Bowers and Wilkins PX8 review
The new Bowers and Wilkins PX8 headphone was released, when it wasn't too long ago that Bowers and Wilkins announced the PX7 S2 , and now Bowers and Wilkins have a new item to pursue.

Here we're going to talk about a modern, high-quality Bluetooth headset that aims to improve on everything that makes B&Ws worthwhile.

With these announced improvements comes their most expensive headphones yet, priced at $699.

Bowers and Wilkins PX8 headphone design

If I put the PX7 S2 and PX8 side by side, I wouldn't see much difference between the two. This is only when it comes to design. Aesthetically, the PX8 has slight differences that give it a more premium look.

There's a matte finish on both earbuds that are supported by die-cast aluminum arms that form a starburst structure. The silver outline is a nice touch.

Nappa leather makes up the headband and ear pads, providing good lightness and comfort similar to the PX7 S2. I was able to wear the PX8 for many hours without feeling too hot.

Inside the PX8 is a 40mm dynamic driver made of angled carbon cones. This makeup is designed to minimize distortion for refined clarity.

The PX8 also has a drive system that has new magnets and a voice coil to be even more precise. You also have a full array of microphones that make for clear phone calls.

Four microphones have been given to powering the PX8's noise-canceling capabilities, and this results in strong isolation. It equals Momentum 4 From Sennheiser and up a little to WH-1000XM5 From Sony.

I liked that the eco mode was set to the PX8's quick action to quickly switch between noise cancellation to pure space awareness.

You can toggle this quick action to activate voice assistance with the Bowers and Wilkins companion app. Also in this app there is a limited equalizer with bass sliders.

Battery life

You'll be able to get about 30 hours of gameplay out of the PX8, the same as Focal Bathys. A 15-minute charge should be able to give you seven hours of playback if you're looking for a quick charge.

Bluetooth

The PX8 pairs without a hitch, with a fast and uninterrupted connection after hours of listening. It supports a variety of codecs, such as SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX HD, and aptx Adaptive.

Reviews of Bowers and Wilkins PX8

The latest ANC headphone from Bowers and Wilkins is a worthy successor to the PX7. Many parts of its design have been greatly improved, but you'll pay more.

With high quality Bluetooth technology, the speaker can be a great companion if you are willing to buy. The sound signature has some great qualities, especially the bass, highs, and acoustic stage.

While it's better than the PX7, I'm not sure if that's the audio sound a pair of headphones at this price usually goes for.
