Heads up

Hot on the heels of launching its Px7 S2 headphones that we recently tested, Bowers & Wilkins has announced its new flagship wireless headphones in the shape of the PX8.

Sporting upgraded diecast aluminium arms and outer shells, their memory foam ear cups and headband come clad in nappa leather. Internally their hardware is also a step up from the Px7 S2 model, thanks to upgraded 40mm carbon drive units, angled within each cup for optimum, even sound delivery.

Connectivity comes courtesy Qualcomm’s aptXTM Adaptive wireless tech, with USB-C and 3.5mm analogue cable inputs, aided by B&W’s own digital signal processing offering 24-bit resolution from a range of streaming services including Deezer, Qobuz and Tidal.

Noise cancelling settings are also on offer via B&W’s Music app, which is set for a range of upgrades to further integrate third party music streaming.

Priced at £599 and available in black or tan finish, find out more at Bowers&Wilkins.com.
