P3 joins Bowers & Wilkins growing range of high-performance mobile hi-fi headphones that already includes the P5 on-ear headphones and C5 in-ear headphones. With close to five decadesí accumulated acoustic and design excellence behind it, P3 represents a new high in affordable mobile headphone performance.
P3 is portable and light, yet rugged. Built from aluminium and durable rubber, the headphones feature a custom-made, ultra-light acoustic fabric on the ear pad covers. P3 folds up for easy storage, and stows away into its own compact hard-shell carry case. Thereís also a choice of black or white finishes.
P3ís high-performance sound is the result of countless hours of testing and tuning with some of the best, most experienced engineers and listeners in the business. The P3ís speaker diaphragms feature driver terminals that have been positioned to ensure uniform airflow, resulting in more linear movement and less distortion. Coupled with the use of ultra-linear neodymium magnets and precision damping this ensures smoother motion and therefore a more accurate, natural sound. Plus, the ear pad fabric has been designed especially for P3 to improve the sound quality, but it is also very comfortable, allowing users to listen for longer.
P3 comes with a hard carry case and a choice of cables: one with a remote/microphone attachment that works seamlessly with your iPhone; and another that ensures compatibility with all other mobile phones and MP3 players. Swapping cables is easy, and simply involves popping off the replaceable ear pads.
The combination of high-performance, considered features, and smart design make P3 the headphones of choice for people who demand great sound on the move.
