For sale: B&W P5, B&W's top of the line headphones. They are in new condition, come with the box, manual, quilted carrying case, as pictured. The headphones exude quality, from the magnetically attached ear muffs, to their leather cover, to the plug in wiring, and the sound is spectacular. There are 2 cables, one has iPod / iPhone / iPad controls and the other is does not.
It was the highest rated headphones in Consumer Reports. So I bought them for my son but he didn't want them.. They're not cool for teenagers apparently.
Paid $350 selling for $225. They are in new unused condition. Cash and carry. Located in east end of Toronto, on subway line.
Here's a blurb on it.
Many manufacturers like to accentuate bass and high frequencies to help make audio sound better. In some cases, it works. For those who prefer all the natural music properties preserved in the original form, there's the Bowers & Wilkins P5 Mobile HiFi Stereo Headphones.
Deep" bass. "Enhanced" treble. Sounds good on the pack, but the problem with the gimmicky effects that so often come with other headphones is that they quickly become tiring with extended listening. With P5, you get a far more natural sound, and longer-lasting listening enjoyment.
Behind P5's natural sound is some of the most advanced technology ever to be put into a set of headphones. Specially developed ultra-linear neodymium magnets and highly optimised Mylar diaphragms keep music sound rich, pure and incredibly detailed, with no need for artificial adjustments.
Use of a closed-back design with rigid metal faceplates and sealed earpads ensures that all the detail and dynamic range of your music is kept intact, while preserving just enough ambient sound to give you a sense of place. This makes the P5 perfect for listening to music on the go.
No one knows how to get great sound out of your iPod or iPhone better than Bowers & Wilkins, makers of the award-winning Zeppelin sound docks. P5 gives you the same amazing sound quality when you're out and about. There's also an iPhone-approved cable, for easy speech and device control.
Smart design and user-friendly features support the P5's high-quality sound and luxury materials. The Made for iPod cable allows easy control of an iPod, and the microphone facilitates calls on an iPhone. The leather earpads are magnetically attached, and can be quickly removed to swap the supplied cables.
