Enjoy Hi-Res sound anywhere in your home, with the Bowers & Wilkins Formation Flex.

Flex for flexibility
The Formation Flex speaker does it all. Use it as a standalone speaker in any room you want quality, Hi-Res sound. Pair it for true stereo sound or use it with the Formation Bar and Bass as the rear speakers in a 5.1 home cinema system.

Top quality sound
Engineered to true hi-fi standards, the Flex delivers class-leading sound. Inside the stylish case is a performance tweeter and woven glass fibre woofer. Driven by a 50 watt amplifier, this 2-way speaker produces all the clarity and punch you’d expect from this world-class hi-fi brand. Thanks to DSP (Digital Signal Processing) and Dynamic EQ, you get the very best sound to suit your room.

Link two for stereo sound
Use the app to link two together, and the Flex takes on a whole new ability. Stereo speakers give you the true sound of the mix, with the soundstage now sounding just like it did at the recording – live or studio based. Stereo speakers also fill the room, meaning more people in the room get to hear more of the sound.

Use as rear speakers in Formation 5.1 system
If you enjoy movies as much as music then why not turn your Formation speaker system into a 5.1 surround sound home cinema. Use the Formation Bar and Bass with two Flex speakers at the rear and prepare to be totally immersed in sound.

Formation sound all around your home
The Bowers & Wilkins Formation system offers high-end sound quality with effortless, multi-room versatility. It uses a patented, robust mesh network for perfect speaker synchronisation all around your home. Set-up is quick and easy and Formation is compatible with all popular streaming systems, including Bluetooth, AirPlay, Roon and Spotify. For the best possible sound, Formation is also compatible with 24 bit/96kHz Hi-Res music files.

High-resolution sound
With the ability to stream up to 24 bit/96kHz, the Formation is capable of streaming at twice the fidelity of its leading competitor. This gives the sound purer harmonics for a more life-like sound. It also means you get to hear your Hi-Res music files to their full potential.

Robust, Formation Wireless Technology
Developed to run independently from your home wi-fi, Formation Wireless Technology delivers an unbeatably stable connection. The more Formation units you add, the stronger the mesh becomes, meaning you can stretch to the furthest parts or your home where wi-fi may be patchy. The mesh also helps deliver perfect synchronisation between all the Formation speakers in your home.

Easy to set up
Simply download the Bowers & Wilkins Home app from the Apple or Google stores and you’re ready to go. Set-up is fast and intuitive, with each additional speaker clearly identified on the app.

Wide-ranging compatibility
Whichever way you choose to stream your music, the Formation is likely to be compatible. With built-in wi-fi and Bluetooth, you can stream from a huge range of sources. Formation is also compatible with the most popular streaming systems and services, including Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect (Premium account required) and the multi-room system, Roon.

Step up to a more musical wireless speaker system, with the Bowers and Wilkins Formation Flex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets better with age and really shines with vinyl I have owned the Flex for around a year now. At first I wasn’t particularly convinced; certainly it was a more ‘hi-fi’ sound than Sonos but was it really worth the premium. Well fast forward to today and I have to say, yes it was. This little speaker has really won me over and it’s especially rewarding with vinyl (streamed via my Formation Audio) and higher quality streams. Also the Bowers and Wilkins music app is now greatly improved (I actually prefer it to the Sonos app) and the build quality and aesthetics are first class. If you’re someone who values sound quality and industrial design and you want a speaker for your kitchen or a small room then look no further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bowers & Wilkins foundation Flex I brought this speaker for work purposes. A large enough sound to fill a classroom or small hall. I love it so much I brought a second one and now just muse them at home. Awesome sound, brilliant looking and superb build quality

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great speaker. Simple elegance I bought two of these babies. One sits in the kitchen and one in the living room. The app allows me to play music on either or both making the set up great for all social occasions. The sound is as good as you’d expect and one speaker alone is powerful enough to ruin your relationship with next door. Great product. Would give it 5 stars if the app was a bit less clunky and had more functionality. RC advised me of this but I still went ahead and do not regret my decision. Will buy the new Zeppelin shortly to further fill the house with wonderful sound. It can be connected to Formation products which Is perfect. Had the first Zeppelin and it was amazing. Quite excited.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compliments the Formation Bar and Bass I bought the B and W Formation Bar and Bass. I’m really impressed with the setup but I felt there was something missing. After reading a number of reviews, I decided to spend the extra and add the Formation Flex. It was the right decision and I’m very happy with the result. It has rounded off the Formation setup for me and if you want a great 5.1 wireless system, I don’t think you can beat the Bowers and Wilkins Formation series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Powerful Single and Mult wireless speaker I bought for a week and the Formation series surprise me this time. It has signatures BW sound and powerful watts in put. Wireless is flowless and easy to set up. Best speaker ever for wireless. Sonos can go out the market. Formation provide Roon and AirPlay2 as well with 0 lag for both!!!
