The British of B&W, in the prospect of big surprises towards the end of the year, have meanwhile released a nice hardware novelty right away thanks to several improvements granted as a dowry to the just presented premium Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2 headphones.
After the luxurious Panorama 3 soundbar, the British Bowers & Wilkins, awaiting the Px8 version scheduled for the end of the year, with a price of 549 dollars and premium specifications (from materials to features), has announced the new Px7 S2 wireless headphones, on sale at authorized dealers and on the official online store at the price of 429 euros.
The B&W Px7 S2 headset has undergone a restyling which, after making it lighter and thinner, has improved its comfort also by providing better memory foam padding for the pavilions: the colors, each with complementary details, are three, namely black , blue and gray. The control can take place in various ways, first of all starting from the physical buttons on each unit, also useful for calling up the voice assistant provided by the associated telephone.

Other factors also contribute to the sound quality: specifically, the DSP (digital signal processing) designed by the brand allows high-resolution (24-bit) streaming from compatible services, while the Qualcomm aptX Adaptive codec makes adjustments based on quality. of the connection from the source, to ensure optimal listening at all times.
One of the highlights is the improved active noise cancellation, ANC: of the six microphones present, two are in charge of suppressing noise to deliver clear calls, while two react to ambient noise and two others are in charge of paying attention to the output of the units. of issue. In total, therefore, the ANC, capable of reducing noise by 30 dB, and flanked by a transparency mode for the knowledge of what is happening around, can therefore count on 4 microphones
