Things are better when shared; food, whisky, you get the drift. The fundamentals of CWO share the very same reason, to sit like minded people down for conversation. And today we got something truly special, Bowers & Wilkins’ 50th birthday cake - the P9 Signature.

REVIEW: Bowers & Wilkins PX

A generous amount of leather, thickly cut metal has resulted in 413 grams, like a Bentley they don’t try concealing weight because this is a world of plenty. From a design standpoint, the P9 is the headphones equivalent of what Eames and Ottoman is to the furniture world. Glistened with the best sustainable materials and softest leather to the human skin. I too would be led to believe if I was told they both were conceived in the same era.

If a mobile device makes the P9 sound weedy, have your music piped down a DAC then an amplifier. As for the rest of the population, a MacBook does the job decently well and doesn’t take long to realise its the best thing you’ve listened to music through.

The Signature serves a nice blend of strong bass (a bit too charitable), seriously rich mid and meticulous upper registers is nonetheless a good mix. Left and right sound separation too is astonishingly delivered. It is often where I opened my eyes questioning if I was with the artist themselves in a recording studio.

Have a listen to MLAAT’s Winter Love, the P9 whole-heartedly brings out Pie’s misty voice. Then again, if there’s one song to demonstrate this B&W’s magnificence, it would be Jamiroquai’s Summer Girl.

Jack plugged in, laying on a lounge chair in an air conditioned sphere then it suddenly became a concert for one.
