Bowers and Wilkins has been making excellent on-ear headphones for a while now. However, with the P7s, it's offering up its first-ever over-ear cans — for a price.
The company's $US300 P5s were a revelation; its cheaper P3s were high on sound quality if a little lower on build, at $US200. The news P7s are richer still, costing $US400.
But for that you do seem to get some nice touches. B&W has designed a new set of audio drivers, which it claims are designed more like "traditional audiophile speaker" than a pair of premium headphones. And dripping in leather and aluminium, they look super sleek.
If you can stomach the price tag, the cans will be available from the end of September. [Engadget]
