    Good products for a limited time though...

    • Written by from JENKS

    Look. I am not a lier, I am not another company just leaving a bad review, I'm like any other person out there and I love music. Music is my life. Spending almost four hundred dollars a week on iTunes for apps and music is what I do haha and I wanted some good headphones to listen to all the music I have. I bought these December 30th 2011 and now it's in almost the second week of January and the right side of the headphone has completely stopped working. I am not going to lie. I am mad. I spent over 170 dollars on these. I usually just but skull cants but since everyone has said the beats are great and I have never heard of these in my life but a ladie at the apple store in Santa Ana, CA recommended these for me so I took it into consideration since she did have the beats and said they weren't great. But If you do like a good sound go for theses but for what I have went through and now having to return them, I will be researching more headphones.

    not that great!

    • Written by from Toronto

    I own the P5s and I absolutely LOVE them. But i was looking for something a little more convenient for everyday use so i thought that the C5s would do. I am really disappointed however. I don't find the sound to be nearly as good as the P5s and they are not the most convenient in-ear headphones. The secure loops is a good idea but it get's pretty annoying after a while... Too bad really...

    Fabulous sound, however too difficult to keep in ear

    • Written by from Knoxville

    I did research & the sound is tremendous....big 3 things for me: sound, fits well in ear, & stays in ear while I'm active.
    Sound--1-10: with 1 lowest & 10 most awesomeness: 9.7 awesome!!
    Fits well in ear: 1-10 with 1 lowest & 10 most awesomeness: 5
    Once you figure it out it's alright in there...not uncomfortable, but it's just awkward.
    Stays in the ear while active: 1-10: with 1 lowest & 10 most awesomeness: 2. Unfortunately this reason is why I couldn't keep the earphones...if someone looked at me funny they would come out...that's exaggerating a smidge...but seriously if I was at the gym moving around: the earphones wouldn't stay in my ear....& for the price & the lack of "staying put in my ear while working out" ability: these won't be recommended...Sorry Bowers & Wilkins

    Very good sound, but uncomfortable

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    I find the fit very uncomfortable. Also, the 3 button mic is not very easy to use. Though sound is very good, I would not buy again.

    Wasted time and cash

    • Written by from Pleasant Grove

    No apologies here. This is the most overpriced set of earbuds I have ever
    purchased. The sound was good, but it ends there.
    •With the adjustable loop the earbud comes away from inside my ear and allows ambient noise in.
    •The wires are so stiff, they stick out and snag everything.
    •The buttons are not easy to locate and use for phone calls. The only reference is the slight depression in the bar.
    •The clamshell carry case is useless. I can find no logical way to use it. By the time you stuff everything in, you risk zipping up a wire.
    •How can a company justify selling these for so much money. I was ashamed that I spent the money after I did. Even though the sound was good, for $179.00, they should knock my socks off like the P5 over the ear B&W's do.

    Where do I go from here? I guess my $39. V-Moda from Costco will need to last a little longer. I just wish they were 3 button

    Not for running

    • Written by from San Diego

    Bought these to replace my Bang & Olufsen ear set 3 during running. The seal in ear makes any cord movement echo into ears. Cord is too short causing loops to become loose. Not for running. Great headphones if not running. Sound is amazing, but not for running. Returned.

    Headphones Never Stayed In My Ears For More Than 3 Minutes

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    I was so excited to try these headphones. However, I was never able to get the headphones to stay in my ears for more than 3 minutes. The loop is an innovative idea that's very hard to use.

    My review

    • Written by from Hoboken

    I just got mine today. I was very excited to see what I may be missing with some premium headphones so I rushed out to get these. I must not be the audiophile that I thought I was. Admittedly I have only used the stock headphones that have come with my iPods and iPhones. I really can't hear a difference. The silicone cones that these and much cheaper headphones come with do block out all outside noise (passive noise cancellation, but so do my 1.99 silicone ear plugs that I use when it's too noisy to sleep. The sound quality is a bit flat and seems to be missing some base, which I was hoping for. Mine are going back. They certainly aren't 179.00 better than the ones I already paid for when I bought my iPhone at full retail. Other minor complaints - Made in China. Really? I think that's not good for our country or for quality products. There seems to be no eco friendly efforts that went into the product or packaging. Maybe none of this matters to you but it definitely matters to me. The packaging could have been as elegant and impressive with 75% less of it and using recycled and recyclable materials, possibly allowing for a bit less of a sharp price point. The product itself could have been made of recycled material. If it is made of recycled material there wasn't much of an effort made to tout it. I've been listening to the C5's for 30 mins now and I'm already going back to my ear buds. I had such high hopes for this product but to me it's not worth more than 39.99.
