IPod docking stations (Zeppelin) and PC speakers (MM-1) B & W with the P5 ventures out again into a new market segment. And the Englishman will take also this storm. Because the P5 offers the same triple cause for rejoicing demanding outdoor enthusiasts.

Many in-ear holdout forward scents than a comfortable receiver in a look and quality of workmanship that leaves no wish unfulfilled. Soft New Zealand Sheepskin is nestled on noble metal, and who performs this handset, can be sure of curious, sometimes envious looks of passers-by.

In addition, offers the P5 with integrated microphone and remote control for iPod and iPhone even the most ardent permanent telephones an adequate tool. By pressing a key on the remote control can be an call and stop, stop the track played, continue and browse, or – in the iPhone 3GS, for example – the volume control.

Who wants to be not always available, which exchanges the detachable cable easily against a Variant without a microphone. Last but not least, the P5 sounds so outrageously great that he had to compete against high-end competitors called HD 800 Sennheiser to learn its acoustic limits.

B & W promises a “fatigue free” sound – actually you can listen for hours enjoy the P5 with its detailed, but never exaggerated sound, controlled dry bass and the pleasantly subtle centers.
