Bowers & Wilkins has announced the release of four new models in its ever-expanding wireless headphone lineup, including a new flagship wireless over-ear NC model, the PX7 Wireless, which serves as a replacement for the PX Wireless we reviewed back in 2018. The new $399.99 PX7 Wireless features woven carbon fiber composite arms an upgraded battery life of 30 hours, with additional five-hour boosts available from a 15-minute quick-charge.
The company has also added the new PX5 Wireless on-ear model with active noise-cancellation, as well as two wireless in-ears--one with active NC; one without. For more details on all four new models, read on for the full press release below:
Wireless Headphones can create your own slice of personal, immersed space - whether it's while you travel, work or play. Yet most headphones either lack the technology knowhow to enable a true "soundstage" listening experience or prioritize being a fashion accessory over sound quality. Now, Bowers & Wilkins' world-renowned audio engineers unveil their newest line of 2019 headphones, designed from the ground up with the same exacting acoustic standards as our legendary 50-year speakers heritage - in a range of designs to fit your listening needs.
Each pair starts with custom-designed drivers developed specifically for each headphone wearing style, from the 43mm drivers in the top-of-the line Over-Ear PX7, to the exclusive dual hybrid drivers in the sporty In-Ear PI3. "This unique application of our proprietary driver technology, when coupled with the new and cutting edge Qualcomm aptX Adaptive audio codec, creates the most realistic, high-fidelity soundstage of any headphone on the market, reproducing sound just as it was created in the studio," says Tim Johnston, SVP & GM of Headphone Business Unit. "We've worked extremely hard to create a line of headphones that deliver music the way the artists intended it to be heard." Bowers & Wilkins headphones will be the first commercially available aptX Adaptive sync devices.
Based on the ultra-low power Qualcomm QCC5100 Series Bluetooth Audio SoCs with the all new aptX Adaptive audio technology experience robust, low-latency, high resolution wireless technology at 24/48 streaming quality. The headphones also include ANC that runs at 16 times the sampling rate to ensure the best performance with no degradation to the audio quality.
Here is the new line:
