A enjoyable surprise and really value the revenue. Let me preface this overview by stating just one very simple detail: i am not a basshead, but i liked the bass on these headphonesif you, like me, were wanting for a pair of top quality midrange iems, far better than buds but not as pricey as multi-armature-driver selections, then appear no additional. I was a small anxious about the quantity of bass on the c5s supplied their popularity and the typical pattern of tech providers to introduce more mid bass response as a counter to small fidelity songs and to mask inadequate treble functionality. But let me established just one factor straight, these are not beats. These are a class over, a business that is very well versed in the art of combining all bands of the seem spectrum. B&w speakers are 1 of the only massive consumer brands than can seriously be thought of to maintain any body weight in the higher close audio market and as these they have a reputation for good quality. Compared with beats and bose, for whom high priced advertising and marketing can make up for sub-common efficiency (at their price details), the b&ws perform excellently. Mids are strong and perfectly staged for a iem, specially just one utilizing only a person dynamic driver. I was nicely astonished that i failed to truly feel much too confined when comparing to my sennshd598, highs are also sharp, perhaps a small shiny in some tracks, but these are aimed at a large scale purchaser market place and not to audio purists. Most importantly bass is excellent. It is presented more than i am applied to but it is carried out so in a controlled way. Compared with the muddy beats/bose bass the c5 produced controlled, higher-effects, deep-extending and distortion no cost lower tones. Indeed no headphone will ever be a subwoofer, but at the very least these can give you a excellent come to feel for the bass tones without having drowning you in weak high quality muddy bass. Lastly i should position out that though rather speaking these are pretty high priced, you have to concede a selected amount to the fact that b&w have generated a client product and demand a ‘consumer focused’ quality for the ‘exclusivity’.

This it the very best audio at any time in the rate zone. I individually experienced other models, only akg at the comparable price worthy of it,beats, sony,and so forth at the exact cost was actually much absent driving, simply just place it this way.

Purchased these from amazon terrific assistance, always purchased shure headphones in the past, normally experienced problems with the relationship at the headphones with the insulation coming a way etc. These b &w are a sound connection and very protected in your ear, seem as fantastic as the shure and a little bit much less expensive.

Comments from buyers

“Innovative design, great sound. Impressive value for money!, Found ones that don’t fall out at last!, Fabulous piece of gear”

I have owned quite a few in-ear headphones, klipsch x10i, x7i, atomic floyd, sennheiser, sony. Right until now none arrived near to the x10is, but the c5 is far better by fairly a way. They are notably great with rock. The seem has far more power than the x10is and the bass is greater described. If like me you are conscious of individuals all over you listening to (and receiving irritated by) your audio these are fairly excellent but not as peaceful as the x10is. These are a no brainier at this selling price, by far the very best in ears i’ve at any time experienced.

These ended up bought as an update for an ageing pair of greatest ears superfi 5 extended bass headphones, and i have to say that from the off i was amazed with them. I actually adore the loop of wire made use of to protected the headphones in put, some folks uncover this uncomfortable, but i have modest ears and have had complications in the past with some layouts slipping out, which, to me, is much more discouraging than anything at all else when it comes to headphone style and design malfunctionthe seem from these is very awesome, much too. Ethereal with some really pleasant punch to the bass – but not also overpoweringi have a one, small grumble about these, and which is to do with the in-line distant. It may well just be me, but i come across skipping tracks employing it needs the application of pressure to be extremely accurate – i generally appear to be accidentally turning the volume up as an alternative of skipping forward or backwards by way of my playlists.

Certainly great sound – but cable is fragile. . They seem definitely amazing after you find out how to in shape them correctly – discover the suitable pad dimensions, and the procedure of tugging the major of your ear as you thrust the bud into your ear, to produce a firm and lasting seal. The only down-side is the cable seems to break internally after a certain amount of use, creating a person or equally headphones to all of a sudden come to be one/tenth as loud. I had this occur right after 2 months of possessing a pair, and it was changed for free. But now the substitute has failed in the similar way immediately after one year of use (out of guarantee). So i think i’m heading to have to check out some thing else. (i would give five stars if not for this style flaw).

Great sound, with the hefty price tag. . I bought these last october as a replacement for a pair that broke. Boy were they worth every pennyi have used these nearly every day since i purchased them. They are totally comfortable, and (so far) have held up very well. The sound quality is phenomenal, performing very well at high or low volumes, with good performance on treble and bass. They are noise cancelling without feeling stuffy and they don’t leak at all while they are in yor ears. My partner has a pair of similarly fancy bose ear buds and she always comments that mine are much much better. If you can find a deal on these go for them– i haven’t regretted this purchase for a moment. Top quality sound, absolutely worth the price.

Truly excellent sound – but cable is fragile. . 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. The only down-side is the cable seems to break internally after a certain amount of use, causing one or both headphones to suddenly become 1/10th as loud. I had this happen after 2 months of owning a pair, and it was replaced for free. But now the replacement has failed in the same way after 1 year of use (out of warranty). So i think i’m going to have to try something else. (i would give 5 stars if not for this design flaw).

Excellent sound apart from the bass being abit over powering. 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.

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. Noise cancelling isn’t necessary – these reduce ambient noise enough.

Amazing until one of the earphones stops working. 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. However i’m slightly concerned it might happen again and they’ll be out of the warranty period. Sound = truly fantastic and well worth the money. Cables are strong and thick and don’t tangle as easily as other earphones.

Simply the best i have ever had. I am a big guy and buds generally do not fit or stay in my ears. These certainly do, whether i am spinning at the gym or out and about. The sound is superb and i have no cable noise. I have a bear of bose noise-cancelling headphones. When these are in and on, the nc effect is the same. I am clumsy a d forgetful and lose and destroy earphones like there’s no tomorrow. I’ve tried them all: these are the best and i still have them. Their performance means music on the go is now a regular feature of my life again.

“all the others are gimmicks”. I have been frustrated over the years by in-ear headphones. Some have had excellent sound but have been tortuously uncomfortable, some (many) had extremely poor sound quality, others simply unusable. What i need is a combination of sound quality, a reasonable (although not complete) sound isolation and comfort. With this in mind i visited a store in london and was faced by a wall of boxes containing every in-ear phone under the sun. Fortunately a young man (a customer in the shop) recognised my bafflement and advised me to buy these stating that: all the others are gimmicks. I took his advice and have not regretted it. Simply put, these are by far the finest in-ear phones i have ever used. (i listed on classical music of all sorts and travel on the tube using these with absolute pleasure),.

Found ones that don’t fall out at last. 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. I must have weird ears as i have dozens of pairs of in ear headphones/headsets. And none stay in while walking let alone exercising. My goto reference headphone is the multi award winning akg k451. When i first put in the b&w c5 i was – oh my, £120 down the drain. . But, experiment, be patient with the supplied tips, fitting and wow. I like bass, but had to turn down my eq settings a little.

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. First off, they really do stay in my ears firmly (typical in ear buds fall out walking, let alone doing anything else). The sound quality is good, but only if they make a tight fit in your ear, otherwise there’s no bass at all – even after trying different ear buds, it’s difficult to make and keep that tight fit. Comfort wise, they are fine for my 60min or less run, and after (only) two weeks of use show no signs of starting to slip. As others have mentioned, the cable is made from something fairly stiff, and doesn’t hang well, and so does tend to knock around some, transmitting those knocks into your ear. So while there’s no question that these are better than the £35 philips phones i had before, overall they’re not as good as the (obviously different) p3s.
