Bowers & Wilkins doesn't make many headphones, but when it does, they're usually very good and fairly expensive. The B&W P5 headphones from 2010 earned PCMag's Editors' Choice for their excellent sound quality and design. The company is now returning to on-ear headphones with its new P3 model.
We were impressed by the P5 headphones's powerful and accurate bass response, and general sound quality. Since the P3 headphones seem to use similar technology in the construction of both the ear cups and the drivers, we can expect similar performance from them.
The Bowers & Wilkins P3 headphones will come with two different cables (one with an iPhone/iPad remote), a 3.5mm to 6.3mm adapter, and a hard shell case. They will be available in black and white versions this June, and retail for $199.99, $100 less than the P5 headphones.
