Features

With Bowers & Wilkins PX specs the model represents a decent level of Hi-Fi headphones. Its frequency response of 10Hz-20KHz should provide a good sound quality at all ranges. The 111 dB sensitivity is great for quality sound at high volumes. Its impedance of 22 Ohm makes it sound nice with mobile devices.

The battery life is incredible. It states 20 hours with and 50 without noise cancelling.

Bowers & Wilkins PX review

Sound

The clarity of details of Bowers & Wilkins PX impresses. It sounds very airy with a spacious soundstage. One con in the sound quality is that it is affected by the noise cancelling function. It may sound more muddy with the ANC switched on. The bass seems stronger than mids and highs and may sound not so satisfying for neutral listeners.

Noise cancelling

Here Bowers & Wilkins PX are great. They are able to switch the outer world in your ears and make you enjoy your music. I like that I may adjust the level of ANC to perceive some sounds around. That function makes this pair good for traveling and office use.

Connectivity

The connection of these headphones is supported by a detachable cable and 4.2 Bluetooth for wireless option. They have aptX and aptX HD support.

Comfort and design

The comfort of Bowers & Wilkins PX makes them good for activities as they fit tight and stable. It makes them also not the best choice for long sessions. The ear cups and headband are well padded and feel soft. The headphones are not heavy and still not the lightest with 335 g/11.8 oz. The adjustable headband is a plus but the cups are completely unfoldable. They are great for sports, however, the closed over ear cups can make ears sweat.
