Bowers & Wilkins P3 On-Ear Headphones, White

Product information

Bowers & Wilkins’s P3 headphones combine pristine audio performance with maximum comfort. These slim-line headphones fit lightly and snugly on your head, and fold up to stow away in your pocket or their own hard-shell carry case. They even produce a remarkably natural, detailed sound on the move, thanks to some major acoustic innovations that reduce distortion to a minimum.

Sublime Sound
P3’s drive units have been designed from the ground up to give the best possible sound from a small set of headphones. Repositioned terminals make sure that airflow around the drive units is consistent for more direct sound.

Foldable Shape
Its unique foldable design makes these headphones easy to store, pack and transport.

Intuitive Control
P3’s cable comes with a remote/microphone attachment, so it works seamlessly with your iPhone. And because the cable is so easy to detach and swap, P3 is also compatible with all other mobile phones and MP3 players.

Expertly-Built Earpads
Bespoke fabric covering the earpads provide acoustic transparency in the centre, while forming a perfect seal around the edge for better bass and noise isolation. The pads are made from heat-sensitive memory foam that moulds to the shape of your ears, becoming more comfortable and enhancing sound quality over time.

The remote and mic are supported only by iPod nano (4th generation and later), iPod classic (12GB, 160GB), iPod touch (2nd generation and later), iPhone 3GS and later, iPad and iPad 2. The remote is supported by iPod shuffle (3rd generation or later).

Q & As

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A brilliantly classy set of headphones So much more classy to wear than beats headphones and similar, with far clearer and balanced sound quality as well, making them versatile for all types of listening. Even though they look dainty, they're actually really quite sturdy too. 08 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really useful product Bowers & Wilkins P3 On-Ear Headphones quality.Excellent. 08 December 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Had to return Sadly, these headphones did not work. One side had no sound at all. So I returned and replaced with another brand. 01 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by good quality product Lovely sound and very comfortable, the only issue I have is with the cable, being attached to both sides is a little fiddley and it never straightens out so gets twisted up very easily. 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality assured Already owning the Bowers & Wilkins P7 Headphones, i knew what quality was expected. The P7's being larger and bulkier are ideal for home but wanted something smaller for out and about, that were different from my normal 'in ear' earphones. These were ideal as still discreet but pack a powerful punch with great crisp sound. Other reviewers can go into detail about the audio qualities. What i know is what my ears tell me and I am more than happy. Covers full range. Haven't worn for particularly long periods yet, but seem comfortable to wear 13 October 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bowers & Wilkins P3 On-ear headphones These head phones were recommended as providing overall quality of sound, rather than extreme bass sound. Quality is excellant and are extremely comfortable to wear for long periods. Purchased from John Lewis as they promise reliabilty and no danger of a fraudulant product, at the correct price. Very pleased with my purchase. 06 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value for the money Ordered click and collect arrived next day, Took them with me to Spain and unfortunately when I opened them to use one ear phone was not working. Contacted John Lewis whose customer service was outstanding ordered another pair arrived promptly in Spain returned the faulty ones and account was credited. Like the style of these headphones as they are not over the top, Very comfortable good sound and feel quality, Overall pleased with the service and the product, Good value for money would recommend. 06 October 2015
