Bowers & Wilkins P3 Headphones Review: The Little Headphones with Big Cojones

Chip Chick
13 October 2012
  • Summary: The P3 headphones are exactly what we would expect from Bowers & Wilkins. They are small, light weight, and extremely comfy. Unfortunately, for those that have bigger ears – these may not be for you, as the ear cups are definitely on the smaller side of the scale.
  • Pros: Excellent craftsmanship, lightweight and comfortable fit, easily portable, offers a well-rounded listening experience that does Bowers & Wilkins justice and the blue P3 headphones really stand out.
  • Cons: The included cable is a bit on the thin side, the carrying case is impressive but a bit overwhelming, we would have liked a smidgen of more bass, and  some may think the ear cups are too small.

Review: Bowers & Wilkins P3 Headphones

Wired
19 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Two years ago, Bowers & Wilkins debuted its P5 headphones , some of the best-sounding compact headphones we’d ever heard.

  • Pros: Great sound quality, as expected from the Brit audio powerhouse. 30-millimeter mylar drivers handle mids and lows with gusto. Cables snake under the earpads, protecting the connection jack. Earpads and cables are user-replaceable. Folding design makes them great for travel. Available in black or ...
  • Cons: Light on high-end detail — you’ll have to fiddle with your EQ. Ambient noise isolation is lacking. Stowing them away inside the plastic case takes patience and practice. Cheap, thin cable.
