B&W's P5 headphones get a smaller sibling in the P3

Good Gear Guide.au
23 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Bowers & Wilkins’ P5 headphones made waves on release for their perfectly modern-yet-classic styling, excellent sound quality, and exacting build quality. The Bowers & Wilkins P3 is a cut-down version of the P5 — smaller, using fabric padding instead of leather, and with a folding headband.
  • Pros: Excellent overall sound, Good bass response, Excellent build quality and design
  • Cons: Treble is slightly overshadowed, Can leak sound at high volumes

B&W P3 review

1 July 2012
  • Summary: Brighton-based soundmeisters Bowers & Wilkins’ first pair of cans, the P5s, were as popular as they were excellent, but B&W hasn’t rested on its laurels. Not only are the new P3 on-ears more advanced and more portable, they’re also more affordable. I don’t remember a pair of cans as stylish as these; they’re glamourous without being gauche, and while they look delicate they’re surprisingly strong.

Bowers & Wilkins P3 headphones review

Pocket Lint

  • Excerpt: Bowers and Wilkins has a strong reputation when it comes to audio. The company’s speaker systems are enviable (and expensive) and have impressed audiophiles for an age.
  • Pros: Elegant, comfortable, carry case included, good and neutral sound
  • Cons: Sound spreads to those around you at mid-high volumes, neutral sound may not suit all genres or tastes, pricey, could do with some more top end "sparkle"

  • Conclusion: Bowers & Wilkins zet een bijzonder goede hoofdtelefoon in de markt met de P3. De concurrentie kan het zwaar krijgen. Voor 199 euro haalt u een erg sterke allrounder in huis. Een allrounder met een mild, vergevingsgezind karakter. Zonder detail, drive of energie te verliezen. Persoonlijk mag het hoog iets meer open zijn, maar nogmaals: dat is een kwestie van smaak. Gezien de prijs, afwerking en prestaties is dit gewoon een bijzonder goed product.
