Exactly 10 years ago, Bowers & Wilkins began releasing headphones, and now, in honor of this significant date, the company has created a special version of one of the most popular modern models – the PX7. Technically, the anniversary version, called the Carbon Edition, does not differ from the classic – it’s all the same over-ear headphones with rounded-rectangular cups and active noise canceling. However, the cups of this model, as the name implies, are made of composite materials from carbon fibers – and with diamond processing. The company said that thanks to the carbon trim, the appearance of the headphones has become even more luxurious.
There are no other differences, according to the press release. The unique cups contain the usual custom 43.6 mm drivers, developed and tuned by the company’s engineering team, headphones connect to sources via Bluetooth and support the aptX Adaptive codec. The headband and cup brackets of the PX7 Carbon Edition are made of carbon fiber reinforced polymer, just like the classic model.
The memory foam-filled ear cushions are said to provide quality noise isolation. The built-in noise canceling system automatically adjusts to the noise level and also offers a noise reduction function. On a single charge, the model will last up to 30 hours with the included noise reduction.
The start of sales of Bowers & Wilkins PX7 Carbon Edition is scheduled for October, the cost 400$.
