No-nonsense noise cancellers with excellent sound

from Stuff

The PX7s improve on B&W’s maiden noise-cancelling effort in every way. The redesign places greater emphasis on comfort and the headphones are all the better for it, while noise cancellation is as effective as you’ll find. Throw in the inclusion of aptX Adaptive and you’ve got quite a pa...More

The PX7s improve on B&W’s maiden noise-cancelling effort in every way. The redesign places greater emphasis on comfort and the headphones are all the better for it, while noise cancellation is as effective as you’ll find. Throw in the inclusion of aptX Adaptive and you’ve got quite a package. Oh, and they sound pretty flipping good too. Other brands might offer a few more features, but if you’re looking to buy (or hoping to receive) some new headphones this Christmas, the PX7s are a superb choice.

A fine pair of headphones with amazing noise cancelling

from Expert Reviews

It won’t be small differences in sound quality or the subtleties of one Bluetooth codec versus another that will make the difference for most people, it’s the price. And, on that front, the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 simply can’t compete with its rivals. This might be a slightly unfair comme...More

It won’t be small differences in sound quality or the subtleties of one Bluetooth codec versus another that will make the difference for most people, it’s the price. And, on that front, the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 simply can’t compete with its rivals. This might be a slightly unfair comment to make. After all, the PX7 are new and they’re on a par with the best when it comes to noise cancelling – and a notch ahead for design as well. However, that the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 don’t deliver enough of a step up in quality to justify the premium.

The first generation Bowers & Wilkins PX was a great success, creating a flame that burned brightly in the already busy noise-cancelling market. The new PX7 looks to build on this thanks to excellent sound, superlative build, sensible features and great styling. Those looking for a flagship luxury noise-cancelling headphone design – but who don’t want the Bose that everyone else seems to have – now have an excellent alternative to consider. There’s a sense that Bowers & Wilkins is now finally finding its feet in the high end wireless headphone market so to speak – and things may never be quite the same again…

Stylish and high quality over-ears with noise cancelling

from Headphonecheck.com

As with its on-ear counterpart, I would give a clear letter of recommendation to the PX7. Where the PX7 loses out for me is the price, since it does not justify the extra 100 EUR on top of the cost of the on-ear model. The competition for the PX5 comes from in-house. But if you want an ear–encl...More

As with its on-ear counterpart, I would give a clear letter of recommendation to the PX7. Where the PX7 loses out for me is the price, since it does not justify the extra 100 EUR on top of the cost of the on-ear model. The competition for the PX5 comes from in-house. But if you want an ear–enclosing version of the current Bowers & Wilkins headphones, you can’t go wrong with the PX7.

Sleek style, good ANC feature

from RTINGS

Passable for mixed usage. These high-end headphones have a decent ANC feature that'll be useful for commuting or at the office, but that’s about it. Their sound profile won’t suit more critical listeners who are looking for a neutral sound and they also won’t be suited for sports due to the...More

Passable for mixed usage. These high-end headphones have a decent ANC feature that'll be useful for commuting or at the office, but that’s about it. Their sound profile won’t suit more critical listeners who are looking for a neutral sound and they also won’t be suited for sports due to their design. Watching TV and gaming with the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 might be a hassle due to their latency, although they're compatible with lower-latency codecs.

What Hi-Fi

Hugely impressive noise-cancelling headphones

All a pair of headphones can do is sound, look and feel great – and the B&W PX7s tick all three boxes. In our initial hands-on review, we predicted that the PX7s would be up there with the very best noise-cancelling headphones, and that’s where they sit.

An excellent set of intuitive, noise cancelling headphones

from TrustedReviews

At first glance, Bowers & Wilkins' PX7 are an excellent set of intuitive, noise cancelling headphones. It'll be interesting to hear how well the adaptive ANC works in different environments once we get our hands on a review sample.

Class-leading wireless connectivity

from TechRadar

With fantastic audio fidelity, a comfortable fit, and class-leading aptX Adaptive technology, the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones could give the likes of Sony and Bose a run for their money. However, they're pretty expensive and their noise cancelation could be stronger.

First ANC over-ears with aptX Adaptive Bluetooth

from Pocket-lint

Audio quality seems up there with the best, while the carbon fibre arms remove around half the weight. Hopefully, the ANC tech will be as effective as removing external hubbub, without impacting on the musicality.
