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.

Apple introduces AirPods Max, the magic of AirPods in a stunning over-ear design

AirPods Max feature incredible high-fidelity audio, Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, and spatial audio

AirPods Max bring the magic of AirPods to an all-new wireless over-ear design with high-fidelity audio, Active Noise Cancellation, spatial audio, and more.
Cupertino, California — Apple today announced AirPods Max, innovative wireless headphones that bring the magic of AirPods to an over-ear design with high-fidelity sound. AirPods Max combine a custom acoustic design, H1 chips, and advanced software to power computational audio for a breakthrough listening experience with Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency mode, and spatial audio. AirPods Max come in five gorgeous colors, including space gray, silver, sky blue, green, and pink, and are available to order starting today, with availability beginning Tuesday, December 15.
“AirPods are the most popular headphones in the world, beloved for their effortless setup, incredible sound quality, and iconic design. With AirPods Max, we are bringing that magical AirPods experience to a stunning over-ear design with high-fidelity audio,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “The custom acoustic design, combined with powerful H1 chips, and advanced software enable AirPods Max to use computational audio to wirelessly deliver the ultimate personal listening experience.”

Custom Acoustic Design

From the canopy to the ear cushions, every part of AirPods Max is carefully crafted to provide exceptional acoustic performance for each user. The breathable knit mesh canopy, spanning the headband, is made to distribute weight and reduce on-head pressure. The stainless steel headband frame provides strength, flexibility, and comfort for a wide variety of head shapes and sizes. Telescoping headband arms smoothly extend and stay in place to maintain the desired fit.
Each ear cup attaches to the headband through a revolutionary mechanism that balances and distributes ear cup pressure, and allows it to independently pivot and rotate to fit the unique contours of a user’s head. Each ear cushion uses acoustically engineered memory foam to create an effective seal — a critical factor in delivering immersive sound. The Digital Crown, inspired by Apple Watch, offers precise volume control and the ability to play or pause audio, skip tracks, answer or end phone calls, and activate Siri.

Breakthrough Listening Experience

AirPods Max feature a 40-mm Apple-designed dynamic driver that provides rich, deep bass, accurate mid-ranges, and crisp, clean high-frequency extension so every note can be heard. A unique dual neodymium ring magnet motor allows AirPods Max to maintain total harmonic distortion of less than 1 percent across the entire audible range, even at maximum volume.1 Equipped with an Apple-designed H1 chip in each ear cup, a custom acoustic design, and advanced software, AirPods Max use computational audio to deliver the highest quality listening experience possible. Utilizing each of the chips’ 10 audio cores — capable of 9 billion operations per second — computational audio powers a breakthrough listening experience that includes Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency mode, and spatial audio.
AirPods Max custom acoustic design features a 40-mm dynamic driver and a unique dual neodymium ring magnet motor.
  • Adaptive EQ: AirPods Max use Adaptive EQ to adjust the sound to the fit and seal of the ear cushions by measuring the sound signal delivered to a user and adjusting the low and mid-frequencies in real time — bringing rich audio that captures every detail.
  • Active Noise Cancellation: AirPods Max deliver immersive sound through Active Noise Cancellation so users can focus on what they are listening to. Each ear cup features three outward-facing microphones to detect environmental noise, while one microphone inside the ear cup monitors the sound reaching the listener’s ear. Using computational audio, noise cancellation continuously adapts to the headphone fit and movement in real time.
  • Transparency Mode: With AirPods Max, users can switch to Transparency mode to simultaneously listen to music while hearing the environment around them — ensuring everything, including a user’s own voice, sounds natural while audio plays perfectly. Switching between Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode can be done with a single press using the noise control button.
  • Spatial Audio: AirPods Max use spatial audio with dynamic head tracking to place sounds virtually anywhere in a space — delivering an immersive, theaterlike experience for content recorded in 5.1, 7.1, and Dolby Atmos. Using the gyroscope and accelerometer in AirPods Max and iPhone or iPad, spatial audio tracks the motion of a user’s head as well as the device, compares the motion data, then remaps the sound field so it stays anchored to the device, even as the user’s head moves.

The Magic of AirPods

AirPods Max join the existing AirPods family in delivering unparalleled wireless audio, whether a customer is listening to music, making phone calls, enjoying TV shows and movies, playing games, or interacting with Siri. The magical setup experience customers love with today’s AirPods and AirPods Pro extends to AirPods Max with one-tap setup, followed by automatic pairing with all the devices signed in to a user’s iCloud account, including iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV.
AirPods Max automatically detect when they are on a user’s head using the optical and position sensors. Once in place, AirPods Max play audio and can pause once removed or when the user simply lifts one ear cup. With AirPods Max, voice calls and Siri commands are crisp and clear due to beam-forming microphones that block out ambient noise and focus on the user’s voice.
AirPods Max feature the magical one-tap setup experience that customers love with AirPods.

Battery and Performance

AirPods Max feature great battery life with up to 20 hours of high-fidelity audio, talk time, or movie playback with Active Noise Cancellation and spatial audio enabled.2
AirPods Max come with a soft, slim Smart Case that puts AirPods Max in an ultralow power state that helps to preserve battery charge when not in use.

Additional Features

  • Automatic switching allows users to seamlessly move sound between iPhone, iPad, and Mac. When playing music on Mac, users can easily take a call on iPhone and AirPods Max will automatically switch over.
