The flagship model in the 800 Series Diamond range is more than a speaker. It’s the culmination of half a century of acoustic research and engineering, and the pinnacle of audio performance, offering unmatched levels of clarity and realism.

When John Bowers founded his company in 1966, he dreamed of manufacturing the perfect loudspeaker. We’ve been pursuing his vision ever since, and now, 50 years later, we’ve taken our biggest and boldest leap forward yet in the shape of the 800 D3.

The 800 D3 is the outcome of the most ambitious research and development project Bowers & Wilkins have yet undertaken. With 686 changes from the model it replaces the 800 D3 isn’t an evolution, it’s a revolution.

It’s driven by technological innovation. From drive units to cabinet geometry, every major component has been rethought and reinvented. And the rule book for loudspeaker design has been ripped up and rewritten in the process. The future of loudspeaker technology starts here.

Diamond Dome Tweeters
Incredibly light, yet unbelievably rigid, Diamond is the ultimate tweeter material. Delivering the most revealing, natural treble you will ever hear.

Continuum cone
The Continuum cone delivers pristine midrange performance by effectively negating the break-up behaviour that can adversely effect this all-important part of the spectrum.

Aerofoil cone
The Aerofoil cone’s variable thickness provides added strength where it is needed to maintain its pistonic shape, delivering rock solid bass.

Turbine Head
The Turbine head is the ideal shape for sound dispersion, while its internally ribbed, aluminium construction ensures that it is acoustically inert.
