Most companies fight for their over-ear headphones to be bigger and bulkier, as if their heft is some sort of signpost of sound quality. Bowers & Wilkins thankfully doesn't play that game and designed the P3s to be so light and comfortable you forget they're on your head. But don't mistake the lissome build for weakness. The P3s delivered some of the best soundscapes of any headphone, in any price range, that we tested this year. Bigger is not always better.
