You probably already know how fond we are of the Bowers & Wilkins P3 Headphones, with their combination of excellent performance and reasonable price point–so adding another color to the mix just gives us a little more to love. B&W has just announced a new color to the P3 Lineup…Red, making four colors in all when added to the existing blue, black, and white versions. The new red P3s will be available this October for $199, and you can check out the full PR after the jump.

As much as we love our Bowers & Wilkins P5 headphones, I realized 2 things after doing my original review:
1. Though at $299 we felt that the P5 was a bargain, that price point may still be a bit high for folks on a budget who still want to experience Bowers & Wilkins audio.
2. While the P5 headphones are quite compact, many consumers are still looking for headphones that are more portable.
Now on the surface, B&W’s C5 in-ear headphones seem like the perfect solution–featuring a lower price ($179.95) as well as a much smaller in-ear form-factor; but the simple truth is that while the C5′s are a fantastic in-ear audio solution, some folks simply prefer on-ear or over-the-ear models. So what did Bowers & Wilkins do? What they always do–they outdid themselves. Read on to learn why the P3 headphones are the perfect compromise…without having to compromise.
What could possible inspire me to remove my Bowers & Wilkins P5 headphones in order to try on another pair? A new pair of B&W headphones, of course…and in this case, it’s the new P3. Designed to be slightly lighter and a bit more portable than its higher-numbered sibling, the P3 headphones feature the same attention to detail and quality of build as the P5s. Made of aluminum and using high-quality rubber and memory foam, the P3′s lighter weight not only make them a bit easier to carry, but also allows you to wear them longer. The Bowers & Wilkins P3 headphones will come in white and and black when they arrive this June, and will retail for $199; as always, you can expect a full review once our unit arrives (believe me, w’ll be counting the days).
