Crystal clear audio
C5 Series 2 contain a micro-porous filter that acts as a sonic diffuser, improving the clarity, depth and range of your music.
High definition drive units
C5 Series contain bespoke 9.2mm dynamic transducer and produce remarkable bass extension.
Consistent listening experience
Tungsten steel weights balance the speaker units towards the ear, so you'll get clean, consistent audio no matter how bumpy your ride.
The cushioned loop design of C5 Series 2 can be adjusted to the natural shape of your ear for a secure fit, keeping the headphones firmly in place.
"The Secure Loop design holds the headphones in place and provides good cushioning for moderate workout routines. Keep these handy for those short times on the treadmill" - Best Workout Headphones
"The Bowers & Wilkins C5 S2's sound consistently riveted my attention. That, more than anything, is what seperates the great from the merely good headphones. The C5 S2 is more transparent, clear, and accurate, so the best recordings reveal more of their true sound."
"This update to B&W's acclaimed C5 earphones includes the same ingenious design as the original. The biggest difference in this year's model is one you'll hear, not see. The redesigned 9.2 mm driver's produce a more natural, open sound that'll accommodate everything from gypsy swing to vegan hardcore."
"The C5 Series 2 is a standout among in-ear headphones. Bowers & Wilkins, a British manufacturer best known for its high-end loudspeakers, makes a fine-finish statement with the C5 Series 2's tungsten and aluminium touches."
"These revised in-ears match premium aesthetics with a superb sound stage to deliver an unparalleled audio experience."
"Bowers & Wilkins released the great C5 In-Ear Headphones in 2011 - three years later, the enhanced C5 Series 2 have become our top pick of the year. Both the look and audio of the headphones, which were already impressive, received upgrades in this top-notch pair."
"Bowers & Wilkins' first generation C5 earbuds were easily among our favourites in years past, and the second-generation model adds improved clarity at low volumes and high volumes thanks to a redesigned dynamic driver. You won't find a better pair of in-ear headphones."
"The most comfortable in-ear headphones I've ever tried and also some of the best sounding. Rich, full bass that’s not boomy. Clear, open treble that’s not harsh. Unique perfect design"
These C5 Series 2 Bowers and Wilkins headphones are the best I've ever had in my entire life!

Could not expect more from a set of earbuds, the C5 Series 2s are outstanding in sound reproduction and build quality.

The product has not impressed me lien has been the case with other B&W products I own or have heard. It sounds a bit flat and uninspired. It looks good but not exceptional. In short, it dissappoints a bit. I own some B&W Diamond series speakers that are truly exceptional. I also own a B&W subwoofer that is excellent. As well as a pair of P7 headphones that I use on every trip without exception. They excel. I also own a T7 that is excellent. These headphones are truly a step down from all of these items.

never tried these earbuds in a store, but was confident in B&W's quality and reputation and my own history of products purchased. these C5 earbuds on first listen were startlingly 'bright' and rather disappointing. perhaps it was the kind of music I was listening to.....
I was used to Beats with a bit more bass and fullness. I am impressed with these C5s for quieter vocal and purer sound reproduction but that is not what I always listen to-- especially through earbuds! I will use them and am pretty happy with them but they are not my favorite 'go-to' set, unfortunately. I do like the cord-loop design for staying in the ear-- it was primarily why I took a chance on buying them and am very happy with them in this regard.

The headphones are not comfortable at all and they do not stay in my ears and the cord is not as flexible as other less expensive in-ear headphones I've purchased in the past. I plan to return these for a refund.

Absolutely love these earbuds. At first I thought the right earbud was quieter than the left, so I was looking up ways on the web to see if this was an issue anywhere. Turns out, a day later, I just plugged it in my ear wrong; now both sides work harmoniously together. I love how deep the bass gets!

I'm hearing the music as it was intended, with subtleties that I was missing before. And generally not a fan of in ear phones, but these are perfectly comfortable, and secure.

The C5 Series 2 headphones deliver excellent sound quality and a comfortable fit. After receiving the headphones I needed to switch to the next larger size of ear inserts (included in the package) to achieve complete sound isolation. I am now very happy with the immersive sound from the headphones, complete isolation from background noise, superior full range response including bass, and the fact that the headphones remain securely in my ears even during intense workouts. Highly recommended!

Best headphones I've ever owned; the only reason I didn't say they're excellent us because in the past they haven't lasted me very long before dying.
