Bowers & Wilkins, a popular British audio brand, has launched a new finish of its flagship wireless headphone, the Px8.
Now available in a royal burgundy nappa leather finish, complemented by refined gold detailing, Bowers & Wilkins says the Px8 balances users’ desire for high-quality sound, as well as design, build and finish quality in a wireless headphone product.
The global manufacturer points out that all three Px8 models feature a single cast-aluminum arm structure that references Bowers & Wilkins’ signature design language, along with a diamond-cut bright edge on each elliptical logo plate. According to the company, the earcups, memory-foam cushions and headband are also all trimmed in soft Nappa leather that it says provides users with a comfortable fit and a premium feel.
Bowers & Wilkins boasts the Px8 delivers its high levels of sound quality through its high-performance 40mm Carbon Cone drive units, based on technologies cascaded from the brand’s reference-quality loudspeakers. B&W explains these driver units are combined with its proprietary DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technologies to deliver 24-bit high-resolution sound to reproduce today’s streaming services.
The new Px8’s revised acoustic tuning is designed to provide even more detail to give users a combination of ultra-fast response and low distortion throughout the frequency range. The result says the company is increased resolution, realism and dynamics that surpasses the bar set by both the Px7 S2 and the new Px7 S2e headphones.
Bowers & Wilkins add the Px8 headphones are available in the new royal burgundy, as well as the existing tan, and black nappa leather finishes.
The MSRP for the Bowers & Wilkins Px8 wireless headphones is $699.
