The recently launched P3 headphones have been received exceptionally well by the press. Here is a selection of the first reviews.
What Hi-Fi? 5 star review:
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. You can read the full review here
T3 5 star review:
The Bowers & Wilkins P3 headphones follow on from the popular P5s and, like their predecessor, need to be heard to be believed. As with all Bowers & Wilkins products, the finish is superb. Well crafted, engineered and a joy to use. Read the full review here.
“There are differences between the P3 and P5, to be sure, and there’s little doubt that the original model remains B&W’s flagship, but they have so much in common that users looking for a more budget-conscious alternative will certainly feel well-served by P3 —
and the new model has unique assets of its own that merit attention.

Sound + Vision:
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. You can read the full review here
