Bowers & Wilkins P5 New Review via GDeluxe: I’m going to keep this Bowers & Wilkins P5 new review short and light. There’s only so much you can say about headphones for iPhone, iPad, iPod and Mac. No matter what a manufacture does, only what you want to see about this excellent headphones. I tested BeatsPro, Bose and Bowers & Wilkins P5. Hmm. BeatsPro - only marketing, but who's win: Bose or Bowers & Wilkins P5. Ok. Let go bro.
We want to say Yes:
Ultra-luxurious designed by Native
Compact and comes with very beautiful case
iPhone + iPad compatibility
Leather + metal accents
Priced to move at €300-330
We want to say No:
Hmm. Perhaps a white one?
Does Bowers & Wilkins have a history in audio? Oh yes, Bowers & Wilkins like Bose (!!!) are known the world over for their audio equipment. Up until recently, they mostly catered to the audiophiles but the good thing is consumers like us reap the rewards – rich audio for a fraction of the cost.
Bowers & Wilkins P5 Feeling. Feel good? Oh yes! It’s padded and covered in supple leather. The build quality is excellent and everything moves with just the right amount of tension – a hallmark of superior craftsmanship. It’s extra-luxurious without being tacky or forced – simply effortless and even from afar, the design stands out among a sea of brand names. Bowers & Wilkins made headphones for different lifestyle: business segment, teenagers and audiophiles. If you like listen music in office or when you have relaxasion - it's for you. If you teenager Bowers & Wilkins P5 design make you stylish.
Bowers & Wilkins P5 Sound. Sound good? Oh yes. Sometimes I listen classical music - Bowers & Wilkins can do it very good. I spend time with trance/dance music like Armin, Bowers & Wilkins very good reason for this way. If you like rock (i say about good rock), B&W has use sound. The sound is vibrant and you can really hear the difference with lossless audio. B&W calls it “natural sound.” The range is superb. Highs, lows, mids – all sound clear and intelligible. I especially love the way the ear pads are designed. They kinda cocoon your ears to provide noise isolation. No software based wizardry here, just really good industrial design.
Bower & Wilkins P5 Unibody. You can listen music on iPhone, iPad or iPod - compatible built-in mic/volume control is a boon. The design is pretty much a clone of what comes packed with the Apple branded earbuds but worlds apart in terms of audio reproduction. You can even hear the difference when making phone calls.
With Bowers & Wiliins P5 you have luxury audio experience without having to sell something to pay for it. At €300-330, the Bowers & Wiliins P5′s are comparable with other higher end headphones like Bose or BeatsPro in the market but small features like leather and full iPhone/iPod compatibility make it a smart buy anyone looking to experience hi-fi audio on the go. Hear sound the way it was meant to be and look chic while doing it too.
Who's win? Hmmm. I think Bowers & Wilkins.
