Great sounding headphones, and very comfortable after being worn in. Bought these around six months ago, and despite having a separates system i’d deliberated over for quite a while to get quality kit i’d only ever used sony mdr-ed21lp headphones before. The improvement in sound quality is monumental. The sound is so much crisper and warmer. Unfortunately there have however been two downsides to them. The first, when i first got them after about 30 minutes wear i noticed my head felt like it’d been in a clamp. Easy way to sort this is take the memory phone covers off and then leave them stretched over the box for a couple of nights when your not using them. Soon stops your head from feeling like they’ve been in a clamp and they’re very comfy headphones after thatthe second, and very disappointing for a piece of kit from a manufacturer like b&w, one of the earphones fell off at the point the metal connects to the headband. Luckily for me this was about 5 and a half months from purchase, so amazon replaced them free of charge. Hopefully this won’t happen to my second pair.

Wasn’t sure if i loved them before – now i definitely do. These headphones look so cool, i wanted to love them. And to a large extent, i do. The sound isn’t perfect – it is quite dark and bass heavy, and there isn’t much of a treble. But it is a very smooth sound, with good amounts of detail, and i enjoy listening to music on them, which is what it comes down to in the end. They are also very portable, folding up neatly and fitting into a small hard clamshell case. My main problem with them however, is the fit – they tend to fall forward off my ears if i move my head forwards, which can be quite annoying, given these are portable headphones, designed to be worn while moving about. The headband is quite thin and starts to hurt the top of my head after a couple of hours, and when wearing my glasses, they do start to pinch. But i am happy to overlook these problems because of how great they look. That may make them sound like a bit of extravagance, and perhaps they are as i tend to listen to my sennheiser momentums more often, but i still love them.

Bowers & Wilkins P3 On-Ear Headphones B&W – Black

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • P3’s drive units have been designed from the ground up to give the best possible sound from a small set of headphones
  • The headphones can be folded to slip easily into a jacket pocket, or for storage in their own specially designed hard-shell carry case
  • Bowers & Wilkins headphones are designed to reveal the true sound of your music, bringing you as close as possible to the sound the artists and studio engineers wanted you to hear
  • Bespoke fabric covering the pads provides acoustic transparency in the centre, while forming a perfect seal around the edge for better bass and noise isolation. The pads are made from heat-sensitive memory foam that moulds to the shape of your ears, becoming more comfortable and enhancing sound quality over time
  • P3’s cable comes with a remote/microphone attachment, so it works seamlessly with your iPhone. And because the cable is so easy to detach and swap, P3 is also compatible with all other mobile phones and MP3 players

But it keeps hurting my ears a little bit. It’s a pretty nice pair of headphones. Incredible bass response and product design. It would be perfect if it didn’t hurt my ear as i think it is a little bit tight for the size(or whatever) of my head. I don’t have a big head, but probably b&w could make it easier to the customers to adjust the pressure from the headphone by themselves. I need to relax my ears every 20 minutes when i use it. But regardless of that, it’s a perfect headphone.

Look and sound great, but too uncomfortable to wear even for small periods. . Ordered these headphones on the black friday deal at £95, so was really pleased that i’d managed to grab a pair for such a discount price, and really really wanted to like these headphones but they were just so uncomfortable that i couldn’t. They look great and sound great, and would be 5 stars and the perfect headphones if only they were wearable. I tried them on with various music types for a couple of hours overall and could tell within minutes that they were tight on my (relatively small) ears, and dug into the top of my head quite painfully, and after half an hour or so i had to take them off as they were actually hurting my head, not just becoming uncomfortable. I am often on long journeys, and so comfort is a big factor in a pair of headphones for me, and was looking to get some new ones as my current klipsch image one ii were uncomfortable after an hour or so and i’d have to take them off for a while. Unfortunately, the p3s weren’t a viable replacement for me, despite their good looks and great sound. Returned to amazon for a refund instead.

I’ve had a pair of these since they first launched. They have come down in price since then but i don’t regret buying them. They’ve given me years of great listening and i’m only retiring them as i’m buying a pair of the p7s. The sound is very well balanced. B&w aim to reproduce the original acoustics in a recording as possible so they don’t have the kind of fake enhancement you get on some other brands – which is usually to compensate for poor drivers. The separation on the p3s is superb and the bass natural. Aside from the sound the build quality is great. They’re really tough and i’ve thrown them in and out of my bag daily. Also they’re designed so individual parts such as the leads of the pads can be easily replaced – which i needed to do a few months ago as i acidentally broke one one of the leads.

Bowers & Wilkins P3 On-Ear Headphones B&W – Black : You will hear sounds in the music that you have never heard before, even with songs you know. They are brilliant so buy them and currently cheap due to new model out now.

Probably the best headphones i have heard, great soundscape for a relatively small pair of travel headphones, mine were from amazon warehouse so i got a superb price & packaging was all intact & in excellent condition. They look good ,made with quality materialsthe thing that makes these stand out is the overall sound in the mid range, many headphones have clarity on higher frequencies with reasonable bass. These have it all across, instruments stand out in recordings & they sound very natural. I followed some advice & played them at half level for a couple of hours just plugged in with out listening, whether tha makes a difference i don’t know but im really impressed with them, comes with a spare cable & cute carry case.

Which is good for portability. My fist impressions of these headphones are. That they are very well made, also a lot smaller than i expected. Which is good for portability. They are comfortable too, and can go quite loud on my apple ipod video 80gb the best ipod ever made btw (with no volume limiter). That they can slide of your head too easy, but if you have them on correctly they will stay put, as long as you don’t go head banging you wont have a problem. The headphones come with a nice plastic hard case for storage also, which is nice. With these headphones i can hear lots of detail that was lost with other cheap headphones, detail that i cant even hear on my hifi system. A very good product from b&w and at £80.

Excellent set of headphones. Really high quality construction. I have sennheiser hd595’s that are high end. The p3’s are as good sonically. Being on ear they are not quite as comfortable but still are very good. I also have a pair of marshall one ears and they are really painful after about 30 minutes. When i need to replace the 595’s i will consider the p5’s.

Perhaps i am biased because i have only ever had headphones costing around £30 before these. However, i am truly blown away by the quality of the sound on these. I have even found an appreciation for genres that i hated before.

Like many other reviewers have said you need to run them in for a few hours. Lovely rich mids and deep bass with natural highs. These headphones will satisfy the middle of the road people like me and all the others who like that hippity hoppity stuff.
