B&W C5

Dan Miles, CNET
3 October 2011
  • 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.
  • Pros: Build Quality; Sound Quality; Strong Bass Response
  • Cons: Headset Controls

Don't Bother

  • Summary: Avoid Sarana International LTD and these headphones, mine developed a fault in the left ear bud after 6 months and trying to get them repaired or replaced was a waste of time

A disappointment

Olly, Amazon

  • 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!

Truly excellent sound - but cable is fragile.

MM, Amazon

  • Summary: I love these headphones. They sound absolutely fantastic once you learn how to fit them properly - find the right pad size, and the technique of tugging the top of your ear as you push the bud into your ear, to create a firm and lasting seal.

  • Summary: Excellent sound apart from the bass being abit over powering. Ear fitting is good with the different sizes buds and also held in by adjustable cord loops into the ear, light and comfortable.

  • Summary: had 2 pairs. both went faulty within a month of the warranty expiry. The cable by the jack plug is the issue. buy in John Lewis, you get a 2 year warranty there. i would have been £150 better off.

Fantastic product!

Jonathan K Tan, Amazon

  • Summary: Headphones sit comfortably in my ears with the adjustable loop allowing me to determine how tightly they sit within my ears. Like most B&W products, the sound and build quality are quite amazing, with a lovely metal finish the cap the earbuds.

Amazing until one of the earphones stops working

mothernorth, Amazon

  • Summary: Amazing until one of the earphones stops working. Has happened once to me and I've read about plenty of other owners having the same issue. To their credit BW replaced my set very quickly, for free, and they've been fine since.

Truly amazing sound, no question about that

Andrew B., Amazon
26 August 2014
  • Summary: Truly amazing sound, no question about that...... BUT be advised.. if you have an iPhone 5s, the volume and mic control on the wire isn't compatible.... If your thinking of upgrading to an iPhone 6 at a later date, it could be the same... who knows... I'm waiting for B&W to bring the next ones out
