Bowers&Wilkins P7 headset review

A very interesting autumn novelty: finally Bowers&Wilkins made full-size headphones. What do you get for 17,000 rubles? In my opinion, P7 is an emotional product in every sense, I want to touch, I want to listen (but I want to listen more).

Design, construction

I want to remind you that on our site there are reviews of all B&W headphones, I still use P3. By the way, new colors have appeared: now, in addition to black and white headphones, you can choose red and blue.

At the moment, the lineup is as follows: full-size P7, overhead P5, miniature overhead P3, plug-in C5 (I also really like this model). I don’t even know what to add here, everything is in its place, and each model is good in its own way. But let's take a closer look at the novelty.

The packaging is of high quality, it is a pity to throw away a box made of thick cardboard, although it takes up a lot of space. Alcantara case, in general, it's not real leather. The delivery set is typical for B&W: two cables, beautiful booklets. I want to remind you that the company's products are worth registering, after this simple process you get access to the B&W music service, you can download a number of interesting songs in excellent quality (a lot of classics).

The design of the P7 has a lot of metal, stainless steel rails, aluminum cup inserts with a curious texture. There is metal on the cable, on the plug and on the remote control. The ear pads are removable, on magnets, under the left there is a groove and a 2.5 mm jack, there are no difficulties with extraction. Apparently, the size of the case did not allow the installation of a conventional connector. The speakers are covered with perforated metal overlays. The most interesting thing is that the headphones can be folded, the fixation is clear. The front part of the cups is wrapped in leather, the headband is massive, the guides go inside through the metal plugs - you can see the cable connecting the cups. Inside the cups there is an audio fabric, apparently the same as used in P3.

Размеры составляют 190 х 70 мм, вес — 290 грамм, длина кабеля — 1,2 метра. Учтите, P7 в чехле не поместятся в кармане, да и в тонкий портфель войдут с трудом.

Пульт ДУ

Пульт довольно большой, три кнопки, работает с любой техникой Apple — это и смартфоны, и планшеты, и ноутбуки. Кнопки мне показались слегка туговатыми, хорошо, что центральная очень длинная, ее легко найти вслепую. К динамику никаких претензий нет, можно свободно общаться, без рук.

Comfort

If you've seen our video about the headphones, you've probably noticed that when Sasha puts on the P7, the music disappears, you can hear it while the headphones are in your hands. It's a very curious thing, I don't know how long it took B&W to achieve this effect. In general, passive noise isolation here is very good, it cuts off not too loud conversation, the sound of the TV from the next room, the sound of water in the bathroom. Naturally, not Bose QC, but not bad, not bad. The ear pads are very comfortable, the headband is thick too, you can wear it for a long time.

Sound quality

I listened with iPhone 5S, Sony Xperia Z1, iPad mini, MacBook Pro 15 Retina - with all the equipment that I use all the time. You can familiarize yourself with the technical characteristics of the model here, two 40 mm speakers are hidden under the skin and metal, the frequency range is 10 Hz - 20 kHz, the maximum input power is 50 mW, but the numbers, as always, will not say anything. Headphones are not addressed to audiophiles, but even for people who are obsessed with audio technology, I would recommend listening to the P7, if only out of sheer interest. For everyone else, I will say one thing: the sound here is pure delight.And the most curious thing is that P3, P5, C5 and P7 sound different, but have one thing in common, the music captures whatever you listen to. The sound is thick, powerful, there is no falsity here, and this applies not only to FLAC, but also to some service like Soundcloud - P7 will not disappoint you. Spend five minutes in the store before buying to appreciate the work of the company's engineers, I think they deserve praise. For example, I don’t listen to classical music all the time, more often with me techno, house or something like that, many people think that it’s too simple and you don’t need high-quality headphones to listen to it - meanwhile, there is a huge difference in impressions, at least from such a mix, listened to using P7 or simpler "monitors".

It's like removing colors from a bright picture, that's how it can be described, the desire to engage in thoughtful listening disappears, only background music remains, nothing more. With P7, this number will not work, the nuances make you listen, there is a desire to just lean back in your chair and say goodbye to all your affairs for a while.

Probably no better praise. There is too much technology around, but among all these gadgets, things, gadgets, glitters, there are too few things with a soul that make you remember your hobby - shake up your track collection, buy something new, connect P7 and listen until you get bored. Will not get bored soon.

Conclusions

In retail, the headphones cost about 17,000 rubles, can we talk about competitors or compare the P7 with something? In my opinion, sound is a subjective matter, these headphones are on their own wave and are able to give you very curious emotions. And this is the most important thing, but let's not forget about the exterior, there is too much metal, leather, to pass by and give up - no, B&W should be praised for the design, and for the delivery set, and for the packaging, and for the additional advantages for consumer. A free subscription to your own music service is also worth something. What can I add, the product was a success, I will safely recommend these headphones to friends, buy as a gift, use it myself - well, I advise you to try it.

Dimensions are 190 x 70 mm, weight - 290 grams, cable length - 1.2 meters. Please note that P7 in a case will not fit in a pocket, and it will be difficult to enter a thin briefcase.

Remote control

The remote is quite large, three buttons, works with any Apple technology - these are smartphones, tablets, and laptops. The buttons seemed to me a little tight, it's good that the central one is very long, it's easy to find it blindly. There are no complaints about the dynamics, you can freely communicate, without hands.

Comfort
