Bowers & Wilkins P5 Headphone Review

Using them and loving them, a review of my almost perfect Bower & Wilkins P5 Headphones


First Impressions:

Wow, a finely crafted product with beautiful details and rich materials. Where’s the plastic? All you want to do is touch them.



Mostly at my desk and around the office listening to anything from podcasts to streaming music.  I’ve had them for about 12 months.


Visual Language:

Understated vintage Hi-Fi cool, with a contemporary twist.









Very good, granted I don’t significantly put these through it’s paces with full high quality recordings.  It certainly fulfills the need for an office environment with background noise.



They are great value. Like other vintage Hi-Fi equipment they are something that you will have for life or at least a very long time.  The leather should age with time and will become personalized with wear. The components that might need replacing are modular and can be changed out easily.
