    Beautiful sound which does not last.

    I am currently on my second pair of B&W C5 In-Ear Headphones (I still had hope the second time) and I must say that roughly 12 months good use has ended with another catastrophic disappointment. Do not let this review be entirely misleading - they are exceptional headphones. However, even under my (rather careful) ownership, they stop working; it all starts with one of the ear phone pieces failing to produce sound unless one fiddles about with the wire (bending and twisting it etc.) This eventually stops helping and the earphones become dishearteningly useless. I call upon the technical masters at B&W to sort this out! You are marvellous people and should be proud of creating such wonderful sound - however this vital problem must be fixed.

    I urge you all to think twice about purchasing these.

    Very happy

    I have been using these for several days now and am very happy with them.

    I tried some B&O first and just could not get on with them from a fitting point of view (long to fit and not comfortable after a while).

    The B&W are easy to insert and stay in very well (the loop works well for me), experimenting and choosing the right bud affects the fit and then also sound which is then excellent.
