In 1966, John Bowers and his lifelong friend Peter Hayward founded a manufacturing company, then called B&W Electronics, in Worthing, on the South coast of England. They agreed from the outset to live modestly and plough any profits back into the business to further research into the quest for the perfect loudspeaker.
Bowers & Wilkins now makes the world's most advanced home cinema and hi-fi speakers, including Abbey Road's reference system, Wireless Music Systems such as Zeppelin Air, and high-performance mobile-hi-fi headphones.
Today, there are so many options for hearing music it has become a constant companion. But are we really listening? For much of our daily lives, music has become incidental. It’s there in the background like sonic wall paper, but we’re focused on other activities we are pursuing at the time.
