Overview: The Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) P5 Series 2 on-ear headphones
retain the classic styling of the original P5s, with the leather ear pads and
detachable cables. The Series 2 edition features an upgraded drive unit for even
better sound quality. The P5 Series 2 headphones come with two 4' cables, one
with an in-line remote/mic compatible with Apple iPhone/iPad/iPod, and a quilted
storage case with magnetic closures.
Ear Cups and Drivers: The P5 headphones feature 40mm dynamic drivers
that work more like a driver in a hi-fi speaker. The headphones are tuned by
sound engineers, so they sound as good as they look. The removable magnetic ear pads
allow you to change the cable, or replace the pads if they gets damaged. These
luxurious sheep's leather ear pads with an optimized grille pattern to allow the
air to move freely through the pads for minimal acoustic impedance.
Folding Design: The ear cups swivel so you can
fold them flat for compact storage in the supplied quilted soft case.
Cables: The B&W P5 headphones come with two 48" interchangeable
cables, including one with an in-line remote and microphone that works with your
iPhone. The headphone cable has a unique curved terminal on the headphone end
that plugs in under the left earcup. The 2.5mm sub-mini plug rests in a
contoured jack to protect the terminal and prevents accidental disconnection. A
spare cable, without the mic/remote, is supplied. The 3.5mm miniplug features a
slim connector (less than 1/4" in diameter) that allows you to plug into your
portable music device, even when it's housed in a hard protective case.
Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad: The in-line mic/remote on the headphone
cable is certified to work with Apple i-devices. The 3-button remote can control
volume with the two outer buttons and playback with the center button. A single
click of the center button will answer or hang up a phone call, and toggle
between pause and play. Two quick clicks will skip the playback to the next
song, while three quick clicks skips back to the beginning of the currently
playing song. The remote and mic are supported by iPhone 3GS or later, iPad,
iPod touch (2nd generation or later), iPod classic (120 GB, 60 GB), and iPod
nano (4th generation or later). The remote is also supported by iPod shuffle
(3rd generation or later). Audio is supported by all iPad and iPod models.
