Every element of P7 has been designed to raise the bar for portable hi-fi sound. The very best components, finest materials and impeccable build quality together offer uncompromising performance and luxurious comfort. The most important element of P7's performance is its new driver – designed less like traditional headphones, more like a hi-fi speaker. The result is performance with a wonderful sense of space, balance and clarity across the frequency range, and greater precision than ever.
Like a Speaker
Remove, Replace, Renew
The P7 driver diaphragm borrows from Bowers & Wilkins traditional speaker design. The result is more precise, controlled movement, and a giant leap forward in headphone sound quality. P7 earpads are held in place with magnets. So you can easily detach them to change the cable, or replace them if they get damaged. Why replace your favourite headphones if all you need is a new cable?
The leather pads keep a consistent volume of air around drive units, enhancing stereo imaging. They also deliver a more comfortable fit and block outside noise for truly immersive audio. P7 – Hi-Fi sound quality that's portable. Solid metal hinges above the earcups create a foldable form factor. Stored safely in its quilted case, P7 is surprisingly portable.
Uncompromising quality is found in every engineering detail. Unique vented speaker baskets control airflow precisely, while innovative damping materials and baffles cut resonance, reflection and distortion. The results are breathtaking. P7 is crafted from the finest materials, including aluminium and sheepskin leather, not just for performance but also luxury and durability. P7 earpads will remain comfortable for the longest of listening sessions.
Damping Material Metal End-Plates Speaker-like Drive Units Leather
Damping material inside the speaker enclosure helps control and dampen internal reflections, further reducing coloration and distortion of sound.
Embossed brushed aluminium ovals signifying Bowers & Wilkins stamp of quality and attention to detail are placed on each ear-pad. Understated yet definitive, a mark of distinction.
The internal speaker baskets are perforated with air vents covered with a resistive film allowing for precise control of the air-flow, resulting in a more uniform movement.
The over-ear design and snugly-fitting ear pads ensure P7 completely envelops you in sound, the genuine sheepskin leather making for uncompromising quality, fit and feel.
