The Story of Bowers & Wilkins
Bowers & Wilkins was founded in 1966 in England when John Bowers hand-assembled loudspeakers for local clients under the name B&W Electronics. His assembled loudspeakers and knowledge of classical music impressed Miss Knight, an elderly lady who left him £10,000 in her will to develop a business. Bowers & Wilkins has developed and flourished since then and has made a mark in the minds of audiophiles today.
Innovative New Technology
Bowers and Wilkins has constantly strived to create various new technological features to produce high-class products. Be it the innovative use of materials such as Kevlar and Diamond, new solutions to complex engineering conundrums, or ‘eureka moments’ of brilliance, their engineers constantly strive to produce the best possible sound. Bowers and Wilkins speakers are widely regarded as one of the best loudspeaker brands in the world. With changing times, Bowers and Wilkins headphones steadily hold their own in the field of headphones too. Models like the Bowers & Wilkins PX, Bowers & Wilkins P5 enjoy an impressive fan following. The Bowers and Wilkins PX, available as part of the product portfolio for Bowers and Wilkins India, is definitely a respected performer

"The earpieces snap into their docking position magnetically, and with a little more pull than many cases have, ensuring a better lock with the charging contacts."Read More
"The PI7 are also quite petite,smaller than rivals from Bose, Sennheiser and Sony – which is no small feat. The matching case keeps the compact dimensions, so it should fit into the slimmest trouser pocket."Read More
"The PI7’s selling point is its codec support. The PI7 feature SBC, AAC, and Qualcomm’s aptX Adaptive codec. Apple’s AAC codec delivers audio in 16-bit resolution and a 44kHz sampling rate."Read More
"The PI7 have a total of three mics per earpiece to take care of call handling, chatting to your voice assistant & analysing ambient conditions for the adaptive active noise-cancellation tech."Read More
"It’s also the only way you can switch ‘ambient pass-through’ (which allows a degree of external sound in) on or off, or adjust the level of ‘ambient pass-through’ transparency you’d like."Read More
Thank you for your valuable review!
B&W PI7 I was a bit speculative as to whether I have made correct choice or not and once I got the product unboxed it and heard the music it proved that the product is good and the choice was not wrong
We appreciate your honest review & ratings, Alok Jain. Thank you so much for sharing your experience. Cheers!
Today I got my product of Bowers and Wilkins PI7, nicely packed and thanks to Club Audio Phil’s for the guide on some marvellous tracks
Fit is good sound initially seemed amazing with proper ear tip Bass is superb it does not over power the treble and the vocals
Rest will let you know after listening for some time
We appreciate your honest review & ratings, Alok Jain. We will be waiting to know about your listening experience soon. Cheers!
Best sounding earbuds I've tried. Better for bigger ears, 10/10 recommend if you have the budget.
Hey there, nothing makes us happier than knowing you loved your purchase, hope you had a comfortable shopping experience & thank you for the great review & ratings!
Yet another winner from B&W stable. Perfect in almost all department. Good comfortable fit, ok ANC, minimalist touch controls and great look. Phone app is useless.excellent horizontal sound stage and separation. Bass is the double edged sword. In one hand makes i7 very enjoyable but in some situations it's bit overpowered and drowns the mid. But overall excellent sound.
Writing this review after almost 2 months of use.
Dividing it in pros ans cons -
1. Great sound signature thanks to the combination of drivers. Base is excellent for TWS so are the Mids and lows.
2. Intuitive controls.
3. Light weight design. After a while you won't remember that they're on.
4. Build quality is good. Tho doesn't justify the high price but doesn't give can't complain.
5. The unique feature is using the case for Bluetooth pass thru. Comes in handy when using on flights.
6. They support multiple Bluetooth code s which is a good option to have.
1. Eye watering price. These are definitely over priced for the features offered. A a price of about 10k lesser would've been acceptable.
2. Uncomfortable stock tips. The stock tips don't provide a great seal. I imported the comply foam tips since the same aren't available in India.
3. Battery life could have been better when compared to the competetion like the XM4S.
4. The Android app experience is terrible. It will pair to the phone Bluetooth immediately but not to the app.
5. Dont know why but the ANC doesnt work when paired with Android phones. Tried it multiple times but turning it in and off doesn't make any difference in the Noise cancellation. However, when paired to an iPhone the app works well and so does the ANC both in manual and Auto options.
5. Finally to the biggest gripe of all. ANC. NOT GOOD FOR BUDS AT THIS PRICE ESP NOW THAT THE XM4s have finally launched in India. When compared to the XM4s they fall behind in ANC, battery life and are comparable in sound.
Give these a miss. Won't recommend them at this price point.
We understand your disappointment with the product, but we couldn't find the issue that you mentioned in the unit. Multiple team members and even Raghav inspected the unit in case if it is a critical issue, but couldn't find that either.
Maybe we didn't convey it well, but the team meant that we tested the unit for specific ANC issues and we did a general inspection overcall as well and the unit seemed to be working fine.
We're sorry that we couldn't offer the resolution that you wanted.
Fit and comfort of pI7 is subjective , to my ears it doesn’t fit well and so feels uncomfortable to me.I tried all tips that comes in the box and body of these buds is some what big to fit perfectly in ear. But Sound quality of these buds is awesome and worth to try .
