Two years ago, Bowers&Wilkins made a near-perfect pair of wireless, noise-cancelling, over-the-ear headphones, the B&W PX. They sounded great and had amazing noise cancellation, but they weren't the comfiest headphones around. 

Now, the company has revamped its entire wireless headphones lineup, and on top sits PX's successor: the B&W PX7. The new headphones appear to address the main pain point of the PX, with a lighter, carbon fiber-enhanced design, and have increased battery life and improved sound. 

All of this is according to Bowers&Wilkins; I haven't yet tried the PX7 out so I can't confirm it. But the new headphones sound great on paper. They've got 43mm drivers which bring an "immersive soundstage" and the "most complete noise reduction." They also offer up to 30 hours of battery life (with active noise cancellation, or ANC, turned on) and quick charging. Like their predecessors, they come with neat tricks like proximity sensors that detect when you lift them off your ears and automatically pause music.  Read more...
