Maserati and Bowers & Wilkins present “Seven Notes”

British hi-fi pioneers Bowers and Wilkins have collaborated with Maserati to create an in-car sound system of best-in-class audio quality. Built and acoustically fitted for the Maserati Quattroporte, the innovative system features 15 speakers powered by a multichannel HARMAN DSP amplifier and its QuantumLogic surround technology. The result is an immersive sound experience tailored to a traveler’s needs, putting you right where you want to be in the sound stage depending on your selected listening mode.

Supporting this unprecedented sound system, the two companies have commissioned original music featuring sampled recordings of the Maserati V8 engine. The project entitled “Seven Notes” was produced by renown artist Howie B who usually works his magic in the studio with artists such as Bjork, U2, and Tricky. To share the news of the Quattroporte’s singular stereo design, the “Seven Notes” project has also gone on tour, exhibiting the collaborative sound and design of Bowers and Wilkins and Maserati in Dubai, Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo, Los Angeles, New York and London through a series of varying and exclusive performances.

Listening to Howie B’s “Seven Notes” tracks through the Bowers and Wilkins P3 headphones is a treat if you can’t make it to one of the exhibitions. The headphones are amazingly comfortable and surprisingly slim and sleek in form. The white version is also quite feminine in appearance which is great for those who want stellar sounding headphones but are bored of looking like DJ wannabes. Sonically, the P3 features a big bass and a wide stereo soundstage that will warm up the sound of your mp3 collection. Checking out the “Seven Notes” track “Note Two” you can really feel the roar and baseline musicality of the Maserati V8 design.
