(opens in a new tab)
While they’re normally known for their speakers (which are some of the best around, might we add), audio giant Bowers & Wilkins got into the earbuds game a couple of years ago. Their
If you’re looking for a great pair of truly wireless earbuds, the Pi7 are some of the best (not to mention best-looking) ones on the market. They have a sleek, black and gold design with convenient, built-in controls: Each bud has a touch-sensitive button that allows you to skip songs, hold and take calls, or pause and play as needed. And don’t even get us started on the sound: The Pi7 produces sound via Dual Hybrid Drive units with individual amplifiers for each driver, meaning that each bud has two built-in amps. It supports 24-bit sound and Qualcomm’s latest aptX Adaptive codec, which is the best you can get for hi-res wireless sound.
The wireless charging pad lets you charge the case with ease, too, and it also has a cool feature that the brand calls “audio retransmission”: Basically, you can connect the case to an external audio source that will then transmit that high audio back into your earbuds for better sound. You also get a 3.5mm USB-C and a USB-C to USB-C cable in the box, so you can plug the case into pretty much anything if you don’t want to go the wireless route. A 15-minute charge will give you two hours of battery time, with each case offering four full recharges before running out of juice.
The Active Noise Cancelation is intuitive, too, as you can pick your level of noise cancelation simply by pressing one of the controls on the bud and selecting between low, medium, and high, depending on how much attention you need to pay to your surroundings. There are also detection sensors that put the earbuds on standby mode when removed. You can reconnect them to the last connected Bluetooth device when put back on, and pause or resume music when removed.
