PX headphones are high performance over-ear units that provide the highest quality personal audio experience combined with the convenience of wireless operation and the serenity of noise management.
The PX headphones can be used to play music streamed wirelessly from your mobile phone, tablet or computer via Bluetooth, or conventionally connected by a jack cable to a suitable headphone output. PX headphones can also play audio via a USB connection from a computer, and can be used for wireless telephony.
PX headphone Real World Listening features include Environment Filter and Voice Pass-through features. Environment Filter noise-management is optional and can be simply enabled or disabled via a button on the headphones. The Voice Pass-through feature enables external sounds, such as conversation or safety announcements, to be heard clearly without any need to remove the headphones. Environment Filter and Voice Pass-through are enabled via the PX Headphone iOS and Android app available for free download. The app also enables headphone characteristics to be adjusted.
PX headphones incorporate a rechargeable battery pack. When fully charged, and depending on the degree of Bluetooth, Environment Filter and Voice Pass-through use, the battery pack can provide up to 22 hours use at average volume levels.
Expertreviews says –
“The PX are B&W’s latest addition to its headphone family. They’re wireless, naturally, and support all the standard Bluetooth audio codecs including SBC, Apple’s AAC, and the very latest AptX HD standard, which promises hi-def audio quality without the wires. And yes, they’re also equipped with an in-built microphone for headset duties. Active noise cancellation is the big news here, though (in fact these are Bowers & Wilkins’ first ever ANC headphones) and as the internal 850mAh lithium polymer battery promises 22 hours of playtime, you should be able to remain in a little bubble of zen-like calm for the longest of flights.”
