The Bowers & Wilkins’ PX is by far the best wireless headphones reviewed by PANACHE Magazine. From the moment you receive the box, you fall in love with the clean modern design. This beautifully crafted work of art is every audiophile’s dream. This is the first headphone whose fit is perfect- not too slack nor too tight with over the ear cups that nestle in just right. Unlike other brands, even after hours of playing, there is no pain or tightness from the cushioned headband forcing you to retreat from your solace. For hours of listening the PX is your trusted companion that stays with you through it all. Congratulations to Bowers & Wilkins on the level of thought and love that went into the sleek design of the PX- the decades of experience truly shine through.
The PX and its app which you can download from the Apple Store or Google Play comes with intelligent controls that respond naturally to your behaviour- this listening experience is totally intuitive. Imagine pausing your music with just a lift of an ear up; or needing to go to another room and experiencing zero interruptions in your listening experience (the Bluetooth is great). This headphone is smart- just remember that when the music resumes it will be at the volume level you left the settings in (so don’t give yourself a surprise blast by listening to high volumes).
The innovative noise cancellation the PX presents is unmatched, with a simple tap on the app you filter out distractions and become more in tune with the music. The level of refinement in blocking out environment sounds without distorting your listening experience is groundbreaking. There are three environment filters: Flight, City and Office and you can choose the isolation that best suits your needs at the time. So from bustling traffic to office gossip, you can set your customization to limit the distractions.
The soundstage is phenomenal and it delivers a clear sound that makes you feel like you are in the studio. It doesn’t matter what you stream reggae, dancehall, pop, rock or hip-hop; from Bob Marley to Beethoven- the PX delivers the best audio quality with good mids and highs and a deep base. For best sound, do keep the wireless adaptive noise cancellation off and the experience is still excellent given its strong isolation.
The “no fuss” buttons for the PX which control volume up and down, next and back are located on the right side and great to use. Bob Marley said, “When the music hits, you feel no pain,” the PX delivers sound as it should be heard. Headphones are always a personal choice whether it’s a Bose, Sennheiser or Sony; however, hands down the PX is the best Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones of 2017. At the end of the day, your investment in a pair of headphones boils down to sound and the Bowers & Wilkins’ PX is worth every penny.
