Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series Overview

Bowers and Wilkins are highly-regarded in the audio industry for their iconic and distinctively designed craftsmanship of loudspeakers, home cinema, headphones and more recently, even wireless speakers.

Amongst the enormous growth of the wireless speaker market over the last decade, HiFi separates still have validity for those that enjoy the “journey” of audio and the impossible pursuit of perfection.

Dedicated HiFi setups allow the listener to experiment endlessly with different Bookshelf speakers, Standmount speakers, subwoofers, amplifiers and even turntables until the heart is content and that’s why we’re here today to give you a quick overview of the Bowers & Wilkins 600 series.

Bowers & Wilkins 607 Bookshelf Speakers - £399 per pair

The B&W 607s kickstart the 600 range of Bookshelf speakers and are perfect for intimate listening if you have a smaller size  room. 

Featuring a 5-inch continuum cone taken from the legendary 800 series diamond, the 607s deliver an open and detailed performance that brings out the best in recordings.

The decoupled double dome tweeter is a thoughtful feature that keeps vibration from other drivers to a minimum by breaking up the tweeter from the midrange drivers - a Bowers & Wilkins classic feature.

They have undergone a refreshed aesthetic design with a magnetic grille and the port has been relocated to the back of the speaker.

Available in matte black or white

Floorstands available (sold separately)

What we love

  • Understated design and manageable size means they are not too intrusive as speakers
  • Impressive bass and vocal clarity
  • Our best choice for versatile listening on a budget or as your first ever set of Bookshelf speakers


  • We honestly couldn’t think of any when you consider the price!

Bowers & Wilkins 606 Bookshelf Speakers - £549 per pair

The B&W 606s are a step up from the 607s in terms of size, but with that larger footprint unlocks a new realm of bass and midrange clarity. 

Suited to slightly larger size areas than the 607s, these speakers need a little more room to breathe. 

The 606s comes with a larger 6.5 inch Continuum cone and allows for greater precision and detail than its younger brother. They even featured in WhatHiFi’s Hall of Fame in 2019 and won best stereo speakers of the same year. That’s quite an achievement.

Available in matte black or white

Floorstands available (sold separately)

What we love

  • Thanks to the larger driver, the soundstage is much wider than the size of the product would indicate
  • Looks amazing on a set of floor stands
  • Our best choice if your speakers will be a focal point in your room or if using with a turntable in between


  • Could be quite imposing in a smaller room

Bowers & Wilkins 603 Standmount Speakers - £1299 per pair

The B&W 603s are an epic set of floorstanding speakers, built for versatility. Use them as a dedicated stereo pair or in a home theatre set up and these really excel.

These are the largest speakers in the 600 range and if you’re a lover of bass, then look no further. The separate mid-range speaker means the 2 paper bass cones can focus solely on enhancing your listening experience with powerful bass.

It’s not just bass these speakers do well at, these can fill a large open plan space with an incredibly wide soundstage. They deliver stunning vocal clarity, bringing a wonderful presence to the vocalists which gives enormous credit to the engineering team at Bowers & Wilkins.

Available in matte black or white

What we love

  • Deeply impactful and layered sound with deep bass
  • Hard-to-beat vocal clarity with an exceptional sense of presence
  • Our best choice if using as the front left and right of a 5.1 home cinema system


  • Floorstanding aesthetic will divide people
  • Will overpower small rooms

If you would like a dedicated subwoofer to use in addition to any of the speakers above, Bowers & Wilkins offer a range of subwoofers that partner up extremely well with the 600 series. Ranging from the more compact ASW608 (perfect for smaller rooms) to the ASW610 and finally to the ASW610XP (big bass for bigger rooms), find the right sub to take your audio to the next level.

All of the 600 series can also feature as part of a 5.1 surround sound system. The esteemed B&W HTM6 can form the centre channel offering crystal clear vocals and sound with the 603s as the left and right and finally the 606s or 607s are ideal for surround channels.
