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: 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 did not buy on Amazon - as I found a large High St store with a 20% discount. I really wanted to try these before buying and went to a high end audio shop, but alas, as other stores said, they will not allow testing for hygiene reasons.
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.
Summary: Over elaborate packing which is actually quyite difficult to undo and destined for landfill is not a good start to the experience. Mangd to get a good fit in one ear, the other ear defies any combination fo the 4 supplied sizes of insert which by the way are quite hard to get on and off - a good...
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.
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.
Summary: Final year university student reviewing these here. I purchased these earphones from ebay, for the price of £70. The authenticity of these was confirmed from Bowers and Wilkins customer services.
