Bowers and Wilkins Pi7 In-ear True Wireless Headphones

Introducing the Pi7 true wireless headphones. True wireless. Incredible sound.

Manufacturers Details:

Deluxe wire-free earbuds with top-flight noise cancellation

In the world of premium audio, few names ring out like Bowers & Wilkins. Their top-of-the-line PI7 true wireless earbuds exhibit the company's natural knack for blending style and substance. These wire-free in-ears sport a sleek design, stay-put fit, and serve up a pristine sound, rich in dynamics. Plus, they have sophisticated noise-canceling technology that adjusts to external sounds in real time, thanks to an array of six built-in mics.

I'll have full impressions soon, but I can say from my brief audition that the noise cancellation is among the best available. I simply don't expect earbuds to cancel noise this well. The PI7s reduced the gnarly growl of my lawnmower's motor to a mere murmur — and that's before I even hit play on my music! I could listen to tunes and keep up with podcast conversations at a safe, comfortable volume.     

Convenient touch controls and mobile app

Music plays wirelessly from your phone via Bluetooth 5.0, a newer version of the popular wireless technology. You can pair to two devices at the same time — which is helpful in the home office. Touch or tap either earbud to control music, calls, noise cancellation and more.   

And the optional Bowers & Wilkins headphone app will give you further control of the sound and noise cancellation, right on your phone. B&W also loaded a selection of relaxing "SoundScapes" nature sounds to choose from when you want to zone out. The app is available as a free download for Apple® and Android™.

Engineered With Care: 

Dual-driver design for precise, well-rounded sound

The PI7 sound was developed and tuned by the sound engineers responsible for B&W's flagship 800 D3 loudspeakers. Inside each earbud, there's a combination of two drivers, each driven by its own dedicated amplifier. One is the same powerful 9.2mm dynamic driver found in their PI5 earbuds, and the other is a balanced armature tweeter to cover the upper-mids and highs.

I usually like to spend more time with a set of headphones before I form an opinion, but a quick run through some familiar music gave me a nice first impression. I was particularly struck by the imaging — and how the size of the soundstage seemed to adjust based on the song. On some tracks the presentation felt more intimate, on others more spacious. But because of precision and sense of space, there was always a tactile depth and layering to what I was hearing, beyond what you might expect from a set of true wireless earbuds.

Add Bluetooth to any device with a headphone jack

B&W thought of a handy travel hack — the charging case can double as a wireless audio transmitter. A USB-C to stereo mini cable is included. It helps connect the case to in-flight entertainment, a laptop, or anything else with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Then, the case sends audio signals wirelessly to the PI7 earbuds via Bluetooth.

I tried this out one night and watched a show on a computer without Bluetooth built in. It worked seamlessly for me. I was worried that it might be hard to sync up with no screen involved, but I pressed the button on the case and the earbuds paired right up.  

Ear tips stay firmly in place

In-ear headphones are only as good as their fit. And with noise-canceling headphones, a proper sound-isolating seal is half the battle. These earbuds lock into place with a slight twist, and simply did not budge as I moved my head around. B&W includes three sizes of soft, flexible ear tips to ensure a snug, secure fit.
