Bowers & Wilkins - 702 S2


Enquire about this product

Inspired by recording studios. Made for living rooms.
Bring the breathtaking clarity and definition of studio sound home with the new 700 Series.

Replacing the CM Series, the range combines studio-grade 800 Series Diamond technologies with purpose-built innovations to elevate home audio to an entirely new level. And all this from room-friendly cabinets designed to fit beautifully into your home environment. 

The 700 Series is an entirely new range of speakers. Compared with the outgoing CM Series, every transducer has changed and radically improved. To do this, we’ve borrowed some of the most advanced technologies from our flagship 800 Series Diamond, adapting them to suit a more attainable price point. And we’ve introduced entirely new technologies, designed specifically for this range. 

From artist to listener
A great speaker does more than allow you to hear music. It acts as a bridge – a way to close the divide between listener and performance. Listen to 700 Series speakers, and music feels alive. You discover details you never noticed before. You can place every instrument, every note, every intake of breath, with flawless accuracy. You can sense the emotion in the room. Suddenly, you’re no longer just listening to a recorded performance. You’re right there, with the performer in the studio.

Bring the cinema home
Providing the ideal balance of high-performance acoustics and living room-friendly dimensions, 700 Series speakers are a superlative choice for home cinema sound. Pair them with one of the two centre-channel speakers in the range and the powerful DB4S subwoofer, and you’re set for a truly transformational movie experience.

Introducing the Flagship 702 S2
Featuring a Carbon Dome™ tweeter in a solid-body housing and a decoupled Continuum™midrange, the 700 Series’ flagship floorstander brings studio-quality sound to your home audio set up. The speaker relays textural details with goosebump-inducing accuracy, making even large-scale recordings sound stunningly lifelike.

Solid Body tweeter
Milled from a solid block of aluminium, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimised housing for the tweeter – one that’s exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances.

Carbon Dome™ tweeter
Carbon Dome tweeters are a brand new technology purpose-built for the 700 Series. Delivering a dramatic improvement on the aluminium double-dome tweeter, they raise the breakup threshold to 47kHz, for pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail.

Continuum™ Cone
First introduced with the 800 Series Diamond, the Continuum cone represents the biggest step-change in midrange performance since Kevlar. Its woven, coated material provides highly controlled break-up, resulting in a more open, neutral midrange.

Decoupled midrange
The midrange driver in the floor-standers feature a decoupled design, adapted from a similar system in the 800 Series Diamond. Decoupling reduces cabinet colouration, and boosts midrange clarity.
