Summary: These are my favorite in ear headphones by far, even improving upon the original C5. Overall, can't recommend this enough to those that enjoy listening to music in a personal way. Ensure you download a high bit rate because it's the difference between pleasant listening and being blown away.
Pros: Everything from bottomed out bass, to high treble comes through perfectly with a tight fit that keeps other sound out.
Cons: After wearing them for more than an hour your ear canal can get a little tired.
Summary: I bought these ear buds for work out/yard work. while the sound produced was very good the fit was not. very little head movement would cause the buds to fall out. I tried all the different sized buds that came with as well as adjusting the "in ear loops". nothing worked.
For my taste - it's the best there is in the market for a relatively adequa

Summary: Beautiful sound. Deep bass. Very fun to play with iPodom. Bitrate is not below 320. 5:00 warming and all the tools are clearly separated, as if in a studio. Very comfortable. Good insulation from the street.
Summary: i really want to embrace this earphone, the build quality is some of the best of all universals, earpiece is full metal and just feel solid. the loop is a good design for me. and if i don’t want to use the loop i can make it small and it work like a earbud.
Summary: I bought these to replace my beloved A-Jays four. I needed something with the integrated in-line ipod/iphone controls, but with a bit better audio-quality, and some that may not pop out as easily as the JAYS.
Pros: Excellent audio, Noise Isolation, and good looks!
Cons: Goofy "secure loop" system, hard to clean, awkward ipod/iphone controls, EXPENSIVE, and a tiny carry pouch.
Summary: I own a pair and love them. I am surprised there is not more online buzz regarding these. I mostly listen to music during activity but had difficulty finding a pair of active headphones that approached audiophile quality until I heard the C5. The sound is clean, accurate and full.
Pros: stays in place/maintains seal during even strenuous activity; signature natural, transparent B&W sound with a complementary bass presence
Summary: Having moved from similar priced Denon C751 headphones I have to say I'm very impressed with these B&W's. The bass response is just as strong but with much more clarity and coherence with the mid range.
Summary: Having owned headphones from Bose to other B&W headphones I thought I would give these a shot. Packaging was lovely and gave you a sense these are high in quality. It was a pain to get everything open though!
