Another fantastic B&W Product
I've been a committed audio hobbyist for the past few years and have sampled many different types of on-ear, over-ear, and in-ear I've been a committed audio hobbyist for the past few years and have sampled many different types of on-ear, over-ear, and in-ear headphones, and these are some of the best buds that I've ever used. The C5's sound spectrum is complete across all levels; the accurate, punchy bass, smooth mids, and the open treble work together to provide for a wonderful listening experience. The passive audio-isolation manages to mask nearly all of the ambient noise around you. The fit of the buds might take a little getting used to with the cord that keeps the buds in the ear, but the adjustment curve is short and worth it; the C5's stay put better than any other bud that I've used. …

This Blows Me AWAY!!
These are my favorite pair of headphones by far. I listen to all types of music ranging from classical Wolfgang, to Ne-Yo, to B.I. These are my favorite pair of headphones by far. I listen to all types of music ranging from classical Wolfgang, to Ne-Yo, to B.I.G., as well as foreign artists. I need Headphones that are not orientated towards one genre or another. Being that these headphones are so well balanced, i am able to hear the frictional tug of each string with the bow of the violin. Feel the bass rumbling through my entire body as i play sweat.
These are by far also the most comfortable headphones i have in my arsenal. (Even better than the Klipsch patented oval shaped ones, and those are wonderful) I have worn these to sleep like they were regular form-fitting earplugs.
I also run everywhere i go. I have a very active life style so i need headphones that wont fall out every time i decide to run across the street to catch a light or a bus. With the secure loop, i am able to do just that. And may i add, it is also very comfortable.
(May i add you can headbang with these?!) …

The secure loop is a very welcome innovation for keeping them actually *in* your ear. Sound quality is wonderful throughout the full range from low to highs. They do take a few hours listening to really start to sing, but that's normal for audio products. …

not for everyone
I bought the B&W C5 for 2 reasons. I wanted a really good sounding in-ear headphones. B&W has a good reputation for their produc I bought the B&W C5 for 2 reasons. I wanted a really good sounding in-ear headphones. B&W has a good reputation for their products and these DO sound very good. the 2nd main reason: I need a pair that stays put in my ears when I'm at the gym or doing any outdoor activities. for me, this is where they fell way short. I was intrigued by the design. seemed like a good way to solve my problem of the in-ear pods that always fall out or need to be secured constantly. I tried all the different sized "bud" adaptors that came with but nothing solved the problem. running on a treadmill, doing sit-ups or even mowing the lawn, these C5s never stay in. I really wish there could've be someway to try before buying I could've gone with a different brand. again, these do sound really good BUT given my main reason as fit I'm only giving these 2 stars. …
