The P5 is the first headphone model from Bowers & Wilkins, and has been specially and thoughtfully designed for being used while on the move. These mobile hifi headphones enable you to carry the prestigious and well-known Bowers & Wilkins sound quality with you, whenever you go. Around 45 years of audio experience has been utilisied within the P5, almost half of a century of research, practice and skill in to developing what true sound actually sounds like. The main goal of all B&W products is to bring the best possible accuracy of sound playback, to bring the listener as close to the sound intended by its innitial recording engineers. This goal has been reached through their 800 series speakers (which can be found in Abbey Road Studios), with the best sounding premium iPod speaker; the Zeppelin Air - and now it's true for mobile hifi headphones with the P5.

Taking note of the fact that mobile headphone listening can be a tiring experience, when being used over extended periods of time - B&W engineers at the world-known Stenying Research Establishment have worked non-stop in an attempt to produce a pair of headphones with a natural and unexhausting performance. B&W used specially developed, ultra-linear neodymium magnets and highly optimised mylar diaphragms, in order to give the best possible sound quality. As is expected from anything created or designed by B&W; countless hours of listening and tuning have played a momentous part in foorming the P5's natural and engaging performance. 

This clean and detailed sound performance is down to the intricate design and construction techniques utilised by Bowers & Wilkins to iradicate noise as best as can be, for listenered who do not require full electronic noise cancellation. This isolation is done by using a combination of features, like the closed-back design and rigid metal faceplate, and the sealed leather ear pads. These materials not only serve to remove external noise, but also to provide a vigerating and highly comfortable listening experience with entirely removing the listener's sense spacial awareness. The leather clad headband has been specially designed with extreme comfort as the major push of its creation, and the softest available sheep's leather from New Zealand has been used for the ear pads.

P5 also comes with a 'Made for iPod' approved cable, which enables the user to manipulate speech and device control, such as volume and answering calls. It also comes with a high-quality, standard audio cable complete with gold-plated plugs. Switching between the two cables is simple, the magnetically attached ear pads pop off with ease and allow access to the cable.
