We do things differently at Bowers & Wilkins. For over 50 years, we have pursued our founder’s dream of creating the perfect loudspeaker, one that neither adds to nor takes away from the original music. John Bowers wanted to create products that revealed the ‘True Sound’ of each recording, faithful in every nuance to the original performance and exactly as the artist intended it to be heard, which is why its loudspeakers have been trusted by artists, composers and engineers in Abbey Road Studios for over 40 years.
It’s this dedication to audio excellence that has seen us deliver category-defining audio innovation for every decade of our existence: we want everyone to share our passion for True Sound, and we’ll explore every possible technical, design and engineering solution in the pursuit of our goals. We want every product we make, from our reference-class loudspeakers to our wireless music systems and headphones, to be greater than the sum of its wires, metal and code: we want it to be authentic to everything we are. We develop bespoke technologies, not off-the-shelf solutions, because we believe our way is the best way. We are compelled to innovate, challenge, re-think – because when only the best will do, you have to do things differently.
Most importantly, we never forget what we are doing this for. We are loved by people who love music – because we make the music they love even more rewarding to listen to. It’s a love affair with deep roots: for decades, Bowers & Wilkins loudspeakers have been the trusted choice of studio professionals and recording artists the world over, as fundamental to their creative process as their preferred microphone or favourite guitar. From Abbey Road Studios to Skywalker Sound, from the simplest stereo recording to the biggest orchestral score, music that will soon be heard everywhere is heard first on our speakers – because the people who know music best choose Bowers & Wilkins.
