The model now comes in a Royal Burgundy finish. The new variant joins the existing Tan and Black options. The headphone features a single cast-aluminium arm structure, incorporating the brand’s distinctive design language. The elliptical logo plates are accentuated with diamond-cut bright edges and the earcups, memory-foam cushions, and headband are trimmed with Nappa leather.
Underneath its exterior, the Px8 offers an exceptional audio performance. The headphone is equipped with 40mm Carbon Cone drive units, derived from Bowers & Wilkins’ loudspeakers. These drive units, combined with the brand’s advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP), deliver 24-bit high-resolution sound quality, allowing users to enjoy their favourite music with exceptional clarity.

The acoustic engineering team at Bowers & Wilkins has further fine-tuned its sound tuning for all Px8 models, resulting in improved detail and an enhanced listening experience. The revised acoustic tuning ensures ultra-fast response and minimal distortion across the frequency range. This translates to a natural sound reproduction that brings music to life.
The news of the new Px8 colourway comes just a week after the team at Bowers & Wilkins expanded its line-up of premium wireless headphones with the release of the Px7 S2e. While Px7 S2e shares the same Carbon Cone drive unit and noise cancellation technology as the Px8, their sound quality differs as Px8 offers a more balanced and accurate sound signature, whereas the Px7 S2e emphasises bass for a more immersive listening experience. The Px7 S2e headphones are available in four premium finishes: Anthracite Black, Ocean Blue, Cloud Grey, and Forest Green.

Through the app, users can fine-tune the sound with adjustable EQ, activate or disengage the noise-cancelling transparency mode, and monitor the headphone’s battery life. The app also provides direct music streaming from popular platforms and is compatible with other Bowers & Wilkins products for a unified audio experience.
The Px8 and Px7 S2e headphones are available to purchase on the Bowers & Wilkins website are priced at £599 and £379 respectively
