Bowers & Wilkins, the renowned British premium audio brand, has introduced the Px8, their new flagship wireless headphone. Building on the widespread acclaim bestowed upon the multi-Award-winning Px7 S2 model, the new Px8 establishes a new benchmark for sound, build, and finish in the active noise-cancelling wireless headphone category.
The Px8 is powered by the same active noise cancelling wireless technology as the Px7 S2, which is already one of the best-sounding headphones in its class. Px8 takes that excellent performance to new levels of detail, resolution, and spaciousness thanks to all-new handmade 40mm Carbon Cone drive units.
Px8’s Carbon Cone drive units, like the Px7 S2, are meticulously oriented inside each earcup to ensure a consistent distance relative to the listener’s ear from every point across the surface of each driver, resulting in a more immersive and extremely accurate soundstage. The result is the best sound quality Bowers & Wilkins has ever delivered from a pair of wireless headphones.
The Px8 combines its ultra-high-performance drive unit configuration with powerful Bowers & Wilkins-developed DSP (Digital Signal Processing) to produce superb, 24-bit high-resolution sound quality from top streaming services via wireless or cable connections.
Six high-performance microphones collaborate to produce the greatest results: two measure the output of each drive unit, two respond to outside noise, and two give exceptional speech quality with better noise suppression.
As with the Px7 S2, the system’s performance has been enhanced by placing the two external microphones closer together, modifying the angling of each microphone to increase voice capture, and repositioning the second mic to lessen wind noise interference.
The Music App will allow Px8 users to stream music directly from their mobile device to their headphones when it launches, with Deezer, Qobuz, and TIDAL all supported. The same capability will be available to Px7 S2 owners on the day Px8 is released. Customers of Bowers & Wilkins may now simply switch between listening at home – for example, via a Zeppelin or a pair of Formation Duo stereo speakers – and listening on the go with a set of Px8 or Px7 S2 headphones, as just one illustration of the benefits of this game-changing technology.
With a battery life of 30 hours, Px8 can play all day – and more – on a single charge, while a 15-minute quick charge can provide up to seven hours of additional listening time, so you’ll never be without your favourite music for long.
