Two most common words that you can find online about Harbeth P3ESR are: Magical midrange!
The-Ear wrote: “It turns out that what the Harbeth does with female vocals, so it does with men. Their superiority in the midrange means that they are made to reproduce the human voice in the most honest way.“
Inner Fidelity highlighted: “P3ESR was ’voiced’ for voice, and the midrange really is as natural as I've heard from any small speaker.“
Stereophile wrote: “Harbeth's P3ESR is one of those speakers that gets the overall balance of what it does very right. If this system were to be placed behind an acoustically transparent curtain, few who heard it would believe that they were listening to a system costing less than $5000, or to speakers as small as these. Those listeners definitely would get fooled again—and to the benefit of their enjoyment of their music collections.“
Harbeth P3ESR loudspeakers received many awards – among others The Absolute Sound 2016 Golden Ear Award, The Absolute Sound 2013 Editors’ Choice Awards and Stereophile Recommended Component.
