When I reviewed the Oppo PM-1, I found that “Oppo’s PM-1 headphones take the prize as the best all-around general-purpose headphones I’ve ever used, even though they are not the best performers in any particular category.” Although the PM-3s do not achieve quite the same level of overall sound quality as their larger sibling, for one-third the cost they deliver a good portion of the sonic goodness that made the PM-1 such a fine all-around performer.
If you’re looking for a pair of headphones for situations where you still need to hear some outside sounds but don’t want to bother others with your music, the PM-3 would be a savvy option. It’s comfortable, extremely well made, and cleverly designed. Couple it with one of the new generation of portable players such as the Astell& Kern AK Jr, and for under $900 ($500 for the AK Jr and $399 for the PM-3) you have a portable rig that will keep you enthralled for as long as the batteries last.
