B&W Px7 S2 Bluetooth Noise-Cancelling Headphones Review – More Style and Substance | News

A lot has happened since the British speaker manufacturer entered the headphone market with the P5 in 2010. The British are now one of the most renowned and successful providers of over-ear and in-ear headphones worldwide. At least in the higher classes. The headphones from B&W are not only considered to be powerful, but also elegant and stylish. The new (preliminary) top-of-the-line headphones Px7 S2 are a careful further development of the Px7, but in which hardly a stone was left unturned.

The B&W P5 from 2010. At that time it was still purely passive and wired.

When B&W launches a new model, it’s worth taking a closer look. It then reveals more differences to its predecessors, the PX7, than you might think at first glance. Actually, the new Px7 S2 looks more like the PX5 model (test report) than the PX7 (test report).

Technically, the Px7 S2 was supplemented by the latest 24-bit wireless platform from B&W, among other things. aptX/HD/Adaptive, AAC and of course the basic protocol SBC are supported as Bluetooth codecs. The technical features of the Px7 S2 include hybrid noise cancellation (with four microphones, two additional mics for telephony), ambient pass-through (transparency mode), wear detection sensor, and a USB-C port for charging and digital audio connection to one Mac/PC or a suitable iDevice. An adapter cable from 3.5 mm jack to USB-C is also included, but purely passive operation is not possible with it.

The two 40 mm drivers are aligned at an angle and are in comparatively compact housings. B&W puts the playing time with one battery charge at around 30 hours. 15 minutes of charging should provide another 7 hours of music enjoyment. A full charge takes about two hours. These are not record values, but still much longer runtimes than is possible with TWEs (True Wireless Earphones) without refueling.
