B&W P5 On-Ear Headphones, Black
Product informationGet closer to your favourite music wherever you are with the P5 noise-isolating headphones. Drawing on 45 years of Bowers & Wilkins hi-fi innovation and expertise, the P5 headphones bring you remarkably natural and highly detailed sound on the move, and a luxuriously comfortable fit that makes longer listening sessions a pleasure.
Behind the P5's natural sound is some of the most advanced technology ever to be put into a set of headphones. Specially developed neodymium magnets and highly optimised diaphragms keep music sounding rich, pure and incredibly detailed, with no need for artificial adjustments.
A closed-back design with rigid metal faceplates and sealed earpads ensures that all the detail and dynamic range of your music is kept intact, while preserving just enough ambient sound to give you a sense of place.
These headphones are very easy on the ears, thanks to an ergonomic design and a headband and earpads crafted from the finest quality New Zealand sheep’s leather. Durable and hardwearing, yet remarkably soft and supple, it makes long listening sessions feel more comfortable than ever.
The P5's come with two cables, one with a high quality, gold-plated 3.5mm minijack plug, ideal for use with hi-fi systems, computers or portable players, and one with an on-cable volume control, compatible with the iPod/iPhone, plus a microphone and call accept/end button for hands-free calling on your iPhone.
The leather earpads are magnetically attached, and can be quickly removed to swap the supplied cables. Includes carry case.
The remote and mic are supported only by iPod nano (4th generation and later), iPod classic (12GB, 160GB), iPod touch (2nd generation and later), iPhone 3GS and later, iPad and iPad 2. The remote is supported by iPod shuffle (3rd generation or later).
