Product Description

Style Name:P7

Product Description

P7 provides a truly immersive sound, combined with the luxurious comfort and impeccable build quality you expect from Bowers & Wilkins.

Total Immersion - With P7, everything is designed to allow you to lose yourself in music. Bass is tight, vocals are precisely defined, and there's a wonderful sense of space, balance and clarity across the whole frequency range. At the same time, the over-ear design and snugly-fitting ear pads ensure you become completely immersed in your listening. Because when you're hearing sound this good, you don't want anything to interrupt your enjoyment

Speaker Inspired Drivers - With P7, we have created a headphone driver that works more like the drive unit in a hi-fi speaker, with a diaphragm focussed purely on the job it's supposed to do: generate sound. Which means a drive unit with a more precise, controlled movement - and a giant leap forward in sound quality

Dual Cavity Ear Pads - The FP7's ear pads feature a dual cavity cushion design that helps the pads mould to the contours of the wearer's head. This design maintains a consistent volume of air between the drive unit and the surface of the ear at both sides of the head. Not only is stereo imaging enhanced, but the sound is optimised for every listener

Finest materials - We've cut no corners in terms of build quality and our choice of materials. Moving parts and back plates are constructed from brushed and stainless steel, as is the ingenious folding mechanism. The logo plates are crafted from brushed aluminium. The headband and ear pads are encased in luxuriously soft leather, making them a delight to wear even for long listening sessions.

Performance meets design - As Bowers & Wilkins first over-the-ear headphones we were able to maximise P7's acoustic properties. But we wanted to ensure P7 was wearable and portable, so thanks to an ingenious new folding mechanism using a highly durable stainless steel hinge, P7 folds up like a pair of sunglasses, and comes with a soft-cover carry case perfect for messenger bags or briefcases

Made for iPhone - P7's cable comes with a remote/microphone attachment, so it works seamlessly with your iPhone. And because the cable is so easy to detach and swap, P7 is also compatible with all other mobile phones and MP3 players

Note:For comfort whilst wearing headphone,ensure that the headphones are orientated correctly, with the headband adjusted to a suitable size and the ear cushions centred over your ear canals.

Style Name: P7
A few years ago, I bought B&W's first headphones, the P5 - I use B&W's speakers in my home hi-fi system, and I like both the sound and the build quality, so I was interested to see how they would do with headphones.

The P5 sounded great, but I found them almost unbearably uncomfortable to wear; they clamped your head extremely tightly to achieve noise reduction, and the pressure on your ears was just too much, so I hardly use them. When I saw that B&W were bringing out a version of the P5 which sat around the ears instead of on them, I was hopeful that this would give me both the sound quality and comfort.

Having owned a pair for a few days now, I am delighted to say that they do - the P7 is a joy to wear for extended periods of time. The ear cushions are perhaps less soft than on some competitors, but the lack of clamping force makes up for it. The headphones are comparatively light in weight, which helps a great deal in terms of comfort, and you do genuinely forget you are wearing them after a few minutes.

The sound quality is, if anything, better than the P5 - deep, solid bass and well-integrated treble that doesn't sear your eardrums like some cheaper headphones. It's not as good as listening to a pair of B&W speakers, but it's pretty close. The headphone amp built into an iPhone or iPad can drive them to ear-damaging volumes - I've not yet tried them with my hi-fi and lossless files, but AAC files from my iPhone sound superb.

The build quality is as good as on the P5 - leather and anodized aluminium on the phones themselves (the black anodized earpieces look particularly classy) and a real leather storage pouch with a concealed magnetic clasp. The P5 cable was on the flimsy side; this is much improved on the P7.

I really can't find anything to fault on these headphones; yes, they aren't cheap, but they are beautifully-built, extremely comfortable, easy to drive and sound superb. Recommended without reservation.

I have now had these headphones for almost a month and I'm pleased to say that I'm not disappointed in the least. I already own a pair of Grado SR325is which are great, but they're open backed, so using them in the office or on the train is not really an option. I spent huge amounts of time researching these and managed to listen to a pair which were on display in a department store (even it was just on my HTC One) and I was suitably impressed.
I've now paired them with a Fiio X5 and have given both products a good burn in period. These two products complement each other extremely well and give a slightly warm sound which is nice and bassy (not too much) and give excellent separation over a wide sound stage and the detail is superb. You know you're on to a good thing when you're able to notice detail in your music that you've not noticed before.
I listen to a very diverse range of music from death metal to 80's music, electronica, opera, classical, indie and so on. I've been very impressed with the results that these headphones produce. The isolation is pretty good and even at moderate to fairly load volumes your sounds remain private on the whole. To get the most out of them, I'd recommend (perhaps obviously) a decent player and the use of high quality music files (FLAC or ALAC at least) so that you'll fully be able to appreciate what a wonderful product B&W have created here.
The build quality is also superb all round, and they look great; faultless for the money in my opinion. I can wholeheartedly recommend this product.
If I was to compare the P7s to my Grado 325is: I'd say that the Grado's provide a more open spacious sound, while the P7's are warmer and a bit more bassy. They're both great, but if I had to pick, I think that the P7's would (just) win out. Only just though...

My day-to-day headphones are £900 custom IEMs from Heir Audio, the 8.A. I usually play these through an HRT microstreamer offboard DAC / headphone amp. I was looking for something with a relatively affordable price that I could use over the ear at home (sub £500, said price being relative to my 8.As as no doubt some would consider £329 anything but affordable) . I wanted something easy to get on and off my head - inserting and removing custom IEMs is not a 1 second operation. Anyway, needless to say, these P7s had some serious audiophile competition to live up to.

I'd listened to both the P3 and P5s. and frankly, they both suck. I was not impressed. I went to audition the P7s with my DAC and my Heir 8.As in hand and a whole bunch of FLACs. I was simply amazed by the clarity. The treble and mids are perfectly clear with no hint of harshness and the bass is tight and powerful. Overall presence and punch lacks a little by comparison to my 8.As but not a huge amount and I was alternating between the two to compare the sound on each track I played. Given the nature of my custom IEMs, I'd be very disappointed if they were not superior to the P7s. But, do the P7s lack £600 of quality? Hell no. These cans, despite costing north of £300, still punch way above their price range and are astounding for a closed cup design. And now having purchased them and listened to them for longer, my impression is only reinforced. Their sound is neutral and requires no EQ adjustment, the mark of a good pair of cans as far as I am concerned.

As an added bonus, they are so luxurious that wearing them feels positively decadent. Swathes of leather and stylish design coupled with hours-long comfort. You won't be disappointed if you opt for these.
