There's no other way to say it - if you want to spend £350/$400 on a pair of headphones, look no further than the Oppo PM-3. They're the best headphones we've ever tested at this price point. They deliver everything you'd expect from headphones that cost this much, and make many inferior rivals look amateurish and overpriced. Read full review →

Pros

  • Stunning sound quality
  • Great isolation
  • Attractive design
  • Best in class
  • Incredibly rich detail as you’d expect from the best planar magnetic headphones you’ve heard.
  • The closed-back design makes these your go-to headphone while out on walks or in the office.

Cons

  • Faux leather earpads
  • Less precision than open-back cans
  • A bit of a tight fit, especially as the headphones are being broken in.
  • It’s a natural trade-off in design but a closed back build means a slightly narrower soundstage than we’d like.
