For the Urban Audiophile - high fidelity wherever you go

The OPPO PM-3 combines true audiophile performance, elegant styling, noise isolation and portability into a pair of sleek lightweight Planar Magnetic headphones. With the PM-3, users can easily recreate the experience of listening to a pair of flagship headphones on a flagship amplifier or a high quality 2-channel speaker system in an optimized listening room, but in a portable form factor that can be taken anywhere. Tipping the scale at just slightly over 10 oz., the PM-3 is the world's lightest closed-back planar magnetic headphones. This makes the PM-3 the ideal headphones for a person who is always on the go. 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. OPPO

    Posted by Wayne Reid on 13th Jun 2016

    Quality products
    oppo pm3 and HA-2 is the way to go

  2. Great set of cans

    Posted by Grant on 11th May 2016

    The PM-3 are my first foray into higher end headphones and they haven't disappointed. Excellent noise isolation, comfortable, great looks and the sound quality continues to impress.

    They match up well with my iphone, the mic works great. Very easy to take a call on a noisy bus.

    They're not cheap, but the good stuff rarely is.

  3. Miles better than other brands

    Posted by Jack on 9th May 2016

    Hi,You know there is so much junkie audio stuff out there.High prices and get nothing in return.This oppo headphone is the best and a breakthrough product.I never like headphone sound but this one is made right.Some time
    soon,I will purchase a oppo 105D player because it is the best CD player out there.Oppo just hit everything out of the park.

  4. Outstanding Headphones

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Mar 2016

    Very happy with this purchase, the sound is ridiculously good! There are glowing reviews for the PM3 all over the internet, so all I'll say here is that these are easily driven by a smartphone (Nexus 6P in my case), although they obviously sound a bit better with an external DAC/Amp. Shipping from Solutions A/V was very expedient, can't go wrong with these headphones.

  5. Very disappointing!

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Jan 2016

    I am very disappointed with this PM3, I expected more.
    I have other headphones of similar price and lower ones that sounds way better than this! It is totally not worth it!

    We are sorry to hear your PM-3 headphones did not work out for you. Please email us at oppo@solutionsav.ca. We would like to sincerely understand what features in the sound in these headphones were not to your satisfaction. As for the price, we have no control over the Canadian-US dollar exchange rate. The price of the PM-3 purchased at the end of 2015 would be much higher vs that purchase, say, mid-2015. Looking forward to hearing from you.

  6. Great service and product

    Posted by Peter on 7th Jan 2016

    I was wavering on this purchase, but after speaking with Ben at Solutions A/V via email -- and him offering and arranging convenient shipping options -- I committed, and happy I did.

    They are expensive, but the comfort and sound are second to no portable headphone.

  7. Excellent sound and quality.

    Posted by David Cook on 4th Jan 2016

    New to OPPO, but now a convert. First class for the $500 range. I am using the PM-3 in a semi portable way, iPhone, Nano, PONO. If you are into PONO then look no further the combination is amazing. I also couple them through the HA-2 DAC by OPPO when using the iPhone and iTunes downloads. The result is very good.

  8. Wonderful quality

    Posted by Terry on 4th Jan 2016

    Oppo continues it's excellent quality with the PM-3 headphones. I was nervous spending so much on headphones and within 30 seconds of listening to a movie was thrilled with the detail in the sound.

    My only complaint is fake leather on 600$ headphone is a shame. No reason it couldn't have real leather and replaceable ear pads for that price range.

    All that aside....Wonderful product

  9. Excellent quality headphones

    Posted by Felix on 1st Jan 2016

    These are fantastic headphones, very comfortable, top quality sound, excellent range and a very portable package (especially for planar magnetic headphones). The only cons I have to these are that the soundstage is significantly smaller than my AKG550s (also closed back), and that the earpads are not removable. Otherwise they would get a 5-star. I chose these over the hifiman he400i and the audeze el-8 due to their comfort, portability,and sound quality

  10. Great sound quailty

    Posted by Unknown on 31st Dec 2015

    Excellent value
