These things rock. The sound is really good - nice and clear without being fatiguing in anyway. The bass may be lacking a wee bit of depth for some people (or maybe a lot). I mainly listen to metal and classical. Both genres sound pretty darn good through these drivers for me. You won't feel like you're in a concert hall, but you will more than likely appreciate the level of quality you get from these. If you have the PX7 and are considering upgrading to the PX8, you should totally do it! They are just better in every way compared to the PX7. They are heavier (better build quality), but not enough to be problematic. The comfort level is almost as good as Bose NC700, and like the other review mentioned, the ANC is really good too. In my opinion, it's almost as good as the Sony WH-1000XM5 and Bose QuiteComfort Ultra. If you want even better sound and comfort from a bluetooth headphone, the Mark Levinson No. 5909 cans may be worth purchasing. I had a pair, but I returned them because something came loose in the left ear cup. Anyway, Bowers and Wilkins have a pretty good thing going here. I plan on keeping these for a long time.
Pros: - Sound quality - Pretty good level of comfort (I can wear these for hours at a time without a problem) - Battery life is good.
Cons: Nothing worth mentioning considering the price.

This was my first foray into Bowers & Wilkins and man did it not disappoint. I've been a long time Bose fan but wanted to try something different. It was like going from a Mercedes-Benz to a Bentley. Everything on it feels like a premium posh step up from the already premium Bose 700. Being the 007 edition the branding feels subtitle and not in your face. It's very much a prop Bond would wear in his world to listen to secret recording rather than a cheaply branded item. The sound quality is fantastic and top notch. It's a beautiful rich sound that punchy when need be. The noise cancelling is not as perfect as the 700 but it's splitting hairs. It's a shame it won't provide Dolby atmos similar to the air pods. However, without it songs mastered in Dolby still sound better on the PX8 than the AirPods Max funny enough. Overall I'm super happy with them and can only imagine it loosing out on a purchase if you are super in the Apple eco system and nothing else will do, want transparency mode that sounds more natural or really care about Dolby atmos. I have to give it a 9.3/10 I think I have become a bowers and Wilkins customer officially but let's see in ~5 years if I reach for the latest offering or not.
Pros: Amazing style, premium feel, dynamic sound and beats out software gimmicks with pure hardware.
Cons: App is just as annoying as the Bose app, noise canceling looses out a bit to Bose/Sony, pass through is not as perfect as Apple.
