Bowers & Wilkins promises to provide an unprecedented level of audio enjoyment on the movie with its first ever headphone–the P5 Mobile Hi-Fi Headphone, and with 45 years of audio experience going into this creation, everything seems quite promising.
For those who are unfamiliar with the label, B&W is the label behind the world-renowned 800 series speakers used in the likes of Abbey Road Studio (the largest recording studio in the world) and is also the Zeppelin iPod speakers.
Championing “unfatiguing natural sound” with stellar noise isolation to keep sounds of the street from butchering your favorite tunes, B&W used highly technical materials (ultra-linear neodymium magnets and highly optimized mylar diaphragms) to ensure that countless hours of listening will not detriment the user’s audio experience.
While many companies strive for sound isolation via: electronic tweaks, B&W does it through stellar physical construction. A closed-back design featuring rigid metal faceplate and sealed premium sheep leather ear pads promises to remove any trace of external noise and also keep sound from leaking. While the headphones may be large, the comfort is not compromised in anyway.
For the countless iPod and iPhone users out there, fret not about compatibility. The P5 comes packed with iPod compatible cables which allow for speech and device control. Also, a high quality, standard audio cable with gold-plated plugs are equipped for the P5. And, switching is easy as peas as one can simply pop off the magnetically attached ear pads to gain access to the cable.
Bring studio experience on-the-go and invest in a pair of headphones that might possibly end your quest for better sound, the P5 will soon be available at your nearest B&W retailer.
