Bowers & Wilkins and car manufacturer Maserati have partnered to bring you a special-edition pair of P5 portable headphones. The company's already share a good working relationship, with the audio brand providing tuned in-car audio systems for the Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte cars, and having previously released an Maserati Edition 805 loudspeaker.
Now Maserati Edition P5 Mobile Hi-Fi Headphones have been launched. The on-ear 'phones feature the same audio performance that prompted Pocket-lint to award them four-and-a-half stars in April 2010, claiming that "they are fantastic headphones" at the time, but come with iconic Masterati Trident emblem on the headband and sport the car brand's famed racing blue colour scheme. An exclusive quilted leather travel pouch adorned with the emblem is also included.
The headphones come with an Apple-friendly Made For iPhone cable, with in-line microphone and remote. It features gold-plated connectors and is sturdy. The earpads are made from sealed-leather, so although there is no active noise cancellation, they do a very good job with noise isolation, moulding over your ears.
The Bowers & Wilkins P5 Maserati Edition heaphones are available now for £329.99 from select retailers and the company's website at bowers-wilkins.co.uk.
