    B&O is Bang and Olufsen, the OP is asking about B&W.

    The last time I was at my Apple Store, last week, I did not notice B&W or B&O on the shelves or on display.
    I think I only saw Bose QC35 and various Beats of course.

    I'm not sure the excellent P7 Wireless is widely available yet (Best Buy is due to get them this week I think).
    Maybe Apple wants the wireless options in store.

    Too bad, my parents still use an original Zeppelin (with a 30 pin dock!) in their house for music without a single hiccup. I don't even know if they have ever rebooted it.

    Bowers & Wilkins is one the greatest audio brands! P7 wireless headphones were released some months ago and the excellent P5 wireless headphones (recently awarded - what hifi headphone product of the year) were released last year. Both support AAC Bluetooth Apple codec, and the T7 portable Bluetooth speaker too. So it seems that Apple is pulling Beats competitors from the Store...

    Really unfortunate if true. I own the wired P5 'phones and they are excellent.

    You should see the new "P9" wireless...drool worthy. I've had the P5’s and loved them (eventually sold them and bought the Sennheiser Momentum Over-ear in the beautiful "Jet/Piano Black" which sounded a bit better to my ears. Both have outstanding audio heritage (Sennheiser and B&W), build quality, design and sound. I also own the wired P7 which are awesome. Right now, nothing is going to get my Momentum Wireless AEBT's off of my ears for a while. These are the finest, most comfortable wireless headphones I've ever heard or worn.

    Yep, I know all about the P9 and was considering them.
    I went ahead and grabbed the P7 Wireless and they are bliss.
    I am sure the P9s are amazing but double the price amazing and no wireless?
    They are also opened back which is great for audio quality but bad for the office.

    I like the Bowers & Wilkins wireless headphones except for one thing, they don't have noise cancellation.

    I have the B&W P5s (wired) and they are easily the most comfortable headphones I have ever had - they have - quite literally - travelled the world with me, and they are in my briefcase, or rucksack permanently =, when they are not over my ears.

    At home, I have the P7s (wired) - a superb pair of headphones.

    Anyway, I love the headphones produced by B&W; they are exceptionally comfortable, extremely attractive in appearance, built superbly of high grade (natural) quality materials and their sound quality is fantastic.

    And yes, I will admit to being hugely tempted by the P9s - the reviews are all extremely positive, and the headphones themselves are gorgeous.

    I finally delved into the world of wireless headphones and purchased a pair of wireless P5s - they are awesome and make my old Bose Triports sound like crap. I think I may go for the P7s eventually (my local Best Buy store only had the wireless P5s in stock not the P7s).

    What is the difference, Apple never discounts them anyway.

    Got P5 S2 myself a few days ago from BB at $149. Talk about a freaking steal!

    Not only are they not at Apple stores any longer but they do not even support El Capitan with the MM-1 due to USB incompatibility.

    How?! Was that just a discounted price? Congrats on snaring that deal.

    Has anyone been able to compare the P5 and P7 wireless? I'm very happy with my P5 wired and am not sure how these compare to that or each other.

    I didn't find the P5s that comfortable, I did own two pairs, both started to hurt after an hour or so. They traveled the world with me, and finally broke so I bite the bullet and brought the P9s and all I can say is do it!
    They are worth every cent.
