Go anywhere, do anything, enjoy your music. P3 headphones offer the perfect balance of portability and performance, stylish design and versatility. Bowers & Wilkins most pocketable on-ear headphones feature unique engineering innovations to ensure small still sounds absolutely beautiful – with a natural and spacious audio performance. With four bold colour options, P3 also lets you stand out from the crowd, accessorise or add to your personal style. P3 looks stunning anywhere.
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.
Bowers & Wilkins most portable on-ear headphones required many engineering innovations to ensure the perfect balance of size and audio quality. The result sounds spectacular and folds to fit easily in a pocket or purse.
P3 ear pads are made from heat-sensitive memory foam that moulds to the shape of your ears, becoming increasingly more comfortable, while enhancing sound quality. They are also removable for cleaning or replacement.
P3 comes with a Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad cable with inline remote control and microphone. It also comes with a universal audio cable, compatible with all phones, tablets, and portable devices.
P3s smart, easy-fold design means they slip easily into a pocket or purse, or in its bespoke clamshell case. No need to worry about it getting bounced about in a rucksack or carry-on luggage.
“Super stylish with exceptional sound quality – a gorgeously light folding design. The perfect audio solution for classy commuting”
"Top 10 Best headphones of 2015 – An excellent balance of price, design, build quality and sound performance”
"Superb sound and an achingly stylish design make these the best portable on-ear headphones around. All punch, sparkle and solidity. Lightweight materials, a foldable design and the neat carry case make them great for commuting too. Oh, and they also sound superb – all punch, sparkle and solidity. Bass is deep and weighty but not at the expense of mid-range detail or clarity. In short, they’re absolutely brilliant"
"What we found most impressive about the P3s was the sense of space. The separation of bass, mid and treble is most pleasing and feels to have an individual separation – that sort of positioning when listening to a live band in some respects; this is stereo dynamism at its best. We tested out bass-heavy techno to modern-day rock, a dash of pop and a good smattering of classics to ensure every base was covered. All responded well and even the bass-heavy music managed to produce a decent enough separation and the bubbling, rolling bass that didn’t over-dominate the sound."
The P3s are practical, musical and super-stylish. They display a good sense of control, and they're a refined, easygoing listen that make even low bit-rate files listenable. The shifts in depth and weight to the bassline from Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean are clear, rhythm-driven and solid. Vocals sound emotive, expressive and there’s a fine sense of richness, refinement too.
"These are a set of headphone designed specifically to bring the B&W on-ear listening experience to a more portable world."
"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."
Amazing headphones. I've always struggled with in ear headphones to get the sound I want. Always had to push them in too much to get the bottom end. No such problems with these. Brilliant build quality too. Treat yourself and buy some.

Sound quality is just unbelievable. I tried these and the P5's. Sound wise i could hardly tell the difference. Although the leather does look nicer i couldn't see it was worth the extra cash. Definitely recommend these.

Great for delicate sounds. Beautiful detail. A real true sound. Wouldn't suggest them for someone who like a real heavy bass. Great quality product. Case is very handy too.
