On the Radar

Reveals, New Launches and Gear

Bowers and Wilkins P5 Wireless

We have been huge fans of Bowers and Wilkins‘ P5 headphones and quite frankly didn’t think they could get much better. Until we heard that they were making them wireless. They took the same Bluetooth technology that helped deliver high-quality sound to the T7 and amped it up for the P5. The P5 is capable of producing the highest-quality sound that your device drivers can output whether it be a smartphone, laptop or tablet. They also feature intuitive controls that make it easy to pick up a call, skip tracks and play/pause. And the P5 Wireless’s dual microphones will provide quality sound when speaking on the phone, whereas other wireless headphones’ microphones are typically a letdown.

La Passione is taking Italian-designed, Italian-made cycling gear and bringing it to a direct-to-consumer model. By eliminating the middle man, la Passione’s jerseys are just as good as the ones you see in high-end bike shops, but at a fraction of the cost.
