Bowers & Wilkins P5 Series 2 Headphones

Bowers & Wilkins P5 Series 2 Headphones

Bowers & Wilkins today announced P5 Series 2 on-ear headphones, which use new drive units adapted from the P7 over-ear headphones, along with a sonic upgrade over the original P5 headphones.

Like P7, the new P5 Series 2 uses drivers with a suspended diaphragm far more like a traditional speaker than other headphones, delivering more precise movement. As a result, the new P5 delivers breathtaking sound on the go: a wonderfully open and spacious soundstage, with powerful but also natural and tightly controlled bass, and every detail revealed and brought to life.

Designed for music on the move – with Made for iPhone cable and a carry case included – the new P5 Series 2 is as light, comfortable and luxurious as its predecessor: the new drivers are encased in the finest materials, including real leather and solid metal. The new P5 Series 2 is understated, yet imbued with a sense of style and is endlessly wearable thanks to its luxuriously comfortable fit. So comfortable, you’ll forget the headphones and just feel the music.

Features

New drivers – Based on technology developed for the award-winning P7 headphones, the new P5 Series 2 features drivers with a suspended diaphragm more like a traditional speaker than other headphones. These result in more precise, ‘pistonic’ movement of the diaphragm – and more accurate sound reproduction.

New internal components – Just about every internal component has been altered to ensure the new P5 Series 2 delivers the best possible sound for such portable headphones.

Design and materials – What the new P5 Series 2 shares with its predecessor is the iconic build quality and comfort of its design. High-end materials are used throughout, including leather ear cup covers and headband, solid metal end plates and headband frame.

Portability – Shrinking true Hi-Fi sound to fit in P5 Series 2 is no mean feat. And the new P5 Series 2 sounds better than ever, despite not being any bigger or heavier. With smartphone cable and carry case included, the new P5 Series 2 is true Hi-Fi sound, anywhere and everywhere.

Made for iPhone – P5 Series 2 features an improved Made for iPhone Mic and Remote, with improved ergonomics for more control.

Price and Availability
The Bowers & Wilkins P5 Series 2 headphones will available September 2014, priced at $299.99.
