Believe it or not, the PX are Bowers& Wilkins’ firstly noise-cancelling headphones. While the company is better known for its premium work with high-end talkers, the PX are a pretty big win.
The headphones volunteer excellent tone and huge glances, but you’re going to pay for it. At $399, they’re pricier than many of their more established adversaries, including Bose and Sennheiser.
The PX headphones sport a sharp-worded ogle, stroked with a metallic finish in some smudges and carbon fiber-looking finish in other recognizes. The begin I received for this review was gray-haired, charcoal and black, but the headphones too come in a navy and amber variance.
They’ve also got a durable body-build, so you won’t have to worry too much about subduing them with personal computers or notebook in your knapsack. If you demand a little additional safety, they too come with a small, soft carrying case.
Unfortunately the headphones don’t fold up into a smaller chassis, so they will take up more seat in your baggage in comparison with the Sennheiser HD1 Wireless Headphones or Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones. Although they don’t fold up into a smaller figure, they are much more durable than the similarly priced headphones from Sennheiser and Bose.
The headphones are pleasant, but there’s not a ton of padding on the ears. Likened to the Sennheiser HD1 Wireless Headphones and the Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones, the cushion on the cans of the PX feel less soft.
The PX headphones from Bowers& Wilkins develop huge resound with or without the noise-cancelling feature active. When you allow the noise cancelling there’s some trade-off with excellence, but that’s to be expected, as sure-fire frequencies are amplified through this process.
The headphones sound better without any of the noise-cancelling pieces allowed, and it’s immense to have more power over how the sound cancelling is handled in different environments.
The Bluetooth range was great and I didn’t experience any sort of random signal losings. The on-ear governs allow you to adjust magnitude and playback, supremacy on or off, toggle the noise-cancelling aspect on or off and permit or incapacitate Bluetooth. You also can answer phone calls with the headphones by tapping the same button that controls playback.
The wireless playback buttons and call-answering piece all labor great on both an iPhone X and a MacBook Pro. I peculiarly liked that the interruption button is slightly conjured so it’s easy to pinpoint with your thumb.
Bowers& Wilkins advertises that the PX headphones will get 22 hours of battery life. Because sleep mode is activated when you take the headphones off, I often felt like I was coming a lot more than 22 hours out of them.
The auto-pausing and auto-sleep functionality are excellent standout boasts for the PX headphones. Married with the long-lasting battery life, the PX headphones are huge for long flights and late lights -- and everything in-between.
Bowers& Wilkins has a good-looking and huge reverberating duet of Bluetooth headphones. Pricing is genuinely the only major sticking point for the PX -- though it’s a big one for a company that’s somewhat brand-new to the space.
The Bowers& Wilkins PX wireless headphones will run you $399 at most retailers. That’s slightly more than both the Bose QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones (~$ 350) and the Sennheiser HD1 wireless headphones (~$ 350 ).
Indeed, $399 isn’t a crazy summarize for a really solid duet of Bluetooth headphones, but the company ought to consider sagging the price by $50 to $100 if it’s going to be really competitive in the space.
