Leave the noise behind and connect on a deeper level
MENLO PARK, Calif., September 20, 2019 - Wireless Headphones can create your own slice of personal, immersed space – whether it’s while you travel, work or play. Yet most headphones either lack the technology knowhow to enable a true “soundstage” listening experience or prioritize being a fashion accessory over sound quality. Now, Bowers & Wilkins’ world-renowned audio engineers unveil their newest line of 2019 headphones, designed from the ground up with the same exacting acoustic standards as our legendary 50-year speakers heritage – in a range of designs to fit your listening needs.
Each pair starts with custom-designed drivers developed specifically for each headphone wearing style, from the 43mm drivers in the top-of-the line Over-Ear PX7, to the exclusive dual hybrid drivers in the sporty In-Ear PI3. “This unique application of our proprietary driver technology, when coupled with the new and cutting edge aptX Adaptive technology from Qualcomm creates the most realistic, high-fidelity soundstage of any headphone on the market, reproducing sound just as it was created in the studio,” says Tim Johnston, SVP & GM of Headphone Business Unit. “We’ve worked extremely hard to create a line of headphones that deliver music the way the artists intended it to be heard.” Bowers & Wilkins headphones will be the first commercially available aptX adaptive sync devices.
Based on the ultra- low power Qualcomm QCC5100 Series Bluetooth Audio SoCs with the all new aptX Adaptive audio technology experience robust, low-latency, high resolution wireless technology at 24/48 streaming quality. The headphones also include ANC that runs at 16 times the sampling rate to ensure the best performance with no degradation to the audio quality.
Here is the new line:
PX7 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation
PX5 Wireless On-Ear Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation
PI3 Wireless In-Ear Headphones
PI4 Wireless In-Ear Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation
