Bowers & Wilkins Px8 vs Focal Bathys Wireless Headphones: Video Showdown

We finally managed to get the Bowers & Wilkins Px8 and Focal Bathys in the same room for listening comparisons. We break it all down in our video comparison.

The Bowers & Wilkins Px8 Wireless Noise-cancelling Headphones arrived too late for inclusion in our 2022 Best Wireless ANC Headphone Guide, but we have finally had the opportunity to review them which you can read here.

Sr. Headphone Editor, William Jennings, was so impressed by their performance that we decided to compare them to the best wireless headphone of 2022.

Can they steal the crown from the Focal Bathys which we awarded best high-end luxury wireless ANC headphones of 2022?

    Gentlemen, my thanks to both of you for the informative review on the Px8 and how it fares against the Bathys. It is nice to know that they are “toss-up” close. I would buy the Bathys over the Px8 based on the former’s looks and I have a set of Px7 S2 heading my way.

    If for whatever reason the B&W do not suffice then back the go and I will save up another $400 for the Bathys. Those ‘phones are simply gorgeous. If only the Px8 Bond…James Bond Edition visually stood out a bit more. The first song I will listen to via my B&Ws shall be the theme from “Same Time Next Year” as done by Johnny Mathis and the hauntingly beautiful Jane Olivor. Mathis has long been one of my favorite vocalist, very near to Sinatra in spite of the differences in the styles.

    And Jane Olivor? Hammanah…Hammanah…Hammanah…BANG! ZOOM! Simply, stunningly, classically beautiful And both Mathis and Olivor have voices to match their looks.

    I am ramblin’ again. Thank you both so very much. I am, of course, seriously sincere as I do appreciate your thoughts on equipment and music, even when I cannot afford some thing.

    A man’s reach should exceed his wallet or what are raisons d’être for?

    Please pardon any and all errors, thank you.
