How good is the ANC in Bowers & Wilkins’ luxe headphones? I wore them at a live gig to find out

Bowers & Wilkins is known for its luxury high-end headphones that look as stunning as they sound – we rate its flagship over-ear offering, the Bowers & Wilkins PX8, as the best headphones for design. The one downside is that they only come in black and tan Nappa leather finishes. Not anymore. 

There’s now a brand new color up for grabs, which B&W is calling a “Royal Burgundy” and for good reason too. It’s a beautiful deep tone, and is complemented by new gold detailing on the single-cast aluminum headband arm, which extends to the outside of the diamond-cut earcups.

Aside from the new finish, the hardware itself of the PX8s is the same, meaning it still has “oodles of detail, agility and expanse on offer, all underpinned by a gloriously weighty bass” that we fell in love with in our Bowers & Wilkins PX8 review. However, the team at Bowers & Wilkins has upgraded the firmware inside of the PX8 range at the same time as releasing this new color.
