    Bowers & Wilkins PX Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones, Best-in-class Sound, Soft Gold

    • When I got the headphones, I was confused as to why music sounded so distant and faint through them
    • Great earphones with superb sound and details, but since that's not the only criteria for a good product, these things prevent this awesome product from getting a 5-stars rating (yes, I knew about the first one before purchasing):1
    • My criteria was first and formost sound (had to be flat enough to be useful as a tool and detailed enough that I enjoyed listening to them), then comfort (these did take a minute to break
    • There are many reviews you will find that can get into the intimate details of sound quality
    • n’t want to disturb or be disturbed by anyone around you

    Bowers & Wilkins PX Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones, Best-in-class Sound, Soft Gold

    • Note that I have the well regarded Sony 1000x wireless ANC headphones sitting right here to compare with the PX
    • If you need only the best ANC, you should probably look elsewhere
    • Yes the ANC is amazing , but it is almost like you don’t need it
    • When I got the headphones, I was confused as to why music sounded so distant and faint through them
    • 29 hours with Bluetooth and ANC disabled

    Bowers & Wilkins PX Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones, Best-in-class Sound, Soft Gold

    • They are possibly the BEST sounding wireless headphones on the market (with ANC off)
    • Overall the sound is very impressive and in my opinion is the best sounding wireless headphone available in 2018.If you’re like me and you want a minimalistic wireless headphone without compromising on compressed audio, then this is absolutely the headphone for you
    • Note that I have the well regarded Sony 1000x wireless ANC headphones sitting right here to compare with the PX
    • Pros:Best sounding wireless headphones out there - period
    • Bear in mind that there are being called the best sounding wireless headphones you can buy at the moment so my expectations where high

    Bowers & Wilkins PX Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones, Best-in-class Sound, Soft Gold

    • Sony and Bose rivalling levels of noise cancellation would be welcomed
    • The top three (Bose, Sony, and B&W) are so close to each
    • I don’t want to suggest it was boring, just not as good as the 550’s or PX’s
    • Noise cancelling, though excellent and gets the job done, is not as good as Bose or Sony
    • My original 1000X's right arm developed a crack and eventually snapped right off and despite claims online that Sony has addressed the issue with a different type of plastic on the 1000XM2's, the plastic doesn't seem sturdy enough or reinforced enough to support the loads at the joints where the cracking happens (just compare the hinge joints and arms of the Bose Quiet Comfort II's to see what "confidence-inspiring" plastic looks and feels

    Bowers & Wilkins PX Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones, Best-in-class Sound, Soft Gold

    • The only problem I have is that occasionally I have connectivity issues, where the headphones will drop the song
    • I also have a ton of connectivity issues with my PC (Dell Precision 7520)
    • Heavy headphones and the sound just wasn't what I was looking for--it just wasn't "expansive like the B&O beoplay headphones; although the noise cancelling feature is better than the B&Os, so there's that to consider; however, the sound quality in noise cancelling mode isn't as good as the B&O Beoplays, so that's an issue too.
    • I don’t want to suggest it was boring, just not as good as the 550’s or PX’s
    • Was skeptical of the bluetooth connectivity issues that a read from other reviews, so hesitated and decided finally to take the plunge

    Bowers & Wilkins PX Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones, Best-in-class Sound, Soft Gold

    • Both paired up perfectly and both worked exactly as they should have.
    • I've owned the P5 and P7 as well as the B&O H8 and H9 as well as some Bose cans
    • Like the P7 Wireless, the ear pads give you good isolation, even with NC turned off
    • The very firm ear pads are so uncomfortable on my skull.

    Bowers & Wilkins PX Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones, Best-in-class Sound, Soft Gold

    • The B&O H9 does have noise cancelling, but the volume doesn't get very loud, and the noise cancelling is not very good.... in quiet environments, where you don't need noise cancelling or very loud volumes, its a great pair of headphones... but it stays at home most of the time.
    • Heavy headphones and the sound just wasn't what I was looking for--it just wasn't "expansive like the B&O beoplay headphones; although the noise cancelling feature is better than the B&Os, so there's that to consider; however, the sound quality in noise cancelling mode isn't as good as the B&O Beoplays, so that's an issue too.
    • These are made for use in various situations, in noisy environments, offices etc
    • As I type this, I'm sitting in a loud environment with TV's, music, lots of people talking but with ANC and my music playing at about 60% volume, I can't hear anything outside my headphones.
    • These have been engineered for on the go listening, so Bowers & Wilkins acknowledges that people will be using these in loud environments hence the addition of ANC
