Bowers & Wilkins debuts T7 portable Bluetooth speaker

Bowers & Wilkins has entered the high-end portable Bluetooth speaker fray with the new T7, which is set to hit stores in October for $350 (£300/€350; pricing in Australia was not announced at this time).

Here's what the company had to say about the new speaker, which delivers 18 hours of battery life, in its press release:

"Bowers & Wilkins T7 combines Bluetooth wireless streaming with compact size, rechargeable convenience, Bowers & Wilkins’ legendary approach to high-quality sound and the first commercial application of Bowers & Wilkins Micro Matrix technology. The result is Hi-Fi untethered."

"T7 is Bowers & Wilkins first Bluetooth speaker, and as with everything Bowers & Wilkins does, T7 is all about sound. The compact speaker features the first commercially available application of Bowers & Wilkins Micro Matrix technology. Derived from the Matrix internal bracing used in the reference 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers found in Abbey Road Studios, and developed as part of Bowers & Wilkins next-generation automotive audio concepts, the Micro Matrix honeycomb structure provides substantial cabinet stiffening and a solid platform for the T7’s drive units."

"T7 uses two (patent-pending) force-canceling high-output bass radiators to extend low frequencies, which help deliver staggering range, depth and richness. The T7’s two highly optimized 2 inch (50mm) drive units are the result of a very long evaluation process. A process undertaken by some of the very best listeners in the business: Bowers & Wilkins acoustic engineers. Plus, the use of aptX Bluetooth ensures high-definition detail isn’t lost in wireless transmission when you stream audio directly from any Bluetooth-enabled PC, tablet or mobile phone."
