Design and sound comes together in T7, Bowers & Wilkins’ first Bluetooth speaker. However, sound takes first priority – as with everything the label does – and T7 has the honour of featuring the first commercially available application of Bowers & Wilkins Micro Matrix technology.
This technology takes a leaf out of the Matrix internal bracing used in the reference 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers – the same ones found in Abbey Road Studios. T7 also features the Micro Matrix™ honeycomb structure, which provides substantial cabinet stiffening and a solid platform for the T7’s drive units.
T7 also uses two (patent-pending) force-cancelling high-output bass radiators to extend low frequencies, which helps deliver staggering range, depth and richness. Thanks to the company’s acoustic engineers, the T7 comes with highly optimised 50mm drive units. If you’re worried about the sound transfer, don’t. With the aptX Bluetooth, your favourite track remains in high-definition quality.
Encased in a minimalist interface, the buttons are kept to the essentials. They are unobtrusive and supported by a unique collection of audio cues developed in collaboration with Mira Calix, an international composer, artist, and performer who works with sound across a range of formats.
The T7 is a size of a hardback book, and is designed to be picked up and carried everywhere with you. It has an 18-hour lifespan, heavy-duty stability, and a rubber surround, adding protection to your sleek, quality portable speaker.
T7 is available in store, Millennia Walk or 161 Lavender Street, and is retailing for SGD590.
