About B&W PI7 In-Ear Headphones

The B&W PI7 in ear headphones are a premium solution for those looking for the best sound, best comfort and best build quality out there. They are beautifully designed and feel good in the hand and great in the ears. The case is very cool and not only features wireless charging but also has the ability to transmit Bluetooth to the PI7 (or other B&W headphones) from products that don’t have Bluetooth connectivity.

B&W PI7 In-Ear Headphones

True Wireless (TWS) In-Ear Headphones are immensely popular, but most currently available designs represent a compromise choice, one that trades sound quality for wireless convenience. Bowers & Wilkins has always insisted this issue would need to be addressed before the company could consider launching its own TWS products.

Now, after an extensive period of development, Bowers & Wilkins is proud to bring the brand’s famous True Sound promise of absolute performance to the True Wireless In-Ear Headphone category. The PI7 offers all the sound quality that music lovers have come to expect from a Bowers & Wilkins products, coupled to an extensive array of smart and convenience features, exceptional call quality and beautiful, premium design.

The flagship PI7 supports Qualcomm aptX Adaptive wireless transmission from compatible mobile devices, allowing for high-resolution music transmission from suitable streaming services, such as Tidal. PI7 backs that high-resolution capability with 24-bit/48kHz wireless transmission between each earbud. Together, these two technologies make PI7 one of very few True Wireless headphones able to support High-Resolution audio all the way from your music source to your ears.

In addition, while the enclosure of each PI7 is compact enough to fit comfortably in the ear, each earbud has a specification remarkably close to that of an advanced conventional loudspeaker. Each features a 9.2mm bespoke Bowers & Wilkins drive unit, joined by a high-frequency ‘balanced armature’ driver, with each of the four drive units in the system (two in each earbud) actively driven by its own amplifier. This configuration ensures exceptional control, superlative dynamics and deep, accurate bass.

PI7 also features Adaptive Noise Cancellation to automatically monitor, analyse and adapt to its surroundings to produce the best possible experience. That ANC system is paired with six microphones – three in each earbud – for crystal-clear sound quality during phone calls.

B&W PI7 Smart Features

The PI7 can be configured via the Bowers & Wilkins companion App and has a simple one-button user interface – a single capacitive button that can perform multiple tasks simply and elegantly – coupled to voice assistant support via either Siri or Google Assistant, depending on the connected device.

Multiple source devices can be wirelessly paired to the PI7, allowing the user to easily and conveniently reconnect to each source as and when needed – such as quickly switching from music on a phone to an online conference call on a laptop.

And the PI7 offers the convenience of wireless recharging compatible with a wide range of suitable accessories such as a Qi charger, plus a charging case that can recharge each earbud once its built-in battery life is exhausted. PI7 will operate for four hours before it requires a recharge, with the case offering up to four full recharges – so you’ll always have plenty to entertain you on that long trip.

Speaking of which, PI7 also offers a genuinely unique feature that will make longer journeys easier to cope with: its Smart charging case can connect to an external audio source – such as an in-flight entertainment system – by 3.5mm or USB cable and then wirelessly retransmit audio from that source to the earbuds, all in outstanding quality.

In The News

“It's not even the technical wizardry that's breaking new ground here; this is the first time I've ever seen dual-driver technology in a true-wireless release. Sporting a juicy big 9.2mm dynamic for everything low, with a balanced armature driver for everything high - this is the type of arrangement we find in high-end custom moulded IEMs (not something you can wirelessly connect to your smartphone). Sound-wise, they're tuned closely to the B&W signature sound we've become accustomed to. If you've listened to the PX7, you'll have an idea of what to expect here; but this time around, the bass reaches that little bit deeper, and there's an extra bit of sparkle up top as well.

The dynamic driver delivers surprisingly punchy and deep bass, tight midbass kicks and no muddiness as far as the eye can see. It's a bass response that's clean, natural and driving, with plenty of punchy energy but not enough to be overpowering. It's a full-bodied, warm sound with plenty of air and detail. Not neutral, surgical or flat by any means. Instead, it's a more inviting and engaging listening experience. The selling point here is it’s a sound that will be equally enjoyed in a lounge chair, sipping a glass of wine, as it will be when out and about. We've only spent a short time with the PI7, but it's a state-of-the-art release with enough tech to satisfy even the hardest of hardcore headphone nerds like us. The PI7 is an excellent sounding package, proudly wearing the Bowers & Wilkins logo - we're sold on them!” Stereonet
