Wireless audio systems are the new standard for convenience and whole-home connectivity. But often that means compromise – lower quality and breaks in the sound. Introducing the Bowers & Wilkins Formation® Suite – the first wireless audio system that lives up to the exacting standards of Bowers & Wilkins. Exclusive Formation® Wireless Technology combines perfected speaker synchronization using a proprietary mesh network and industry-leading 96kHz/24-bit high streaming capability. That means an immersive, seamless, high-fidelity soundstage, wirelessly. It redefines the standard while remaining true to our heritage groundbreaking innovation. It’s why Bowers & Wilkins like to think that the Formation® Suite is the Highest Form of Sound™.

Bowers & Wilkins performance sound – With over 50 years of performance acoustic technology built into Formation Wedge experience high fidelity sound like no other wireless system.

The Formation Flex is a great entry to high-performance audio and powerful enough to be used independently as a standalone speaker in any room or in a pair for stereo sound. Sync it with other Formation speakers as part of a wireless whole-home system or use as surround channels with a Formation Bar and Formation Bass for an impressive 5.1 experience.

The same 26 mm (1 in) decoupled double dome aluminium tweeter from our award-winning 600 series speaker range makes use of a Nautilus tube and a Neodymium magnet to deliver a pure and precise soundscape.

The woven glass fibre bass/midrange cone delivers punchy, clear, and uncoloured sound.

The ultra-rigid enclosure minimises colouration.

Dynamic EQ
By optimizing the performance of the system in real-time it allows for higher-level performance, with less distortion than other wireless speakers.
