The Bowers & Wilkins Px8 will be a significant challenger to the best noise canceling headphones from Sennheiser and Sony, thanks to their 40mm Carbon Cone driver units for even more precise sound in -all frequency range and plush materials to further improve comfort.

You’ll want to stand out when you wear these headphones. Die-cast aluminum arms, brilliant diamond-cut metal details, and Nappa leather trim make up the whole design.

The supple leather undoubtedly contributed to the comfort levels for the listener, and the plush headband and ear pads felt feather-light with only a slight clamping force applied.

Do you think they will be heavy, because of all the metal? In reality, weight is best for us. The Px8’s total weight is arguably no more than the 10.8 ounces listed for the Px7 S2, and they felt lighter and more evenly distributed than some other wireless headphones we have used.

Price and Availability of the Bowers & Wilkins Px8

B&W matched the Px7 with about 30 hours of battery life in terms of battery life. That’s more than a day of playback with ANC enabled, with a fast 15-minute recharge for up to seven hours of additional listening time if you run out.

The B&W Px8 noise canceling headphones feature the same Bowers & Wilkins noise canceling technology as the Px7 S2. In addition, six high-performance microphones collaborate to offer the best results, with two monitoring the output from each drive unit in the earcup, two reacting to outside noise, and two assisting in providing quality of voice for calls while suppressing noise.

A wearable sensor will stop your audio when you lift an ear cup and will put them to sleep after a certain period. They instantly resume where you left off when you put them back.

The Music App, as before, facilitates the connection of the Px8 to a mobile device, provides sound tuning with an adjustable EQ, and allows users to choose their favourite way to cancel noise and wear the sensitivity of the sensor, all while monitoring the charge. headphone levels.

The Bowers & Wilkins Music App has been updated to coincide with the release of the Px8 to enable seamless wireless streaming from mobile playback devices and adjustable EQ, noise canceling modes, and level displays payment.

Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connection is provided, and compatible playback devices can use the aptX Adaptive codec. The lack of aptX Lossless Audio compatibility is unfortunate, but there are analog USB-C and 3.5mm cable connectors, with cables included in the included headphone carrying case.


These premium headphones appear to be quite promising. The design is spectacular, the noise cancellation is superb, and the initial impressions of the sound quality are incredible.

Of course, the B&W Px8 is too expensive for most people’s budgets at $699, but for those trying to find all-around premium products, it is worth considering.
