Bowers & Wilkins introdueced new headphones that are fantastic package, boasting excellent sound quality, successful noise-cancelling and a smart design. Simply dubbed PX, this headphones are the company’s first wireless headphones with built-in noise-cancelling.
Controlling PX feels completely intuitive, thanks to built-in sensor that respond to the way you naturally use a set of headphones. Put it on and it turns on.
Take it off and it returns to the stand-up mode, or what B&W refers to as a “low-power state”, which should help conserve some of the claimed 22-hour battery life. Lift an ear cup to talk, or hang it round your neck, and PX pauses the music, resuming playback when you’re ready to listen.
PX’s active noise cancelling signal has been painstakingly refined to block out ambient sound without affecting the listening experience. With three environment filters (Flight, City and Office) PX always delivers optimum isolation, wherever you are.
The headphones are constructed predominantly from lightweight aluminium and use what B&W refers to as “ballistic nylon shell” to cover the outer earpads and the top of the headband. This means the PXs feel both reassuringly solid yet perfectly portable.
“The finest wireless, noise-cancelling headphones you can buy.” And, can be yours for $399.
