"The P5 Series 2 handsome design and comfortable fit are just extra perks—and it easily earns our Editors' Choice award. They're both extremely comfortable and output gorgeous audio with deep, rich lows and excellent definition in the highs."

"I found the P5 Series 2 was overall an exceptional experience. They are a pleasure to wear and use on a regular basis. Given the experience of listening to them has spoiled me for other small portable headsets. At the end of the day that’s really the conclusion, the P5 Series 2 headset was so good that I found myself taking it with me over other options. It has excellent construction, an attractive build, and wonderful audio. You wont be disappointed in your purchase of the P5 Series 2 from Bowers & Wilkins."


"The bottom line: there are few on-ear pairs this size, at any price, that sound as good. Bowers & Wilkins kept everything that worked, and tweaked the audio formula a bit, updating the engine essentially. And the P5 Series 2s deserve to be heard."

"B&W is well-known for detailed, comfortable headphones that are capable of notable aural magnificence. The P5 Series 2 on-ears live up to that tradition: They're comfortable, stylish, and sound great."

"Same great design with a high-end luxury appeal, ear cups have been redesigned for better air flow and comfort, the addition of the same drivers currently in the P7 headphones mean the P5 Series 2 headphones sound even better than they look. Listeners will look slick and rich in these headphones, and the better sound performance only enhances their appeal."

"For the combination of sound, comfort, and style, the P5 Series 2 is my new go-to headphone."
