Back in black B&W PX7 Carbon Edition
Wednesday, September 16, 2020

Bowers & Wilkins is marking the 10th anniversary of its headphones with the launch of the PX7 Carbon Edition (£349.99). This wireless headphone features a carbon black finish with diamond-cut detailing on each ear cup, creating an even more premium look that also evokes the heritage of Bowers & Wilkins headphones. 

The PX7 Carbon Edition shares the same specification as the existing PX7 models. First and foremost, it delivers True Sound, offering maximum resolution while maintaining complete neutrality and tonal balance. The aim is to recreate your favourite music exactly as the artist intended – with or without noise-cancelling selected. It includes 43.6mm drivers, designed, developed and tuned by the engineering team responsible for the 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers. The PX7 Carbon Edition also supports the latest wireless codecs including the recently launched Bluetooth aptX Adaptive technology, allowing the transfer of genuine high-resolution music wirelessly at 24-bit/48kHz streaming quality. 

Much engineering effort was also spent on the design of the headband and earcup-supporting arms used in the PX7 Carbon Edition’s construction; as with all PX7s, these are made from a carbon-fibre-reinforced polymer for an optimal combination of lightness and stiffness. Memory foam ear pads also ensure that the headset starts with market-leading passive noise isolation. Adaptive noise cancellation is capable of intelligently sensing the background environment and automatically selecting the appropriate type and level of noise cancellation. Users can also use the companion app to select an Ambient-Pass-Through feature that allows certain external sounds to be heard without removing the headset. 

It features proximity sensors built into both ear cups, so your music is automatically paused when either ear cup is lifted and automatically resumes when placed back on your ear. At the same time, PX7 Carbon Edition also offers push-button access to Voice Assistant Support via either Siri or Google Assistant depending on the type of phone used. It claims a battery life of up to 30 hours from a single charge (with ANC activated) backed by a 15min quick-charge facility that will enable five more hours of use. The PX7 Carbon Edition will be available in October.
