Another winning headphone from Bowers & Wilkins
If you've ever heard the Bowers & Wilkins P5 or P3 headphones, you've experienced their incredibly smooth sound as well as their luxurious fit and design. But perhaps you prefer a larger headphone that blocks out more noise. In that case, you'll want to check out the Bowers & Wilkins P7. These equally stylish headphones are more effective at keeping the outside world at bay by fitting completely over your ears. That keeps more noise out so you get more of those musical details that these headphones deliver with precision, balance, and just the right amount of punch.
Gorgeous looks designed for fashion and function
Like its little brothers, the P7's design is impeccable. With soft leather covering the rectangular earcups and headbands, these 'phones offer long-lasting comfort while being tough enough to withstand everyday wear and tear. In between each earcup and the headband glistens a stainless steel hinge, which allows you to fold the headphones up for storage in the supplied case. So even though the P7 may be larger than the P5 and P3, it's no less portable. They'll definitely turn a few heads when you wear them on the plane or in the office.
Take calls and control music with the built-in remote
If you own an iPod®, iPhone®, or iPad®, you'll make fast friends with the P7's built-in remote and microphone. The three-button remote lets you control music playback and skip tracks while also letting you make easy volume adjustments. If you have an iPhone, you can also answer calls with the remote while the built-in microphone picks up your voice. Naturally, calls will sound crystal clear through the headphones. And their noise-isolating design means it won't be a struggle to hear the person you're talking to.
Removable earpads let you swap cables
Don't own an Apple® device? You can always swap out the installed remote cable for the standard one included with the P7. The earpads, held securely in place by magnets, pull off with just a little effort, granting access to the miniplug connector in the left earpiece.
From our Bowers & Wilkins P7 headphones review:
Often when I'm reviewing headphones, it takes me a little while to warm up to their sound. I'm used to my own headphones, and anything different requires some time for me to adjust to their tonal signature. But I liked the P7 immediately. I found their sound to be very neutral and uncolored, with particular smoothness in the high and low frequencies.
