Headphones Intraurales True Wireless Worthing | Bowers & Wilkins PI7 y PI5

New Bowers & Wilkins PI7 and PI5 Bring True Sound to True Wireless In-Ear Headphones Worthing, England, April 2021: True Wireless (TWS) In-Ear Headphones are immensely popular, but most designs currently available represent the fruit of a commitment to the one whose sound quality is sacrificed in favor of wireless convenience. Bowers & Wilkins has always insisted that this problem should be corrected before it could consider
launching its own TWS products.

Now, after a long period of development, Bowers & Wilkins is proud to bring two new products that carry the brand’s celebrated promise of True Sound with absolute performance into the True Wireless Intraaural Headphone category. Both the PI7 and PI5 offer all the sound quality that music lovers should expect from a Bowers & Wilkins signed product combined with a wide range of practical and smart features, extreme transparency on phone calls and a design as beautiful as exclusive.

Two new and impressive models

PI7
Available in White and Charcoal
RRP: € 399 €

PI5
Available in White and Charcoal
RRP: € 399 €

The reference model is the PI7, equipped with the wireless transmission system from Qualcomm aptX Adaptive compatible mobile devices, which allows listening to high-resolution music via streaming from services such as Qobuz. The PI7s accompany this “Hi-Res” compatibility with a 24-bit / 48 kHz wireless transmission between helmet and helmet. Together, these two technologies make the PI7 one of the very few True Wireless headphones that support high-resolution audio all the way from the music source to the user’s ears.

In addition, while the enclosure of each of the PI7’s headphones is compact enough to fit comfortably in the ear, these headphones exhibit technical characteristics that are
remarkably close to those of an advanced conventional loudspeaker. Each hull incorporates a custom-made 9.2 mm diameter transducer by Bowers & Wilkins that is complemented by a “balanced shell” type dedicated exclusively to high frequencies, each of the four transducers in the system being excited by its own amplifier. This setup ensures exceptional control, superlative dynamics, and deep, accurate bass.

The PI7s also include Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) to monitor and analyze your environment so that it can automatically adapt to it, ensuring the best possible listening experience. This system is complemented by six microphones – three on each helmet to guarantee crystal clear sound quality for phone calls. The PI7s are accompanied by the equally new PI5s, which utilize TWS + technology for robust, high-quality sync between hulls, coupled with the use of a single custom-made 9.2mm full-range transducer by Bowers. & Wilkins on each helmet. The PI5 can reproduce CD quality sound from compatible mobile devices thanks to the inclusion of the aptX high quality wireless audio transmission system.

Intelligent Functions Both the PI7 and the PI5 can be configured through the Bowers & Wilkins Headphones App, as well as including a simple user interface formed by a single button –capacitive type and that allows to perform multiple tasks in a simple and elegant way- and support for voice control via Apple Siri or Google Assistant depending on the connected device.

Likewise, it is possible to wirelessly synchronize – pair – multiple devices to each model, thus allowing the user to reconnect easily and comfortably to each source – for example, switching from listening to music on a phone to an online conference on a phone. laptop according to your needs.

Finally, both models offer the convenience of a wireless recharge compatible with a wide range of accessories, as well as boxes / charging cases that can recharge the battery of each helmet when it has been depleted. The PI5s will work for four and a half hours before requiring a recharge, while for the PI7s this autonomy is four hours. From that moment on, the respective charging boxes will provide up to four full recharges to each helmet, so the user will have guaranteed entertainment for long hours. In this sense, the PI7s offer a genuinely unique feature that will make even the longest journeys more bearable:

Both full specifications and images for each product – in all finishes – are available on the Bowers & Wilkins Hub. Available from April 21, the PI7 and PI5 aim to achieve the same impact in the TWS category previously achieved by the celebrated and award-winning Bowers & Wilkins headphones. The company has taken the time to create its first True Wireles Intraaural Headphones, but we think the result has been worth the wait.

Bowers & Wilkins launches the PX, the brand’s first wireless headphones with built-in noise cancellation.

State-of-the-art headphones that combine the best sound performance of products in their class with a revolutionary user experience and streaming Bluetooth aptX HD.

Barcelona, ​​Spain:  Bowers & Wilkins , the British speaker brand known for its high-performance audio components, announces the launch of the PX, its first wireless noise-canceling headphones. In addition to being the best-in-class product when it comes to sound quality, PXs intelligently respond to user behavior in order to provide an absolutely irreproachable intuitive listening experience.

PXs reflect Bowers & Wilkins’ uncompromising approach to acoustic performance, with each element of their design geared toward optimizing sound quality.

The PX’s transducers are derived from those used in Bowers & Wilkins’ reference headphones , the P9 Signature, and incorporate the same sloped design to provide a more compelling sound scene. The active noise canceling feature has been refined to provide optimal isolation without “squeezing” the music (a process that required thousands of hours of development and testing). PXs also use advanced aptX HD Bluetooth wireless transmission technology – which supports resolutions up to 24-bit / 48kHz – to play all kinds of digital content in the best possible sound.

Apart from its unrivaled features, the most outstanding aspect of the PX is perhaps the user experience they provide. The PX are Bowers & Wilkins ‘ first smart headphones , with built-in sensors that allow the listener to control in a completely intuitive way.

PXs work by responding intelligently to user behavior. Put them on and the headphones will immediately activate and resume playing your favorite music. Take them off and they will return to standby mode. Pick up a helmet to speak, or hang them around your neck and they’ll interrupt playback, resuming when you’re ready. A state-of-the-art battery provides up to 22 hours of listening in wireless noise cancellation mode or up to 33 hours in wired noise cancellation mode.

Alexander van der Heijden, CEO of Bowers & Wilkins Headphone Division , commented on the PX: “At Bowers & Wilkins we have always believed that the role of acoustic technology is to step aside, allowing music to take center stage. From Stage. PXs take this principle to the next level. We have not only created the most musical noise canceling headphones you have ever heard, but also headphones that are so cleverly designed and responsive that you should forget about wearing them. ”

In order to provide an optimal listening experience in different environments, the PX includes three adaptive noise cancellation modes that the user can select with a dedicated “app”. Thus, “City” allows you to hear traffic noise so that you can cross streets safely. “Office” lets voices pass so you can hear your colleagues when they want to talk to you. “Airplane” dramatically suppresses ambient noise from engines. The “app” also allows for firmware updates. luxury wireless headphones

The design of the PX respects the Bowers & Wilkins tradition of using only high-quality materials while offering a contemporary aesthetic feature. The headphones feature ergonomically designed elliptical ear cushions to maximize comfort and provide the best possible acoustic seal, while also featuring a soft leather-lined headband and helmets with an external ballistic nylon lining. PXs are available in Space Gray or Soft Gold etched aluminum finishes.
