Bowers & Wilkins announces the launch of their first Bluetooth headphones, the P5 Wireless


The P5 Wireless is Bowers & Wilkins’ first attempt at a set of Bluetooth headphones, and they’re starting strong by producing a wireless version of the P5, using the same quality drivers and lush materials that made the P5 such a favorite among audiophiles everywhere.

Drawing from their experience with the Bowers & WIlkins P7, the engineers at Bowers & Wilkins have put Bluetooth apt-X support in the P5 Wireless, allowing it to deliver a quality wireless music streaming experience. The internal battery provides up to 17 hours of listening pleasure, and USB charging is supported so you can easily recharge your headset from PC or laptop. Three-button controls are also discreetly built into the right ear cup to allow you to pause, skip tracks and take calls.

For those occasions when wireless listening is not allowed, the easily removable ear pads allow you to quickly plug in the supplied back-up cable, which has an inline remote with microphone to complement the two concealed microphones found on the P5 Wireless.

The P5 Wireless is available now at all authorized Bowers & Wilkins dealers for S$690.
