Bowers and Wilkins P7 headphones review

Tony Ibrahim | July 8, 2014
Leather has been liberally used on the P7 headphones. It drapes the large headband and cushions the over-the-ear cups. The cups press right up against the scalp, but much like leather shoes that take shape over time, the P7's cups will too mould.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers' Otherside is ripe for the P7's. Every instrument is rendered with such clarity that its easy to pinpoint the drums, symbols, bass and electric guitar at any time with ease. Your foot to tap; your fingers will dance and your head will bob subconsciously, partly because the track is catchy, but also because the P7's can be trusted to play iconic tunes justly.

Switch the genre to R&B and all frequencies continue their harmonious flow. SoMo's Ride is one such example where the bass complements the soundstage rather than dominating. Music lovers keen on exaggerated bass best tune the equaliser in favour of the low-end, or pursue alternative headphones from Monster or Beats by Dre.

Final thought

Bowers and Wilkin's P7s sit amongst the best electronics products Good Gear Guide has had the fortune of reviewing. The design is exceptional in its beauty while retaining supreme functionality — these are large over-the-ear headphones that fold away for mobile use.

Matching the mind-blowing achievement in design is its audio prowess. Music is loud, clear and enveloping no matter the song and the genre. Wear them and you'll discover that magical dimension where nothing else exists other than you and a song.
