Bowers & Wilkins Cuts The Cord With P5 Wireless, But Does The Quality Suffer?

by Shanika Jhunjhunwala October 01, 2015

For those who haven't heard this yet, Bowers & Wilkins has gone Wireless with their latest launch. With the growing scope in Bluetooth market, B&W decided it couldn't stay behind. It recently launched an upgrade to its P5 Series 2 model for those ardent users who were waiting to go wireless, bu didn't want to switch to another pair of 'phones.

Bowers & Wilkins previously garnered attention with its top class products like  P5P3 and P7. So, you shouldn't be surprised when we say the brand has done it again.

At a first glance, it will be difficult to differentiate between the P5 Wirleless and the P5 Series 2. B&W, without changing much between the two products has still managed to produce a headphone which will floor you with its sound quality. It uses the AptX technology for Bluetooth. AptX enables you to experience CD-like quality audio whenever and wherever you choose.

Connecting to Bluetooth had never been more easy. You can seamlessly listen to your music once connected to your laptops and both Android or iOS phones for 17 hours. You can connect with Bluetooth with a power button which is located on the lower side of the right earpiece. The same earpiece has the 3 button controller on top to switch between songs and control the volume.

Many headphones when upgrade to a  wireless model usually compromise on their sound quality. This is surely not the case with the P5 Wireless. They are impressive and manage to retain the sonic character of the excellent wired version P5 Series 2.

When you compare the price of these on-ear pair of headphones with the over- ear headphones, you might find them a little high. For Rs. 27,999, these headphones are a good deal considering all that they have to offer. It has great sound, comfort and design and is also removes the inconvenience caused by cables. Not to forget, like its predecessors, these also have noise cancelling ability.

If you are someone who doesn't likes an undiluted listening experience while using a wireless headphone, the Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless is the best fit.

It's a perfect time for you to upgrade your B&W P5 Series 2 with these great new pair. You can upgrade now  here!
