Bowers & Wilkins P5 Series 2On-Ear Headphones
For the enthusiast there is no price for quality sound, and for the discerning audiophile high quality headphones are a must. If you fit into either of these categories you know Bowers & Wilkins produces some of the best audio products on the market. Today we have the pleasure of slipping on their P5 headphones for this TechwareLabs review.
Big sound doesn’t have to come from big speakers, just high quality ones, and you can often find room filling sound that is loud but without quality. The P5 headphones aims to give your ears room filling sound with excellent quality. Retail pricetag on the P5 is a bit high at $299 but they can be found ranging from $229 to $269 on store shelves. At this price you clearly expect high quality sound and we will talk about our real life experience with the P5’s later.
