Best ear phones under $200.00

RG, Crutchfield
16 October 2013
  • Summary: I believe the Bowers & Wilkins C5 are the best ear phones for under $200.00 available today. Sound quality is superb. They have a wide dynamic range and provide a full sound experience with all music types. I have tried many ear phones and the Bowers & Wilkins C5 are the best single driver ear phones I have heard. Another great aspect of these ear phones is the strength of the cable.
  • Pros: Great sound quality. very comfortable to wear

Good, not great

Rese, Crutchfield
17 May 2012
  • Summary: They're good, not great. Once they are seated in your ear the right way, the noise cancellation and sound quality are outstanding. The down side to them is that they slip out fairly easily, and any change in position changes the sound quality almost instantly. They're not the greatest for exercising, either, because any change in your head position from upright makes them shift in your ear.
  • Pros: Great sound quality. Allows use of your phone unlike other noise-cancelling ear buds.
  • Cons: Sound quality is very dependent on position, and getting them to stay put is too tricky and unreliable.

Perfect Fit, Private Concert

Vik, Crutchfield
17 August 2011
  • Summary: This is a first impression review. Firstly, the fit is just perfect. My ears are small and the smallest earbud tips work the best. BTW, you need to tug pretty hard to remove currently installed tips. The infinitely adjustable loop is probably the coolest and most useful feature. I've always had problems with earphones falling out and I know these won't. They provide some pretty good passive surrounding noise isolation (not active-cancellation).

  • Summary: I've literally just switched to these after my fourth pair of Denon AH-C560R's in 10 months. So far I'm very impressed. Great snug fit which feels secure and the sound itself is very clear, detailed and, with the tracks I've listened to, perfect in the richness. I've also previously owned the Shure SE310's and E3C's which were good but lacked the low-end these headphones can deliver, also the memory cable seemed to split after about 18 months so hopefully these will last...
  • Pros: Complete immersion in music.
  • Cons: rubber ear bud broke when removing it to swap to my size but no big deal...

  • 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. I had alot of problems with the fabric filter on the Denon's so the metal design of the B&W is reassuring but it does mean a slightly harsh top end.
  • Pros: Build Quality; Sound Quality; Strong Bass Response
  • Cons: Headset Controls

  • Excerpt: Качество звука .. Пока не понял, прогреваю! Детализация лучше чем на сенхайзер 400, в басах разница не на 7000 рублей. Beats басистее!
  • Pros: Качество исполнения Упаковка Удобно носить
  • Cons: Штекер 3,5 который поменяли и в моем случае он остался прямым, но стал больше с длинной резинкой которая якобы предотвращает от перетерания, но на самом деле мешается в карманах! Не лучшая шумоизоляция, подбираю резинки пока.

  • Excerpt: Этим бы наушникам ценник на 2000 опустить – и они бы порвали всех... А так платить 9000 руб. за пульт с посредственным микрофоном и неясными кнопками не хочется. По звуку же C5 идеальны, если вам нравятся басы. Главное, правильно подобрать размер затычки. Изоляция совершенная, в метро не просачивается ни звука.
  • Pros: Звук, изоляция
  • Cons: Пульт

Super Sound, könnten etwas bequemer sitzen

rxr, Amazon

  • Summary: Die B&W C5 sehen natürlich sehr gut aus. Der viel wichtigere Klang kann auch überzeugen. Lediglich der Trage-Kompfort ist - zumindest in meinen Ohren - nicht optimal. Obwohl mit 1,80 nicht klein bin und mir meine Ohren relativ normalgroß vorkommen drücken die sehr großen Ohrstöpsel schon nach kurzer Zeit merklich. Für kleinere Ohren vermutlich weniger zu empfehlen.
