Have you picked up the new Bowers & Wilkins Px8 Noise Canceling Headphones yet? If not and if you are a huge fan of the James Bond franchise, you are going to love the Bowers & Wilkins Px8 007 Edition Headphones. I certainly did not see that coming. But I am pretty pumped even though I know it’s nothing more than co-branding.
Anywho, to celebrate the high-end audio equipment maker’s new Bond collaboration and the 60 years since the release of Dr. No (United Artists, 1962), B&W has created a special edition of the Px8 wireless headphones featuring a Midnight Blue Nappa leather inspired by the dinner jacket worn by Bond in his first on-screen appearance.
Like the world’s most famous fictional not-so-secret secret agent who is supposed to be discreet, the references to Bond in this pair of cans are as discreet too.
In addition to the elegant Nappa leather, there is the premium metal detailing, an exclusive power slider in contrasting red, an iconic Gun Barrel design screen printed on the inside of each earcup, and the classic 007 logos on top of the earcup.
Beyond those, it is pretty much the Px8 you have already read about. The Bowers & Wilkins Px8 007 Edition Headphones are available now for US$799. You be the judge if the subtle – though admittedly stylish – 007 touches are worth the 100 dollars premium.
