Its elegant styling and exquisite workmanship make the headphones a pleasure to wear in public, and its light weight and exceptional comfort make it easy to listen for hours on end. The closed-back nature of the PM-3 provides isolation from the outside world, blocking out the surrounding noise while avoiding sound leakage from the headphones.

OPPO PM-3 Planar Magnetic Headphone

OPPO Planar Magnetic Technology

The OPPO PM-3 utilizes a planar magnetic driver that is developed from the driver in our EISA award-winning PM-1 headphones. Technological breakthroughs achieved during the PM-1's development, such as the 7-layer double-side voice coil diaphragm design and FEM-optimized neodymium magnet system, have enabled us to reduce the weight of the planar magnetic drivers while maintaining excellent sound quality and high sensitivity. This driver would not have been possible without the breakthroughs achieved in the PM-1's driver design.

In the PM-3's planar magnetic driver, sound is generated by a very thin and light diaphragm which is driven in a symmetric pull-push manner, and the magnetic system and conductor patterns have been optimized for maximum sensitivity and consistency. This allows the diaphragm to generate very stable and linear piston-like vibrations, ensuring phase coherence and high resolution performance with minimal distortion.

The PM-3 driver's smaller size and high sensitivity overcome the shortcomings of traditional planar magnetic technology such as being difficult to drive and heavy weight. This all-new 55 mm diameter round driver is especially suitable for a lightweight close-back design like the PM-3. The PM-3 maintains the very natural and smooth sound signature of the PM-1, and is tuned to have deep, tight bass and a touch of excitement.


Hi-fi Sound Meets Style and Comfort

  • Unique Planar Magnetic Sound - Utilizing planar magnetic drivers derived from the award-winning PM-1 headphones, the PM-3 features deep bass, smooth midrange, and clear treble. The sound signature can be described as very natural and balanced, with plenty of emotion and impact.
  • Phase Coherence - When sound enters our ear, it has a planar wave front with all spectrum components in phase. A typical dynamic headphone driver disrupts this coherence with its phase irregularity, resulting in less than perfect signal peak reconstructions. OPPO's planar magnetic driver has much better phase coherency since all parts of the diaphragm are vibrating in concert without break up and delayed resonance.
  • Purely Resistive Impedance - OPPO's planar magnetic driver has a flat conductor pattern that does not have any inductive components. This eliminates inductance related inter-modulation distortion, which is especially common in dynamic drivers with high impedance and a high number of voice coil turns.
  • 7-Layer Diaphragm - OPPO's planar magnetic driver diaphragm has 7 layers of thin materials that provide excellent performance, reliability, and longevity. The construction of the diaphragm ensures that it is very stable under thermal stress and vibration.
  • Double-Sided Spiraling Coils - The diaphragm utilizes a spiraling pattern of flat aluminum conductors on either side of the driver. The double-sided design allows twice as many conductors to be placed within the magnetic field, which leads to higher sensitivity, better damping, and even drive force.
  • FEM-Optimized Magnet System - An FEM-optimized magnet system with very high energy Neodymium magnets is used to maximize sensitivity and consistency of the applied force over the driver area.
  • Optimized for Mobile Use - Many planar magnetic headphones have a sensitivity far below 100 dB and require very powerful amplifiers to drive. The OPPO PM-3 has a sensitivity of 102 dB, which allows it to be easily driven with mobile devices. Its low impedance works well with smartphones that ship with low impedance ear buds.
  • Lightweight and Truly Portable - With a weight of just 320 g, the OPPO PM-3 is the world's first truly portable closed-back planar magnetic headphone. It folds flat and comes with a selvedge denim carrying case. When folded and protected in the carrying case, the PM-3 takes very little space in a briefcase or backpack.
  • Unparalleled Comfort - Many planar magnetic headphones weigh over 500 g and are often uncomfortable to wear for more than a short period of time. Thanks to its light weight, plush padding and carefully calibrated clamping force, the OPPO PM-3 is a joy to listen for hours on end.


  • Elegant Style - Hi-fi products do not need to look ugly, and stylish products do not need to sound mediocre. The PM-3 sounds excellent, looks beautiful, and is equally at home in the fast-paced urban jungle as in the warmth of a dedicated listening room.
  • Material and Build Quality - The OPPO PM-3 is ruggedly constructed with strong metal and plush padding materials. The headphones have been tested to very high standards to withstand mechanical and environmental stress in order to guarantee exceptional performance throughout its lifespan.
  • Stability, Consistency, Reliability - Many planar magnetic headphones have large balance deviations between the left and right channels, and accurate stereo reproduction is contingent on having a very close match between the left and right channels. During the OPPO PM-3's manufacturing process, drivers are closely matched to ensure optimum stereo imaging and soundstage.
  • Selvedge Denim Carrying Case - The selvedge denim carrying case included with your OPPO headphones is manufactured using vintage shuttle looms by a supplier for a number of boutique clothing brands based in Europe and Japan. The material is a stylish, high-end fabric that is prized for its ability to weather the elements and develop a unique aesthetic character over time, and the slim design of the case is a perfect match with the PM-3’s ability to fold flat, allowing the headphones to fit easily within a backpack or briefcase.

  1. Revolutionizing Audio

    Posted by Keith Dsouza on 16th Feb 2018

    The Oppo PM3 is my first investment in planar magnetic headphones. They are an astonishing pair in terms of clarity and arousing my acoustic spectrum. The mid-high range is nothing short of brilliant while the lows are subtle without distorting the vocals etc. They are ideal for anyone listening to a variety of musical genres. The team at Solutions AV have been responsive and provide great service.

  2. Nice headphones

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Jan 2018

    I wanted to find a high quality headphones for casual use for music, viewing videos and playing games. I owned a sennheiser momentum 1 before purchasing the PM-3. I found the PM-3 to have a better sound quality, base, sharpness and the surround sound compared to the momentum 1. The PM-3 is recommended for mobile use but I personally find it better for PC as the mobile devices tend to be weak when it comes to outputting audio. The build quality is very good the paddings are comfortable. It comes with a mobile use cable with a volume and stop/start control. It also comes with a professional audio cable for audio machines. Usually products made in China are not great, but this Chinese company did a good job on the PM-3.

  3. Awesome Oppo PM-3

    Posted by westcoastman on 5th Sep 2017

    Sounded great right out of the box. Wonderful soundstage and very comfortable. Great build quality.
    Glad I finally found an affordable pair of headphones such as these

  4. Great sound, very comfortable

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Jun 2017

    As a fan of planar magnetic driver type of headphones, and a very picky audiophile, I can say I'm very happy with PM-3's. I was worried it would be hard to drive with just a phone or a portable player, but my worries faded away once I plugged it in and drowned in an amazing sound. For information, if you like high-quality "flat" sound, you'd be very happy and enjoy the music like it was meant to be heard.

  5. Great audio and build quality, but design suits some more than others.

    Posted by Gordon on 3rd May 2017

    The sounds quality lives up to the hype. The build quality lives up to the hype. However the design is around portability which means these are smaller and more snug than you might expect from their standalone images.

    I was looking for high quality at home in a quiet room headphones, and in retrospect think that I could have done better. Additionally I wouldn't wear these on the go in the intended "urban environment" because I'd never wear anything that expensive on the go.

  6. Very good headphones but..

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Apr 2017

    The pm-3 is a solidly built, attractive and comfortable headphone. In terms of sound it is very neutral and brings out every detail of the recording. This set is probably best used as a monitor, and for that purpose they function very well. However for someone just interested in casual listening, these might underwhelm somewhat. I'm using my axon 7, where volume is no weakness, and find myself often looking for more bass. If you're willing to flip on the eq, these become a great deal more exciting for a casual listen. This is of course, totally a matter of taste. There are many reviews out there and I would encourage anyone looking at buying these to seek out multiple opinions.

  7. OPPO PM3

    Posted by Jan Giezen on 13th Dec 2016

    love the headphones, beautiful sound and so clear plus very comfortable fit for long duration.

  8. Good Product - Sh*t Service

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Oct 2016

    The product is fantastic of course, but this company has the customer service of a vending machine.

    I think this view is a little severe. This customer requested next day delivery and due to an operational issue at UPS, the delivery was missed by 1 day. On behalf of UPS, we apologize for this missed delivery.

  9. Great set of headphones

    Posted by Unknown on 4th Aug 2016

    Not cheap, but a wonderful investment - I find the sound is really clear, good separation and beautiful sounding! For some types of music, the bass isn't as present as other headphones, but it depends what sound type you enjoy!

    So far, I love them!
