Bowers & Wilkins PX Review: Beautiful sound – after I got a haircut

Bowers and Wilkins’ PX are among the best Bluetooth headphones I’ve tried in recent memory. It’s just weird it took a trip to the barber to get the best sound out of them. The PX are a $ 400 pair of noise cancelling headphones that launched to rave reviews for their classy looks and pristine sound. Unfortunately, my experience out of the box was not quite the same.

Review: The Power of TouchID in a Padlock

The first thing you notice is how heavy duty, and heavy, the padlock is. It’s not cheap, but the company periodically has sales and offers volume discounts. You can also unlock it via Bluetooth and Morse Code, so friends and family members could use it even without registering their fingerprints, although each lock can support up to 500 fingerprints. The battery should last one year and it recharges in two hours using Tapplock’s own proprietary cable. I’ve seen other locks that use a 9-volt battery as a backup power source, so that would have been nice in an emergency.

  • Heavy duty and water resistant
  • Free companion app
  • Volume discounts
  • Bluetooth and Morse Code unlocking options


  • Proprietary charging cable
  • Heavy

Final Verdict

The Tapplock One delivers the power of Touch ID in a padlock form.
