Bowers & Wilkins and Maserati have joined forces again to release the blue, leather-clad P5 Maserati Edition Mobile Hi-Fi Headphone, which follow the 805 Maserati Edition loudspeaker and Bowers & Wilkins uniquely tuned in-car audio systems for the Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte.
Paying homage to the design heritage of both brands, B&W says the P5 Maserati Edition delivers an immersive mobile listening experience, and the true sound performance that is synonymous with all Bowers & Wilkins audio products, combined with design elements and materials drawn from Maserati’s rich Italian heritage. P5 Maserati Edition is crafted from fine-grain natural leather in Maserati’s iconic and distinctive deep racing blue, for a luxuriously comfortable fit. P5 Maserati Edition also features the iconic Maserati Trident emblem on the headband, and on the exclusive quilted leather travel pouch. The Trident was designed by Mario Maserati in 1926, based on the statue of Neptune in the fountain of Bologna’s
The P5 Maserati Edition features the award-winning audio performance for which the original P5 Mobile Hi-Fi Headphone is renowned, with unfatiguing natural sound from the use of specially developed, ultra-linear neodymium magnets and highly optimized Mylar diaphragms; maximum noise isolation through a combination of sealed-leather ear pads and a closed-back design featuring a rigid metal faceplate; and extreme comfort for extended listening.
Like the original P5 Mobile Hi-Fi Headphone, P5 Maserati Edition is supplied with a Made For iPhone-approved cable, which allows for speech and device control, as well as a high-quality, standard audio cable with gold-plated plugs. Switching between the two is facilitated by the magnetically attached ear pads, which simply pop off allowing access to the cable.

Bowers & Wilkins P5 Maserati Edition mobile hi-fi headphones will be available at $399.99, a hundred dollar premium over the standard P5 headphones.
