This headphone is although new, but not exactly new. This is stated because apart from the colour change, i.e. from silver to black there are no such visible changes. This version resembles completely with the original P5 and cost around $299.99. From the inner portion, the latest P5 series comes with a driver, which is in sync with the P7 driver, an over-the-ear model.

There are individuals for whom the earphone fits too snugly initially, but the headband flexing leads to pressure release.

Unlike the normal headphone, P5 does not contain the headphone input jack at the base. However, the connection is built via the driver and it can be accessed by a simple tug that adheres magnetically.
