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 P5 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones, Portable HiFi, Black
  • I liked the relative light weight with touch controls on the headphone itself
  • I have fairly large size head, the clamp force is just right. I consider it's comfortable for an on ear style headphone and it is compact enough to carry around in my briefcase.
  • Very comfortable to wear and a proper size
  • Well made and very attractive - they fold flat into a nice case and are very packable. They are also light and very comfortable and easy to fit.
  • The build quality is pretty good, but they used chromed steel instead of alloy, adding unnecessary weight.

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 P5 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones, Portable HiFi, Black
  • Battery life is great, microUSB is always a plus for easy charging.
  • Does a great job at isolation/blocking out noise. Feels great to not be tethered by a wire.
  • Fantastic audio performance with rich, articulate lows and crystal clear highs.
  • Wired, passive mode automatically shuts off battery.
  • Included cable lacks remote control on the line.
  • The bluetooth ranger is so poor that I have downgraded my rating to three stars and am looking for a replacement
