Bowers & Wilkins P3 Black On-Ear Headphones, Model P3B
The Bowers & Wilkins P3 Headphones are an excellent choice for the discerning listener who appreciates high-quality audio, but also the need for headphones that travel well. With sound quality that captures the essence of B&W speakers, and a construction designed to withstand the rigors of constant on-the-go use, the B&W P3 headphones make no compromise in their quest to bring you perfect, portable sound.
Like their big sibling, the B&W P5, the P3 headphones are designed to achieve the perfect balance of style and durability, with an added emphasis on maximum wearability. The flexible metal headband is wrapped in a rugged rubber and cloth covering, providing comfort for wearers of all sizes. Along with its folding arms, this flexibility makes the P3 headphones easy to stow in a pocket, or in the included clamshell travel case. Soft earpads covered in acoustic fabric encourage hours of listening enjoyment.
Not just for comfort, the snug fit of the B&W P3 headband works with the earpads to improve audio performance by creating a tight seal around your ear. While not fully noise-isolating, this seal helps maintain the renowned B&W audio fidelity, preserving your music's dynamic range and delivering every detail to your ears. And that music comes from drivers that have been designed from the ground up, inspired by legendary B&W speaker technology. Ultra-linear neodymium magnets drive high-tech laminate diaphragms, helping pack B&W loudspeaker sound into a compact headphone unit. Combined with a newly-engineered venting method that reduces distortion, the B&W P3 headphones provide an auditory experience with a remarkable clarity and natural sound that has to be heard to be believed.
Audio performance is not the sole deciding factor in choosing a quality pair of headphones, because comfort is an important consideration. After all, the more enjoyable it is to wear your headphones, the more you'll enjoy listening to music. Thankfully, the B&W P5 Headphones deliver on both fronts, in a package that encourages listening on the go.
Real life deserves a great soundtrack
P3 combines pristine audio performance with maximum wearability. These slimline headphones fit lightly and snugly on your head, and fold up to stow away in your pocket or their own hard-shell carry case. And they produce a remarkably natural, detailed sound on the move, thanks to some major technological innovations that reduce distortion to a minimum.
Drive unit technology
P3’s drive units have been designed from the ground up to give the best possible sound from a small set of headphones. We’ve repositioned the terminals to make sure that airflow around the drive units is uniform, resulting in a more linear movement. And we’ve introduced a unique damping system that provides the optimum balance of stiffness and flexibility.
