P7 - a truly immersive sound combined with the luxurious comfort and impeccable build quality you expect from Bowers & Wilkins. We’ve drawn on everything we know about speaker technology and created a new standard for portable hi-fi sound quality.
Every element of P7 has been designed to raise the bar for portable hi-fi sound. The very best components, finest materials and impeccable build quality together offer uncompromising performance and luxurious comfort. The most important element of P7's performance is its new driver – designed less like traditional headphones, more like a hi-fi speaker. The result is performance with a wonderful sense of space, balance and clarity across the frequency range, and greater precision than ever.
Like a speaker
The P7 driver diaphragm borrows from Bowers & Wilkins traditional speaker design. The result is more precise, controlled movement, and a giant leap forward in headphone sound quality.
The leather pads keep a consistent volume of air around drive units, enhancing stereo imaging. They also deliver a more comfortable fit and block outside noise for truly immersive audio.
Uncompromising quality is found in every engineering detail. Unique vented speaker baskets control airflow precisely, while innovative damping materials and baffles cut resonance, reflection and distortion. The results are breathtaking.
Remove, replace, renew
P7 earpads are held in place with magnets. So you can easily detach them to change the cable, or replace them if they get damaged. Why replace your favourite headphones if all you need is a new cable?
P7 – Hi-Fi sound quality that's portable. Solid metal hinges above the earcups create a foldable form factor. Stored safely in its quilted case, P7 is surprisingly portable.
P7 is crafted from the finest materials, including aluminium and sheepskin leather, not just for performance but also luxury and durability. P7 earpads will remain comfortable for the longest of listening sessions.
“Extremely comfortable and simply first rate! They have the ability to resolve music in ways never heard before on tracks that I’ve listened to hundreds of times. Comfortable, detailed, dynamic and musically engaging. A great pair of headphones at the highest quality level.”
“The ultimate cans – The P7s have won every award going and deserve the lot”
“There’s something about the brushed aluminium, soft leather and stainless steel that screams luxury. And the acoustics match, with internals which have more in common with a hi-fi system than a pair of headphones”
"Premium headphones that will appeal to even the most demanding audiophile. Bowers & Wilkins' P7s sit amongst the best electronics products we have had the fortune of reviewing. Matching the mind-blowing achievement in design is its audio prowess; music is loud, clear and enveloping no matter the song and the genre. Wear them and you’ll discover that magical dimension where there's nothing other than you and the music."
“Wear them and you’ll discover that magical dimension where there's nothing other than you and the music.”
"Rarely have we been so impressed by a first listen. The B&W P7s - thanks to the large 40mm dynamic drivers - create a fantastically open sound, Reproduction is supremely detailed and well balanced coping with the lowest frequencies and highest ranges with utter class. The P7 offers a class-topping combination of premium materials and durability, comfort, timeless style and phenomenal sound quality."
"The sound quality is absolutely fantastic. Tremendously rewarding headphones to wear at home or in a quiet office – headphones you wear when you want to sink into music as into a hot bath"
“Bowers & Wilkins has produced the Maserati of over-the-ear headphones.”
Just what I was looking for. High quality sound beautifully finished in leather and elegant touches

These headphones are simply awesome with deep punchy bass which is not overbearing, awesome vocals and decent noise isolation. I was using some Sennheiser MMX550 bluetooth headphones for a couple of years previously and had forgotten how good a 'proper' set of wired cans could sound. These have actually renewed my desire for listening to music!
On the weekend Prince died, I spent all weekend listening to his songs on repeat - do yourself a favour and listen to an uncompressed version of Little Red Corvette on a pair of these.
My only criticism is that the headband does seem to give me a bit of a headache after a while, but I'm fully prepared to believe this is due to the shape of my head.

My new P7 headphones arrived right on time and sound amazing! Now I can listen to movies and music at a decent volume without waking the rest of the family :-)

My initial reaction on opening the box was how elegant and beautifully engineered the P7’s were. Top-grade materials and a sturdy single cable that I immediately loved.
Having owned a pair of P3’s and C5 Series 2 I was expecting quality audio and the P7’s were nothing but amazing. Instantly I was hearing detail that I didn’t know existed on my favourite tracks and was excited at the thought of all the music collection sounding fresh and even new. I was concerned that the size of them maybe an issue but in fact they feel incredibly light and very comfortable, excellent for rambling around the countryside.
I am using the headphones with an iPod Classic acoustically enhanced with an Oppo HA-2 and the combination is out of this world, simply amazing.

These headphones are well designed and built. There is nothing flimsy about them. I've only used them with my iPhone and iPad, but the latter includes some Apple lossless tracks (which to be honest makes little difference). Their sound is very good, being well balanced across high, mid and low frequencies, and they are as good for quiet classical as for hard rock. Being on-ear phones my wife tells me there is minimal sound leakage. My only negative comment relates to the tightness of the phones on my head; my ears feel clamped and I would not want to use these for more than an hour at a time.

Purchased thinking that b&w had to be good but very disappointed when i used them, headband was much too tight and frankly i thought the sound was no better than average, there are loads of them on ebay second hand so plenty of others must feel the same, sold mine after two weeks.
