Bowers&Wilkins P7 Wireless Headphone Review

With the B&W P7 Wireless, Bowers have made a great little portable headphone, with a fun and engaging sound signature in an understated, yet executive look.

Pros:

  • Engaging sound
  • Superior build quality
  • Comfortable

Cons:

  • Bass may be too strong for some

Design and Appearance

Bowers & Wilkins have stuck with their understated black and silver colour scheme for the B&W P7 Wireless, retaining luxury leather earpads and headband, along with brushed metal faceplates and sliders.

These headphones are the perfect size for a portable over the ear headphone, and they look fantastic, the included carry case will help keep them looking pristine.

Durability and Build Quality

The P7 Wireless look and feel very well built, being made out of leather and metal gives you confidence in their build, along with good strain relief on the included cable.

Ease of use

Pairing these headphones is quick and easy, and once paired they connect instantly, no issues with Bluetooth transmission were encountered.

Comfort

The memory foam, leather earpads are not the biggest but fit snugly around your ears with good cushioning. The clamping force is quite tight but not uncomfortably so, the headband is well padded and evenly distributes the weight over the top of your head, all qualities of a brilliant portable headphone.

Sound

The B&W P7 Wireless lean towards a darker, bassier sound whilst still giving you detailed sound.

  • Bass

This is the first thing you will notice when you put these on, it digs deep with pulsating sub-bass lines, and punchy mid bass. It makes these really good fun to listen to, and also means they keep good bass presence when in noisy environments. The bass is not just there in quantity, the quality is superb and does not overwhelm the rest of the sound.

  • Mids

The mids cut through well separated from the bass, with details in vocals being very easy to pick up on. Surprisingly these do not suffer from bleed from the lows, meaning they cut through cleanly, and the layering between instruments and different vocals is spot on.

  • Treble

These are not bright headphones, they do not have a lot of energy in the treble but what they do have is well positioned highs. They are pinpoint accurate in positioning, and are void of any fatiguing properties, but do take a back seat in the mix.

  • Soundstage and Separation

The soundstage is not huge, but it is very accurate with the ability to hear where instruments are placed in the mix easily. Separation is good, these are a full sounding headphone so they do not fare so well during overly complex pieces of music.

Genres good for and why

The B&W P7 Wireless is perfect for modern pop recordings, along with some EDM, R&B and even some acoustic tracks. This is due to the slightly elevated bass keeping things exciting, and also well textured, and the mids having excellent detail retrieval.

Take a look also at the Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless, with a similar smooth, bass oriented sound and sleek aesthetic.
