If you’re a music lover, getting the most faithful listening experience from your favourite tracks means having a pair of headphones that truly capture the original intent of each recording. And if you’re going to settle in for listening sessions for hours on end, you want expertly engineered headphones that feel comfortable and are seamless to use too.

Offering class-leading high-resolution sound, outstanding noise-cancellation, premium design and exceptional build quality, the Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2, Px8 and Px8 007 Edition wireless headphones deliver a truly unmatched high-end listening experience. 

Whether you want deep, expressive bass for driving electronic music or surgically precise resolution to communicate every harmonic of pianos and strings, these over-ear headphones have been designed to deliver sound that is as close to the artist’s intent as possible. And there’s a reason for that…

Bowers & Wilkins has a 40-year relationship with Abbey Road Studios where its flagship 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers are used as reference monitors in the recording process. This means that many of the most iconic albums and movie soundtracks of all time were first heard on Bowers & Wilkins speakers. With that extensive first-hand experience and expertise, it’s no surprise that the brand’s approach to headphone design has been equally focused on delivering the most faithful listening experience possible.

Nowhere is this commitment to authenticity clearer than in Bowers & Wilkins’ connection with recording artists. For the new Px7 S2 and Px8, the brand teamed up with Wolf Alice and Moses Boyd, two acts synonymous with meticulous craft whose artistry has been recognised by the Mercury Prize. The ‘Hear True’ campaign invited both artists to explore why it’s important for the listening experience to remain true to their original intent.

Bowers & Wilkins speakers have also played a central role in many movie soundtrack recordings over the past 40 years, not least the James Bond movie theme songs and scores for Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015). And its iconic 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers helped Abbey Road Studios engineers create Bond 25, an album celebrating the 60 years of James Bond music featuring brand new arrangements of all 25 Bond themes, performed by the world-class Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. 

In light of this, it was only natural that Bowers & Wilkins became a partner of the iconic film franchise to create a special edition version of its flagship Px8 wireless headphones, the Px8 007 Edition, featuring an exclusive Midnight Blue Nappa leather finish inspired by the dinner jacket worn by Bond in his first on-screen appearance in Dr. No (1962).

Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2

Featuring custom-designed proprietary 40mm drive units, the Px7 S2 offers detailed and immersive audio that sounds exactly as the artist intended.

Its premium design and build quality make it comfortable to wear all day, thanks to luxurious memory foam earpads that perfectly cradle your ears. 

Bowers & Wilkins Px8

The Px8 is the very best wireless headphone Bowers & Wilkins has created. Upgraded Carbon Cone drive units, inspired by its 700 Series range of loudspeakers, significantly reduce unwanted distortion and deliver a more realistic and immersive listening experience. Additionally, a combination of aptX Adaptive hi-res wireless audio and 24-bit digital signal processing ensure it can obtain the absolute best results from high-resolution audio sources. A whopping 30-hour battery life guarantees you’ll always have enough juice to make it through the day, while diecast aluminium arms and fine Nappa leather trim make the Px8 as enjoyable to wear as they are to listen to.

Bowers & Wilkins Px8 007 Edition

What better way to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise than with headphones as stylish and tasteful as 007 himself? With a subtle laser etched 007 logo on the top of the earcup and a unique red power slider, the Px8 007 Edition channels the timeless style of James Bond. And the attention to detail doesn’t end at the perfectly engineered sound. The earpads and headband are trimmed in Midnight Blue Nappa leather in a homage to the dinner jacket worn by James Bond in his first on-screen appearance in Dr. No (1962), while the acoustically transparent fabric covering the drivers is emblazoned with the iconic Gun Barrel design that heralds the start of every James Bond adventure.
