Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless - Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones - Black
About this deal
As a result, wired performance was very similar to P5 S2, but slightly different in comparison to Wireless which now depends on internal D/A audio decoding of digital stream and analog conversion to pump the drivers.
Lower-mids have a nice body without adding extra "weight" to the sound, and upper mids have a great level of smooth clarity with excellent retrieval of details.
Despite the rock-solid construction, the P5 is only marginally heavier than the Phiatons and Monster Beats Solos – quite a feat considering how much more solid the construction of the P5 feels.
When it comes to outside-your-ear-canal headphones, the P5 is as well-rounded a portable product as I’ve seen. The clamp is too much for my liking and with leather being steamy over time, after about 1-2 hours of use I noticed my ears kind of sweat, and this happens to me right now as I'm writing this review, even if its freezing cold right now. These P5s may not be as forgiving as the smooth and rich Sennheiser Momentum over-ears, but neither do they make a fuss when playing low-resolution MP3s.It felt better after 20 minutes or so, and after several days of use, the headphones did loosen up a bit–I was eventually able to wear the P5 comfortably for multi-hour listening sessions–but I never forgot I had headphones on. and meantime I want to improve my knowledge of how wired vs BT transition is handled wrt the **microphone** functionality, using these as an example.
