when it comes to some real serious music listening, fans are divided. to one camp sound reproduction is all that matters, while the other camp would demand that a good sound should have the look to match. if you belongs to the latter camp, then there’s good news: a wee more affordable version of the beautiful B&W P5 Headphones, known as the P3, is coming to you this June. priced 100 bucks cheaper than the P5, the P3 does suffer from some trimmings such as fabric-wrapped ear cups instead of sheepskin leather and 30mm drivers as opposed to the 40mm drivers found on the P5s. however, you will still get the same sleek aluminum design but with the added advantage of foldability for ease of storage and transportation. the P3 comes packaged with two different cables: one Apple-friendly cable with inline remote and microphone for taking calls and skipping of tracks and one universal cable that will work with other smartphones and media players. coming to you this June in black or white for $199.99 a pair.
