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.
The most important data at a glance:
- New Hi-Res drivers positioned at an angle in the ear cups for a fascinatingly spatial soundstage
- New active noise-canceling system for extremely musical sound and improved microphone arrangement for excellent voice quality on calls
- New, slimmer design with an improved fit, higher-quality materials and first-class wearing comfort – Thanks to the memory foam ear cushions, even during long listening sessions
- Setup and fine-tuning via the Bowers & Wilkins Music App e.g. B. Adjusting treble, bass and turning on/off noise cancellation, transparency mode or wearing sensor
- Price: 429 euros in the colors black, gray or blue can be ordered directly from B&W or via Amazon.
