EISA ON-EAR HEADPHONES 2020-2021 Bowers & Wilkins PX5


For its PX5 adaptive noise-cancelling headphones, Bowers & Wilkins pays equal attention to design, ease of use and performance. These are effortlessly stylish, with a spectacular finish blending carbon fibre, aluminium and fabric, while soft cushioned earpads and headband support long listening sessions. Sound quality from the custom-designed 35mm drivers is superb, with a frequency response ranging from deep bass to delicate highs. Both wired and wireless connections are possible, the latter via Bluetooth with support for aptX Adaptive. On-body controls include instant pause by lifting an earcup, and adjustment of the PX5’s high-quality noise-cancelling. If you love music on the go, you’ll love these.
