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. Both founders agreed right from the start to live modestly and reinvest all their profits in the company with the aim of developing the perfect loudspeaker…

Bowers & Wilkins PI7

Premium True Wireless In-Ears

Bowers & Wilkins like to take their time in the innovation race and do not always try to jump on the technology-driven bandwagon immediately. Better late and done properly was what I thought when B&W announced the first True Wireless in-ears in their range with...

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

The Bowers & Wilkins PI7 are impressive. Even if the price of just under 400 euros seems high at first, the first True Wireless in-ears from the long-established English manufacturer are worth the money. The sound raises the bar for their competitors and revises (my) prejudice that TWS earphones are not good enough for pure music enjoyment. What was also pleasing was the option of audio streaming via USB as well as mini-jack cable. So the PI7s offer wireless listening from the TV and can be used as playback devices for on-board systems on planes and trains, and even media creators could get used to incorporating True Wireless headphones into their work process thanks to the USB streaming function. A convincing debut in the true-wireless market!

Bowers & Wilkins PI7

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.
