P5 Series 2 is the perfect partner for mobile hi-fidelity. The sound is wonderfully open and spacious. Bass is powerful but also natural and controlled. Subtle details are revealed and brought to life.
Hi-Fi drive units
The drivers in P5 Series 2 are designed to work like those in a Hi-Fi speaker, with a more precise, controlled movement.
P5 Series 2’s ear pads feature an acoustically optimised grille pattern. This allows air to move freely through the pads, reducing acoustic impedance to a minimum.
P5 Series 2 are tuned by the same team responsible for our flagship 800 Series Diamond speakers.
A blend of sheep's leather and aluminium make P5 Series 2 sturdy yet comfortable, and with ultra soft cushioning you'll forget you're even wearing headphones.
Durable and long lasting
Magnets hold P5 Series 2's ear pads in place, so you can easily detach them in order to replace them or change the cable.
Made for life
Perfect partner for on the move listening, P5 Series 2 utilises high performance cabling to allow you to control your music and take calls with ease.
"P5 Series 2 are one of the best pairs of on-ear headphones we've tested. Bowers & Wilkins have done a sterling job once again of combining design and build with decent comfort, noise isolation and excellent sound quality.” - Top 10 headphones 2015
"Bowers & Wilkins's promise of better sound this time round was kept, with sharper sound and clearer mids and treble, despite some issues of balance. Like its predecessor, its design was exemplary."
"Premium on-ear headphones that raise the bar for design and performance. In terms of sheer sound and build quality, they easily raise the bar for the competition to follow. These audiophile-grade headphones are a must-buy for anyone serious about hearing music the way it was intended."
“Capable of bass that'll rattle your bone marrow and the sort of delicate high end that convinces you Snoop Dogg has taken residence in your cochlea.” - 100 Coolest Things in the World
"With P5 Series 2, B&W has finally hit the jackpot: a fantastic pair of cans that are hugely entertaining to listen to."
"Great to look at and extremely comfortable. I was quite easily wearing these for a full day walking around London and never had the urge to take them off. I never at one point experienced discomfort. The best part about these tho are the sound quality. The performance of these P5 Series 2 are amazing!! When you look at the size of the frame and headphones themselves you wouldn’t believe that they would make such a beautiful sound. There is no distortion at top levels and when you need the bass to kick, its kicks! Pure sound quality at its best and an all round winner in my book"
“For the combination of sound, comfort, and style, the P5 Series 2 is my new go-to headphone.”
"The update to one of our favourite over-ear headphones "

The P5 Series 2 are the pinnacle of luxury headphones that at the same time produces a stunning level of acoustic sound. Too few music device manufactures nowadays can produce both luxury, unique design as well as high performing products, Bowers & Wilkins have absolutely met this with the P5 Series 2. Absolutely stunning.

Headphones are superb but slightly to small for my head. When wearing them for 30 minutes or more my ears start to hurt as they squeeze my head
