Bowers & Wilkins

In 1966 John Bowers and his long-time friend Peter Hayward founded a company in Worthing on the south coast of England called B&W Electronics at the time.

Bowers & Wilkins PX7

Editor's recommendations: Bowers & Wilkins

All round success and a genuine recommendation for all those who expect a high value for money for scarcely 300 euros. The Bowers & Wilkins PX5 are on-ear headphones at the highest technical level, which is right at the top when it comes to sound. The Bowers & Wilkins PX5 shows their strengths both as travel headphones, and as a constant companion in everyday urban life between open-plan offices, underground trains and cafés.

Bowers & Wilkins PX5

As with its on-ear counterpart, I would give a clear letter of recommendation to the PX7. Where the PX7 loses out for me is the price, since it does not justify the extra 100 EUR on top of the cost of the on-ear model. The competition for the PX5 comes from in-house. But if you want an ear–enclosing version of the current Bowers & Wilkins headphones, you can’t go wrong with the PX7.

The PI4 from Bowers & Wilkins are high quality Bluetooth in-ears with very good sound, many useful features, codecs, and a good app. The adaptive noise reduction may be a bit more restrained than some people would like. The workmanship and appearance are top notch, with a touch of luxury just as you would expect from headphones by Bowers & Wilkins.
