Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless is the latest incarnation of the p5 on-ear headphone, following the footsteps of the previous P5 Series 2 with the addition of the much welcome AptX Bluetooth connectivity. For those who prefer wired connection should not be disappointed because with the bundled cable attached, it sounds even better than the previous P5 Series 2. Nothing is lost and much to be gained with this latest P5.
The build and industrial design are similar with previous versions, luxuriously wrapped in soft Italian Sheep Skin. P5 Wireless is most likely the best on-ear headphone available on the market. Sheep skin is more breathable than synthetic materials found on most other headphones, allowing comfortable long listening sessions. This is a “can’t go wrong” product if you are in the market for a pair of portable high end on-ear cans.
If you prefer something more immersive, and don’t mind a slightly bulkier form factor, then take a look at P5 Wireless’ bigger brother, the over-ear P7 Wireless.
