Not everyone can afford to own a Maserati. However, Maserati headphones are a bit more doable.
That’s because Bowers & Wilkins has priced its new P5 Maserati Edition Mobile Hi-Fi Headphone at just $399.99. That said, these aren’t really the kind of headphones you’d throw into your gym bag.
The P5 is the latest collaboration between Maserati and B&W. The two companies previously worked together on the $10,000 805 Maserati Edition loudspeaker, as well as B&W’s audio systems for the Maserati Ghibli and the Quattroporte.
Promising an immersive experience from a portable package, the P5 features fine-grain natural leather with the Maserati Trident emblem on the headband. It also comes with its own travel pouch.
On the inside, it has B&W’s Diamond Dome Tweeter, ultra-linear neodymium magnets, and highly optimized Mylar diaphragms. Also worth noting is this set’s noise isolation features, which come via sealed-leather ear pads and a closed-back design. The cable even has speech and device control for iOS devices.
Bowers & Wilkins P5 Maserati Edition headphones are available in-stores and online, for $399.95.
