"A warm and lively sound that will make the most of any genre. More gorgeous to look at than a pair of in-ear headphones has any right to be."
"The most comfortable in-ear headphones and some of the best sounding. Rich, full bass that’s not boomy. Clear, open treble that’s not harsh. Unique perfect design" - Best 5 Travel Headphones
On first trying the headphones, I struggled to get them to stay in my ears but after persevering and trying all the included ear buds, I found the right fit and with the best size of ear buds. This is a very important step and B&W should emphasise this more.
The quality of the music was amazing and I just wanted to keep using them. I used a CD of Mike Oldfield, Tres Lunas, as a test piece and first noticed the improvement in bass clarity over my previous headphones from Shure. But the whole spectrum sounded more detailed, natural and involving. I am now looking forward to playing my favourite music again to hear and enjoy the big improvements.

Had the series 1 version of these headphones which where excellent, got these series 2 and they sound superb. I have other products from B&W and they maybe pricey but you get what you pay for!

The only issue I have is that the earphones don't sit naturally enough, I feel the constant need to readjust in one ear. Probably says something about my ears rather than the product but I never had this issue before.

Dreadful ear fit. Just awful, and the sound isn't good either. There is a huge excess of sound spilling out of the C5 so people nearby can hear everything. Truly awful product.

Love the sound and find them comfortable. They do not cut out as much noise as other in-ear phones I've used (possibly due to the Micro Porous Filter?). The wiring feels a bit thin and fragile, but no problems as yet - I'll have to wait and see how durable they are.

Excellent tonal range and very comfortable to wear

Sounds Quality is good and clear as expected but they don't fit well for small ears and the fitting design somehow is more annoying and bit painful for the ears.

Best sound quality, best fit as used when driving, don't repeatedly fall out of ears as with other models and makes
