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.

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.
Negarin is a young Iranian-born designer working in London. Extensively travelled, her influences are evident, her work mixing art with the latest in hi-tech fabric design and manufacture. Negarin embraces the avant-garde with a passion, yet her style is imbued with the classically chic.
Stylish, original, yet exquisitely made, the P3s superbly reflect the attitude of Negarin. While undeniably stylish, they never lose sight of the demands of real life. Foldable, portable, and superbly comfortable, they deliver great sound on-the-go for the sophisticated urbanite.
"How do the P3s sound? Brilliant. They’re a punchy, exciting listen, brimming with vigour and keen to please. Low frequencies have a remarkable sense of not only weight but depth too. The P3s display a Messi-like sense of control: delivery is as precise as you could wish for in a headphone at this price."
"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."
"The Bowers & Wilkins P3s represent another triumph in design and comfort. Like the P5s before them, these headphone look incredibly stylish and are quite possibly the most comfortable I've ever worn."
"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."
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 think many will find the P3 to be a spectacular option for critical music listeners."
“Bowers & Wilkins has delivered an excellent balance of price, design, build quality and sound performance with the P3.”
