What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Bowers & Wilkins P3 Headphones (Wired) - Black/Grey
  • They are light weight and don't hurt your ears if you are wearing them for long periods of time
  • These light-weight, comfortable headphones manage to handle the highs with clarity, and still have a very pleasant low end without muddiness
  • Aesthetic, build quality is great, light weight, comfortable
  • Weighting only 130g including cable, P3 is very lightweight. The metal hinges allowed them to be fully folded in to take very little space.
  • They are real pretty but not enough attention was devoted to ergonomics. Ear sizes and shapes vary... It must have been modelled for someone with flat and symmetrical ears.
Bowers & Wilkins P3 Series 2 Headphones
  • These are significantly sturdier, better performing, and better quality feel/look in leather and aluminum than higher cost "popular" headsets, and they are also much more comfortable to wear while commuting.
  • Very durable, come in a nice case
  • Comfortable for wearing all day at work
  • Returned them. Way too small for me. They seemed more like kids headphones. I could not keep them on my head and I am a small person.

What customers say about "Features"
Bowers & Wilkins P3 Headphones (Wired) - Black/Grey
  • The sound is a very nice sound, clear, natural and you can hear the details of the music. If you're looking for a quality sound and light headphones, this is a great option.
  • Great craftsmanship, compact and comfortable to wear. Sound is ok, enough low end sound
  • They have a fair amount of noise cancellation from outside sources, particularly those with a high frequency.
  • Headband and ear cups covered with soft touch rubber that can eventually become tacky
  • Only complaint is the cord seems flimsy, but it includes a spare (w/o controls and mic)
  • headphones came as advertised - the cable was not - no volume control
Bowers & Wilkins P3 Series 2 Headphones
  • Excellent product. Clear and brilliant highs, broad mid-range, and enough bass reflex to fill out the aural spectrum without overpowering the sound.
  • I previously owned the original P3's, which I loved. These are definitely an upgrade in sound and comfort. I am blown away by these. They sound full and can dish out plenty of bass.
  • They do a better job at reducing outside noise in comparison to the original (I use these when I'm commuting- Nyc subway), due to its leather ear pads.
  • A nice upgrade from previous model by replacing cloth ear cups with leather.
  • The come with a hard shell case that offers very good protection.
  • The wire for the head clamp is a little tight
  • The headphone sounds good only with a certain type of music
