Product Expert headphones

Immerse yourself in music with the Bowers & Wilkins PX headphones. Thanks to the adjustable noise-canceling function, ambient sounds such as loud phone conversations on the train or the noise of an airplane engine won't bother you. Install the smartphone app in order to get access to the adaptive noise-canceling function. This function detects whether you're traveling, walking, or waiting and adjusts the strength of the noise canceling accordingly. The PX comes with a Bluetooth aptX profile. This means you can stream your music in high quality. Connect the headphones via Bluetooth to your phone or tablet. The battery of the headphones lasts for 22 hours. Use the buttons on the ear cup to control the music or answer an incoming call.

Note: please make sure to always download the latest software update of the app to fix problems and ensure you're getting the most out of the headphones.

"B&W quality throughout, usual high standard in audio and qua"
In the color: Grijs

By David J Cox on 24 September 2019

Easy set up on first pairing. 2nd device took a little working out how to get in pairing mode but after that straight forward. Delighted that B&W decided to go with hard carry case as this was one issue I had on previous purchases. I would recommend these headphones to anyone. I previously owned a set of Bose noise cancelling headphones, which in all honesty were also very good servants on many long hauls. Still to test for comfort on 12hr flight .... next week.
