Designed with music lovers in mind, P9 Signature delivers a unique and superior audio experience; unique Bowers & Wilkins technologies provide precision at high frequencies and astonishing bass for the ultimate audio experience. Engineered by the same team responsible for the class-leading 800 D3 loudspeaker, P9 Signature is Bowers & Wilkins’ largest over-ear headphone and exemplifies all of the acoustic and design innovation amassed during their 50-year journey.
Part of this crystal-clear listening experience is created through the innovative placement of the transducer, which is positioned to provide a more natural listening experience. The wearer hears sound as if they are listening to a pair of stereo speakers rather than headphones, with a sense of imaging, depth and clarity that is truly breath-taking.
The headband adds strength, but is cleverly decoupled from each ear-cup, stopping unwanted vibration from distorting the sound while also offering the very best in comfort. This is similar in both thinking and in material choice to the approach used in the latest generation of 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers.
The finest materials have been used for each component of P9 Signature – nothing is off the shelf, everything is custom. Every element has been designed by Bowers & Wilkins engineers to work seamlessly together to create the highest-quality listening experience.
The headphones are crafted from Italian Saffiano leather, using a ‘stamping’ technique that gives the material a distinctive cross-hatch finish. Memory foam cushions in the ear pads help isolate noise from the outside world and mould to the shape of the user’s head over time, providing both an acoustic seal and an incredibly comfortable listening experience.
P9 Signature’s aluminum arms make them ideal for music on the move thanks to their innovative foldable design and material choice which adds greater durability. The luxurious case is the perfect partner for the flagship headphone; crafted from Alcantara® with its elegant suede-like feel, and Saffiano leather detail, it will protect the headphones while also reflecting their beauty.
P9 Signature is a bold statement of a headphone. It delivers levels of depth and clarity that re-write the rules of mobile listening and is a fitting celebration of Bowers & Wilkins’ five decades of acoustic excellence.
