Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature Headphone is new Flagship

Bowers & Wilkins just announced their most ambitious, expensive, and best sounding headphone yet, called the P9 Signature. The $900 over-ear wired headphone claims a unique and superior audio experience with precision at high frequencies and astonishing bass. Engineered by the same team responsible for their flagship 800 D3 loudspeaker, P9 Signature is Bowers & Wilkins’ largest over-ear headphone and exemplifies all of the acoustic and design innovation amassed during its 50-year journey.

Part of this crystal-clear listening experience is created through the innovative placement of the transducer, which is positioned to provide a more natural listening experience. The wearer hears sound as if they are listening to a pair of stereo speakers rather than headphones, with a sense of imaging, depth and clarity that claims to be truly breath taking.

The headband adds strength, but is cleverly decoupled from each ear cup, stopping unwanted vibration from distorting the sound while also offering the very best in comfort. This is similar in both thinking and in material choice to the approach used in the latest generation of 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers.

The finest materials have been used for each component of P9 Signature – nothing is off the shelf, everything is custom. Every element has been designed by Bowers & Wilkins engineers to work seamlessly together to create the highest-quality listening experience.

The headphones are crafted from Italian Saffiano leather, using a ‘stamping’ technique that gives the material a distinctive cross-hatch finish. Memory foam cushions in the ear pads help isolate noise from the outside world and mould to the shape of the user’s head over time, providing both an acoustic seal and an incredibly comfortable listening experience.

P9 Signature’s aluminum arms make them ideal for music on the move thanks to their innovative foldable design and material choice, which adds greater durability. The luxurious case is the perfect partner for the flagship headphone; crafted from Alcantara with its elegant suede-like feel, and Saffiano leather detail, it will protect the headphones while also reflecting their beauty.

P9 Signature will come with a variety of high performance cables suitable for use at home and on the go. An additional Lightning cable is in development and will be out from early 2017 free of charge to those that have registered their P9 on www.bowers-wilkins.com.

Price and Availability
The Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature headphone will be available for $899.99 USD on October 17th and should be in in retail locations by Oct. 15, 2016. It can be pre-ordered now or purchased direct.
