A quick glance at our PX7 review’s sub-heading tells the story in a nutshell: “hugely impressive noise-cancelling headphones”.
The PX7s launched in September 2019 as the first aptX Adaptive headphones, meaning they support the next-gen Qualcomm Bluetooth technology that combines the 24-bit/48kHz capability of aptX HD with the benefits of aptX Low Latency such as improved synchronicity of audio and video content between your source and headphones.
The other headline feature is noise-cancelling. Here, pressing the button on the headphones’ left cup allows you to cycle through modes ‘low’, ‘medium’ and ‘high’. ‘Low’ is fine for keeping office chatter and background noise out, while ‘high’ effectively cocoons you in silence, even during the noisiest real-life scenarios.
Want to hear a plane announcement or dip into a conversation quickly without having to take the headphones off? Pressing and holding the noise cancellation button for two seconds will initiate an ambient mode.
Not only are the PX7 insightful, but their sonic character also prioritises entertainment. If that sounds like something you need in your life right now, this Boxing Day headphones deal could be right up your street.
