Bowers & Wilkins P7


The Bower & Wilkins P7, the company's first over-ear headphones, look and sound like a million bucks.

Excellent sound; Very comfortable; Blocks out sound very well; Gorgeous styling; Well-built

Expensive; Carrying case isn't protective enough

Worth the $399? Our eyes say yes, and our ears wholeheartedly agree. Very few headphones compete with the P7 in looks or sound at this price. If you prefer a slightly mellower sound, the Sennheiser Momentum may be a better fit, and if you want bass...

Fantastic cans for a music lover


Got this set after my B&W P5's bit the dust after 3 years. The over the ear design, and revised driver make a huge difference. I have tested these on a number of different devices, and they definitely would benefit greatly from an AMP/DAC. These sound...

I read every review. I went with B&W reputation and they definitely deliver! I love these cans. The sound from these are so good you don't want to take them off. The fit was good for me. Took a week of wearing to break in. My favorite headphones and...

Being a tech junkie and audiophile, I have bought and returned many a headphone. The B&W P7 I will keep. The sound is true to the recordings. The clarity of vocals is great and the balance of highs and lows lets you hear what the recording artist...
