OPPO PM-3 Closed Back Planar Magnetic Headphones Review

Based on the upscale OPPO PM-1 high-end headphones, the well-priced OPPO PM-3 sealed planar magnetic headphone combines audiophile-level acoustic performance, excellent ambient noise isolation and unique styling into a set of sleek cans ready for portable listening or just chilling with your music at home or at the office.

An exceptionally smooth, even-toned timbral presentation throughout the entire frequency spectrum with a tidy, pinpoint bass response is the signature sound of the Oppo PM 3. The PM3 bass response stays laid-back and its sense of relaxed, easy pacing extends to the silky treble ranges which ring clear and mellow without any sharp timbral edges. We think the rounded acoustic warmth of the Oppo PM-3 remains one of its most engaging audio strengths.

Tipping the scales at a skinny 10 oz., the Oppo PM-3 is certainly among the world’s lightest closed-back planar magnetic headphones. The elegant styling and exquisite high-end workmanship give the headphones a lovely cosmetic appeal, and the very secure fit ergonomics allow comfortable listening on the move.


The headband clamping force on the ears can perhaps feel a bit squeeze-y after long all-day listening sessions but the tight seal of the earpads contributes to the strong isolation factor from the loud ambient world. So the PM-3 blocks out quite a bit of environmental noise while also effectively preventing sound ‘leakage’ from the headphones. This makes the Oppo PM-3 a superb choice for commuting, traveling, office cubicle jams or late-night listening.

The Oppo PM-3 package includes a 3 meter detachable headphone cable and a quality zippered storage/travel case. The PM3 can be purchased with either Apple or Android-compatible smartphone cables featuring an inline mic and 3-button control. Please remember to select your PM-3 smartphone cable type above!
