Bowers & Wilkins' P5 Mobile Hi-Fi headphones

The P5 Mobile Hi-Fi headphones supposedly combine “natural, unfatiguing performance” with a design able to isolate enough noise to ensure that the cans don’t require full electronic noise cancellation.

B&W also said that the P5 headphone’s earcups and padded headband have been clad in the “softest sheep leather”.

Instead of being wireless, the P5 headphones are supplied with a ‘Made For iPod’ approved cable – allowing for speech and device control – and standard audio cable with gold-plated plugs.

Music lovers will be able to buy the P5 Mobile Hi-Fi headphones in January next year. A price hasn’t been heard of, yet. ®
