Bowers & Wilkins, the British brand of premium sound products, has launched Px8 wireless headphones with active noise cancellation that represent a further step in the standard of excellence in sound, quality and high-end finishes.
Inspired by the Carbon Dome loudspeakers used in the 700 Series loudspeakers, the Px8’s new Carbon drivers provide a combination of ultra-fast response speed and exceptionally low distortion throughout its operating frequency range. The result is resolution, detail and tonal accuracy that exceed the high bar of excellence already set by the Px7 S2, ensuring even more natural and captivating sonic performance that brings the user closer than ever to the True Sound of performance. of the artist.
More immersive and accurate soundstage
The Px8’s Carbon Cone drivers are intentionally angled inside the ear cups to ensure a consistent distance from the user’s ear from any point on the surface of each driver, thus reproducing a more immersive and accurate soundstage. The result is the best sound quality ever delivered by a Bowers & Wilkins wireless headphone.
The Px8 have the same wireless platform used in the Px7 S2 with active noise cancellation, which on the other hand are among the most musical headband headphones on the market. In the Px8, this feature is taken to even higher levels of resolution, micro-detail analysis capacity and spaciousness.
A new premium design
The Px8 design is available in two finishes, black leather and leather, and now includes brackets with a die-cast aluminum frame that references the distinctive Bowers & Wilkins design language. Features a brilliant diamond-cut outline on each elliptical back plate. The earcups, memory foam ear cushions, and headband are trimmed in nappa leather for a premium look.
Px8 uses Qualcomm’s aptXTM Adaptive wireless technology that ensures the best sound quality from compatible phones, tablets and computers. It also supports USB-C and 3.5mm analog cable connections, included in the product case.
It combines its ultra-high-performance drive configuration with the powerful DSP (Digital Signal Processing) developed by Bowers & Wilkins to deliver outstanding 24-bit Hi-Res sound quality from leading streaming services.
Musicality with six high-performance microphones
The Px8 uses the same patented Bowers & Wilkins optimized noise cancellation technology as the Px7 S2 to effectively remove unwanted noise without damaging musicality in the process. Six high-performance microphones work together to deliver the best results: two measure the output of each drive unit, two react to ambient noise from the outside world, and two provide outstanding voice clarity with enhanced noise cancellation. System performance is improved by moving the two external microphones closer together, adjusting the angle of each microphone to improve voice pickup, and repositioning the second microphone to reduce wind noise interference.

The new Px8 allows Bowers & Wilkins Music App users to choose directly from their mobile device, supports detailed sound adjustment via an equalizer, and allows users to set their preferred noise cancellation mode, all while monitoring levels. headphone charging. Physical controls are also included on each earbud that can be used to launch the phone’s voice assistant.

It perfectly represents everything that identifies us as a brand, with an exceptional sound quality that lives up to our promise of True Sound, as well as an unmatched design and finish”.
