High resolution streaming with twice the fidelity than the leading wireless speaker brand

MENLO PARK, Calif., September 12, 2019 – Bowers & Wilkins, the leading global performance audio brand known for its innovative technology, today extends its new wireless capabilities, now with the introduction of the Formation Flex – the highest quality sound ever found in a standalone wireless speaker of its size. 
The Formation Flex features the same tweeter technology found in the award-winning 600 series speakers, so the consumer gets the same amazingly clear sound quality of our wired speaker.   Designed to be versatile the Formation Flex can be used independently, paired with another Formation Flex for stereo sound, or any other Formation speaker for a whole home audio system including the Formation Bar for an immersive 5.1 surround sound experience.   Formation Flex lives up to the exacting immersive, high-fidelity standards of Bowers & Wilkins while continuing to redefine “wireless audio” standards in the industry – true to its groundbreaking heritage and making Formation Flex part of the Highest Form of Sound™.

“The Formation Flex is incredibly quick and easy to set up with our streamlined user interface. It takes just a few minutes to set up and start playing your music.” says Bowers & Wilkins CEO, Greg Lee.

“Once again, we’re introducing world class modern design – a product that is purposely built for superior acoustics but designed to fit into your home aesthetic and make a statement. And one of the key features is the full home scalability, the Flex lets the consumer expand through the entire home with additional Formation products that we introduced in the Spring.” Greg Lee, Bowers & Wilkins CEO.
