For some reason, I keep having poor luck with B&W and their apps. After setting up my PX7 and formation flex, the app decides to forget the flex every now and then. Takes about 10 minutes to re-establish connection, even though my phone connects to it over Bluetooth. And still no customizable EQ, just the decibel adjustments for bass and treble

It's a pretty minimal app, though I prefer functional minimalism with apps, which provide only what is truly useful functionality, so it works well for me. The UI is clean and pleasing too. That said, it would be nice if the streaming quality control worked for all streaming platforms, and great if the EQ had midrange frequency band, which would earn 5 stars with this app for me.

Longtime user and dedicated fan of B&W, but this app is garbage. Pi5's are not connecting consistently; and when it does connect, the audio often skips/cuts out intermittently. Additionally, the App is not intuitive, and the "features" are either hidden or simply nonexistent. The older "Headphones" app from B&W is an improvement over this app, so I'm not sure what happened there.

Hi Justin, we're sorry to hear of your disappointment with the Music app; this will be the central control for all devices and development for the future. With any streaming glitch, we would start with a reboot of the phone, to clear caches. For support, please contact us directly, through Many thanks, Bowers & Wilkins.
