British audio manufacturer Bowers & Wilkins has finally unveiled its latest and first pair of high-end over-ear headphones, the Bowers & Wilkins P7 over-ear headphones.
These headphones feature ear pads encased in leather with a dual-cavity construction that helps them mould to the contours of the user’s head. All the moving parts are also constructed using brushed and stainless steel.
The P7 features a new drive unit, modeled on traditional hi-fi speakers, but with more space to let the diaphragm focus on generating sound. These headphones also features a lighter voice coil that is made from an aluminium-copper compound, allowing the drive unit to move more freely for better high frequency performance.
While these headphones won’t come cheap, they are certainly worth listening to.
