According to our own expert writers, the multi award-winning Bowers & Wilkins Pi7 “blew basically everything else on the market out of the water” when they launched in 2021; the headphones were “a revelation… the depth of bass, the detail in the treble and the clarity of the vocals were on another level.” The Pi7’s even more affordable siblings, the Bowers & Wilkins Pi5, attracted rave reviews too thanks to their superb noise cancelling and gorgeous, immersive sound.
And now Bowers & Wilkins has made them even better.
Improving on excellence
Bowers & Wilkins is part of music’s DNA. Chances are your favourite records were made using Bowers & Wilkins loudspeakers: they’re found in the world’s leading recording studios, including the legendary Abbey Road Studios and Skywalker Sound. Now, Bowers & Wilkins has brought its many decades of audio experience and expertise to its very latest headphones.
Superb sound, evolved
The Pi7 S2 builds on the award-winning acoustic excellence of the Pi7, with its two 9.2mm bespoke drive units, balanced armature tweeters and individual amplifiers delivering an incredibly wide dynamic range and vivid sound stage. Their proprietary DSP takes in-ear audio to a whole new level thanks to its highly accurate reproduction and low distortion, and with aptX Adaptive support built-in you can take full advantage of high resolution streaming at up to 24-bit / 48Khz. There’s adaptive noise cancellation to eliminate unwanted distractions and a 25% improvement in battery life.
Like its predecessors, the Pi7 S2 features the brand’s innovative wireless audio retransmission technology, which you can use to retransmit sound from external audio sources, games consoles and in-flight entertainment systems to your earbuds.
Bowers & Wilkins sound for an affordable price
The new Pi5 S2 uses the same proprietary drivers as its siblings, with one 9.2mm driver per earbud delivering superb and accurate sound. There’s aptX for CD-quality audio streaming, superb noise cancellation and once again, even better battery life than before. If you forget to charge your Pi5 S2s, just 15 minutes in the case will deliver a full two hours of listening.
Your favourite music all in one place
The Pi7 S2 and Pi5 S2 are the first Bowers & Wilkins true wireless headphones to be compatible with the firm’s intuitive Bowers & Wilkins Music App, offering a convenient and seamless set-up, complete control and configuration and direct music streaming from music streaming services including Qobuz, TIDAL, Deezer, NTS Radio, TuneIn and SoundCloud – with more services due to be added this year. It couldn’t be easier to stream the playlists you’ve already created in your existing music apps, while accessing curated playlists from Bowers & Wilkins’ team of music lovers.
Stand out from the crowd
The Bowers & Wilkins new True Wireless models feature premium design finishes that look as good as they sound. The popular Midnight Blue finish from Bowers & Wilkins’ Px7 S2 over-ear headphones has been brought across to the Pi7 S2, and there are also three new colours: Satin Black, Canvas White and Midnight Blue.
The Pi5 S2 offer the widest range of colours Bowers & Wilkins has delivered to date, including Storm Grey, Cloud Grey, Spring Lilac and, from this spring, Sage Green.
The perfect true wireless headphones for the music you love
Whether it’s the flagship Pi7 S2 or its great value for money sibling, Pi5 S2, Bowers & Wilkins’ true wireless headphones get you closer to the True Sound of the artist’s intent.
