The pinnacle of audio perfection

The Bowers & Wilkins 800 D3 is the pinnacle of audio perfection.  The speaker professionals trust to deliver true sound. The latest version of our legendary 800 series flagship range is the most groundbreaking yet, introducing a radical redesign and bristling with next-generation technologies. For sheer unadulterated musical realism, no other speaker range comes close.

Bowers & Wilkins 800 D3 are capable of delivering pristine, natural sound that will leave you speechless. 

Hear Small Details In A Big Way

Mounted atop the main enclosure, the Diamond dome tweeter in its solid aluminium housing delivers space, ambience and precise soundstage imaging.

Less Resonance, More Dispersion

The Turbine Head’s massive midrange housing is carefully shaped and inert, ensuring voices and instruments are delivered with extreme purity.

Truly Amazing Sound

Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum™ cone midrange driver.

Nimble And Powerful

Solid, dramatic bass is delivered through the rigidity and lightness of the uniquely-shaped variable thickness Aerofoil™ cone.

Braced For Impact

Unwanted resonances can blunt the punch of the sound: advanced Matrix bracing keeps the cabinet ultra-rigid and damps out superfluous vibrations.

Stable Foundations

Perfect sound is about moving air, not the speakers: a stable plinth makes for easy positioning, then keeps it rock-solid for listening.

The sleepy coastal town of Worthing in South England might not look like a hotbed of 1960s freewheeling experimentation, but for audio fans it’s a place that’s synonymous with innovation. Thanks to the first Bowers & Wilkins speakers built here in the early years of the company, music lovers could experience albums such as Sgt. Pepper and Pet Sounds in new, mind-expanding depth and clarity.
