Bowers & Wilkins Reveals Maserati Headphones

Bowers & Wilkins launches Maserati Edition P5 headphones.

Jan 20, 2014 | By Luxuo

The Bowers & Wilkins P5 Mobile Hi-Fi Headphones Maserati Edition is the latest in a growing range of premium audio products aimed directly at music-loving luxury Italian car owners.

Maserati Headphones

The special headphones use the same natural grain leather found in Maserati cabins and, of course, sport the car company’s famous trident badge.

They also come with a special quilted leather carrying pouch and have a dedicated made-for-iPhone cable so that songs don’t have to be interrupted to take a call when out and about.

More importantly, the €399 headphones contain all of Bowers & Wilkins’ audio knowhow. That means over-ear speakers that use specially developed neodymium magnets and highly and equally special diaphragms for the clearest sound and the best natural external noise isolation.

The headphones follow a similar collaboration between the brands which resulted in a Maserati edition of Bowers & Wilkins recording studio-grade loudspeakers. But at €9000 a pair, they would have to be something special.

And, of course Bowers & Wilkins technology is why music sounds so good inside a Maserati. B&W is responsible for the sound systems inside the current Ghibli Quattroporte luxury sports sedans.
