Bowers & Wilkins P7 Over Ear Headphones with Mic/Remote

Product information

With P7, everything is designed to allow you to lose yourself in music. Bass is tight, vocals are precisely defined, and there’s a wonderful sense of space, balance and clarity across the whole frequency range. At the same time, the over-ear design and snugly-fitting ear pads ensure you become completely immersed in your listening. Because when you’re hearing sound this good, you don’t want anything to interrupt your enjoyment.

    Hi-Fi sound
    With P7, the drivers work more like the drive unit in a hi-fi speaker, with a diaphragm focussed purely on the job it’s supposed to do: generate sound. Which means a drive unit with a more precise, controlled movement.

    Superior fit
    The ear pads feature a dual cavity cushion design that helps the pads mould to the contours of your head. This design maintains a consistent volume of air between the drive unit and the surface of the ear at both sides of the head.

    Leather, aluminium and steel
    Moving parts and back plates are constructed from brushed and stainless steel. The logo plates are crafted from brushed aluminium. The headband and ear pads are encased in luxuriously soft leather, making them a delight to wear even for long listening sessions.

    Foldable design
    Thanks to an ingenious new folding mechanism using a highly durable stainless steel hinge, P7 folds up like a pair of sunglasses, and comes with a soft-cover carry case perfect for messenger bags or briefcases.

    Phone friendly
    The cable comes with a remote/microphone attachment, so it works seamlessly with your iPhone. And because the cable is so easy to detach and swap, P7 is also compatible with all other mobile phones and MP3 players.

Q & As

B&W P7 Over Ear Headphones with Mic/Remote 5 5 8 8
Private Bliss. I purchased a set of B&W P7's as a birthday present to myself and I am very glad that I did. The headphones are beautifully made and look, and feel, a class act. Not only that, they sound wonderful - just the right amount of warmth to the sound coupled with a brightness and clarity which can transport you to a fine level of "private bliss". An indulgence - but there are those times when it is worth it to put on headphones of this quality and simply slip away - and this is one of them!! If I had to make a comment then I find the cable a little on the short side and also the volume control is too close to the headphone for easy use other than that they are the sort of quality one would expect from an British Company at this price. 01 October 2014
Amazing Sound I previously had the P5s, which in themselves are excellent headphones. The P7s lift the phonics to a whole different level. Such clarity and precision, nuances Ive never heard before in well listened to tracks. More comfortable than the P5s to wear - build quality is premie 05 August 2014
WoooooooooH Just bought B&W P7 headphones from John Lewis' store at Trafford Park. Read the reviews that were all excellent but after travelling 65 miles to buy the headphones, on seeing them, I must admit I had a slight concern that they looked a tad bulky. However, after some deliberation and little persuading by my partner I decided to buy them. Now, on reflection, this has to be one of the best decisions I have made for some time. As a lover of music the P7 headphones have taken the listening of music, for me, to another level. They are, without exaggeration, truly fantastic. They look expensive and the sound quality is truly amazing. Therefore, if you are considering buying headphones in the very near future, in my opinion, you will definitely find no better. They are superb. 06 May 2014
Bowers and Wilkins P7's Excellent sound quality the balance is perfect. Build quality superb, leather and anodised aluminium. Previously owned the P5's and these are a big step up in performance and far more comfortable when worn for prolonged periods. 15 April 2014
Superb headphones I'd seen various (glowing) reviews for these headphones - and I can now understand why. The sound from them is excellent - they do perhaps stray slightly towards accentuating the bass, but it makes for an engaging and lively presentation (and nowhere near as exaggerated as the more fashion oriented brands). The build quality is also superb and they feel very comfortable on. Once removed, they fold into a very nice carry pouch too, which reduces their size a bit for carrying around. The only thing I've struggled with is the cable remote, which can be quite tricky to use by feel as it doesn't give a lot of tactile feedback (and sits very close to the headphones). If you are looking to block out the rest of the world, be aware that they don't isolate you from external noise as much as some (which can be both a plus and a minus). They don't leak sound though, so those around you won't be bothered by your musical choice. They are not the cheapest headphones, but I feel that they are worth every penny. 25 March 2014
Wonderful!! I have recently upgraded from P5 to P7 headphones. I was very happy with the P5s but when B&W released the P7s I went to listen to them and did a comparison with my P5s. After listening to several of my favourite tracks I came to a rather easy conclusion - the P7s were incredible. Much better than the P5s, they really were that good. The P7s are not only well made from top notch materials, they raise the bar over the P5s. They provide a clarity and depth thats very impressive. Bass is well handled and is not found wanting. Yes, the case could be better, but these headphones are so good they don't spend much time in the case. They are very comfortable to wear for a long period of time. So buy, relax and enjoy!! 15 February 2014
Really Special Sound I've been wearing these every day on my commute for 2 months and the sound is utterly exceptional. I tried other sets on but these were clearly the best. I've been driving them from an iPhone which has worked perfectly. 25 November 2013
Quality and Performance Everything about these headphones, give of the impression of class and quality. As opposed the P5, that are a fantastic set of headphones, that sit on the ear, the P7, covers the ear. They are a great fit and very comfortable. In terms of the sound, it is a revelation on the iPhone and iPad, Bass is deep and not at all overloaded and the treble not harsh. All I would say is try before you buy, but for me they are the best in class. The only disappointment is the carry case, it is not as sturdy as it should be. 02 October 2013
