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

Truly excellent sound - but cable is fragile.

  • 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: 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.

  • Summary: I bought these to wear running. I already have a pair of P3s, and find the sound and build quality of them to be excellent, so after trying some cheaper sports headphones to little avail, decided to bite the bullet and buy these C5s.

Sound is not perfect. Overall package is great.

  • Summary: For me a decision to buy these is going to based on what you're after. You can get better audio quality for the money, but can you get a better complete package? We'll start with audio as .. well.. that's what they're for.

Great Headphones but Not Robust

John M, Amazon
10 January 2013
  • Summary: After using them for 12 months commuting I read a review recommending them for training (PC Mag). Within 6 weeks the volume/pause buttons on the cable stopped working. I opened it, cleaned out the moisture and sweat and resealed it with glue.
