Bose-beating noise-cancelling headphones

from The Guardian

Very few headphones manage to combine truly effective noise cancellation with exquisite sound, but that’s what we have here. The PX7 are some of the best-sounding headphones I’ve had the pleasure to listen to in a long time. They’re also comfortable, stay put on your head, last a long time...More

Very few headphones manage to combine truly effective noise cancellation with exquisite sound, but that’s what we have here. The PX7 are some of the best-sounding headphones I’ve had the pleasure to listen to in a long time. They’re also comfortable, stay put on your head, last a long time between charges and are future-proofed thanks to support for the very latest Bluetooth standards, codecs and both USB-C audio and a traditional 3.5mm analogue headphones cable. However you want to connect the PX7 to your devices they have you covered.

Leading ANC audio performance with aptX Adaptive for good measure

from Pocket-lint

Bowers & Wilkins does it again - producing a superb pair of wireless ANC headphones that do not compromise on audio performance. They are also lighter and more comfortable than the company's previous flagship model. Excellent stuff all round.

Close to being the total package

With the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 has yet again produce a worthy headphone, with great sound and some excellent features. The ANC is good, if not as strong as other headphones and the weight may be troublesome for some, but nevertheless these are one of, if not the, finest-sounding wireless headphones at their price point.

If you’re looking for class-leading wireless, noise-canceling headphones and you're not put off by a premium price tag, Bowers & Wilkins’ latest flagship pair are well worth considering. The cheaper Sony WH-1000XM3 rivals may be slightly better value, but with best-in-class sound quality and design, not to mention very decent ANC and battery life, the PX7s are stellar acts indeed.

The PX7 continue the company’s tradition of crafting gorgeous and great-sounding headphones. Unfortunately, they also continue the tradition of very high prices. Though a worthy follow-up to the PX in terms of battery life, the lack of voice assistant access means these fancy cans have actually fallen further behind when compared to the best from Sony, Bose, and others.

Absolutely wonderful acoustic performance, solid adaptive noise cancellation

At the end of the day, musical tastes are subjective, however, we found the PX7s to be a joy to listen to and filled with dynamism, detail, impact and warmth. The 30-hour battery life, along with clever Wear Detection feature (also on Sennheiser Momentum 3 and PXC 550 II) are excellent ‘quality of life’ inclusions. Are they the king of the ANC/Bluetooth headphones? They’re certainly deserving, however, which crown depends on your musical tastes and the features you value the most.

Best noise-canceling headphones for big, big sound

The Bowers & Wilkins PX7s are excellent noise-canceling headphones that prioritize sound quality over everything else, with maybe the company’s signature industrial design coming a close second. They might not be as travel-friendly as some of the more popular cans by Sony and Bose, but if you’re comfortable with the $400 price tag, these are some of our favorite noise-canceling headphones you can buy right now.

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

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…
