Bowers & Wilkins P7 review: One of the best luxury headphones you can buy

 

Bowers & Wilkins has been on a quest in recent years to expand its brand from the "classic" audiophile realms of living room stereo and home theater to the more growth-friendly audio categories of the post-smartphone era -- namely, wireless speakers...

The Bowers & Wilkins P7 offers impressive build quality, good comfort, and smooth, rich, well-balanced sound in an over-the-ear headphone design that shuts out a lot of external noise. The earpads are removable and there's an extra cable with a...

Expensive; leather earpads will cause your ears to get steamy on warmer days; some remote features may not work with Android or Windows devices.

The Bowers & Wilkins P7 may not the best headphone you can buy in its luxury price range, but it certainly is among the best, with excellent build quality and rich sound that works well with a wide range of music genres and sources.

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

 

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...

Bowers & Wilkins P7 Mobile Hi-Fi Headphones

 

The Bowers & Wilkins P7 headphones combine top-notch audio performance with a luxurious design, and despite a high price, earn our Editors' Choice.

Superb sound at normal listening levels. Luxurious black leather and aluminum design

Distorts slightly at top volumes on tracks with intense sub-bass content

Bowers & Wilkins was one of the first luxury/hi-fi audio brands to begin offering more affordable speakers and headphones. Of course, "more affordable" is a relative term—B&W's in-ear and on-ear options start at about $175, and rise steadily through...

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.

Bowers & Wilkins P7 Over-the-Ear Headphones Reviewed

 

When audio-video industry types get together these days, they talk a lot about distribution pipelines. The biggest change to the AV business in more than a generation is the change to the pipeline. Gone is Circuit City. Gone is Ultimate...

The fit and finish of the Bowers & Wilkins P7s are simply first rate ; The P7 headphones are extremely comfortable and super easy to fit on anybody's head ; The P7's over-the-ear design isolates you from outside noise nicely without needing any...

The Bowers & Wilkins P7 is pretty big and wouldn't fit into my briefcase the same way that my Ultimate Ears Reference Monitors or Etymotic Research ER-4s do ; The P7 headphones are too nice and likely too bulky to use as workout headphones

Bowers & Wilkins has found the sweet spot with the P7 headphones. They are comfortable, detailed, dynamic, and musically engaging. They have the ability to resolve music in ways that I've never heard before on tracks that I've listened to hundreds (if...
