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 \x93fancy\x94 in the way one would speak of a Bentley or a Morgan. It...

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 \x97 all that hand-stitched leather ain\x92t cheap. Designed for portability and isolation, so unless you have a noisy home, they aren\x92t 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.

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

'They\x92re transparent enough to show up any poor, compressed recordings, Cable could be longer for more practical use at home'

'Best portable on-ears \xa3300+, Awards 2013. Great headphones \x96 the P7s still set the standard at this price'

Headphone royalty, but at what price?

Top sound quality, (Mostly) Excellent build quality

'Expensive, Sound bettered by \x91at home\x92 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.
