To anyone acquainted with B&W’s line of on- and over-ear headphones, the PXs will look familiar. But while they share some of their DNA, they’re also quite distinct in their own right.
The Space Grey finish of our review sample may look like an attempt to appeal to Apple fans, but it also highlights the PXs’ more industrial design.
That’s not to say the headphones don’t have shelf-appeal, but the optional (and much more flamboyant) Soft Gold finish shows off your PXs better.
The headphones are constructed predominantly from lightweight aluminium and use what B&W refers to as “ballistic nylon shell” to cover the outer earpads and the top of the headband.
This means the PXs feel both reassuringly solid yet perfectly portable.
