The new B&W PI7 and PI5 premium earbuds will go on sale in May starting at $249.
The British company Bowers & Wilkins, a manufacturer of high-end speakers, headphones and car audio systems, has announced the release of the PI7 and PI5 wireless headphones.
The earbuds will be available in white and charcoal black for $249 and $399 respectively. The official release on the global market will take place in May 2021. Some retailers in the US have already begun accepting pre-orders for the devices.
The new Bowers & Wilkins PI5 and PI7 models are Qualcomm aptX-enabled in-ear headphones. The PI5 is equipped with four microphones and basic noise reduction, while the P17 is equipped with six microphones and adaptive noise reduction. Headphones work with smartphones on the iOS and Android operating systems and are compatible with Google and Apple voice assistants.
Both models support Qualcomm's TrueWireless Stereo Plus technology for high quality synchronization. Each P17 earphone is equipped with a custom-built 9.2mm Bowers & Wilkins driver and features performance similar to today's speakers.
The technical characteristics of the new devices allow you to work on a single charge for 4 and 4.5 hours. Both models come with cases that support wireless charging. The Bowers & Wilkins PI7 also features a smart charging filter that plugs into your audio source and sends it to your headphones.
