B&W P9 Signature review

 

A worthy pair of headphones to commemorate B&W's 50th birthday

Stunning midrange clarity ; Superb detail levels ; Weighty, agile bass ; Precise but exciting character ; Comfortable and sturdy build

Bass a touch on the rich side for neutral ears

Their price tag will be a consideration, but the B&W P9s wholly make up for it in the way they sound

Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature headphones preview: For those serious about their music

 

It was only a short while ago when Bowers & Wilkins unveiled the P7 Wireless, a wire-free version of its then flagship headphones and they are top quality - worthy of a premium tag for sure. However, the company has just gone one better. There are now...

If you can stomach the price, the Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature are an outstanding pair of over-ear headphones. They look great, sounds incredible and are even fairly portable. They are a fitting 50th anniversary product but we wouldn't blame you if...

Comfortable ; Luxurious ; Amazing sound

Pricey

The B&W P9 Signature won't dazzle you with bells and whistles, but they offer supreme comfort, a very luxurious finish and amazing sound.

Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature review: Incredible sounding headphones, but the price is high

 

Visceral, ultra-controlled bass, gorgeous design and a high price: the P9 Signature celebrates the firm's fifth decade in style

The P9 Signature is destined to be a classic. You’ll probably not see too many out and about on your daily commute, purely because of the price, but I’m of a mind that £700 isn’t actually all that much to ask, especially when the sound quality is this...

Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature Headphones Review

 

The P9 is the latest signature headphone from Bowers & Wilkins and it blurs the lines between home and portable.

Engaging yet refined sound ; Superb build ; Comfy

Slightly over keen bass ; Heavy ; Not totally sure what they want to be

My time with the Bowers & Wilkins P9 has been extremely enjoyable tinged with just the faintest hint of confusion. In truth, this is an excellent headphone for use at home and on the move but I find myself wondering if it could have been even better if...

Bowers & Wilkins P9 review

 

Like a supercar, the bass-ey P9 are fun to take out on the track, but they're not practical for most of us.

Gorgeous and accurate upper register ; Rich and powerful midrange ; Sleek and stylish design ; Robust build quality ; Luscious bass response

Bass is often overpowering ; Tight clamping force

The P9 are capable of amazing moments, but their propensity to overpower elements with overwhelming bass in some of our favorite songs is tough to justify for a pair of headphones that cost just under $1,000. When we listen to a pair of top-tier cans...

Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature review: Beats deluxe

 

The Beats by Dre promise, the thing that's driven millions of people to spend hundreds of dollars on headphones for the first time, is an intoxicating mix of premium design and bombastic sound....

The bass is bananas ; Premium materials and collapsible design ; Choice of cable lengths and a Lightning option ; Easy to power with a smartphone

Heavy and bulky for portable headphones ; Condensed soundstage ; Treble is a little too polite ; Cost is hard to justify
