What may I tell having an opportunity to compare the headphones Bose 700 vs Bowers & Wilkins PX? Both are over ear, closed back headphones and wireless and wired wearing mode.
Bowers & Wilkins PX is represented with impedance of 22 Ohm, 10Hz-20KHz frequency response, and total harmonic distortion of 0.3% that is quite impressive for decent sound reproduction, that I will test further. Their sensitivity is 111 dB. These features of Bose 700 are not specified. Though, the PX model may show off a longer battery life, 22 hours (or 50 without active noise cancelling) vs 20 hours of Bose 700. Having a wired mode both have a battery free listening mode. I find the battery level indicator also a useful option.
What I find really great is the adjustable level of noise canceling. It is really useful to block the outside noise to the level you need at the moment.
The music of Bose 700 sounds clean and balanced and no frequency really stands out so you get an accurate representation of your music. The bass may seem tighter at higher volumes. I am impressed with the astonishing amount of details provided by Bowers & Wilkins PX plus an incredibly wide soundstage. But the sound perception may change a bit on different levels of noise canceling.
The Bowers & Wilkins PX is heavier vs Bose 700 being 335 g vs 255 g. Both are comfy with their adjustable headband but are completely unfoldable that makes them volumetric to carry with. They are not bulky to use in running or sports but closed over ear design can make you sweat. The fit of Bose is also unstable enough for active moves though the PX model fits tighter.
The Bowers & Wilkins PX is better headphones in this comparison. Check Bowers & Wilkins PX price
