Bowers & Wilkins, a company known for its high-end audio components, lives up to its reputation with the P7, its first over-the-ear headphones. The device’s earpads, made of genuine sheepskin leather, offer both comfort and a snug fit, keeping the audio in and the environment out. Bowers & Wilkins has also built the 40 mm drivers to act like speakers, covering them with baskets perforated with air vents for, in the company’s words, “precise control of the air-flow, resulting in a more uniform movement.” The P7s come with two 3.5 mm cables, one of which has an in-line mic and remote specifically for Apple devices.

The ear pads create a great seal and the level of comfort is very good with the pads putting just enough pressure on the sides of your head to keep them stable and in situ--although your ears can get a bit hot during longer listening sessions.

Throughout our evaluation, the headphones brought vivid clarity to every production we auditioned, sifting through the deeper layers of backing tracks, and the subtle rustling of studio sessions to bring everything to the forefront.

Thanks to the amount of leather used the box even has a new car smell, and we're talking Bentley rather than BMW.

Still, at 7.6 x 7.5 x 2.8 inches and 10.2 ounces, these are big headphones--larger than even the Bose QuietComfort over-ear headphones--so the mobility of the headphones are more a function of how comfortably they sit on the head as opposed to the size of the product.
