Bowers & Wilkins PX7 Carbon Edition arrive in October to celebrate ten years making headphones
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.
