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.

Negarin is a young Iranian-born designer working in London. Extensively travelled, her influences are evident, her work mixing art with the latest in hi-tech fabric design and manufacture. Negarin embraces the avant-garde with a passion, yet her style is imbued with the classically chic.
Stylish, original, yet exquisitely made, the P3s superbly reflect the attitude of Negarin. While undeniably stylish, they never lose sight of the demands of real life. Foldable, portable, and superbly comfortable, they deliver great sound on-the-go for the sophisticated urbanite.
"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."
"Decent-quality downloads or streams are reproduced well across the board, containing definition, clarity and punch where appropriate. Fellow passenger-annoying leakage is pretty good, while the small-ear-sized pads block out a good whack of background noise."
"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."
"There are differences between the P3 and P5, to be sure, and there's little doubt that the original model remains B&W's flagship, but they have so much in common that users looking for a more budget-conscious alternative will certainly feel well-served by P3 -- and the new model has unique assets of its own that merit attention."
"Sound, comfort, and design all come together to create something special; something called the P3."
"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 P3 headphones are a big step up for people on the move. Their warmth, detail and comfort are first-rate. I would recommend leaving them in your carry-all once you get to your destination, though."
"If you’re in the market for a pair of sub-$200 headphones that look and sound like they should cost twice that, look no further than the Bowers & Wilkins P3 Headphones. Your ears will thank you."
