Retains B&W aesthetic.
Good build quality.
Very compact & portable.
Portable and easy to enjoy day to day.
Excellent audio performance with pleasantly resonant bass response.
Does not distort on deep bass at high volumes.
Built-in iPhone controls.
Sound lacks a bit in balance and clarity.
May not be secure enough on small heads.
The physical construction of the P3 takes some time to loosen up.
Leaks sound at higher volumes.
A slightly less-crisp response than some listeners may prefer.

When Bowers & Wilkins the released the C5 IEM , the design didn’t blow me away but from the first time I saw the new portable P3 I was a fan. The pictures B&W released were simply gorgeous, and I absolutely loved the brand new white P3 I tried on...-
