Bowers & Wilkins celebrates 50 years

A half century after its founder John Bowers began pursuing the idea of ‘True Sound’, the celebrated British loudspeaker manufacturer Bowers & Wilkins is celebrating 50 years of sonic excellence, paying tribute to a remarkable rise from cottage industry to global leader in the world of sound reproduction.

To mark the five-decade milestone, the company this week unveiled the P9 Signature headphone – claimed to be its best sounding and most luxurious headphone to date. Alongside the new 800 D3 loudspeaker, released earlier this year, these two products represent 50 years at the pinnacle of audio performance for Bowers & Wilkins.

The P9 Signature delivers a superior sound quality experience as it benefits from new, in-house developed technologies that provide precision at high frequencies and powerful bass for the ultimate sound experience.

Crafted from the highest-quality Italian Saffiano leather, the P9 Signature also features foldable aluminium arms for greater durability and headband strength, offering exceptional comfort and audio performance, Bowers & Wilkins claims. Similarly, 800 D3, the preferred speaker for the recording industry, represents the culmination of half a century of acoustic research and engineering.

Those 50 years chart an incredible journey for the audio brand that began in the back of an electrical shop. From the company’s first commercial product, the  P1, through to the trend-setting Nautilus, the iconic Zeppelin and then a range of headphones, Bowers & Wilkins products have always been at the cutting edge.

The company was responsible for leading the industry in its use of such innovations as Kevlar, top-mounted tweeters and the modern cabinet matrix system.

Now, as Bower & Wilkins looks to the next 50 years, it celebrates its pivotal role in the reproduction of music via the curation of the world’s 50 best sounding albums, as chosen by Bowers & Wilkins sound engineers, staff and company partners. 

Featuring well known iconic albums such as the 1959 Miles Davis hit ‘Kind of Blue’ to lesser known but beautifully produced gems such as 2013’s ‘Psychic’ by Darkside, the top 50 sounding albums are testament to the finely tuned ears of the world’s best sound engineers.
