Pros: Beautiful design, fit and finish are museum quality. Size is great, not too big nor small. Sound: Excellent blend of treble Pros: Beautiful design, fit and finish are museum quality. Size is great, not too big nor small. Sound: Excellent blend of treble and bass, great for all types of music.
Cons: cords are cheap, look and feel like something on a $5 pair of earphones. Tangle easily. Beats wires are far superior.
Control is on left side, a real pain if your right-handed

P3's are not wireless but they are one of the best sounding headsets...EVER !! If you're looking f P3's are not wireless but they are one of the best sounding headsets...EVER !! If you're looking for bass thumpers, go find something else. These will let you hear music as the artist intended. Clear highs, bright midrange and deep bass if that's what is supposed to be heard. I've had mine for 5 years and they're still going strong. …

Do these headphones work for someone wearing hearing aides? (Not able to get enough amplification with ipad volume alone)
- Asked by Mary W from Milbank
- Nov 26, 2012
I'm not sure if these headphones will give higher amplification as the apple products all have a vol I'm not sure if these headphones will give higher amplification as the apple products all have a volume limit. You probably need to investigate an external desktop amplifier that you put between the ipad and your headphones. For example, check out the Fiio range of amplifers. They have a range of desktop and portable amplifiers that should do the job. Warning! Check the connections as I understand the ipad has a different connection than the ipod. The Fiio range normally connect using USB ports, although I connect a Fiio amp to my ipod using the standard ipod connector port (its a connector also sold by Fiio). With the P3's this set-up gives excellent sound quality. …

Yes. Out of the box they sound muddy and very bass loaded. Burn them in over a weekend by playing lo Yes. Out of the box they sound muddy and very bass loaded. Burn them in over a weekend by playing loud music and they transform - the treble opens up, the midrange comes through and they sound very nice indeed. They remain slightly bass-forward, but nothing like the Beats headphones. They also drive nicely from an iPhone or iPod/Pad without separate amplification. …
