Bowers & Wilkins, the British loudspeaker company noted for bringing its knowledge and experience of acoustic excellence to the headphone category for the first time with the highly regarded P5 headphones, now announces P5 Wireless – the latest in convenience headphone listening without any compromise in audio quality.
The luxurious leather and aluminium materials and discreet, timeless design are familiar to those who know the P5 Series 2, but with the P5 Wireless, people who demand the freedom of wire-free listening can enjoy Bowers & Wilkins sound quality for the first time ever.
Bowers & Wilkins says it is simple to connect to a compatible device, and features intuitive controls that allow users to not only play/pause and skip music but also answer calls without fuss. I noticed it also features two microphones, which can help deliver great telephony audio in addition to fantastic music playback. P5 Wireless’ rechargeable battery lasts a class-leading 17 hours according to Bowers & Wilkins before a charge is required. I will keep you guys posted on this. And thanks to a supplied USB cable, charging from a computer is a breeze.
The new P5 Wireless is priced at $399.99 and available online immediately and in retail locations by July 15, 2015.
