Can Bowers & Wilkins’ new headphones challenge the AirPods Max?

Bowers & Wilkins has just announced, through a press release, a brand new pair of headphones. They are the Px7 S2 which will be available starting today.

A price tag of €429, active noise cancellation and a stylish design. At first glance, the new Px7 S2 from Bowers & Wilkins is directly comparable to Apple’s AirPods Max. We have not yet been able to test the headphones in practice, but the specifications and photos speak volumes. This could just be a very interesting battle.

So the new headphones from Bowers & Wilkins feature active noise cancellation. Using six enhanced microphones, ambient noise is kept out as much as possible. Two of these microphones measure the output of the drivers, two react to ambient noise and two ensure better intelligibility. An, on paper, excellent setup that the AirPods Max manages to match.

Furthermore, the Px7 S2 features a nice battery that can give users 30 hours in tow. The sound quality is fully customizable via the Bowers & Wilkins app, the headphones are made of premium materials and the sound is driven by new drivers with high quality sound.

AirPods Max challenged?

Yes, the new Px7 S2 from Bowers & Wilkins is immediately reminiscent of the AirPods Max. Despite the €200 price difference, at first glance the headphones seem to be a match. Still, I don’t think this is the model that can challenge the Max to the max. That title will go to another model later this year.

In today’s press release, Bowers & Wilkins let it be known that the Px8, the company’s absolute flagship model, will appear later this year. Those headphones will appear with a price tag of €599 and will be able to offer consumers the maximum in every area.

Is it interesting to see how well the Px7 S2 performs? Yes, it certainly is. Will it be the all-time great challenger to the AirPods Max? The ultimate battle is expected to take place later this year. Something I am really looking forward to.
