The P5 is Bowers & Wilkins foray into the headphones market after 45 years of making hi-fi audio products. This is B&W's second product designed for iPods after the Zeppelin speaker system. These headphones are of the noise-isolating variety, and were designed to provide accurate sound replication of original recordings. The P5 features a closed-back design with metal faceplates and sealed leather earpads, which helps to keep noise interference to a minimum. Since they won't cancel all external noise, they are best suited for those on the go. For those with iPods, the P5 comes with an Apple-approved cable, with speech and device control. Bowers & Wilkins P5 is also designed to be both ergonomic and comfortable, made from New Zealand sheep's leather.
