When a cast member of Jersey Shore put her name to a pair of cans, celebrity-endorsed headphones lost their appeal and the word 'celebrity' imploded under the weight of its own meaninglessness. Fortunately, then, B&W's folding, iPhone-friendly headphones are the anti-Beats: subtle, stylish and just a bit good. Rather than being dictated by a second-rate Dr Dre wannabe, the design, engineering and tuning of the P3s was handled by the same team responsible for B&W's Zeppelin Air dock and its legendary 800 Series Diamond speakers – which are so ubiquitous at London's Abbey Road Studios, they're practically used as doorstops.
