Bowers & Wilkins P3

 

Hands On: We take a first listen and look at B&W's new portable on-ear headphones

launch, we're going to sit back, relax and bask in the joy of having spent an hour or so in Abbey Road studios surrounded by the best audio equipment Bowers and Wilkins has to offer.

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.

  (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 P3 headphones

 

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

Excellent overall sound ; Good bass response ; Excellent build quality and design

Treble is slightly overshadowed ; Can leak sound at high volumes

B&W's P3 earphones are smaller than the brilliant, premium P5 model, but still pack in excellent sound quality that's rich and exciting. Treble isn't quite as crisp as you'd expect, but mid-range and bass response is excellent and the headphones are...
