B&W P3

 

Stylish, clever design, Soft, comfortable fit, Warm and inviting sound

Could be a little grippier on your ears, New rivals offer more detail

The P3s are stylish and sonically talented on-ears, but newer rivals now have the edge

B&W P3 review

 

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...

Bowers & Wilkins P3 headphones

 

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. These great-looking, uber comfortable headphones might cost a pretty penny, but...

Elegant, comfortable, carry case included, good and neutral sound

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"

These great-looking, uber comfortable headphones might cost a pretty penny, but they’re more than up to the job where demanding users are concerned. Audio fans can cheer, as can design fans, heck we all can – these are tip-top headphones that are even...

Bowers & Wilkins P3 review

 

The P3 by Bowers & Wilkins are a more affordable pair of headphones than the P5 but still ooze with class and offer good sound quality.

Bowers & Wilkins has delivered an excellent balance of price, design, build quality and sound performance with the P3. For the reasonable price of £169 you get a comfortable and stylish pair of portable headphones with balanced and clear sound.

Bowers & Wilkins P3 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Bowers & Wilkins P3 headphones are well built and look great. But they won't be Best Buys unless they can back this up with great sound. We put them to the test.

B&W’s 803 D3 stands out in new flagship speaker range October 29th, 2015 | by Alfred Siew Audio-visual 0 B&W 803 D3

 

The new 803 D3s bring along the "turbine head" seen in the larger 802 and 800 models. And that makes a lot of difference.
