New Color, Same Premium Sound

Bowers & Wilkins today introduced the PX7 Carbon Edition wireless over-ear noise-cancelling headphones to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of the company’s first entry into the headphone market with the P5 wireless headphones.

The PX7 headphone debuted last year in silver and space gray for $399 and are the company’s flagship model. Today’s launch introduces a new color option in a high-quality carbon black finish with diamond-cut detailing on each ear cup, creating an even more premium look that also evokes the illustrious heritage of Bowers & Wilkins headphones over the years. Otherwise all PX7 models feature the same features, drivers, specifications, and sound quality along with adaptive noise-cancelling technology.

Bowers & Wilkins says PX7 Carbon Edition deliver “True Sound”, offering maximum resolution while maintaining complete neutrality and tonal balance. Further adding, they aim to recreate your favorite music exactly as the artist intended – whether with or without noise-cancelling selected. The PX7 Carbon Edition’s immersive soundstage is the result of a specification that includes bespoke 43.6mm drivers, specially designed, developed and tuned by the world-renowned Bowers & Wilkins engineering team responsible for the legendary 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers.

To maintain sound quality, the PX7 Carbon Edition also supports the latest wireless codecs including the recently launched Bluetooth aptX Adaptive technology, allowing the transfer of genuine high-resolution music wirelessly at 24-bit/48kHz streaming quality.

Much engineering effort was also spent on the design of the headband and earcup-supporting arms used in the PX7 Carbon Edition’s construction; as with all PX7s, these are made from a carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer for an optimal combination of lightness and stiffness. Memory foam ear pads also ensure that the headset starts with market-leading passive noise isolation. As for active noise cancellation, PX7 Carbon Edition’s adaptive technology is capable of intelligently sensing the background environment and automatically selecting the appropriate type and level of noise cancellation. Users can also use the companion App to select an Ambient Pass-Through feature that allows certain external sounds to be heard without removing the headset.

The PX7 Carbon Edition features intuitive proximity sensors built into both ear cups, so your music is automatically paused when either ear cup is lifted and automatically resumes when placed back on your ear. Plus push-button access enables Voice Assistant Support via either Siri or Google Assistant depending on the type of phone used.

Lastly, the PX7 Carbon Edition offers long battery life of up to 30 hours from a single charge (with noise cancelling activated). With its included USB-C style charging cable a 15-minute quick-charge enables five more hours of use. Also, included in the box is a 3.5mm cable for wired listening and a storage case for travel.
