Bowers & Wilkins PX review

 

High-end audio brand Bowers & Wilkins has made a few different wireless headphones in the past, but the PX is the company's first headphone to feature both Bluetooth and noise canceling. It's actually B&W's first noise-canceling headphone of any kind.

The Bowers & Wilkins PX headphone offers impressive build quality and excellent sound. Wireless operation is nearly flawless, battery life is very good, and a premium carrying case is included. Works well as a headset for making calls.

Competing models from Bose, Sony and Beats are less expensive, more comfortable and offer better noise cancelling. -- and its noise cancelling is quite on par with those same competitors. Battery isn't user replaceable.

Although not quite as strong as some competitors, the Bowers & Wilkins PX still ranks among the top wireless noise-canceling headphones available right now.

Bowers & Wilkins PX review: wireless noise-canceling nirvana

 

These headphones have no right to sound as good as they do while being as practical as they are

Best sound from noise-canceling headphones ; Plentiful battery life ; USB-C charging and connection versatility ; Durable and attractive design ; Headphones pause automatically when you take them off

Sound can be a bit too edgy and forward for listening at home ; More comfortable when worn on the move than sat in front of a desk ; Automatic pause can be finicky ; Bluetooth pairing is as nightmarish as most other wireless cans

Before the B&W PX, Sony’s 1000X were the headphones that I could most readily and casually grab on my way out the door. There were never any worries with those headphones about the sound or the fit proving fatiguing over the course of a full day. I...

Bowers & Wilkins PX

 

The Bowers & Wilkins PX wireless headphones are a rare misfire from the iconic audio company, with buggy operation and audio performance that changes when the noise cancellation is enabled.

Powerful audio performance with rich bass and crisp highs. Comfortable, stylish design. Cable included for wired use. Noise cancellation can be turned off. App allows for nuanced NC adjustments.

Expensive. Glitchy in testing. NC changes audio performance noticeably. Can't be used in wired passive mode—cable requires power.

Let's hope this is an early hiccup for the new team leading B&W. Since we tested two pairs, we're confident that we at least had an experience that will be similar to what customers will encounter, though it's possible we were sent two defective units....

Bowers & Wilkins PX wireless noise-cancelling headphones review: They demand a small sacrifice for silence

 

B&W's first noise-cancelling headphones sound so good that you'll happily to live with their quirks.

Wide soundstage with excellent audio separation ; Comfortable to wear during long listening sessions ; Long battery life ; Easy-to-use on-cup controls

More expensive than the competition ; Small drop in sound quality with ANC engaged ; USB-C charging port can’t be used to transmit audio ; Headphones cannot be used passively

Provided you can live with their quirks, the Bower’s & Wilkins PX headphones’ excellent audio fidelity and solid noise cancellation make these a set of headphones all but the most fussy audiophiles will be happy to own.

Bowers & Wilkins PX review: ANC and audiophile talents combine in these knock-out over-ears

 

Bowers & Wilkins first attempt at active noise-cancelling wireless headphones are accomplished and clever, they come with tonnes of tech but it is the

Four levels of active noise-cancellation ; Beautiful design notes ; Super soundstage with control over clarity and bass in equal measure ; Wear sensor that switches them off when not in use

Foldable design could have been adopted ; Pricier than some already direct rivals

The ANC-capable wireless headphones market has grown rapidly in recent times, so it makes great sense for Bowers & Wilkins to enter at this point. It does have some major rivals though, most notably in the recently announced
