B&W’s upgraded noise-cancelling headphones are here to take on the Sony WH-1000XM5

Bowers & Wilkins’ Px7 S2 are great-sounding headphones, as we said in our full Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2 review, and the firm has just upgraded them for 2023. The new Px7 S2e have a significantly upgraded digital signal processing and some new style options to choose from.

The DSP is the main attraction here. The signal processor delivers 24-bit audio from compatible streaming services and has been retuned “to deliver unmatched detail, dynamics and spaciousness”. It’ll be interesting to hear that, because with the Px7 S2 we felt that the headphones were aiming to be fun and exciting, precise and analytical all at once, and didn’t quite pull it off – which is a bit of an issue when the price is as premium as this. The new DSP will hopefully make them more versatile, and add that extra finesse. There’s also aptX Adaptive for high-end streaming to take advantage of that DSP, plus USB-C and 3.5mm connections to cover all your key music sources.
