With the Px7 S2, Bowers & Wilkins has a classy and comfortably fitting headphone in its portfolio that ticks all the boxes. If it had touch controls on one of the ear cups, it would truly be perfect.

The Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2 are headphones that impressed us because of their very good sound and great workmanship. It looks like a handcrafted English sports car reminiscent of the good old days. The Px7 S2 also scores well in the technology department. For example with the emphatically convincing noise suppression (Noise Cancelling). It looks elegant and is comfortable to wear. The earcups rotate 180 degrees, which is important for travelers, and the size of the headband is infinitely adjustable. At 307 grams, it is not a light Englishman, but the wearing comfort invites you to long music sessions and that is certainly also due to the high-quality materials, which also include the memory padding.

The Px7 S2 supports the aptX codec if the player also supports it. Android phones use the aptX HD codec and iPhones use AAC. Unfortunately, the Englishman lacks an analog jack input, but an adapter cable from USB-C to 3.5mm jack is included. The Px7 S2 naturally has one multipoint connection. This is practical in everyday office life. The speech intelligibility is also quite convincing, both in normal phone calls and in team calls.

The Bowers & Wilkins appreciates good, old music that still comes from real instruments. Today’s radio pop, whose origin clearly goes back to digital audio workstations (DAW) such as Ableton, Cubase or FL Studio, is not what the Brit likes very much. Not that he doesn’t get along with it, but you can just tell that completely overloaded soundscapes of modern pop producers are not his specialty. The Px7 S2 loves the sound of the 70s and 80s – with a guitar solo by Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler or Dolly Parton’s >Jolene<, the B&W feels in its element and blossoms into top form in terms of sound. It may be that you have to taste the basic setting for bass and treble for one or the other song. What's really great is that you can also very listen to soft music can and is perfectly supported by the noise cancellation. In general, she has us Noice-Cancelling-Function fully convinced. When the neighbor is mowing the lawn, the Px7 S2 is the perfect noise stopper. Perfect, really perfect.

The Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2 has built-in Carrying sensorsthat detect whether the headphones are being worn or not. An app can be used to set how sensitive the sensors should react. There are three levels: In the first level, the music stops as soon as you lift one side of the headphones. With the second stage, the music only stops when you take off the headphones completely. At the third stage, the music doesn’t stop at all.

Fazit: Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2

Going back to the image of the English sports car, the Px7 S2 is the classic Aston Martin DB9. Beautiful, noble and successful. Beautiful sound, elegant design and successful technology.
