In Malaysia, OPPO may be known primarily for its smartphones but in foreign markets, OPPO Digital is renowned in the audio visual space. Its award-winning Blu-Ray players are second to none and its personal audio products are, well, you’ll need to listen to appreciate them. Good news to local audiophiles, the OPPO PM-3 Closed-Back Planar Magnetic Headphones is here.

The OPPO PM-3 is stylish and impeccably built — a beautiful blend of portability and audio performance. Weighing just over 283g, it is the world’s lightest closed-back planar magnetic headphones. The closed-back design provides ultimate isolation from the outside world, and reducing sound leakage from the headphones.

Hearing is believing

So how did OPPO manage to pack such great sound into this pair of lightweight headphones? The OPPO PM-3 uses a planar magnetic driver that’s derived from the EISA award-winning PM-1 headphones. Its breakthrough 7-layer double-side voice coil diaphragm design and FEM-optimised neodymium magnet system both reduce the weight of the planar magnetic drivers. All this while maintaining superior sound quality and high sensitivity.


In the PM-3’s planar magnetic driver, sound is generated by a thin and light diaphragm that is driven in a symmetric pull-push manner. The magnetic system and conductor patterns are optimised for maximum sensitivity and consistency. Therefore, the diaphragm can generate stable and linear piston-like vibrations, ensuring phase coherence and high resolution performance with minimal distortion.

The PM-3’s small driver is superior to traditional planar magnetic technology which is difficult to drive and heavy weight. The 55mm diameter round driver is suited for a lightweight closed-back design like the PM-3.



Natural and balanced sound with deep bass, smooth midrange and clear treble is what’s to be expected from the PM-3. And from first impressions, I’ll have to say you’ll need to hear it to believe it. I found the PM-3 highly impressive with superior clarity, nuance and balance.

Pricing and availability

The OPPO PM-3 is available nationwide at a retail price of MYR1,619.
