P5 Wireless – First impressions

P5 Wireless

Bowers & Wilkins has launched its first wireless headphones with aptX Bluetooth technology. Offering all the power, precision and true Hi-Fi sound of the renowned P5 Series 2 headphones, but with the added advantage of high-quality wireless streaming.

P5 Wireless headphones are winning over critics and audio fans across the world. First impressions are now in.

What Hi-Fi? has already given five stars to the P5 Wireless headphones saying: “The P5 Wireless is an executive armchair for your ears, the epitome of portable elegance and a sure way to look and feel smart next to the masses of primary-coloured plastic on the bus.”

Online technology specialist sites love P5 Wireless. Pocket-lint’s first impressions was “it looks like the British audio company’s first foray into the world of wire-free cans was well worth the wait.”

T3 has said: “they sounded great” and “connection stability seemed solid too”. PC Advisor said: “They deliver a balanced, well-defined soundstage with enough bass to satisfy without being overpowering. Similarly, the top-end is crisp without being harsh. Whatever style of music you prefer, the P5 Wireless should be able to put a smile on your face.”

Mainstream media have also been effusive about the P5 Wireless headphones. The Daily Star boldly states “Britain’s best headphones just got better”, and The Huffington Post said: “These are probably the best Bluetooth headphones we’ve ever used.” The Mirror gave a five-star rating saying “They are crisp, well-balanced and with enough bass to keep even the hardiest of dubstep fans satisfied.”

Meanwhile Dutch site HiFi carried out some consumer research by asking people on the streets in Antwerp (Belgium) to test and experience the P5 Wireless and received a great response.

First impressions are looking good.

    When will you release it in South East Asia?

  • Stephan Schulte says:

    I’m really fascinated by this headphone! It’s a dream! I have only one criticism. I wear glasses and after wearing the headphone for some hours the contact pressure will get very unconfortable and painfull. Bowers & Wilkins, please: For the next release construct a fine adjustment mechanism to adjust the contact pressure of the headphone. That would be great!
