Bowers & Wilkins announces P7 over-ear headphones

Bowers & Wilkins have unveiled the P7 headphones. The headphone features an ear pads encased in leather with a dual-cavity construction that helps them mould to the contours of the wearer's head.

A pair of the new P7s can be owned at N82,250.00 when they go on sale later this month given that these are B&W headphones, they don't come in cheap. 

The premium goodness doesn't stop there; all the moving parts are constructed from brushed and stainless steel while the logo plates on each cup are made from brushed aluminium.

B&W has produced a new drive unit for the P7s, modelled on a traditional hi-fi speaker, with more space to let the diaphragm focus on generating sound.

Similarly, a lighter voice coil, made from an aluminium-copper compound, lets the drive unit move more freely for better high frequency performance.

And, because these 'phones are over-ears, there's the added noise cancellation of the ear cushions that will envelop you in a warm, comforting cocoon of noise.
