The Px7 S2 wireless headphones get four microphones. Two microphones analyse the sound output, while the other two check for ambient noises. Moreover, the brand has changed the microphone positions from its predecessor, tuned the DSP to perform better in noisy surroundings, and reworked the noise-cancelling algorithm to deliver an enhanced ANC performance. It also gets a transparency mode that can be activated via the brand’s Music App. Also, you can access the ANC settings and adjust the EQ from this app.
The headphones get a customisable physical button on the left earcup that gives you access to noise cancellation settings or voice assistance. The other physical buttons to perform various functions such as power on/off, volume, track controls, and calls are embedded in the right earcup. The Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2 is reported to offer up to 30 hours of playtime on a single charge. It gets an improved fast-charging tech that provides up to seven hours of playback with just 15 minutes of charging.
