Bowers & Wilkins cuts the cable on P7 Headphones

Bowers & Wilkins hugely successful P7 headphones have been given a new lease of life, with the announcement of the release of the new P7 Wireless.

The P7 Wireless headphones build upon the original P7 that benefited from acoustic advances found with the original drive units. The new P7 Wireless features Bluetooth aptX connectivity which delivers a seamless audio experience, just like before, but without the cables. The P7 Wireless sets a new standard for on-the-go listening from Bowers & Wilkins.

What's the big deal about wireless? Aside from the convenience of tangle-free listening, ongoing speculation of Apple's possible deletion of the headphone jack means your investment might not be wasted.

Bowers & Wilkins' P7 Wireless can be paired with any of the most popular Bluetooth-enabled devices such as a phone, tablet or computer. Once paired, it’s as simple as switching on and pressing play. Onboard controls are conveniently located on the side.

John Martin, Brand Manager for Bowers & Wilkins in Australia told StereoNET:

P7 Wireless' beating heart is the drive unit, painstakingly developed to unearth every note in your music, allowing discerning users to stream Hi-Fi quality music on the go to a quality never experienced before. P7 Wireless delivers all the highs and lows of your favourite music, while the ultra-soft memory foam cushioning creates a comfortable and high-quality listening experience.

As you would expect the P7 Wireless is crafted from the finest materials, including aluminium 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.

Bowers & Wilkins says you can expect 17 hours of wireless playback from the rechargeable battery. The P7 Wireless are easily charged from a supplied USB cable.

P7 Goes Wireless

John continued:

P7 Wireless is a welcome addition to the growing collection of headphones from Bowers & Wilkins. Worn over the ear, with the added comfort and noise blocking of memory foam cushions, they follow in the footsteps of the on-ear P5 Wireless, both made with the same knowledge and experience in acoustic excellence that only Bowers & Wilkins can deliver.

Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wireless will be available from September 2016 for $599.95 RRP.

To coincide with this release, Australia's Bowers & Wilkins distributor, Convoy, have also announced substantial price reductions across their entire headphone range. Speak to your local dealer for pricing.
