British premium audio brand Bowers & Wilkins has introduced its newest flagship wireless headphone product, the Px8. Available now, the Px8 provides lower distortion and better resolution than previous models for reference-quality audio.
The headphones launch in tan and black finishes with die-cast aluminum arms, metal detailing, and Nappa leather trim.
For improved user experience, the Px8 works with the official Bowers & Wilkins Music App available in the App Store.
A new flagship
Inspired by the Carbon Dome drive units used in the company’s 700 Series loudspeaker range, the Px8’s new Carbon Cones deliver are said to provide a combination of ultra-fast response plus exceptionally low distortion throughout the frequency range. In addition, resolution, detail, and timing surpass the Px7 S2, which launched earlier this year at $399.
The Px8 replaces the highly-rated Px7, which remains on the market.
Inside the Px8 over-ear wireless headphones, you’ll find Qualcomm’s aptXTM Adaptive wireless technology that works flawlessly across multiple devices, including smartphones, tablets, and computers. For a wired experience, the product ships with USB-C and 3.5mm analog cables that arrive in a stylish carry case.
In announcing the product, Giles Pocock, Bowers & Wilkins Vice-President of Brand Marketing, noted: “I’m thrilled that today, we’re transforming customer expectations in the premium headphone category with our new Px8. It perfectly encapsulates everything we stand for as a brand, with outstanding sound quality that properly reflects our True Sound promise, plus unrivaled design and finish.”

- Support for Deezer, Qobuz, and TIDAL streaming in-app
- 30 hours of listening from a single charge with 15 minute quick charge
