In terms of looks, they are one of the best-looking headphones you can get for your iPhone and are portable to carry along in your bag. One can listen to music on the go, but we will not recommend its usage for a longer duration. While testing the headphones for movie watching, they caused pain and discomfort in the cartilage.


Though the sound quality is crystal clear and very soothing to ears, particularly for soft songs. Bass is pretty decent too. Unfortunately, Bowers & Wilkins is not offering flat cables with this headset, which has become the new norm, but the inferior quality round cable that gets tangled easily.

The best feature of the Bowers & Wilkins P3 is a minor addition that makes it one the best picks. Inside the ear pads held magnetically are removable cords that can be changed if required. Also, you can fix the loose cord instead of giving away your headphones.
