Bowers & Wilkins has marked the 10th anniversary of making headphones with the launch of its new special edition PX7 Carbon Edition. As the name suggests, the headphones use a carbon fiber composite in the design that not only makes them look sleeker, but also helps them weigh less for added comfort.

Bowers & Wilkins is a brand well-known by audio enthusiasts but it may come as a surprise that it has been making headphones for only the past decade. To celebrate the occasion, the company has launched the PX7 Carbon Edition headphones which adds a black finish to emphasise the carbon fiber composite already used in the arms of the regular PX7 range. It also incorporates a diamond-cut finish on each ear cup that references a design feature appearing on its original P5 headphones from ten years ago.

The PX7 Carbon Edition features a pair of 46.3 mm drivers designed by the same engineers behind the company’s famous B&W 800 Diamond loudspeakers found in Abbey Road Studios. They also feature adaptive noise cancelling that responds to a listener’s environment. They can last up to 30 hours on a charge while a 15-minute quick charge delivers an additional five hours of listening time. Lift an ear cup to hear what’s going on around you and the music will automatically stop playing.

The Bowers & Wilkins PX7 Carbon Edition headphones will ship globally in October for US$400, which is the same price as the regular Space Gray and Silver models.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
