The first thing to think about when choosing headphones is how they will be used. Is the primary purpose of these headphones to help you withdraw into your own world? Are you buying them as a day-to-day travel companion, or are you a frequent flyer who wants to avoid having a conversation with the random person sitting in the aisle seat next to you? That’s as good a reason as any, and in that case, you’ll definitely want to invest in headphones that include active noise cancellation, which allows you to block out any and all unwanted distractions.
The good news for you is that all Bowers & Wilkins headphones and earphones feature noise-cancelling technology. For example, the award-winning Px7 S2 headphones use a total of six microphones for outstanding noise cancellation that shuts out unwanted intrusions without harming your favorite album’s dynamics and energy. Careful positioning and angling of those microphones ensures excellent call quality too, even in noisy environments. They also sound fantastic, as you would expect.
However, if you are after the last word in sound quality and the listening experience is key, we definitely have you covered. Because even though our high-performance range has pristine sound quality built into every single product we manufacture, there are still degrees of sound quality to be enjoyed.
That’s where our flagship headphones come into their own: the sensational Px8 are the ultimate combination of exceptional performance, premium materials, intelligent technology, and smart features. Px8’s precisely angled Carbon Cone drive units reduce distortion, resulting in massively improved clarity. The result is unparalleled accuracy and realism.
Both sets of headphones we’ve highlighted so far are over-ear models – meaning they have ear cups that sit over your ears, linked by a headband. But these are not for everyone, which is where our in-ear wireless earbuds come into play.
The Pi5 S2 and Pi7 S2 True Wireless earbuds with active noise-cancellation are the result of extensive research, uncompromised engineering and an unyielding desire to make the best-sounding in-ear headphones possible.
With Pi7 S2 you can hear your favorite music as it was meant to be heard, thanks to a true 24-bit connection between left and right earbuds for superior sound quality plus high-resolution wireless audio that adjusts dynamically to optimize performance. Plus, advanced active noise-cancellation monitors noise and adapts to your surroundings, so nothing gets in the way of the music you love. They even have a unique Audio rRetransmission Case that allows you to stream wirelessly from a wide range of sources, including an in-plane entertainment system, a laptop and more.
Pi5 S2 offers many of the same great features and will charge on any compatible wireless charging pad for seamless charging on the go. And Quick Charge Support means just 15 minutes of charging is good for two hours of listening and communication time — so you’re never separated from your music for long. Perfect for last-minute plans!
One of the trickiest decisions you used to have to make with a pair of headphones was wired or wireless. But no more! Thanks to advances in wireless technology and innovations such as True Wireless as seen on our Pi5 S2 and Pi7 S2 earphones, you can now experience wireless sound quality that can rival the results you would get from a wired pair of headphones.
So, whether you are buying headphones for immersive listening while travelling or at home, Bowers & Wilkins’ line-up has something for everyone.
