Design and Comfort

The Bowers & Wilkins P3 Series 2 headphones arrived at my office neatly folded up in a plastic clamshell styled case. Made of aluminum and a durable rubber body, it feels extremely rugged for its small size. The headphones mimic the style of the popular P5 headphones, but at nearly half the size, making these headphones lighter and more portable. Although it might not be recommended, I have carried these headphones in my jacket pocket and bag without the case. The included plastic case added too much bulk and didn’t have the same high-end Bowers & Wilkins feel.
