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...

Expensive and restrained

Wonderful sound ; Replaceable parts ; Good looks and build

Poor audio isolation ; Not everyone will find them comfortable ; Merciless with poor rips

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

The Bowers & Wilkins P7 are classy headphones with the sort of construction most other sets can only dream of. Sound quality is bettered by open-back sets, but they’re portable headphone royalty. As long as you don’t work on a building site – noise...

A whole new world of sound!


I use the P7 headphones to listen to music on my laptop. The sound is WAY better than hooking it up to my stereo system. Sometimes I rather use it because I can work on my music late into the night. (Playing an amp through headphones or recording...

Great Headphone under $400


P7 is the best value headphone I have had so far. I am not an audiophile in any sense, but I own several pairs of headphones, Sennheiser MM550, HDR 160, IE 8, and Bose QC 15. First of all, compared to other products from other brands, P7\'s build...

Great balanced headphone with superb details


The P7's are very detailed in sound, and is great for hearing the brass, strings, and other intricate instruments without it being drowned out by heavy bass.

Superb Headphones


I am older (57) and hard of hearing (I wear hearing aids but not when I listen to music). I have two pair of moderately priced ($100 - $150) Audio-Technica and AKG headphones and have never been pleased with their sound quality when compared to my...
