Yep. I bought a pair of P5's when they where launched, and although I enjoyed their sound, I could never wear them for more than 30 minutes straight, as they would start hurting my ears due to the clamping force. After some time I sold them... Maybe these will be more confortable, keeping the same type of sound. I'll wait and see... rolleyes.gif

You will probably be disappointed to hear that according to a site that had a review of these headphones they are less comfortable than the P5's (unfortunately I don't remember where I saw this at).

Subscribed. I use my P5s primarily for air travel but agree they are definitely not the most comfortable. Would be interested to hear more about these. Was pretty excited when I saw B&W announced these (I.e. came straight here)

I read that somewhere too, although I'm not putting too much stock in it until more reviews surface. After all, the comfort of the P5s seemed to be a pretty subjective thing. Some people rave that they're the most comfortable headphones they've ever worn, others that the clamping force becomes excruciating after a while. I'm definitely in the latter bracket.

I'm not in either one of those camps haha I definitely don't think that they are comfortable but I also don't think they have enough clamping force because they are unstable on my head.

As usual, that's a very subjective matter. For me, the P5's were unconmfortable after a bit, and I have friends who say they're the most comfortable headphones they own, and they can wear them for hours straight. I guess I have a large head. My bad... deadhorse.gif

Hahaha yes it's all your fault that you have a large head . . . shame on you! biggrin.gif

Interesting, although I loved those sheepskin pads on the P5s maybe the p3 will be a little cooler on the ears

I enjoy the P5's since buying them in January although I too feel the clamping force is a bit extreme. I only have a small head and cannot imagine how uncomfortable it must be for anyone with a larger head. The heat generated by the pads as well isn't perfect IMO, often I take off the P5's and have sweat around my ears.

The P3's look interesting, their foldability reminds me of the Sennheiser px100. TBH now I have the P5's I doubt I will go out and buy the P3's.

What Hi-Fi released a review of the P3.  They give a brief description of the sound, nothing too detailed though.  It can be found here: http://www.whathifi.com/review/bw-p3

 

I will be getting a pair by next week, so I'll also have a review in the coming weeks (weeks = 3-4)
