[test] Casque B&W P3 : comme une paire de charentaises

14 January 2015
  • Summary: Alors, que conclure sur ce casque? Sûrement que c’est celui qui ravira le plus de monde pour son confort, son côté pratique (pliable) et sa télécommande 3 boutons (cette pique est dédiée à Philips)… Les puristes du son lui reprocheront un rendu trop typé, manquant de finesse sur les médiums et un...
  • Pros: + Ultra confortable, + Pliable, + Boitier de transport fourni, + Câble supplémentaire sans télécommande fourni
  • Cons: - Rendu sonore inférieur à ses principaux concurrents, - Câble en Y, - Câble de mauvaise qualité qui fait des noeuds, - Boitier de transport rigide et trop gros

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.

  • Summary: A friend of mine has these, he received them as a gift from someone who purchased them for 200 dollars without any proper research first, which was probably a big mistake on their part.
  • Pros: Very comfortable, great bass I suppose if you're a hardcore basshead
  • Cons: Bloated, muffled sounding, flimsy build

  • Summary: Hi all, I thought I would share my first impressions and experience with this headphone. :) I will only concentrate on the sound part, since everyone knows how well built and comfortable they are (or can be... for me they are really comfortable).
  • Pros: Punchy bass, good soundstage and 3D imaging, lovely vocals
  • Cons: Can seem muddy if your expectations are too high.... slightly recessed treble, price..

Bowers & Wilkins P3

PC Magazine
22 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The Bowers & Wilkins P3 headphones pair a refined bass response with a focus on mid-frequency content for a very positive sonic result.
  • Pros: Excellent audio performance with pleasantly resonant bass response. Does not distort on deep bass at high volumes. Very comfortable. Folds into compact shape. Built-in iPhone controls.
  • Cons: Leaks sound at higher volumes?people nearby can hear. A slightly less-crisp response than some listeners may prefer.

Review: Bowers & Wilkins P3 Headphones

19 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Two years ago, Bowers & Wilkins debuted its P5 headphones , some of the best-sounding compact headphones we’d ever heard. B&W’s design for the P5s coupled a minimalist and luxurious aesthetic — complete with supple memory-foam ear pads swathed in black New Zealand sheep leather — with truly stunning...
  • 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.

The Gadgeteer
22 August 2012
  • Conclusion: The P3 headphones are a big step up for people on the move. Their warmth, detail and comfort are first-rate. I would recommend leaving them in your carry-all once you get to your destination, though.
  • Pros: Tuned just right for commuting, Very well built, Classy, Affordable (for B&W), Very comfortable, Foldable, Strong, protective case, Replaceable cable
  • Cons: Too bassy and muffled sounding for quiet environments
