Bowers & Wilkins T7 Wireless
B&W is one of the UK’s most highly respected loudspeaker manufacturers and this is their smallest product. As with the Riva Turbo, we think the T7 is a mite too big to take along for a city break but just about small and light enough for a two- or three-week long-haul stint or a trip in the car.
As you’d expect from a brand like B&W, the T7 is arguably the most hi-fi like speaker in this roundup (the little Foxl and Moment notwithstanding). You could listen to this speaker for hours without ever thinking it’s too bright, too middy or too bassy. Every element of its soundstage is spot on, bass response is tight and extremely tuneful and it goes loud, too, without ever breaking into a sweat.
Our only issue is the blinged-up design of the gold-coloured model we received – it looks a bit tacky and Dubai-like, if you get our meaning (the black version looks far less flashy). If you can accept the overall design then we guarantee you won’t be disappointed by the sound quality because this speaker excels on all fronts and is an absolute joy to listen to. Warmly recommended.
