For $500, you can buy a lot of things, and if you’re into enjoying your music, that amount will net you a fancy set of new headphones from Bowers & Wilkins and...Maserati ?
You read that right; the Italian automaker is tying up with one of the most well-known headphones brands in the world. The special edition set, called the P5 Maserati Edition Mobile Hi-Fi Headphones is more than just a fancy fashion accessory; it’s got some sick specifications that should justify the insane price tag attached to it.
Bowers & Wilkins took advantage of the setting up the P5 to perform as advertised, thanks to its award-winning technology that features ultra-linear neodymium magnets and highly optimized Mylar diaphragms. For a comfortable and luxurious fit, Maserati was in charge of dressing up the headphones with fine-grain natural leather to go with a deep blue shade and the iconic Maserati Trident emblem incorporated on the sides of the ear cups.
The headphones really fit the lifestyle of those who enjoy their luxury accessories. It’s actual retail price is £330, which is about $540 based on current exchange rates.
