So I’ve been using these Bowers & Wilkins P5 Headphones for two weeks now and I am hooked. I got them because I am a ~blogger~ and a ~musician~ and I think that means my opinion counts!! Plus when someone emails you and says, “Hey we want to send you these headphones, they’re built by a brand with equipment in London’s Abbey Road Studios and also they’re made of SOFT NEW ZEALAND SHEEP’S LEATHER and will feel so nice on your EARS” then you probably should accept the offer.
They’re soft and warm and they sound pretty amazing. Currently the music of choice for me is Robyn’s record Body Talk. The bass is so thick and the highs are oh-so crisp. Songs played through these ‘phones make the rest of the world fade away. That’s how I like to listen to music.
Normally I would prefer to not be that hipster asshole who walks around with a pair of big expensive headphones around their neck, but I’ve grown quite attached to the look of them. The design is super nice. They’re sleek and modern but also remind me of old headphones from my high school library. Also I’m kind of a hipster asshole. Well a hipster at least.
Overall I am a huge fan. My only complaint is that they’re a little tight when I’m wearing my glasses, which can get a little uncomfortable. There’s a certain way to wear them where this happens less, but I haven’t yet mastered it. For me, this is something I’m willing to endure because I like them so much.
In conclusion, these beautiful headphones will set you back about $300 but if you can afford that and you’re looking for a high quality audio experience, go for it.
PLUS they’ve got a mic so you can use them with your iPhone. Bonus points!!
