T7 is Bowers & Wilkins first Bluetooth speaker, and as with everything Bowers & Wilkins does, T7 is all about sound. Bowers & Wilkins’ new T7 wireless speaker combines Bluetooth streaming with compact size and rechargeable convenience. The result, according to the company, is Hi-Fi untethered.
Bowers & Wilkins T7
The compact speaker features the first commercially available application of Bowers & Wilkins Micro Matrix technology. Derived from the Matrix internal bracing used in the reference 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers found in Abbey Road Studios, and developed as part of Bowers & Wilkins next-generation automotive audio concepts, the Micro Matrix honeycomb structure provides substantial cabinet stiffening and a solid platform for the T7’s drive units.
T7 uses two (patent-pending) force-canceling high-output bass radiators to extend low frequencies, which help deliver staggering range, depth and richness. The T7’s two highly optimized 2 inch (50mm) drive units are the result of a very long evaluation process. A process undertaken by some of the very best listeners in the business: Bowers & Wilkins acoustic engineers. Plus, the use of aptX Bluetooth ensures high-definition detail isn’t lost in wireless transmission when you stream audio directly from any Bluetooth-enabled PC, tablet or mobile phone.
Bowers & Wilkins products are designed with simple interfaces. With T7, the user interaction goes a step further, and the easy-to-use, yet unobtrusive controls are supported by a unique collection of audio cues developed in collaboration with Mira Calix, an international composer, artist, and performer who works with sound across a range of formats.
T7 is the most portable standalone speaker Bowers & Wilkins has ever produced. The size of a hardcover book, it’s designed to be picked up and carried with you. T7’s rechargeable battery grants you the freedom to take it with you wherever you go, for up to 10 hours at normal listening levels.
While T7 is compact, it’s reassuringly solid, with the heavy-duty stability you would expect of a high-quality speaker. The rubber surround adds protection and tactile quality, adding to the speaker’s distinctive, elegant design.
T7 offers genuine hi-fi sound, with no strings attached.
