Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2e headphones are a definite step forward compared to the quite successful Px7 S2 model. According to the manufacturer, there has been a “significant improvement in overall sound
quality”, apparently due in large part to a “significantly upgraded DSP”, as the slightly angled 40mm
drivers remain the same.
In addition, the new product adds active noise reduction with transparency mode. 6 microphones are used at once. Two of them “listen” to the headphones themselves, two listen to ambient noise, and two more
ensure voice clarity during calls. The model supports the Qualcomm aptX Adaptive Bluetooth codec – the quality of wireless audio transmission should be at its best. But you can also use USB-C and 3.5 mm audio cables.
The manufacturer promised a battery life of 30 hours, and a 15-minute charge is enough for the
headphones to last for 7 hours. Control and configuration of the Px7 S2e is available from the Bowers & Wilkins Music app. There’s access to an equalizer, a selection of ANC modes, and even direct access to streaming from platforms like Deezer, obuz, Tidal, and TuneIn, with more to come “soon.” The headphones are already available in the usual blue, gray, and black finishes, to which green has also been added.
