Bowers & Wilkins P5 Maserati Edition

Bowers & Wilkins and Maserati announce a collaboration, both renowned for their dedication to technological innovation in pursuit of ultimate performance. Paying homage to the design heritage of both brands, the P5 Maserati Edition delivers an immersive mobile listening experience.

Just as highly regarded for their luxurious attention to detail and use of premium materials, it’s only fitting that once again, the two companies are collaborating to create great products, with the additional release of the 805 Maserati Edition Speakers.

For a luxuriously comfortable fit, the P5 Maserati Edition is crafted from fine-grain natural leather in Maserati’s iconic and distinctive deep racing blue. The P5 Maserati Edition also features the iconic Maserati Trident emblem on the headband, and on the exclusive quilted leather travel pouch. The Trident was designed by Mario Maserati in 1926, based on the statue of Neptune in the fountain of Bologna’s Piazza Maggiore.

The P5 Maserati Edition also features award-winning audio performance for which the original P5 Mobile Hi-Fi Headphone is renowned for, with unfatiguing natural sound from the use of specially developed, ultra-linear neodymium magnets and highly optimised Mylar diaphragms; Offering maximum noise isolation through a
combination of sealed-leather ear pads and a closed-back design featuring a rigid metal faceplate; and extreme comfort for extended listening.

“P5 has proven to be an enduring, true high performance headphone design and the release of the limited, P5 Maserati Edition is a fitting gesture that will be appreciated by enthusiasts everywhere”, Geoff Matthews, CEO of Australian distributor Convoy International, told AV Life.

The P5 Maserati Edition is supplied with a Made For iPhone approved cable, which allows for speech and device control, as well as giving the user a high-quality, standard audio cable with gold-plated plugs. Switching between the two is facilitated by the magnetically attached ear pads, which simply pop off allowing access to the cable.

Bowers & Wilkins P5 Maserati Edition will be available from April 2014, at $549.95 RRP

Bowers & Wilkins is distributed in Australia by Convoy International.
