Focal Elegia Headphones
Product information Get closer to your favourite music wherever you are with the P5 noise-isolating headphones. Drawing on 45 years of Bowers & Wilkins hi-fi innovation and expertise, the P5 headphones bring you remarkably natural and highly detailed sound on the move, and a luxuriously comfortable fit that makes longer listening sessions a pleasure. Behind the P5’s natural sound is some of the most advanced technology ever to be put into a set of headphones. Specially developed neodymium magnets and highly optimised diaphragms keep music sounding rich, pure and incredibly detailed, with no need for artificial adjustments. A closed-back design with rigid metal faceplates and sealed earpads ensures that all the detail and dynamic range of your music is kept intact, while preserving just enough ambient sound to give you a sense of place. These headphones are very easy on the ears, thanks to an ergonomic design and a headband and earpads crafted from the finest quality New Zealand sheep’s leather. Durable and hardwearing, yet remarkably soft and supple, it makes long listening sessions feel more comfortable than ever. The P5’s come with two cables, one with a high quality, gold-plated 3.5mm minijack plug, ideal for use with hi-fi systems, computers or portable players, and one with an on-cable volume control, compatible with the iPod/iPhone, plus a microphone and call accept/end button for hands-free calling on your iPhone. The leather earpads are magnetically attached, and can be quickly removed to swap the supplied cables. Includes carry case.

Every component has undergone cutting-edge research and been meticulously considered.
The sound reproduction is precise and the power is certainly not lacking. Leather, aluminium, microfibre. Materials and its well-mastered geometry give Elegia style, design and timelessness.
Closed Circumaural Design
To enjoy an incredible listening experience in total privacy without worrying about a noisy environment disturbing this moment of pleasure: this is the promise kept by Elegia. These circumaural closed-back headphones incorporate a new generation of exclusive full-range speaker drivers capable of operating in a small inner environment whilst ensuring exceptional dynamics and the most precise sound reproduction.
Whether it’s the motor, the frameless copper voice coil, the dedicated 110-micron surround or the ’M’-shape inverted dome, Elegia’s speaker drivers are a mass of innovation dedicated to sound purity and when connected to portable audio players, these headphones are incredibly high-performing. Zero resonance, excellent soundproofing: the naturalness and realism of the sound are striking from the first few seconds of listening.
Comfort and Elegance
With its well-mastered geometry, Elegia’s headband moulds perfectly to the head, providing optimal grip for on-the-go use. The 20mm memory foam microfibre earpads as well as the yoke, which also moulds perfectly to the wearer’s face shape, are both key contributors to the headphones’ supreme comfort. They are also incredibly good-looking: noble materials such as leather, solid aluminium and microfibre finish off Elegia to a tee.
Exclusive Speaker Drivers
Elegia is equipped with a new generation of electrodynamic transducers which provide great elongation, at the heart of extremely dynamic sound, and a linear, extended frequency response of 23kHz. The geometry of the new, half-roll NBR surrounds guarantees a lightweight moving part that is always under control, even at the lowest frequencies and the highest volumes. The sound reproduction is incredibly precise. And thanks to the ‘M’-shape inverted dome and its larger emissive surface, listening becomes sensational.
The closed-back Elegia headphones allow music lovers to listen to their favourite tracks in total privacy, without disturbing the person next to them, but also to experience sound fully, without the surrounding hustle and bustle hampering this moment of pleasure. No resonance, no unwanted sound signals: Elegia’s soundproofing is perfect. An achievement made possible by our engineers’ meticulous research on the vents and microfibre earpads.
