Bowers & Wilkins P7


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.

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...

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...

Great Upgrade From Previous Headphones


My "Primary Use" wasn\'t mentioned: Home audio (more than just an iPod). These are when I want headphones instead of my Yamaha-driven Magnaplanar speakers. These headphones are an upgrade to my previous Senheissers. The build quality of these are...

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...
