Wireless headphones. It liberates you from wire tangle, but it also means yet another thing to charge and like smartphones and smartwatches, it is something you want to spend as little time as possible doing so. This is where Bowers & Wilkins PX7 Wireless Headphones is here to offer.
Like its predecessor, the original PX, it has USB-C for charging, but with the PX7, it now supports USB-C fast charging so it could be topped quickly, ready for your next trip. How fast? Bowers & Wilkins said a 15-minute charge will get you 5 hours of playback. I don’t know if that’s good (or fast), since nobody actually offers at this point. I guess, B&W is once ahead of the game?
In addition, the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 further boasts 43 mm drivers – the largest in the brand’s headphone collection – that are built and tuned by the same engineers responsible for the B&W 800 Series Diamond sneakers used in the legendary Abbey Road Studios.
Other features include adaptive noise cancellation, a whopping 30 hours of battery life, automatic music pause when you lift an ear cup (resume when you put it back), and a gorgeous design inspired by race cars, featuring woven carbon fiber composite arms that makes the PX7 way lighter than the original PX.
However, such audio and design bliss does come at a rather steep price. A pair of the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 Wireless Headphones will set you back at a wallet-crunching $399.99 when it becomes available in October.
PX5 share much of PX7 features like ANC, USB-C fast charging and the snazzy carbon fiber design while the PI3 and PI4 are connected wireless earbuds with the latter flaunting active noise cancellation.
Whichever you choose, be it PX7, PX5, PI3 or PI4, it will come with Qualcomm Bluetooth aptX Adaptive technology for 24-bit 48 kHz sound over wireless connection.
The PX5 and PI3 will sell for $299.99 and $199.99, respectively, while the PI4 has a retail price of $299.99. PX5 and PI3 will also be in the market in October, but the PI4 will only be out in January 2020.
