Bowers & Wilkens PX7

Now this is a pair of handsome headphones. So elegant and durable but can the sound match its good looks? Yes. Yes they can. These are often compared to the Bose 700 and the Sony WH1000M3. The differences are so subtle in every aspect that it is a very difficult to choose the best sounding one.

The Bowers & Wilkens are so balanced that they didn’t even bother to put EQ settings in their phone app. Now that’s confidence when you think that your headphones are the shit. I think the sound that they were going for is ultimate balance between the lows, mids and highs and great separation to boot. Some would say that they are very technical sounding thus giving up warmth. Most will love these just the way they are. These also came with 43mm drivers to give you the signature sound that only the Bowers & Wilkens brand can give. And of course I cant forget that these also come with a impressive adaptive noise canceling feature.

But of course only premium materials were used in the construction of these beautiful headphones. Using high-tech carbon fiber composite to create the arms of the earcups to the headband Bowers & Wilkens really pushed the envelope in designing the PX series

The outer earcups and headband are covered by matching fabric materials. The center of the outer earcup uses an aluminum plate to finish off the look. The cushioned earcups use leatherette covered memory foam. Which are very comfortable. The use of plastic seems to be at a minimum for the building materials of these headphones. Which is exceedingly rare these days. But the thing plastic has over the premium materials is weight. These weigh in at a bit over 300 grams where the Sony’s weigh in at about 260 grams. Not huge numbers but still a number to be aware of.

Battery life is really extraordinary with these. It has a claimed battery life of 30 hours on a full charge and if that is not enough for you a 15 minute quick charge will supply you with another 6 hours of audio playtime. The Bowers & Wilkens PX7 are worth the price. So if you want something good looking and different to adorn your head then these are for you.

The Bowers & Wilkens  PX 5’s are very similar to the PX 7″s. The main difference is the PX 5 are the on the ear headphones whereas the PX 7’s are over the ear headphones. Now I am not a big fan of on the ear headphones mainly because I don’t like any kind of pressure on my ear, so I would rather use the PX 7’s over the  PX 5 on the ear setup.

Over the ear is much more comfortable for me and gives me a better fit to seal my music in and keep outside sound out. But that’s just my preference. The bass is a little less apparent than the PX 7’s only because of smaller 35mm drivers in them. But don’t get me wrong these headphones hold themselves well against the competition.

The same fine premium materials used in building the PX 7’s are in these as well. The same fabric materials, the same carbon fiber composite and the same metal insert on the earcup. The good looks of the PX 7 are evident in the PX 5 too.

One other difference is the claimed battery life these have on a full charge. The PX 5 can last up to 25 hours and has a quick charge ability to give you an additional 3 hours of audio playback with a 15 minute charge. Not to shabby if you ask me…Are you asking me?

Bowers & Wilkens PX

This is the first of the PX series put out by Bowers & Wilkins. Just as handsome as it brothers are. If you purchase these you will get an impressive immersive sound to enjoy your music. Like the whole Bowers & Wilkens PX series these are for audiophile level listening. Like classical, jazz, rock. If you listen primarily to hip-hop or rap these will do you no favors. The bass is more neutral and tight than booming. Just something to be aware of. The mids and highs stand out magnificently with outstanding separation.

The whole PX series uses a USB-C connection. Not only that but the whole series also has the ability to pause your music as you lift one earcup to listen to the outside and resume play as you lower the earcup back down. The PX also has Adaptive Noise Cancelling, you can adjust it through the controls on the headphones themselves or on the Bowers & Wilkens phone app.

The battery life was considered quite good when this was first released a few years ago. But here are the claimed specs of the PX. First, it takes three hours to charge the battery to 100%. Its claimed audio playback is 22 hours.But you can get more if you turn of the ANC.

There it is. My review on Bowers & Wilkens headphones. Thank you for reading my article. If you have any comments please reply down below.

Thank you.


Listening to music is subjective. The sound that emanates from any of these headphones, earbuds, speakers and the like, will be different for each individual. So please be aware, what may sound good to me doesn’t mean it will sound good to you. Please read or watch reviews on any product that I showcase. Or listen to a friends’. Or, go to a retail store and try it out there. A little knowledge can go a long way…then you can buy from me. (Wink, wink)

  1. First, I like the topic of “Oh to be handsome and sexy” lol 

    Concept of the Topic idea is very good. I saw you also put some videos to support the introduction of products.

    I thought there had just 1 product reviews. However, I saw 3 actually. Perhaps you can put “Navigation” on your website, and let us know how many products reviews are there?

    Also, any other special features of Bowers & Wilkens this brand? Like the special features of “43mm drivers of signature sound” that only “Bowers & Wilkens” this brand can give you, people will think of “why do I need to buy this?” 

    And one more thing, I thought it’s an introduction of product, until I saw “my review”, then I known it’s product reviews. lol


  2. music is actually something I can’t find myself doing without… music gives me some form of peace and comfort when I’m sad I play music on my headphones eventually every moment.. getting to know about The Bowers & Wilkens headphones I guess from your review they will definitely be the best and I look forward to getting them… thanks a lot for sharing such an insightful review

    1. I have very good headphones all over my site. None are rated under 4 out of 5 stars. Bowers & Wilkens are great headphones so you will be pleased with them but there are less expensive options out there as well.



  3. I liked it when you wrote about the materials used in the making, which shows that it is really environmentally friendly. Another thing that overwhelmed me was how long the battery lasts. Incredible! I must confess I did not even know this brand existed but after reading this post and seeing the number of benefits I already feel like buying one.

  4. Hi there,

    Awesome review, I loved reading it!

    My daughter loves to listen to music very loud and I, like listening to quiet music. So there is always a conflict about this between my daughter and me. So I thought I would buy her a Bluetooth handphone so that she can enjoy her music without making me going crazy:).
    I really like the Bowers and Wilkens Px7, as it only requires 15 minutes to recharge the batteries. Awesome! I didn’t see any price?? And I looked all over and didn’t find any link as well.

    Thank you!

  6. It’s been a while that I have been looking for a new set of headphones since my razer ones broke down. I have been eyeing Bower & Wilkens for some time now and they are making some totally amazing products. But their price is bit high compared to other sets. But I guess this is to be expected with the quality these have. Thanks for the review. I will certainly keep this model into consideration.

  7. Hello there thanks for the review it was really helpful. Bluetooth or wireless headphones are the best type of headphones to use on any device because they have a high quality range. I have not used this product before but from what it seems this headset is worth it apart from its portability, it also produces quality sound, I think it is worth the purchase.
