Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wireless

 

The attractive Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wireless headphones deliver a powerful Bluetooth listening experience.

Powerful, vibrant audio performance with excellent bass response and clarity in the highs. Lovely, luxurious design. Includes a cable for passive listening.

Very expensive. Headband can feel a tad uncomfortable on long listening periods. Cable has no inline remote or mic.

Conclusions For $400, the Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wireless sounds, looks, and feels like a luxury product. If you're shopping in this higher price tier, there are plenty of compelling wireless options, so it's worth reading up on the JBL Everest Elite 700...

One of the best luxury headphones you can buy

 

The company's current flagship headphone has a comfortable over-the-ear design and offers richer, more detailed sound than the step-down P5.

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.

Review: Bowers & Wilkins P7 Headphones

 

The P7s are the first over-the-ear headphones B&W has ever made, and of course, the build quality and the choice of materials is exquisite, bordering...

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 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.

If you're hunting in this price range, the excellent Sennheiser Momentum is also a force to reckon with—and it's slightly less expensive with a list price of $350. Perhaps you want something with far less bass and more of a flat response in this price...

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 (B&W P7) HEADPHONES

 

The Bowers & Wilkins P7 are well-built and sturdy headphones. They deliver a good and balanced sound. They're comfortable and have a decently stable design. However, they only block noise passively, which is not sufficient for loud environments, and...

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...
