Good sound, but flawed design

These headphones look great, but the sound is not so great.

  • Summary: I have returned these because of their sound. They are definitely muffled & muddy compared to a pair of Koss that cost a fraction of the price. They are moderate in the level of comfort. I ended up with a pair of Sennheiser Amperiors that sound great!
  • Pros: Looks & build quality
  • Cons: Sound

sacrificing comfort for sound

  • Summary: torn up that i had to return my P3s after less than a week. but the great sound quality just couldn't hold its own against the pressure the tight, rough pads put on my big dumb ears. so if you're looking for comfort, especially if you wear glasses, look elsewhere (perhaps a nice leather pair?) EDIT: as a quick addendum: i returned the P3s and bought a pair of AKG 451s instead. the new headphones are far more suited to my head i.e.

Returned them.

  • Summary: I'll start by saying I'm a B&W fan, I have thousands of pounds worth of B&W speakers at home so I was really looking forward to getting the P3's. The quality is outstanding and I found them really comfortable. I burned them in for over thirty hours to begin with. I'm using a Galaxy S3 and an ipod classic as sources. I know B&W products are smooth and warm sounding but the top end roll off was just too much for my tastes.

So uncomfortable

  • Summary: First of all i'd just like to say the sound quality is amazing and probably the best sound performance from any set of headphones ive ever owned and i make music so i've owned a lot. The massive downside as others have said is that they crush your head. I need to wear mine for hours at a time every single day and they completely destroy your ears, they are that bad you have to take them off and give your ears some air.

Such a disapointment.

Felix McCabe, Amazon

  • Summary: Although they look great, are portable and made from nice materials.. the ear pads ruin the sound. The clarity is lost, making the bass muddy. Don't buy these, they're not worth the price tag. I have opted instead for the Bose AE2s. Crystal clear sound, decent balanced bass, and more comfort than you could imagine. I can wear them all day without feeling a thing.

Bowers & Wilkins P3 Headphones - Try Before You Buy!

  • Excerpt: "I felt compelled to write a review of these headphones so that buyers could get a different viewpoint before spending a lot of money; particularly as they seem to be getting rave reviews in the Hi-Fi and Audio press. I purchased the headphones on line and after having listened to them at home I would have to say I am hugely disappointed in the sound quality. Yes they are very well made and attractive to wear, but for the price they cost you also want ...
  • Pros: Stylish, Well made .
  • Cons: Poor Sound and Fit .  Expensive .
