Bowers & Wilkins today introduced the P7 Wireless over-ear luxury-class headphones, which add Bluetooth to the original wired P7 headphones. Although they look exactly the same, the company says they have improved the original P7 audio drivers. Bass is said to be tighter, vocals more defined, along with a pleasant sense of space, balance and clarity across the whole frequency range. $400 is the buy-in, now only a $50 price premium over their non-wired predecessor.
P7 Wireless uses aptX Bluetooth technology and should pair in seconds with any of the most popular Bluetooth-enabled devices such as a phone, tablet or computer. Once paired, operation should be as simple as switching on and pressing play.
Playback is elegantly managed via intuitive on-board controls, and a rechargeable battery offers a robust 17-hours of wireless playback, and can be easily charged via USB. For times when a cable is required, one comes supplied in the box.
P7 Wireless is crafted from fine materials, including aluminum and sheep leather, for performance, luxury and durability. The headphones are foldable, making them easy to travel with, while the luxurious design continues with a carry case that keeps your P7 Wireless safe when not in use.
Price and Availability
The Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wireless headphones are now available online direct from the company, and will be in retail locations by Sept. 15, 2016 for $399.99.
