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 HEADPHONES

Great build quality. ; Easy to use controls. ; Great isolation and low leakage.

A bit too tight on some heads. ; Slightly bulky and cumbersome design. ; Bass delivery varies significantly across users. Sensitive to glasses.
