Bowers & Wilkins is back and has just introduced its latest offering, the Px7 S2e Over-ear noise-canceling headphones. Priced at $399, these headphones are making waves with some significant upgrades and style options.
The star of the show here is the Digital Signal Processing (DSP). It’s been fine-tuned to deliver 24-bit audio from compatible streaming services, promising “unmatched detail, dynamics, and spaciousness.” The earlier Px7 S2 left some wanting in terms of versatility, but this new DSP aims to rectify that, making the headphones more precise and analytical while retaining their fun factor.
These headphones feature aptX Adaptive for top-notch streaming, ensuring you make the most of that DSP magic. Additionally, with USB-C and 3.5mm connections, you’re covered for all your music sources.
Sound quality is further enhanced by 40mm custom-designed drive units, strategically angled for a more natural soundstage. Six microphones in the ear cups power the noise-canceling system, guaranteeing an immersive listening experience.
What’s really cool is the integration with the Bowers & Wilkins Music app, allowing you to fine-tune the EQ, adjust noise-canceling settings, and connect with other B&W products. Plus, it supports direct music streaming from services like TIDAL and Qobuz, with Android Fast Pair for easy connections.
With a robust 30-hour battery life and rapid 15-minute charging for an extra seven hours, these headphones are perfect for travelers. Google Find My Device is also built-in, so misplacing them is less of a concern. The color options have been updated and expanded, including a fresh Forest Green choice. Bowers & Wilkins is clearly aiming to challenge Sony’s flagship headphones in the premium audiophile market, and with their audio prowess, they might just succeed. While Sony still holds the noise-cancellation crown, B&W’s upgrades are a compelling reason to consider these headphones.
