The Bowers & Wilkins PX is the first pair of wireless noise-cancelling headphones produced by the British company, and it’s quite a marvel. Not only do you get some pretty nice sound from it, it’s also designed to be intelligent and will adapt to your behaviour!
The PX works by responding to your natural behaviour. When you pick them up, they automatically switch on and resume playing what you were listening to. If you remove them and put them down, they go back to standby mode. You won’t have to fiddle with a switch just to turn your headphones on and off.
If you’re like us, you’ve probably experience this annoying trend that people love to start talking to you when you put your headphones on. The Bowers and Wilkins PX has this neat little function that lets you lift one ear cup and it will pause whatever’s playing. This allows you to pay full attention to whatever mundane small talk your colleague has in store for you. Once that harrowing experience is over, just pop the ear cup back on your ear and you’ll enter a blissful musical paradise once more.
Cancel that Noise!
Obviously, the PX has noise-cancelling capabilities, but we’re pretty impressed with how it goes above and beyond simply shutting external sounds out. For one, Bowers & Wilkins has optimised the active noise-cancelling function so that it doesn’t “crush” your music. They spent thousands of hours of research and experimentation just so you can listen to Katy Perry in a pristine sound environment.
This pair of headphones can also adapt to different environments to provide you with the best noise-cancelling. “City” allows traffic noise through so you can cross roads safely. “Office” allows voices through so you can hear colleagues when they talk to you. “Flight” completely cancels ambient engine noise. Now you can enjoy your music without putting your life in danger (even though some songs really are to die for)!
