The new PX from Bowers & Wilkins feature 50 years of award-winning acoustic engineering in a pair of headphones so smart they respond intuitively to you. We believe PX sets a new standard in noise cancelling: we’ve spent thousands of hours developing best-in-class noise cancellation that doesn’t adversely affect sound quality.
PX is Bowers & Wilkins’ first smart headphone, with built-in sensors that allow listeners to control music in a way that feels completely intuitive. PX works by responding intelligently to natural user behaviour. Pick them up and the headphones will switch on immediately and automatically resume playing your music. Put them down and they return to stand-by mode. Lift an ear cup to talk, or hang them around your neck, and PX will pause the music, resuming playback when you’re ready to listen. The class-leading battery provides 22 hours of playback in wireless noise cancellation mode, or 33 hours in wired noise cancellation mode.
The design of PX upholds Bowers & Wilkins’ tradition of using only high-quality materials, while offering a distinctive contemporary look. The headphones feature ergonomically designed elliptical ear cushions for superior comfort and the best possible acoustic seal, and come with a soft leather headband and a robust ballistic nylon ear cup exterior.
The PX drive units are derived from the company’s reference quality P9 Signature headphones and feature the same angled design for a more convincing soundstage. Its smart suspension system allows PX to produce the precision required for great high frequencies up to 30kHz, as well as the compliance needed for deep and dynamic bass. Measuring 40mm for each full range driver, the innovative placement of the transducers results in a more natural listening experience and vastly improved stereo performance.
The active noise cancelling function has been refined to provide optimum isolation without ‘crushing’ the music – a process that took thousands of hours of development and testing. The headphones also use the latest aptX HD Bluetooth technology supporting up to 48kHz 24-bit resolution, and offer full digital audio through a USB connection. Further enhancement of the audio experience is achieved via upsampling and processing the audio at 768kHz, preserving the best possible audio quality.
To provide an optimum listening experience in different environments, PX has three adaptive noise cancelling modes, which users select with a custom app. ‘City’ allows through traffic noise so you can cross roads safely. ‘Office’ allows through voices so you can hear colleagues when they talk to you. ‘Flight’ massively supresses ambient engine noise. The app also allows firmware updates.
PX is future proofed, allowing new firmware and enhanced performance features to be added as they become available via the custom-built app.
PX uses the latest aptX® HD Bluetooth® technology for the best possible wireless performance, too.
The driving force of PX is a pair of bespoke Bowers & Wilkins drive units derived from the reference P9 Signature headphone. A fully digital headphone, PX uses the latest aptX HD Bluetooth transmission system at 24-bit resolution for a stunningly accurate performance.
Intuitive User Experience
PX uses built-in sensors to enhance the way you instinctively use a set of headphones. Put them on your head and they’ll switch on: take them off and they’ll return to stand-by mode. Lift an ear cup to talk or hang them round your neck and PX will pause the music, resuming playback when you’re ready to listen. It’s as if the headphones are an extension of you, anticipating your needs.
PX’s active noise cancelling signal has been painstakingly refined to block out ambient sound without affecting the listening experience.
With three environment filters (Flight, City and Office) controlled through the companion app, PX always delivers optimum isolation, wherever you are.
Superior Comfort And Battery Life
The design and construction of PX is lightweight but robust. They feature a lightweight frame combined with a ballistic nylon shell and beautifully soft leather ear cushions. The design also folds fla t so PX can slip easily into a slim bag, and with 22 hours of wireless listening from one charge, PX won’t let you down.
PX is compatible with popular Bluetooth® devices, including mobile phones, tablets and computers.
PX is available in either Space Grey or Soft Gold etched-aluminium finish.
