Based on B&W's flagship wireless headphones "Px8", with a galvanic gray finish as the base tone, papaya orange, born from the early racing cars of McLaren Automotive founder Bruce McLaren, is used as an accent color adopted as the color of every part and connecting cable. The design symbolizes the partnership between the two companies. The carrying case is engraved with the McLaren logo.

It supports wired connection with 3.5mm stereo mini.
In addition, since this model is a special specification product, in the event of a non-repairable part failure, it can be replaced with normal versions of Px8 parts and main parts. There is a dedicated replacement part for the ear pads, but this will be replaced with the regular version of the Px8 ear pads as soon as the stock runs out.
