Bowers&Wilkins 700-Series




700 Series: Elevating Home Audio to Perfection

Precision sound for sophisticated listening.

Studio Sound Comes Home


The 700 Series is defined by elegance and driven by performance. The range is enabled by technologies first developed for our flagship 800 Series Diamond, and with eight models to choose from, there’s a speaker to suit every home. Inspired by recording studios, made for living rooms: with the 700 Series, studio sound comes home.


702 S3

702 S3's Carbon Dome tweeter is housed in an all-new Solid Body Tweeter assembly, while with its new downward-firing port configuration and the trio of Aerofoil Profile bass cones, it delivers bass that’s both profoundly deep and endlessly articulate.


Goosebumps guaranteed

Our flagship, the 702 S3, is a state-of-the-art floor-standing speaker that defines new standards for performance in its class. If you want the best, this is it.


A house for high frequencies

The 700 Series features the latest generation of our iconic Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top housing. Its new, more elongated form incorporates a longer tube-loading system to produce an even more free and open sound with high frequencies. The carefully decoupled housing is milled from a single solid block of aluminium to better resist resonance.


Sharper detail

Carbon Dome tweeters are purpose-built for the 700 Series. Delivering a dramatic improvement on the aluminium double-dome tweeter, they raise the breakup threshold to 47kHz, for pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail.


Truly amazing sound

Thanks to its composite construction, the Continuum™ cone avoids abrupt transitions in behavior that can impair the performance of a conventional drive unit. The result is a more open, neutral performance that delivers voices and instruments with precision and transparency.


Clean and clear Every three-way loudspeaker in the new 700 Series has a dedicated midrange cone using four key Bowers & Wilkins technologies: the Continuum cone, FST™, Biomimetic Suspension, and midrange decoupling, the latter ensuring minimal interference from the operation of the loudspeaker’s bass drivers.

A triumph of science Developed using advanced computer modeling techniques, the Aerofoil™ Profile bass cone has a variable thickness, providing stiffness and rigidity where it’s needed most. The result: deep and dynamic bass.
