Bowers and Wilkins P5 Series 2 (review): Swanky on-ear headphone looks the same but sounds even better

 

The $300 Bowers and Wilkins P5 Series 2 has the same winning design of its highly rated predecessor, but its sound engine has been upgraded. We approve.

The Bowers and Wilkins P5 Series 2 headphones have excellent build quality and rich, well-balanced sound that's now more transparent and accurate. Its earpads are removable and the two included cables are detachable (one has a built-in Apple friendly...

Somewhat pricey; leather earpads will cause your ears to get steamy on warmer days; not all remote features will work with Android and Windows devices.

The Bowers and Wilkins P5 Series 2 has the same winning design of its highly rated predecessor, but now it sounds even better.

Superb

 

A lovely pair of headphones. Nice design and very well made. Soft ear pads and they rotate to fold and make the phones a bit smaller when placed in the bag. Adjustable and fit a small head. Good value for money. Very pleased.

When they work they are excellent

 

Sadly, mine cut out and crackle. The remote control is also erratic. However, when the music plays at the desired volume, they are wonderful. They are less than a year old but I can't return as I can't find my receipt.

Quite simple...the best!

 

Bought these headphones as a late christmas present...to myself. The are a revelation. Bass response has to be heard to be believed! I would recommend to anybody whether you be audiophile or just after a universe sized step up from generic in-the-ear...

Black Friday Price

 

Bought it on Black Friday deal. V good at that price. They look really good and the sound is good and smooth. The 20kHz frequency could have been a bit higher. They are tight on the ears and start to hurt after a while. Hope there was some sort of...
