The Truffle Pairing Costs Extra


In the vast jungle of fancy headphones, some trees stand taller than others. The Bowers & Wilkins P7 , a gorgeous $400 pair of over-the-ear headphones, is one such specimen. I use “fancy” in the way one would speak of a Bentley or a Morgan. It gets you...

Excellent sound; a big bottom without sacrificing anything up top. Wonderful clarity. Comfortable, with beautiful leather and stylish design notes. They fold up nicely. User-serviceable pads, cables, and drivers

Price — all that hand-stitched leather ain’t cheap. Designed for portability and isolation, so unless you have a noisy home, they aren’t as desirable for home listening

Bowers & Wilkins P7 review


Clear, vividly detailed treble, Warm, powerful bass response, Excellent dynamic expression, Great passive noise isolation, Gorgeous, luxurious design

Glosses over some instrumental tone quality, Expensive

The Bowers & Wilkins P7 match their elegant and graceful design with a luscious display of clarity, power, and dynamic expression that was a joy to explore. We would absolutely love to have these phones as our go-to choice both for travelling, as well...

Bowers & Wilkins P7 Headphones Preview


Bowers & Wilkins has released their new P7 headphones. These are the flagship of the B&W headphone line. We had a chance to A/B with them the rest of the B&W line and they are clearly the best.

B&W P7 review


With executive looks, luxury build quality and peerless audio pedigree are the B&W P7 headphones worth the wallet-haemorrhaging price tag?

Soft leather ; Brilliantly built ; Epic sound

Price ; Large headband ; Less than portable

Even in this post-Beats by Dr. Dre world £330 is a hefty price to pay for a pair of headphones, but the B&W P7 offer a class-topping combination of premium materials and durability, comfort, timeless style and phenomenal sound quality.

Bowers & Wilkins P7


Headphone royalty, but at what price?

Top sound quality, (Mostly) Excellent build quality

Expensive, Sound bettered by ‘at home’ sets at price, Mediocre isolation, Jack construction needs a tweak

B&W P7


Best portable on-ears £300+, Awards 2013. An ambitious pair of headphones for B&W, but that ambition pays off in spades

Solid build quality ; Comfortable fit ; Good noise isolation ; Sensational detail and dynamics ; Rhythm-driven delivery

They’re transparent enough to show up any poor, compressed recordings

The P7s are an ambitious pair of headphones for B&W – they’ve gone big on design but even bigger on performance which puts them right up with the frontrunners for class-leading status.
