    "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
    Sound & Vision - April 2015
    "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."
    Wired - February 2015
    "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."
    Chicago Tribune - January 2015
    "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."
    Complex - December 2014
    "These revised in-ears match premium aesthetics with a superb sound stage to deliver an unparalleled audio experience."
    iLounge - November 2014
    "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."
    BGR - November 2014
    "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."
    Forbes - June 2013
    "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"
