Joining the brand slow, but surely growing portfolio of headphones are PI7 and PI5 True Wireless headphones that promised to delver unrivaled high-resolution sound quality, along with Adaptive Noise Cancellation, intuitive wireless audio transmission and wireless charging.
The PI7, which is the higher end of the two, is driven by high-resolution 24-bit audio processing in each earbud, paired to Dual Hybrid Drive units that shares the same working principle as high-performance speakers.
Its Adaptive Noise Cancellation automatically adapts, in real-time, to its surroundings to produce the best possible listening experience.
It has six microphones – three in each earbud – to afford crystal-clear sound quality for calls which you can answer at a touch.
The PI7 further touts quad amps and advanced DSP for “exceptional control, superlative dynamics and deep, accurate bass.”
PI7 comes with a handsome charging case, called Smartcase, that features an industry first: wireless audio retransmission.
“That means you can continue to use your PI7s even when on a plane: just connect your case directly to an audio source – such as an in-flight entertainment system – and it will retransmit sound directly to your earbuds.”
The PI5, on the other hand, promised TWS+ technology for high-quality earbud-to-earbud synchronization.
It features advanced Active Noise Cancellation, two built-in microphones for calls and boasts over 24 hours of battery life. The PI5 comes with a fast-charging case that can top up two house of battery life from just 15-minute of charging (likewise for PI7).
The charging case can be topped any wireless charging pad. Both models are configurable via Bowers & Wilkins companion app.
Common features include Qualcomm aptX, a simple one-button user interface, voice assistant support (Siri or Google Assistant), and support for connection with multiple source devices.
