    3.0 out of 5 stars SEE UPDATE: An excellent headphone ruined by a poorly implemented volume limiter.
    By Daniel James on October 9, 2019
    Currently the PX7 retail for $399 USD which puts these firmly into the high-end wireless headphone category.

    The design of the PX7 follows Bowers & Wilkins tradition with the graciously designed headband arms down to the aluminum capsule on the ear cups with the Bowers & Wilkins logo engraved beautifully. It’s lighter than the PX and P7 thanks to the new carbon fiber design in the headband arms. The structural integrity hasn’t been compromised so these should be able to stand the test of time. The ear pads and headband under portion seem to be a high-quality leatherette which is very soft to the touch. The other portion of the headphone is made up of a chemically treated fabric that supposedly will repel moisture or stains. The ear cups of the PX7 don’t fold inwards, but rather fold flat to stow away into their case. The case is a hard-shell design with a moderate footprint similar to that of the Bose and Sony offerings. The controls are button based with your standard volume up button, multi-function button, volume down button and power switch on the right earcup. The power switch doubles as a way to initiate Bluetooth pairing when flicked all the way up and held for 5 seconds. You can force the headphone to disconnect from sources by flicking this power switch to the Bluetooth pairing section twice in quick succession. You can also find the headphone jack input and USB-C female port for charging as well as the USB DAC function. On the left earcup there’s a singular button responsible for the ANC control. You can switch between ANC low, ANC high and ANC Auto where it detects the environmental noises around you and adjusts the ANC accordingly. If you long press this button for about 2 seconds, it puts the PX7 into ambient aware mode. Your music’s volume will be greatly reduced and the outside noises around you can now be heard clearly. Great for having a quick conversation or listening for announcements without taking the headphones off.

    The comfort of wearing the PX7 is an example of a company that listens. The PX which is the predecessor was a very nicely designed headphone aesthetically and physically with its build quality. Ergonomically however, it leaved a lot to be desired due to the materials chosen. The clamping force on the PX was too tight and the ear pads had this hard ridge that felt like something was digging into the side of your head. So, comfort wise, I could only tolerate the PX for about 30 mins. The PX7 improves substantially in this regard. The headphones are lighter thanks to the carbon fiber materials as opposed to metal and the clamp isn't as vicious as before and the ear pads are now plush and soft to the touch. I can listen to the PX7 for prolonged periods without fatigue just like my Bose And Sony pairs.

    Battery life of the PX7 is up there with the best in this class. You can get up to 30 hours of playback with a 15-minute quick charge giving you 5 hours of playback. Also, the method of charging is via USB-C.

    The ANC performance of the PX7 has been significantly improved over the PX. The PX was capable of reducing a ton of noise when the flight mode was activated, but this was at the detriment to the sound quality. In office mode, the PX sounded exceptional and very similar to no ANC activated. However, with the ANC set to office mode, it struggled to block out noises from busses, trains and airplanes which effectively defeated their purpose as a noise cancelling headphone. The PX7 has excellent noise cancelling which is about as good as that of the Bose NC 700 but not the Sony XM3. I’ve worn the PX7 while commuting in NYC and I can safely say the ANC performance of the PX7 is very effective at reducing the amount of outside noise seeping into your listening session. Compared to the recently announced Sennheiser Momentum Wireless M3, the PX7 perform better at blocking out noises. Thankfully, the PX7 doesn’t suffer the same sound quality deterioration that plagued the PX while maximum ANC is enabled.

    The supported Bluetooth codecs of the PX7 is SBC, AAC and aptX adaptive. aptX adaptive allows for the codec to scale between aptX LL, aptX and aptX HD depending on the environmental interference and current content being played. The standard of Bluetooth supported by the PX7 is the 5.0 version. The PX7 allows for Bluetooth multi-point so you can have 2 devices simultaneously connected at once. Audio can only play from one device at a time, but the switching off between the two is seamless. Also, within the app, you can see and control the devices that have been connected to the PX7 previously or are currently connected similar to the Bose QC35II and NC 700. Range and stability of the Bluetooth performance has been excellent so far in the office, at home and the midst of NYC and all of the various wireless interference.

    The PX7 equips wear sensors which in theory auto pauses and plays the music depending on whether you’re wearing the headphones or not. If the sensors don’t detect anyone wearing them after a set time within the companion app the PX7 will go into standby to save power. So far, I haven’t had any false triggers of pausing my music while I am still wearing them like I did with the PX so I will keep this feature enabled until it annoys me. Sadly, there’s no dedicated voice assistant button like on the new Sennheiser Momentum Wireless M3, Jabra Elite 85h, Bose NC 700 or Sony XM3. You summon your voice assistant on the PX7 by long pressing the multi-function button while not on a current call. The PX7 allows for USB DAC functionality as well as normal Bluetooth operation while charging which is something the Bose, Jabra’s and Sony’s cannot do.

    Call quality of the PX7 is good but it’s not as good as the Bose NC 700 (The best in class for call quality) or Jabra Elite 85 in loud environments. It just doesn’t separate your voice as well from the noise as the other 2 listed headphones. However, calls taken in moderately loud to quiet environments will be just fine with the PX7.

    The sound of the PX7 is very broad, clean, balanced and detailed. The bass is excellently controlled in its delivery. Dynamics are in the upmost of abundance thanks to this. You can easily discern the subtle nuances in the bass notes regardless of how complex the musical presentation gets. This is a great tuning for modern genres thanks to the bass attack and the visceral nature behind it. But also, it plays well with more intricate genres due to the control of the bass while a bit boosted not hindering the details and progression of the mix. The tonal balance of the bass slightly favors the mid-bass attack with the sub bass and upper bass being more neutral in the mix. Integration into the midrange Is smooth with no perception of bleed that can reduce the ability to pick up the clarity in the foundations in the human voice and other instruments. The midrange is a bit recessed sounding and provides distance from the instruments but sometimes can make the mix sound a bit lifeless and hollow at times. The depth and separation however is excellent and the ability to pick up the directional cues in the audio is seamless as a result. The overall warmth in this tuning helps to reduce listening fatigue and plays well with commuting due to auditory masking from environmental noises. Upper midrange has a small presence boost to bring the vocals and instruments a bit forward and increase the perception of clarity in that region and thankfully it’s not overly done to introduce too much harshness or sibilance to the mix. Treble is slightly subdued, but smooth, well controlled and extends excellently as to not subtract from the sense of ambiance and air in the music. The soundstage is a direct result of this well refined and extended treble. It’s quite large for a closed back design and probably the largest and most well-constructed that I have heard in its class. There’s ample information on the X, Y and Z axis that sort of makes the music sound 3D in nature. Sadly, there’s no ability to EQ these headphones from its app. So, if you find that you want to adjust the tonal balance you’re stuck with using the EQ on the device it is connected to or the stock sound of the PX7.

    So my conclusion is that the PX7 is an excellent well rounded pair of noise cancelling headphones and why you may ask? Well, let’s see. They sound excellent. They block out a substantial amount of noise allowing this sound to be experienced wherever you go along with an ambient aware mode. They have a 30 hour battery life with a 5 hour playtime after only 15 mins of charging via USB-C. The microphone for calls is good and shouldn’t be problematic unless you’re in a very noisy environment. The companion app is pretty good except for having an EQ. They can connect to 2 devices at once. They are well built and look premium and elegant. They are very comfortable to wear for prolonged listening sessions. They can fold away into a hard case that takes up a similar footprint to that of the Sony’s and Bose. No video lip sync issues and can be used for gaming thanks to aptX adaptive.

    Bowers & Wilkins did a great job as a successor to the PX. Wow.

    Compared to the Sony WH1000Xm3’s the PX7 falls short in noise cancelling, comfort and a customizable sound from an app EQ. However, the PX7 is able to connect to two Bluetooth devices at once, has better build quality and is slightly better in microphone performance. Sound between the two depends on your preferences. The Sony’s default tuning is more bass emphasized with more midrange presence as well. The upper mids and lower treble is subdued in comparison to the PX7. There is a small peak around 8-10KHz on the Sony’s bringing some sparkle to the music. The PX7 treble is more smooth in nature. Overall, the Sony’s will sound more robust and richer due to the bass forward sound. The PX7 will sound more detailed and spacious. Depending on the genre of music, one sound might work better than the other.

    Compared to the Bose NC 700 Headphones the PX7 falls short in terms of microphone performance. However the PX7 has a longer battery life and in my opinion a better sound that doesn’t distort and lose nearly all of its bass while boosting the upper midrange like the Bose NC 700 does when you raise the volume.

    Compared to the Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless the PX7 has a slightly inferior microphone and a customizable sound option from the app EQ. However the PX7 has a longer battery, better noise cancelling and isn’t picky about which USBC cable or source is used to charge the headset. The Momentum’s sound excellent. Bass is quite boosted and is the most bass heavy of the bunch between the PX7, XM3 and 700’s. Bass control is great but the volume of bass makes it sound boomy at times. The midrange and treble of the Momentum’s however is very nicely tuned and is smooth, clear and detailed. Soundstage is good, but isn’t as expansive as the PX7. The PX7 has less bass emphasis, less lower mids emphasis but similar treble emphasis as the Sennheiser’s. The PX7 tuning is more akin to an audiophile sound signature with a bit of warmth. The Sennheiser’s is more akin to modern music packing tons of bass without losing much detail and clarity in the mids and treble. However do to the level of bass presence in the stock tuning, there is an occasional tendency to mask some lower midrange nuances.

    UPDATE: 10/15/19

    It has come to my attention that the PX7 does suffer from sound degradation when the ANC is activated on max. It’s still not as bad as the sound quality hit the PX faces when max ANC is engaged but it’s still a problem nonetheless. Compared to ANC turned off, the sound signature of the PX7 gets a bit warmer sounding and closed in. I can deal with that a bit. However, the big issue I have is at higher volumes there is some sort of dynamic range or volume limiter in effect that hurts some of the fidelity in the music. It happens at all volumes, but it’s more apparent at higher volumes. For example, when I’m listening at a volume level where I want to feel immersed into the music and rock out, the volume on certain frequencies in the music raises and lowers as to not distort the speaker. When I turn off the ANC, this phenomenon doesn’t occur which leads me to believe B&W implemented this to purposely restrain your music from distorting the speaker whilst ANC is active. This doesn’t happen with my Sony WH1000XM3 or Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless when they both have their ANC on max. Due to this digital volume limiter in place, these headphones are sadly ruined for me.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Awful quality hardware, zero customer support.
    By Leigh H on January 19, 2020

    After only a few months of ownership, the headphones snapped whilst I was putting them on my head! There is a weak link attaching the headband to the ear cup, now they are rendered useless.

    The worst part is the absolutely ATROCIOUS customers service, Amazon will not take any responsibility and they point you to the manufacturer, Bowers and Wilkins make it impossible for you to contact them, therefore I'm now stuck with a $400 paper weight.

    Reviewed in Italy on November 8, 2019
    A malinquore le sto rendendo, perche? Premetto che tempo fa presi le precedenti Px e dovetti renderle perché perdevano facilmente il sigillo dei padiglioni con conseguente drastico calo delle prestazioni audio con bassi azzerati (suono "scatolato" orribile) e siccome io porto gli occhiali, anche questa condizione comporta quel problema, erano non adatte a me. Poi ho preso le P7 wireless dal warehouse "usato come muovo" una cuffia dal suono spettacolare, molto meglio delle Px! Peccato che ha funzionato solo 2 giorni dopodiché si accendeva SOLO con il caricabatterie collegato. Rese con molto rammarico perché mi piacevano tantissimo e nuove non si trovavano più da nessuna parte (nemmeno sul sito del produttore). Quindi sono passato a Sony WH1000XM2 (gran bella cuffia)

    Veniamo alle Px7 : ho atteso con fiducia il rilascio del nuovo modello da parte del produttore inglese... Ultimamente ho acquistato una Sennheiser Momentum 3 perché ho passato le Sony a mio figlio. Nel frattempo è divenuta disponibile la Px7 e l'ho presa per confrontarla con l'ottima Sennheiser Momentum 3 e magari, se fosse stata superiore, tenerla. La Px7 è sicuramente una buona cuffia, ha tutte le carte per giocarsela con prodotti di pari categoria.

    Buon palcoscenico e separazione degli strumenti (alla pari con Momentum 3, da qui in poi M3)
    Buona riproduzione di bassi e medi (M3 però fa meglio)
    Ha una ottima batteria, (M3 qui perde con le sue 14/15 ore REALI)
    Portata bluetooth eccezionale (M3 nella norma)
    Molto confortevole (M3 più "morbida" e con ottimi padiglioni/archetto in VERA pelle)
    Comandi fisici comodi, facilmente individuabili e reattivi.(M3 un pelo più scomodi/piccoli)
    Connessione multipla funzionale (M3 idem)
    USB type C con ricarica rapida. (M3 idem)
    Riduzione del rumore sotto Sony ma comunque accettabile (M3 meno efficace con frequenze medie tipo voce umana ecc.)

    Anche se comoda in testa si sente abbastanza rigida (M3 più soffice/elastica)
    L'app richiede obbligatoriamente che sia attivata la geolocalizzazione per dialogare con le cuffie, PERCHÉ?!!! (M3 no)
    I sensori per la pausa smart funzionano (quando lo fanno) a casaccio. Ho provato a cambiare livello di sensibilità, resettare, reinstallare... Niente da fare! Inoltre ho scritto a B&W e non mi hanno risposto. (M3 non sbaglia un colpo!)
    Non ha un equalizzatore (M3 oltre a suonare divinamente già stock, ha l'eq nell'app e salva eventuali regolazioni nella cuffia stessa in modo che l'equalizzazione sia disponibile qualsiasi fonte si ascolti).
    Microfono per le chiamate mediocre (M3 superiore)
    L'app non si collega alle cuffie se la musica è in riproduzione, bisogna stopparla. (M3 nessun problema, collegamento tra app e cuffie rapido anche durante lo streaming)
    Non c'è un modo per sapere che percentuale di batteria resta, c'è solo grafica con "riempimento" icona batteria. (M3 mostra la percentuale nell'app oppure la comunica tenendo premuto il tasto multifunzione per 2 sec. Gli step mostrati sono del 20% dal 100% al 20% poi con avviso vocale dice meno del 20% restante, ma nell'app mostra anche il valore10%)
    Mancanza di avviso sonoro al raggiungimento del volume min/max (M3 lo fa e fa anche un bip ad ogni pressione tasti volume)

    Bene penserete che la renda per quanto ho scritto fino ad ora... No quello l'ho scritto per dare quante più informazioni possibili a chi cerca una cuffia di questo livello (perciò il confronto)

    Ciò che mi costringe a rendere queste cuffie che sarebbero una buona scelta è la riproduzione dei TONI ALTI.

    La risposta in frequenza (che, in questo somiglia molto alle Sony XM3) ha un vistoso calo nel range 2/6Khz e due picchi positivi a 10 e 16Khz (orientativamente). Tradotto: gli strumenti e le voci mancano di quella bella presenza che hanno sulle M3 ( e fin qui sarebbe sopportabile) il problema fondamentale (PER ME) è che quell'enfasi sugli alti estremi, che potrebbe anche sembrare piacevole per l'ascolto di 1 (UN) brano, alla lunga diventa sgradevole e veramente affaticante. Ascoltare in continuazione quei piatti di batteria sibilanti è snervante! Non so se sia io troppo sensibile a quelle frequenze (che però se equilibrate mi piacciono molto) sta di fatto che per me è quasi una tortura.

    Sono rimasto molto deluso dal fatto che B&W per l'ennesima volta NON abbia saputo eguagliare/migliorare il suono splendido del suo ormai vecchio prodotto P7 wireless. Menomale c'è riuscita Sennheiser con la Momentum 3 che, seppur con i sui limiti, suona divinamente e con una firma sonora molto simile alle P7 B&W. Chi ha ascoltato le P7 sa di cosa parlo e poi basta fare una ricerca su queste cuffie per leggere cosa scrivono "semplici" appassionati e/o addetti ai lavori. Ecco le M3 suonano così se non meglio.

    Lo so... Sono andato credo comunque di aver fatto un piacere a chi ha sete di informazioni DISINTERESSATE E SINCERE!

    P. S. Dopo averne posseduto o provate diverse, e di diversi marchi premium, posso affermare che la cuffia perfetta in tutto NON esiste!
    Se cercate una buona tuttofare, e non cercate la massima qualità audio Px7 ok.
    Se la vostra priorità è la riduzione del rumore Sony WH1000XM3 docet!
    Se qualità sonora, materiali ed estetica ai massimi livelli sono la vostra priorità: Sennheiser Momentum 3 🔝🔝🔝

    Hace unos años Bowers & Wilkins sacó los PX, que eran unos auriculares con cancelación de ruido que personalmente odié porque eran tremendamente incómodos y porque tenían grandes problemas que, siendo auriculares de gama alta, no se entendían. Varios años más tarde B&W parece haber aprendido la lección y ha sacado estos PX7 (Además de los PX5 que son también un buen par de auriculares de gama media por su precio actual) que han salido a hacerle la competencia a los gigantes de Sony y Bose. En este análisis voy a tratar de comparar estos con los mejores auriculares de gama alta actuales que han pasado por mis manos, como son los Bose 700 y Bose QC35, los Sony WH1000XM4, WH1000XM3 y WH1000XM2, los Beoplay H8i, los Jabra Elite 85H y los Surface Headphones.

    ✅ Buena cancelación de ruido dentro de los gama alta. Es cierto que Bowers & Wilkins al igual que otras marcas reputadas dentro del sector tienen muy difícil competir de tú a tú con los gigantes como Sony o Bose, los 5 auriculares (5 si contamos los 1000XM4) de estas marcas tienen la mejor cancelación de ruido de cuantos he probado, están un escalón por encima del resto. Eso quiere decir que la cancelación de estos PX7 es mala? Ni mucho menos, cancelan una gran cantidad de sonido, colocándose en el top 10 de los mejores auriculares con cancelación de ruido, diría que se sitúan a la par de los Jabra y H8i, ya que para mi los Surface tienen peor cancelación que el resto.
    ✅ Muy buena comodidad. Las mejores marcas en este aspecto son Bose y Jabra (Con mención especial a los Sony WH1000XM4), pero los PX7 no se quedan atrás, también dan esa comodidad que te permite aguantar horas y horas con ellos puestos. La banda superior es bastante cómoda, reparte bien el peso y las almohadillas de las orejas tienen suficiente espacio, posicionándose los drivers de forma oblicua para que nada toque nuestras orejas. En cuanto a si se calientan mucho, es cierto que he notado que se calientan un poco, pero en pleno verano y tras varias horas, así que no es algo que me preocupe mucho. He oído que a algunas personas les molesta porque tienen bastante fuerza de pinza o clamping, pero no ha sido mi caso. Lo único que he notado es que tras muchas horas tenía dolorida la coronilla, pero eso me pasa con casi cualquier auricular.
    ✅ Muy buenos controles de botón. Este auricular a diferencia de Bose o Sony usa botones y no panel táctil. A mi personalmente me da igual usar uno u otro mientras que funcionen bien, y este es el caso. Tiene 3 botones para pausar/reanudar la música con un toque en el botón central (Con dos y tres toques cambias de pista), y los otros botones para subir o bajar la música. A su vez tiene un botón en el otro auricular para cambiar el tipo de cancelación de ruido (Entre alta, baja, automático y desactivado). Personalmente me gusta mucho lo fácil de detectar que son los botones, el botón central tiene más relieve que los otros y es super fácil saber qué botón estás pulsando.
    ✅ Calidad de sonido espectacular. La ecualización de estos auriculares es para un público muy específico, tiene un claro perfil en U, muy parecido al que encontramos en los auriculares Sony, con graves potentes y agudos muy detallados para dar mucho contraste y riqueza, los medios y medios altos mantienen el nivel, ya que me ha parecido que los vocales se escuchan bastante bien. Además su escena es maravillosa para un auricular de estas características, tiene un espaciado entre instrumentos muy bueno. Diría que está entre los mejores auriculares en calidad de sonido, aunque su ecualización creo que lo hace para un público más general y no tanto para los más audiófilos. Como ya he dicho, los Sony son muy parecidos pero con peor escena. Los Bose controlan mejor los graves, pero decaen con los agudos. Los Beoplay son muy parecidos a los Bose, con mejores agudos, pero peor escena. Y los que más gustarán a un audiófilo son los Jabra, ya que tienen un perfil más plano con agudos muy brillantes y sin abusar de los graves como el resto.
    ✅ Buena batería de 24 horas. Suelo poner el mínimo de batería aceptable en 20 horas, así que estos PX7 con 1 día de duración me parecen bastante buenos. Los mejores en este aspecto son los Jabra con 36 horas, les siguen los Sony y Beoplay con 30 horas y por debajo están los Bose con 20 y los Surface con 15.
    ✅ Nuevos materiales de alta calidad. La verdad es que los materiales de estos auriculares me encantan, así como su diseño. Está fabricado en fibra de carbono, piel y acero, las almohadillas tienen un tacto nada sintético y los cosidos se notan de muy buena calidad. En este aspecto es de los mejores auriculares que tengo.
    ✅ Las almohadillas hacen un giro de prácticamente 180 grados. Esto me ha encantado, ya que puedes ponerte los auriculares sobre los hombros con los drivers hacia abajo para protegerlos y cuando te los quitas y los dejas en la mesa con un simple giro de muñeca hacia afuera los colocas en la mesa sin perder tiempo. Creo que todos los auriculares de estas características deberían tener 180 grados en lugar de 90, es mucho más cómodo.
    ✅ Cuando los colocas sobre los hombros no te aprietan el cuello. Da igual en qué posición los pongas, no te van a apretar el cuello porque son unos auriculares bastante abiertos y no molestan en nada cuando los dejamos reposando sobre los hombros.
    ✅ Modo de escucha sin quitarte los auriculares (modo transparencia). Este modo lo tienen todos los auriculares comentados previamente, excepto los Bose QC 35. Personalmente los que más me gustan son los de los Bose 700, los Beoplay H8i y los de estos PX7, ya que son muy fáciles de activar, sobretodo el de los H8i que solo debes pulsar un botón (Los PX7 y los 700 debes mantener pulsado el botón de la cancelación de ruido durante 1 segundo). Al hacer esto se para la música y puedes hablar con la persona lo que necesites hasta que vuelvas a pulsar el botón. En los Sony, debes mantener una mano sobre el panel táctil y no te permite tener las dos manos libres, excepto en la última versión, los 1000XM4 que tiene la función “speak to chat”, con la que hablas y la función se activa automáticamente el tiempo que quieras. Esta última es la función que más me gusta de todas, aunque aún tienen que pulirla un poco.
    ✅ Cargador Tipo-C. Esto es algo que deben tener todos los auriculares de gama alta a día de hoy, así que obviamente lo pongo en ventajas.
    ✅ Gran potencia sonora al 50% de volumen. Muchos auriculares con ANC les falta pontencia sonora y debes subirlos al 70% o más para poder oírlos a un volumen medio, no es el caso de estos PX7. Los mejores en este aspecto han sido siempre los Sony, los cuales daban una gran potencia sonora, obligándome incluso a veces a poner el volumen a menos del 50%. Pues estos PX7 igualan sobradamente a los Sony y son los únicos de toda la lista que lo consiguen. Esto ayuda además a que la batería dure más al no subir demasiado el volumen.
    ✅ Se encienden con un botón deslizante o “slider”. Esto es algo que personalmente me gusta mucho, ya que no quiero mantener pulsado un botón para encender o apagar, ya que en muchas ocasiones si no tienes los auriculares puestos no sabes si los has encendido o los has apagado bien. Con este tipo de botón es super sencillo, sabes perfectamente cómo se encuentra el auricular sin necesidad de tenerlos puesto y es rápido. Los Bose QC35 también tienen este tipo de botón. Los Bose 700 y los Surface Headphones se encienden y apagan pulsando una vez en el botón de encendido, no hace falta mantenerlo pulsado. Y los Jabra son peculiares, ya que se encienden y apagan con el giro de los drivers. En el resto tienes que mantener pulsado el botón.
    ✅ Actualización que ha mejorado la calidad de la app y de los auriculares considerablemente. La verdad es que la app me gusta, es limpia, conecta enseguida y tiene lo necesario para activar todas las funciones de los auriculares desde esta. Además con la última actualización, la 1.1 han añadido ciertas mejoras que me han gustado. Como por ejemplo cuando lo conectas a android o windows, desde las opciones de bluetooth te dice la batería restante exacta, no de 10 en 10 como antes. Otra mejora es que la activación del modo “transparencia” antes se activaba manteniendo pulsado el botón del ANC durante 3 segundos, y han disminuido ese tiempo a 1 segundo. Quien sabe si en el futuro añadirán nuevas mejoras, pero me gustan los actuales cambios.
    ✅ Tienen tecnología multipunto, para conectar a dos dispositivos a la vez. Los únicos auriculares de la lista que no lo tienen son los Sony (Sin contar la última versión los 1000XM4 que ya lo incorpora). Creo que no funciona mal el multipunto en estos PX7 pero podría ser algo mejor, hasta ahora de las que he usado la versión más estable y que más me ha gustado es la de los Sony 1000XM4, los Beoplay H8i y los Bose QC35. Pese a todo lo incluyo en ventajas porque no he tenido problema alguno, simplemente es cuestión de gustos a la hora de cómo se gestionan los dispositivos.
    ✅ Tienen códec de audio SBC, APTX, AAC, y APTX HD. En cuanto a esto me gusta mucho que tenga tanta variedad de códec para poder conectarlo con AAC a un iphone, o con APTX o APTX HD a otros dispositivos compatibles. Es decir que estos PX7 creo que personalmente son de los mejores en este aspecto junto a las tres primeras versiones de Sony. EL resto flojea en algún aspecto, como los Jabra y los Surface, que solo tienen SBC, los Bose que solo tienen AAC o los Sony 1000XM4 que aunque incluyen LDAC, pierden APTX y APTX HD que sí incluían las versiones anteriores.
    ✅ Incluye una funda rígida de transporte de muy buena calidad. Esto me ha parecido un buen aporte, ya que los anteriores B&W PX (La versión anterior, y que no recomiendo), no incluían esta funda. Debéis tener en cuenta que los PX5 no traen esta funda rígida. Del resto de auriculares, los únicos que no traen funda rígida son los Beoplay H8i.
    ✅ Tienen sensores que paran la música cuando te los quitas en ambos drivers y funciona de escándalo. Estos sensores de B&W me han parecido exquisitos. Son tan buenos que incluso en la versión inferior, los PX5 (siendo unos auriculares supraurales, que suelen dar muchos problemas con este tipo de sensores como le pasaba a los H8i), funcionan de maravilla y detectan perfectamente cuando te los pones y cuando te los quitas. Es una pasada lo bien que funciona, y personalmente creo que los únicos que se le parecen son los Jabra, que también tienen dos sensores para cada oreja.
    ✅ Buena carga rápida de 5 horas de uso en 15 minutos de carga. No son los mejores en este aspecto ya que los Sony dan las mismas 5 horas en 10 minutos de carga, pero creo que no están nada mal, viendo que por ejemplo otros de la lista dan 2 o 3 horas como mucho.
    ✅ Puedes escuchar música a través del cable Tipo-C. Es decir que además de cargarse podrás escuchar música ya sea a través del bluetooth, del jack de 3’5 o del cable Tipo-C. Eso sí, el gran problema es que para que funcione cualquiera de estos modos debes tener el auricular encendido.
    ✅ Muy buen micrófono. Quizá no sean los mejores que he probado de la lista aquí mencionada, creo que los Jabra y los Bose 700 tienen mejor micrófono, pero funcionan bastante bien en ambientes ruidosos y la voz se oye sin problemas. Su única pega es que se oye un poco amortiguada, pero lo pondría entre los 5 mejores en este aspecto.

    ❌ Control de la cancelación de ruido pobre en comparación a la competencia. Sólo puedes cambiar la cancelación de ruido entre alta, baja, auto y apagado. Otros auriculares como los de Sony, Bose o Surface te permite regular la cancelación de ruido totalmente desde sus aplicaciones o el propio auricular.
    ❌ No hay forma de saber la batería restante desde los auriculares. Esto es algo que hacen algunas marcas como Bose 700 (Te dice las horas restantes de uso), Sony versión 3 y 4 (Te dice el porcentaje de batería restante de 10 en 10), o Jabra (Te dice si la batería es alta, media o baja).
    ❌ Son pesados. Suelo poner el límite de unos auriculares pesados en 275 gramos, estos se van a los 305 gramos, por lo que tengo que ponerlo en desventajas. Eso sí, el peso no siempre influye en la comodidad del auricular, es solo algo a tener en cuenta.
    ❌ No son plegables. Esto tampoco pueden hacerlo los Bose 700, los Beoplay H8i y los Surface Headphones. Creo que es algo importante sobre todo a la hora de llevar los auriculares de viaje.
    ❌ Abultan bastante sobre la cabeza y no pasan fácilmente desapercibidos. Si sois de los que os gusta que os miren los auriculares por la calle, estos son perfectos, pero en mi caso es algo que no me gusta, prefiero que sean discretos y que no parezca que llevo puesto un casco de obra. En mi opinión los mejores en este aspecto son los Bose QC35.
    ❌ No tienen un botón dedicado para el asistente personal. A diferencia de la mayoría de auriculares de la lista, estos PX7 no tienen un botón dedicado para llamar al asistente personal.
    ❌ No puedes usar los auriculares con la batería agotada mediante jack de 3’5. Como he mencionado antes, para que el auricular funcione ya sea por bluetooth o con cable, debe estar encendido. Así que si se agota la batería sólo podrás usar el cable Tipo-C para cargarlo a la vez que los usas.

    En definitiva, los recomiendo? Por supuesto que sí 👍
    Me han encantado en prácticamente todos los aspectos, las desventajas acaban por ser minucias si juntas todo lo bueno que tiene este auricular. Creo que B&W lo ha hecho realmente bien, y que además mejoren aún más el auricular con las actualizaciones a mi personalmente me encanta (No puedo decir lo mismo de Bose). Quizá su única pega es que es un poco caro en comparación a otros de esta lista, pero en ciertas fechas he llegado a verlos por menos de 300 euros. También los tienes de segunda mano por menos de 250 euros. Creo que tienen todas las funciones que necesito en unos auriculares, quizá no sean los mejores en cancelación de ruido, pero lo compensan con su exquisita calidad de sonido. Si buscáis lo mejor calidad-precio yo me iría a por los Jabra, si buscáis la mejor cancelación de ruido, los Sony o Bose son tu mejor elección (Personalmente creo que los Sony 1000XM4 son superiores a los Bose 700), y para todo lo demás, sobretodo si buscas la mejor calidad de sonido, no os importa gastar un poco más y el ANC no es vuestra prioridad, esta es la mejor elección.

    Nota calidad-precio: 9

    Espero que este análisis os haya servido.
