History of Bowers & Wilkins

The second decade of the 21st Century saw Bowers & Wilkins updating signature technologies, as well as entering new markets. Diamond tweeter technology was updated, and included on even more loudspeakers, while the mobile music fan was addressed with Bowers & Wilkins' first headphones.

800 Series Diamond

2010: 800 Series Diamond

The sixth incarnation of Bowers & Wilkins flagship loudspeaker range was launched at the start of 2010. The big news was diamond tweeters featuring in every model in the range for the first time, but an exhaustive overhaul to all the audio-sensitive elements meant the 800 Series Diamond was the best sounding 800 Series so far.


2010: P5

Bowers & Wilkins debut pair of headphones was a true statement of intent. The luxurious, leather-clad P5 mobile hi-fi headphones allowed iPod® and iPhone® users to experience Bowers & Wilkins sound wherever they went for the first time.


2010: MM-1

Bowers & Wilkins also launched its first dedicated computer speaker. The MM-1 brought the music stored on customers’ computers to life thanks to USB streaming it its built-in high-quality DAC. It was incredibly well-received at launch, receiving glowing reviews from both the audiophile press and gadget and technology fans.
