounding.
  • Cons: Gets very hot very fast. A very muffled sound for this price.

Bowers and Wilkins P5 Wireless review

  • Summary: Stunning wireless audio...but with a connectivity catch
  • Pros: Fantastic sound quality, aptX support, Great battery life, Easy to connect, First and foremost, the sound quality is superb. I'm not sure they're quite as good as the superb P5 Series 2, but they are so close it was only through testing the two together, one after the other, that I could sense an...

You can offset them by rearranging where you keep your audio device when you're walking around, but i...

  • Excerpt: De ret flade puder trykker fint ind mod ørerne uden at genere. Der er volumenkontrol på kablet, og hovedtelefonen kan anvendes både som luksushovedtelefon på farten og til det dyre anlæg derhjemme.
