Bowers & Wilkins has produced high caliber loudspeakers and other audio devices since 1966. With their intricate designs and unmatched quality, they have dominated the audio system business for decades.

With humble beginnings originating from South England, the company’s focus was to perfect their audio products and make their mark on the music industry. From basic loudspeakers to home theater systems, B&W provides consumers with an immersive audial encounter like no other. B&W’s mission is to offer revolutionary speaker technology coupled with state-of-the-art audio engineering for the most pleasurable  experience possible.

B&W was founded with the vision of creating loudspeakers that “exemplify purity of sound.” Their speakers are widely used in the music industry, giving artists and audio engineers the finest quality sounds to listen to when working on tracks. Residential customers also benefit from B&W’s systems, as home theaters and even popular luxury vehicles have these highly valued speakers equipped.
