PRESS RELEASE

Leave the noise behind and connect on a deeper level

MENLO PARK, Calif., September 23, 2019 - Wireless Headphones can create your own slice of personal, immersed space – whether it’s while you travel, work or play.  Yet most headphones either lack the technology knowhow to enable a true “soundstage” listening experience or prioritize being a fashion accessory over sound quality. Now, Bowers & Wilkins’ world-renowned audio engineers unveil their newest line of 2019 headphones, designed from the ground up with the same exacting acoustic standards as our legendary 50-year speakers heritage – in a range of designs to fit your listening needs.
 
Each pair starts with custom-designed drivers developed specifically for each headphone wearing style, from the 43mm drivers in the top-of-the line Over-Ear PX7, to the exclusive dual hybrid drivers in the sporty In-Ear PI3. “This unique application of our proprietary driver technology, when coupled with the new and cutting edge aptX Adaptive technology from Qualcomm creates the most realistic, high-fidelity soundstage of any headphone on the market, reproducing sound just as it was created in the studio,” says Tim Johnston, SVP & GM of Headphone Business Unit.  “We’ve worked extremely hard to create a line of headphones that deliver music the way the artists intended it to be heard.”  Bowers & Wilkins headphones will be the first commercially available aptX adaptive sync devices.
 
Based on the ultra- low power Qualcomm QCC5100 Series Bluetooth Audio SoCs with the all new aptX Adaptive audio technology experience robust, low-latency, high resolution wireless technology at 24/48 streaming quality. The headphones also include ANC that runs at 16 times the sampling rate to ensure the best performance with no degradation to the audio quality.
