Killer sound, great fit

trusty32, CNET
7 February 2015
  • 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.

great if you don't need to move your head much

  • 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.
  • Pros: great sound if they could stay in place
  • Cons: won't stay in ear if there's any movement.

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.

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: 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.
