Bowers & Wilkins P3 Headphones: Compromise without Compromise

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.
