What Reviewers Say:
If you're like most people that own these earbuds, you'll soon be in love with them:
- The Bowers & Wilkins C5 S2 have made me, for the first time in my somewhat mature life (I'm in my mid-30's), truly aware of the incredible talent and skill possessed by classical musicians, whose music I have long loved, but whose personalities have remained hidden behind the tragic fog of past technological limitations. The first gen C5's never accomplished this (more on them later). For the first time, while listening to Mozart's string quartet No. 22 in Bb, the Larghetto movement, I not only felt as though I was physically in the presence of truly talented musicians (the 1 gen C5's did this Ok), I actually empathized with the unbelievable control and self-discipline they must have in order to record a perfect cut. Every possible subtle nuance was clearly exposed and had me on the edge of my seat during the piano to forte transitions hoping that these masterful musicians would pull off the twists and turns, not only without error, but with that kind of artistic grace that leaves one breathless, and because of the equal amount of commitment given by the people at B&W in the production of these headphones I was allowed to experience music unlike I have ever done before. The quality is on the level of a real life performance. You feel as though you are not only there present in the hall with the musicians, but that you are sitting there right next to them, feeling the performance as close to the musicians (in soul & spirit) as you can possibly get. It brings you to a heightened state of awareness.
- It truly deserves its full 5 stars!
- Sound is fantastic. Compared these to beats in ear headphones as well as Bose and the performance is great. Bass is strong, and mid tones are super clear. Definitely recommend.
