    Bowers and Wilkins P7 review

    By 12 November 2013

    For all its audiophile heritage and reputation as something of a style connoisseur, it is strange that Bowers & Wilkins has until now abstained from competing in the higher-end headphone space with the launch of its B&W P7 over-ears. Don’t get us wrong,...

    By 19 March 2013

    Audiophile speaker company Bowers & Wilkins has built a reputation for high-end, top-quality iPod and iPhone docks over the years, but they have often remained just a touch out of reach for some. Either the price has steered consumers into making compromises...

    Bowers & Wilkins P3 headphones review

    By 5 June 2012

    Bowers and Wilkins has a strong reputation when it comes to audio. The company’s speaker systems are enviable (and expensive) and have impressed audiophiles for an age. Enter the B&W P3 over-ear headphones: as part of the P-range, at the top of which...

    Bowers & Wilkins is known for its ultra-high-quality hi-fi systems. Behind the likes of the world-beating Nautilus speaker, it has moved its audio expertise to the headphones, first with the P5s and now the newly launched P3s.  The build quality on these...

    Bowers and Wilkins C5 review

    By 1 December 2011

    Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air review

    By 4 April 2011

    We were very impressed with the original Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin speakers when we reviewed them back in 2008, so we were pleased to hear about the launch of the Apple AirPlay-enabled version. We managed to get a sneak preview of the Zeppelin Air shortly...

    Bowers and Wilkins MM-1 review

    By 10 November 2010

    Bowers and Wilkins P5 headphones review

    By 20 April 2010

    Bowers & Wilkins struggle not to blow you away. From the most lust-worthy speakers, through to the design statement that is the Zeppelin iPod dock. The P5 step into the limelight knowing that audiophiles are going to be peering very closely at them. It's...

    Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini iPod speaker review

    By 5 January 2010

    The premise of the Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin Mini is a simple one, to offer the same sound and experience as the original Zeppelin, but without the massive design and size - we find out whether it succeeds. When Bowers & Wilkins released the original Zeppelin...

    Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin iPod speakers review

    By 25 June 2008
