Ratings and Reviews
These phones are very good, similar to the P5s in sound quality, though not quite as good the P7.
Everything works well except ... I wish the designers had noticed that if you lie down, they have a marked tendency to fall off, (something that is not a problem with the P5 or P7). Maybe this is difficult to design as they weigh half as much again as the P5s, but it would be good if the next model found a way round this ... Even if you bend to pick up something, or just lean back, they tend to start falling off, which means they can't fully meet the expectations of a cordless phone.
But otherwise they are excellent, though they should highlight the tiny hard reset/restore button inside the right side of the phones (for details, download the full user manual). I had the same problem as another reviewer in that the phones just seemed to suddenly die, but the reset button immediately brought them back to life.
Update: ended up with a different pair of these which have a stiffer headband which means that, with adjustment, they don’t so easily fall off your head (at least, for the moment).
What’s more, maybe it’s due to a software update, but the Bluetooth connectivity is now wonderful, nearly always instant. Very good and easy to use. Only remaining niggle is that this app can occasionally be a little bit slow to load.
Overall great start, needed app for amazing headphones
An App exclusive to the PX headphones. Now as the headphones are concerned, the Bowers & Wilkins PX has just won What HiFi award of best wireless headphone £300+ and also product of the year 👀
The superior sound quality is why I love them. And when I got my hands on a pair I noticed the many other practical/ convenient features it includes.
- wear sensors ( on/battery saving/play/pause)
- different modes of noise. Cancellation.
- angled drivers from the P9!
Overall, the app features:
-change Bluetooth name (handy)
- noise cancelling EQ (three preset modes)
- sensitivity adjustment for wear sensors.
As a first for the company, you can expect it being difficult to get it right all first time. I would say it's 9/10 spot on with a little teething problems which as bowers & Wilkins I think they would resolve to make it perfect, that's why I would still give it 5 stars as I know the company behind it are very vigilant and they are one of the best in the market.
After writing the above I really feel I should do reviews often 😂

Nice app but too slow
The app is well designed but it’s too slow to open. Even with the px right next to the phone it seems to take an age to pair and if you switch between apps it always has to re-pair.
The whole px experience would be better if the environment switch on the headphones cycled between option (office, city, flight) rather than just on and off as I find myself wanting to switch between these often but having to go through a frustratingly slow process to do it.
Terrific headphones though - they’re far better than the competition in sound quality, design and ease of use. Even on comfort (which I sometimes see criticised) they’re fine if you give them a couple of weeks to break the ear pads in.
