These headphones look great, but the sound is not so great.
16 August 2013
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!
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?
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.
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.
Summary: Good while they lasted, had these for just over two years which is their warranty period then right ear piece stopped working, cost for repair £75 at B & W which is nearly 50% of new product, B & W pride their selves on delivering high end products, so you would expect them to last for a lot longer...
Summary: I impulse bought these headphones while waiting at an airport last year. While the audio is great, I found that they weren't that comfortable for long periods of time (trans-Atlantic flight), and the noise isolation wasn't all that great. Worse, the right headphone has now broken.
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.
