B&W P5 Wireless: B&W’s first Bluetooth headphones

null

Essentially the same design as the excellent B&W P5 Series 2, the Wireless model adds aptX Bluetooth, on-board controls, two microphones and a lithium battery.

Like the P5 S2, the P5 Wireless comes dressed in aluminium and sheep’s leather.

There is super-soft foam in the earpads, which are held in place by magnets, and can be replaced.

Detach the pads and you’ll find 40mm drivers with suspended diaphragms, like the ones on the more expensive B&W P7 - it's a design similar to that of a conventional speaker.

A full charge, B&W claims, will give you 17 hours of battery life. A USB charging cable is included, as is a 3.5mm cable (for wired listening) and a padded carrying case.

The B&W P5 Wireless headphones are in shops today, priced at £330.
