“A Concert For One”, the Bowers & Wilkins P5 Headphones. As many of you know Bowers and Wilkins is known for their sound, now they have brought it to your personal music listening. The idea was to provide the same great sound as they do in there speakers through the P5 headphones.  Let’s get started with the full review on the Bowers & Wilkins P5 Headphones.

 

Design

The Bowers & Wilkins P5 have their own unique design. They combine a modern design with a older design. In the end it makes for one beautiful piece of technology. The head phones go over your head. They have a nice padding on the top part, this adds to the comfort  and the style levels. When they are on your head, they feel like they were meant to be there. They are not a distraction or are heavy like some other headphones on the market. The earphones themselves are very comfortable as well. They are leather so they may get a little hot, but this is not really an issue. They are plush surrounding the actual internal speaker. The build is top notch, they did not a spare a penny on the design or build quality. Overall the design doe snot interupt the sound. In fact the design makes it is easier to listen, a better experince which makes you fell as if you were at a concert.

 

Sound/Headphones

Bowers & Wilkins are know for their sound.  The P5 headphones are meant to be a “concert for one”. The sound quality is very impressive. The P5’s try to balance all of the sound and give you the best sound possible. From my tests i would have to say this true. It also gives the right amount of bass, meaning that if there is a very bass heavy song, it will try to give you the best sound that the P5’s can give you. It balances everything together, this is very nice feature. Another good feature is that they are not noise canceling but they are passive. This means that while they don’t block all out sound, they sit on top of they ears. Most nose-canceling headphones wrap around your ears. The P5’s keep out most of the sound around you. Not everything though, even with no music playing they muffle some of the sound. This is a nice feature. People around you won’t hear sound either, they keep the sound in and most of the noise out. The P5’s come with a control built into the headphone cord. You can raise the volume, pause and play the song. It also comes with another cord with no remote. They are inetrchangable. The black speakers are held on by magnets, so you can take them off to switch the cords. The Bowers & Wilkins P5 come with a nice case as well. If you keep your headphones in them, they will be nice and safe. Overall the sound of the P5’s are by far some of the best sounds that i have heard come out of headphones in a while. The sound can be compared to that of a concert, it amazes me that the P5’s can have such good sound.

 

Bottom Line

The Bowers & Wilkins P5’s are some the best headphones on the market. The only set back would be the price. The P5’s retail for $299.99 , however if you are in the market for great headphones and want them to last a while by all means go with the P5. Make the investment. They will deliver on  their promise of a “concert for one”. The sound is great, the design is very nice, and the quality is unmatchable. We would recommend the Bowers and Wilkins P5 to anyone who is looking for great headphones. You Can Buy And See The Bowers and Wilkins P5 Headphones Here.
