Bowers & Wilkins Px8 Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones Deliver a Superb, Immersive Listening Experience, No Matter Where You Are
If you crave fantastic sound on the go, the Bowers & Wilkins Px8 Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones offer a truly immersive listening experience—almost anywhere, anytime. A flagship model that offers reference-level sound, Px8 delivers a magic combination of audiophile-quality performance and fun, wireless, roam-wherever-you-like convenience. You get spectacular sound with no wires, no hassles, and no comprises.
Bowers & Wilkins audio engineers designed Px8 to excel in every area. These stellar headphones are the ultimate merger of exceptional sound quality, premium materials, intelligent technology, and intuitive, easy-to-use features.
Px8 is built around a 24-bit wireless platform optimized for high-resolution music streaming. The meticulously angled, 40mm drive units are engineered for next-level audio: Constructed with innovative carbon cones, Px8 conveys musical nuances and micro-details that other headphones simply miss. In short, Px8 presents a stunning level of focus, immersion, and realism for wireless headphones.
Px8 uses a carefully engineered array of six microphones to offer remarkable noise cancellation that shuts out unwanted intrusions—without hindering the dynamics and energy of the playback. Careful positioning and angling of those microphones ensures crystal-clear phone clarity, too.
Brilliant engineering ensures that the six microphones all work together to deliver amazing sound: Two mics measure the output of each drive unit, two "listen" to ambient noise from the outside world, and two provide outstanding voice performance with enhanced noise suppression.
When Px8 headphones are charged up, they're ready to rock all day long—and longer. There's no need to worry about these headphones giving up on you at a crucial moment: Px8 offers up to 30 hours of wireless listening.
Great sound deserves great aesthetics, too. The Px8 is painstakingly crafted for comfort and style. The cast aluminum arms are extremely light yet stiff for superior durability. The sumptuous Nappa leather combines with finely crafted memory foam earpads to provide easy, all-day comfort. Diamond-cut bright metal detailing adds elegance to the overall design. The eye-catching result is that the Px8 headphones look just as great as they sound.
With Px8, class-leading noise cancellation and cutting-edge advances in audio technology allow you to experience your favorite music as it was meant to be heard. Slip on a pair of these headphones and you can easily imagine being on a concert stage or in the recording studio with your favorite band—even if you happen to be standing in a noisy environment.
Furthermore, the intuitive, simple-to-use Bowers & Wilkins Music App puts you in full control. You can use it to pair your headphones to your preferred devices, set the sound EQ to your preferences, and adjust the noise-cancelling transparency mode to let in more or less of the outside world. Plus, you can monitor your charge levels. Additionally, you can launch your phone's voice assistant at the touch of a button. If you're phone isn't nearby, you can use physical controls on each earcup to ensure the sound is exactly the way you want it.
You can audition the Px8 headphones with the confidence and peace of mind that come with the 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.
"Anyone familiar with recent efforts from Bowers & Wilkins won't be surprised with what the Px8 deliver in sound quality, but they will still be impressed. There is a level of clarity and insight here that we haven't heard bettered at this level.... Overall, the Bowers & Wilkins Px8 are hugely capable performers that justify their price with a combination of build and sound quality that cheaper alternatives just can't match."
—What Hi-Fi?, five-star review
High-Resolution Sound on the Go
Px8 uses aptX Adaptive wireless technology to automatically optimize wireless music transmission from suitable phones, tablets, and computers. Coupled to powerful Bowers & Wilkins-developed DSP (Digital Signal Processing), the result is outstanding 24-bit high-resolution sound quality from suitable streaming services. You can connect to your laptop via USB, and you'll enjoy the same high-res quality.
Superior Carbon Cones
Px8 combines its high-resolution 24-bit DSP "brain" with all-new 40mm carbon cones that deliver outstanding resolution. By reducing distortion and improving high-frequency detail, the carbon cone captures intricate nuances in your music. The stiffer carbon-fiber cone demonstrably reduces distortion, compared to a standard headphone drive unit, resulting in lower noise on the cone and massively improved clarity. Coupled to a fully optimized drive unit "motor system"—with revised magnet, voice coil, and surround—the result is unparalleled accuracy from a headphone drive unit.
