The smallest speaker in the 800 Series Diamond range is also one of the most ground-breaking.

Packed with cutting-edge technologies never seen before in a speaker of its class, it’s the only stand-mounted speaker in the world to feature a diamond dome tweeter. For lifelike spaciousness and detail, no other small speaker comes close.

Bowers & Wilkins 805 D3

The unique Bowers & Wilkins 805 D3 is the only speaker of its size to feature the Diamond dome tweeter, as found on the rest of the Bowers & Wilkins 800 series, isolated in its own solid-body tweeter assembly for precise imaging and clarity.

Hear small details in a big way

Mounted atop the main enclosure, the Diamond dome tweeter in its solid aluminium housing delivers space, ambience and precise soundstage imaging.

Truly amazing sound

Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum™ cone mid/bass driver.

Smooth delivery

The 805 D3’s front-venting port allows superb weight from a speaker so compact, with Flowport™ technology speeding and smoothing the airflow for powerful bass without distortion.

Reviewed by the experts

A superbly engineered thoroughbred: Its transparency, dynamic capability, weight and control are something special.

This speaker regularly delivers transcendent moments where you feel like you’re breathing the same air as the musicians on the recording.
