Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless

 

The Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless are simply the wireless edition of the P5 Series 2 headphones I reviewed earlier this year. With this added functionality, you can now stream wirelessly from your phone. In most other respects, however, the design is...

High-class style ; Rich sound ; Wireless

Some report connectivity complaints ; Thick sound limits separation ; On-cup buttons could be refined

Luxurious, good-sounding wireless headphones – but for the price there are better units available.

B&W P5 Wireless review

 

Best wireless headphones £200-£300, Awards 2016. Bowers & Wilkins enters the Bluetooth headphone market. Do the B&W P5 Wireless cans have what it takes to compete?

Excellent sound ; Lovely design and build ; Easy Bluetooth operation

Nothing of note

The cord is cut but the quality remains. These are excellent Bluetooth headphones

Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless headphones review: Class without the cables

 

When Bowers & Wilkins released the T7 wireless Bluetooth speaker , its quality considering its portability was outstanding. It was also the first time the company had opted for that specific wire-free technology, having only dabbled with Apple AirPlay...

Beautifully designed for aesthetics and comfort, Bluetooth 3.0 aptX compatible, 17 hours of battery life per charge, audiophile standard performance

Pricey when compared to the wired P5 headphones and some competitors

The Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless headphones are, quite simply, among the best wire-free cans we've heard. That's why they come at a premium.

Bowers and Wilkins P5 Wireless review

 

Stunning wireless audio...but with a connectivity catch

Fantastic sound quality ; aptX support ; Great battery life ; Easy to connect

Often flaky Bluetooth ; Cheap-feeling control buttons ; Pricey ; Can get uncomfortable when wearing glasses

The sound quality of these wireless headphones is excellent; rich, detailed and surprisingly powerful. But the P5 Wireless is let down by some flaky, frustrating Bluetooth connectivity problems.

Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless review

 

The P5 Wireless is an incredibly classy pair of Bluetooth headphones with the signature Bowers & Wilkins sound

The P5 Wireless builds upon what made the P5 great and adds the convenience of not being tethered by a cable, which is something you really appreciate once it’s gone. They’re supremely well-built with a fantastic design and luxurious feel. You’ll just...

B&W P5 Wireless headphones review

 

Ditch the cables and get great sound from your phone, tablet or PC wirelessly

We said in our Series 2 review that some might find the £249 price a little hard to swallow, and it’s harder still to stump up £80 more for the removal of a cable. Yet, if you are specifically after wireless headphones, these are one of the best pairs...

  (Rating Hidden)

These Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless headphones are pricey and instantly recognisable thanks to their rectangular ear pads. Does the price indicate quality, or are these headphones punching above their weight? Find out in our full review.

Review: Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless headphones

 

High-end Bluetooth audio technology makes cutting the cable a treat.

Thanks to Bluetooth aptX (the high-quality audio standard), the P5 Wireless deliver sound that is clean, powerful and highly impressive.

Bowers & Wilkins P5 review

 

The P5 are super stylish and sound good, but you'd better be ready for a powerful ride.

If the Bowers & Wilkins P5 look like an Aston Martin, they sound like a muscled up Mustang. While the low end can get a little pushy for our ears, those seeking powerful, musical bass without sacrificing lucidity in the midrange and treble will...
