If you’re looking for an excellent deal on one of the best noise-canceling headphones, then your search should stop right here. The Bowers & Wilkins PX Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones have best in class sound, with better sound than Sony or Bose noise-canceling headphones, and that’s why I own a pair.
While the latest Sony and Bose models have slightly better noise cancellation than the Bowers & Wilkins, the PX’s ANC is still excellent (I would say 90% as effective compared to the other two) plus they have a wide-open detailed sound (with the aptX HD high-resolution wireless codec) that the other two brands cannot touch. If you put sound quality at the top of your list as I do, then the PX is the headphone you should buy. And I’m not the only one saying it…
The Bowers & Wilkins PX Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones are currently selling new for $300 (which is also a good price by the way). However, now for a limited time, you can get an even better deal on the (Amazon Renewed) model for only $189! The “Amazon Renewed” products work and look like new. They are pre-owned products that have been inspected and tested by Amazon-qualified suppliers and come with the 90-day Amazon Renewed Guarantee. This is an absolute steal, so grab them quick before they go back up to their regular price of $230!
Please note the PX was recently replaced by the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 Over-Ear Wireless Bluetooth Headphone, which has slight improvements in noise-canceling performance and sound over the PX. They are also on sale for $347, which is about $50 off the list price.
