Renowned hi-fi manufacturer Bowers & Wilkins has finally entered the mobile headphone market fray with its P7 over-the-ear headset. Drawing on a long history of loudspeaker development, the company’s designers have developed new drivers to deliver precise, controlled movement – and the end result, we’re told, is stunning, natural sound from these headphones.
Loudspeaker-like damping material inside the speaker enclosure helps cut out any internal reflections. Dual-cavity cushion ear pads increase comfort and isolation from outside noise and ensure a more consistent volume of air between the drive unit and ear on both sides of the head. The brushed stainless steel, leather-encased headband and ears pads make the P7 headphones comfortable to wear.
