Summary: If you are familiar with the Bowers-Wilkins sound, you will probably like these headphones. Strong, clear midrange and dialogue, bass you can hear but not necessarily feel. Stellar build quality, looks really cool. No frills operation and highly portable.
Pros: Signature Bowers-Wilkins sound
Look and feel high quality
Small and easy to take with you
Summary: These are the best PORTABLE headphones I have yet heard. By portable I mean that they are reasonably easy to fold an carry about. They are dynamic, yet a little soft on the high end. They are very comfortable, and they are not at all fatiguing.
Summary: Very comfortable and great sound. I use them on a plane quite a bit and thought I would not miss noise reduction, but I do. Case is nice but wish there was a better way to put up the cable as it often get pinched when I close the case.
Summary: I like the P3s over the P5s, but didn't find it to be significantly better than other headphones more affordable than these. Given the opportunity to do it over again, I would've gone with Harman Kardon's entry level offering. Still, it's a good product.
Summary: The b&w P3s delivered exactly what I needed:
1. portability 2. light weight 3. quality sound 4. comfort
I have used these with a laptop, samsung tablet, and denon receiver. The volume level and quality were great on all devices when watching movies/tv with an AC3 audio track.
