I've tried the Bose OEI2, the Harman Kar For the past month I've been on a mission to find the best pair of headphones under $200. I've tried the Bose OEI2, the Harman Kardon CL's and the Beats Solo. As a previous owner of the P5's I couldn't wait to give these a try.

    I'm at about 8 hours of listening, and they definitely need a bit of a burn-in, but once they opened up I was amazed at the quality.

    It seems to be more and more difficult to find headphones that do not "color" frequencies (The beats do this terribly. Far too much bass. Gives me a headache.) Even the HKCL's did this. I'm glad that B&W do their best to deliver the music as naturally as possible without adding harsh treble or pumped up bass. The music the P3's deliver is exceptional. Even the midrange (which is the most difficult frequency to deliver in headphones) is exceptional.

    The build quality is on-par with the audio quality. Amazing. They fit well, look great, and the case (although a bit plasticy and not "high end") will certainly keep them safe. They're easily portable (much more so than the HKCL's) and seem to be built to last.

    Without a doubt these are the best $199 headphones I've ever owned.

After testing out Harmon Kardon, Bose, and Beats, the Bowers & Wilkins P3 had the perfect mix of highs, mids, and lows. It is not overpowering with bass like the Beats Solo HD. I listen to a variety of music spanning from Jazz to Progressive House, and these headphones fit the bill wonderfully. Futhermore, these headphones are portable and incredibly comfortable. Mixed with elegant looks and durable construction, the B&W P3 was the perfect combination of sound and estethics. I highly recommend these headphones to anyone looking to truly appreciate quality audio.

On ear, over the ear, open, closed, it's rediculous how many there are and all fail at some measure. Uncomfortable, no highs, too much base, no mids, it goes on and on. The P3 get its right at every turn. Comfort, oustanding definition ( I found the base a bit strong but easy to adjust for). Rich full sound, controls and mic on cord, compact and sturdy. I do not think for portbale use there is another product even close.
    You owe iot to yourself to at least try these beauties!

    Hello, I recently bought this headphones in the white version.

    They are beautiful and the sound is amazingly good and detailed. Hello, I recently bought this headphones in the white version.

    They are beautiful and the sound is amazingly good and detailed.

    I also own a Bose Quiet Confort 15 headphones, and is hard to tell which one is better. But the B&W is more pleasant to use since the noise canceling feature can cause some annoying feeling.

    I recommend this product to everyone who wants to enjoy rich, balanced and detailed sound. In order to extract the maximum potential I recommend use with high quality sources, like Apple Lossless Audio, Flac or 320 kbps mp3.

I have tested almost every option from Beats to Bose, and Bowers and Wilkins as a company stands apart. Being an avid user of the more expensive Bowers and Wilkins P5, ($300), I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. While comparing the two, (P5 & P3), there is a subtle difference in the music clarity. However, in every other way, the P3's match the P5's. Constructed of rubber and medal, the P3's build quality excellent build quality is evident. Everything you touch and feel is impeccable; these headphones are tuned to reproduce crisp sound regardless of the genre. Well done Bowers and Wilkins!! The P3 and P5 are the best headphones on the market.

You have to break them in like a pair of shoes for optimum sound. You can hear the depths of songs a lot better than regular Apple earbuds. You won't want to go back to your little earbuds! The bass is just the right amount. The headphones are really tight on your head and can leak sound if you go over 50% of your sound since fabric is used. It doesn't do well in terms of noise canceling. It's best if you're listening indoors or in a place where it's near quiet. It travels well.
