Bowers & Wilkins’ First True Wireless HiFi Headphones Are Perfect For Travel

Although the prevalence of true wireless earbuds has increased greatly over the past few years, there remain a few notable audio brands without an offering in the segment. But today, that list has shrunk by one, as high-end British brand Bowers & Wilkins has released their first in-ear true wireless headphones with the PI7.

The Bowers & Wilkins PI7 in-ear true wireless headphones are as high-end as you would expect from the brand — and then some. First and foremost, their sound quality is top-notch, with a 24-bit connection and Qualcomm aptX Adaptive technology delivering high-resolution sound, plus dual hybrid drive units with individual amplifiers for superior detail. They also feature six microphones for crystal clear phone calls, as well as adaptive noise-canceling and fast wireless charging. Perhaps most impressive of all is the PI7’s smart charging case with audio retransmission, as it has the ability to plug into any 3.5mm audio source — like, say, an in-flight entertainment unit — and transmit the audio to the headphones wirelessly, without the need for any dongle. That unique feature, combined with their compact size and adaptive noise-canceling, makes the PI7 the perfect headphones for travel. The PI7 are available now from Bowers & Wilkins for $400, alongside B&W’s new entry-level true wireless headphones, the $250 PI5.
