Go anywhere, do anything, enjoy your music. P3 headphones offer the perfect balance of portability and performance, stylish design and versatility. Bowers & Wilkins most pocketable on-ear headphones feature unique engineering innovations to ensure small still sounds absolutely beautiful – with a natural and spacious audio performance. With four bold colour options, P3 also lets you stand out from the crowd, accessorise or add to your personal style. P3 looks stunning anywhere.
There is more to P3 ear pads than meets the eye. The bespoke fabric covering provides acoustic transparency in the centre, while perfectly sealing edges for better bass and noise isolation.
For natural-sounding response and exceptional clarity for headphones this size, we redesigned the driver, including diaphragm, from the ground up. And designed a unique damping system to control speaker cone movement.
Bowers & Wilkins most portable on-ear headphones required many engineering innovations to ensure the perfect balance of size and audio quality. The result sounds spectacular and folds to fit easily in a pocket or purse.
P3 ear pads are made from heat-sensitive memory foam that moulds to the shape of your ears, becoming increasingly more comfortable, while enhancing sound quality. They are also removable for cleaning or replacement.
P3 comes with a Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad cable with inline remote control and microphone. It also comes with a universal audio cable, compatible with all phones, tablets, and portable devices.
P3s smart, easy-fold design means they slip easily into a pocket or purse, or in its bespoke clamshell case. No need to worry about it getting bounced about in a rucksack or carry-on luggage.
"Compact, ergonomically satisfying , and beautifully made. Neautrally balanced and harmonically correct, the P3 has a midrange our reviewer described as a thing of beauty, staking out that elusive middle ground between too warm and rich, and too lean and analytical."
"The Bowers & Wilkins P3 headphones' impressive combination of design, sound quality, and features put it near the top of the class for portable headphones in its price range."
"The P3s are a competitive high-end contender for shoppers with a sartorial eye and a commute that won't stop. The P3's produce very desirable sound for the balanced music listener. These headphones produce even, ideal sound."
"The P3s still sound excellent, and they deliver enough pleasure — auditory and otherwise — to justify the price tag."
"Bowers & Wilkins say the P5 is for “mobile” use, but they’re an additional part of my home theater and computer audio sections now. If the Brits had attacked the colonies with headphones like the P3 instead of guns, we’d all be happily drinking tea right now."
"B&W really nailed the design of the P3 — it’s comfortable, practical, and looks terrific. We also dig the sound; I’m sure I’ll be using these a lot just ’cause they’re so easy to listen to for long periods of time."
"How do the P3s sound? Brilliant. They’re a punchy, exciting listen, brimming with vigour and keen to please. Low frequencies have a remarkable sense of not only weight but depth too. The P3s display a Messi-like sense of control: delivery is as precise as you could wish for in a headphone at this price."
"B&W’s P5 has been a hit critical and commercial hit. Its design, comfort, and sound make it a good value."
"Build quality is exceptional, a bounty of positive onomatopoeias: The 'phones fold up with a positive click; magnetic earpads catch hold of their cups with a satisfying thunk; the black, taco-shaped hard case snaps shut like it's trying to bite off your finger."

This product is good but there is one drawback. The headband of the headphones will pressure your head if you wore it in long hours. Though you will feel comfortable when you wear the headphone in the first few hours, after that, the headband would pressure the ears and caused headache. I was wearing the headphones on a 12 hours flight, after several hours, the headphones make me headache which caused by the pressure of the headband. It would be great if B&W look into this issue, and make the headband more flexible in the future.

I've had these for a year and was sad when the cord got ruined. When I realized I could get a new cord without purchasing new headphones I was ecstatic. Love these headphones!

I'm using B&W headset since last year and it has been a really great experience.
I'm not highly sensitive to audio sensory but I think it's better or at least of the same level of sound quality amongst other audio devices in the same price range.
the only thing that I'd call out is the little black cover (the very pin that you plug into the device) gets a little loose fairly soon
