    A Decent Sound producing, Natural, But need a little more solid sound

    • Written by from Bangkok

    I bought it in Bangkok as I live here and there was only P3 and C5 available in the store. I own one of B&W Zep-Air, so you could say I am a fan of B&W. As soon as I get home I listened to P3 immediately. First I was pretty much disappoint. The firmness of the sound is not live up to it. I wasn't satisfied.
    Well, It might be because I tried to compare with Zep-Air. After I read more reviews, there was one said that burn it in would make some improvement to it. As I did, for couple days as for 6 hours straight of Maximum volume. It sound better but not a big leap. It has great sound reproducing in almost all aspect except for the firmness of the sound.
    I have bought it only 1 week thought. Hopefully, If I burn it hard out for few more time it might get better. After all the burn it kind of give more solid sounding but the warming and softness of it sound kind of decrease. However it still produces a warming and soft sounding. And I prefer this over Beat Pro by Dre.(my cousin has one) I tried the Beat on and I must admit that it has firmness of the sound but apart from that B&W p3 sound better to my ear in all aspect, natural, close-in bass, comfortable to wear and sounding of p3 seems to hurt my ear at minimum level. If I would have to listen to Beat Pro for more than 2-3hours I guess I would take it off before that. There is a tip. If you listen to it by taking off the acoustic fabric, it gives much more firmness and clear sounding but, it would take away all the warm and soft sounding of it. (And probably it would not be quite comfortable to do so)

    Fantastic Headphones

    • Written by from Burbank

    I am a sound mixer for a living and utilize Sony MDR-7506 Stereo Headphones for work. I bought these headphones for personal use and love them. I listen to more music and watch more tv shows and movies because they sound fantastic. The size/design is perfect and the detail that I can hear when using the P3's are extraordinary. They also come with a black plastic case that is very useful for traveling.

    Great Headset

    • Written by from West New York

    Picked up a pair of P3's last week based on several positive reviews. Great headset considering they don't have noise cancellation. Everything I've played thru them sound fantastic (maybe even better than my Bose QC 15's). Can't go wrong with these headphones.

    Great sound, excellent comfort!

    • Written by from SPOKANE

    I've struggled to find the "right" pair of headphones for 10 years. These came highly recommended from various audio and tech blogs and after listening to them in the store and trying them on, I was sold! Earbuds are painful for me to wear, larger over ear units fall off of me. The BW p3 is the first pair of headphones I've worn that don't fall off and deliver great sound in noisy environments! These are designed for business travelers, so the bass is a little more forward than I would like, but that is by design because bass drowns out background noise from airports and in a noisy environment like my house with three barking dogs, I'm grateful for it! The fabric covering is super comfortable. These headphones are designed to be worn for hours at a time and they stood up to my six hour road trip over the weekend without my ears feeling sweaty or sore. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase!
