Bowers & Wilkins has launched its special PX7 Carbon Edition wireless headphones, the new flagship over-ear headphones that feature adaptive noise cancelling technology.
Marking the 10th anniversary of the company’s first-ever headphone design, the P5, the new PX7 Carbon Edition headphones use carbon-fiber composite reinforcement in their construction. Finished in black with diamond-cut detailing on each ear cup, they share the same specs as the existing PX7 models.
This includes the delivery of True Sound and maximum resolution while “maintaining complete neutrality and tonal balance,” says B&W. They include bespoke 43.6mm drivers, specially designed, developed and tuned by the same renowned Bowers & Wilkins engineering
team responsible for the 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers.
The PX7 Carbon Edition supports the latest wireless codecs, including the recently launched Bluetooth aptX Adaptive technology, allowing the transfer of genuine high-resolution music wirelessly at 24-bit/48kHz streaming quality.
Made from a carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer that is both light and stiff, they also come with memory foam ear pads for passive noise isolation and adaptive technology for active noise cancellation that can intelligently sense the background environment and automatically select the appropriate type and level of noise cancellation. Use the companion App to select an Ambient-Pass-Through feature that allows certain external sounds to be heard without removing the headset.
The PX7 Carbon Edition has proximity sensors built into both ear cups so your music is automatically paused when either ear cup is lifted and automatically resumes when placed back on your ear. At the same time, PX7 Carbon Edition also offers push-button access to Voice Assistant Support via either Siri or Google Assistant depending on the type of phone used.
Finally, the PX7 Carbon Edition’s long battery life of up to 30 hours from a single charge (with ANC activated) is backed by a 15min quick-charge facility that will enable five more hours of use.
B&W’s PX7 Carbon Edition will be available in Canada in October for $500.
