Bowers & Wilkins introduces P9 Signature headphone

Bowers & Wilkins has announced the P9 Signature, which was conceived to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary. Costing a cool $899.99, it was engineered by the same team responsible for the 800 D3 loudspeaker.

The P9 Signature is Bowers & Wilkins’ largest over-ear headphone. According to the folks at B&W, the headphone’s fantastic experience is created through the innovative placement of the transducer, which is positioned to provide a more natural listening experience. The wearer hears sound as if they are listening to a pair of stereo speakers rather than headphones, with a sense of imaging, depth and clarity that is “truly breath taking,” the company says.

The P9 Signature will come with a variety of cables suitable for use at home and on the go.  An additional Lightning cable is in development and will be out from early 2017 free of charge to those that have registered their P9. The P9 Signature is available online immediately and will be in retail locations by Oct. 15.
