Design and Comfort

The Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless headphones are elegant and understated making them perfect for everyday use. I bought my first pair of Bowers & Wilkins P5 headphones over five years ago and I still have them today. I’m an audiophile by trade, but can’t bear to lug around my bulky planar-magnetic headphones to and from work. My P5s have always been great because they slip right into my backpack, and are able to take a beating.

Design and Comfort

The Bowers & Wilkins P3 Series 2 headphones arrived at my office neatly folded up in a plastic clamshell styled case. Made of aluminum and a durable rubber body, it feels extremely rugged for its small size. The headphones mimic the style of the popular P5 headphones, but at nearly half the size, making these headphones lighter and more portable. Although it might not be recommended, I have carried these headphones in my jacket pocket and bag without the case. The included plastic case added too much bulk and didn’t have the same high-end Bowers & Wilkins feel.

Long story short, these headphones are worth every penny. Having owned the first version of Bowers & Wilkins’ C5 in-ear headphones, I was extremely eager to try the C5 Series 2. Looking at the earbuds, your eyes are drawn to the silver steel balls on the outer plane of the earbud. Truly a unique design, the Micro Porous Filter is more than a pretty design. Bowers & Wilkins claim that the filter acts as a “diffuser, enhancing clarity and making the music feel spacious.” Bowers & Wilkins was able to seamlessly integrated design and functionality with the C5 In-Ear Headphones.
