Since many of us are spending more time at home, we may be grabbing our headphones more often. For many of our customers, the headphone of choice is the Bowers & Wilkins Px7, a feature-rich, active noise-canceling design that is comfortable and sound, well, like Bowers & Wilkins.
The Px7 is wireless using Bluetooth 5.0, so you can pair them with a myriad of different devices. They provide up to 30 hours of playtime, and you can get about 5 hours of active playtime off a 15-minute charge.
Exceptionally well built, the Px7 weighs in at around 310 grams (versus others that weigh in about 250 grams); they don’t feel heavy and balance on the head nicely.
These are incredibly comfortable headphones to wear, with a nicely cushioned ear cup that encases your ear but does not fully cover them. The cups are soft and plush, with ample room and zero jaw stress.
The right-hand ear cup houses all of the control buttons, including a sliding on/off activator, volume up/volume down button, and a center button that pulls many tasks, including advancing, skip, answer a call, and more. The other earcup has one control button, which cycles the noise canceling on and off, plus activates the low, high, and transparency modes.
The Px7 supports APTxHD (an excellent audio codec for high-resolution audio files) and a wired connect capability. You can choose between a 3.5MM jack or a USB cable and a USB-C connection. With USB-C, you can charge the headphones while listening, a feature missing from many other brands. You can even multi-pair to more than one device simultaneously; some headphones don’t allow this.
The Bluetooth connectivity is solid, and the signal distance is very impressive.
“I have been enjoying the Px7 for several years, making several international trips with them. In-flight, they do an amazing job of bringing the music or movie forward while eliminating the background noise. The phone-app allows for quick and easy noise cancellation adjustment despite the lack of EQ customization. One feature I love – when the drink cart comes by, drop the headphones around your neck, and they pause until placed back into position. All in all, the Px7 offered the best sound of every under $400 headphone I tried, and they perform really well.” – John H, Flemington
How do the Px7’s sound?
The active noise canceling in the Px7 is some of the best available. You won’t experience any hissing or white noise, and the music is nicely isolated. The Bowers & Wilkins Px7 offers a fast, more natural sound, not bass heavy but still very punchy. There is excellent midrange, which is where the human ear interprets the majority of instruments and vocals. The midrange is where the Px7 excels. Musical lyrics are very transparent, and overall, the sound is very realistic, very apparent, with a depth of audio experience.
There is also a B&W smartphone app that offers some excellent features and sound modes (and is ideal when we resume flying again), getting the recycling pick-up ready, or relaxing with the Bach Concerto for Two Violins in D Minor.
With the outstanding balance of quality sound, build, and comfort, you’ll love the Px7 from Bowers & Wilkins. And this explains why it has become of our best-selling active noise-canceling headphones.
