The Bower’s and Wilkin’s C5 Series 2 in-ear Headphones Sweepstakes

Register to win a set of Bower’s and Wilkin’s C5 Series 2 in-ear Headphones (MSRP $179.99) we are giving away.

According to the company:

C5 Series 2 in-ear headphones bring you amazingly natural acoustics and fit so snugly you’ll hardly be aware you’re wearing them. These headphones use a new 9.2mm dynamic driver, and have been optimized to deliver bass that’s powerful yet precisely controlled, resulting in a more natural, open and detailed sound.

I could really use these.

I am curious to see if they have improved the overall frequency response from the first C5. Good luck to everyone!

Just going by your measurements they look quite nice. Big bass thwack that calms itself down before it gets to mud up the vocals and well extended mids that blend smoothly into the treble region, with almost ruler flat treble up to 10kHz and only a slight rolloff thereafter.

I really don't like when a headphone rolls off the mids at about 1-2kHz, and so many do. I know a lot of people like warm mids but to me that region feels like the place where all the air and consonant detail lies in the vocals, especially female vocals.

I also find it very hard to find an IEM that doesn't drop off sharply after 10kHz. Even many high end UIEMs like the SE846 seem to run away sharply in that region, robbing you of that little bit of sparkle.

A giveaway is always nice and I've never heard a B&W headphone so that would be interesting.

KG_Jag's picture

Would love to give them a spin.

Gandasaputra's picture

Interesting; I'd like to hear their new version of C5 and hope they had tuned it toward balanced sound signature.

justinholiday's picture

If I win, I hope these fit my ears. I've had many problems with in-ear headphones.

And winning these headphones will surely support the notion.

I didn't have a Christmas present so winning this would be nice.

DaveinSM's picture

I could use a pair of higher end IEMs. I've had a bunch of them including Sennheiser CX300 IIs, but I can't honestly say that I can tell a huge difference between most of them.

I just happened upon your site and really enjoyed your reviews. Keep up the good work.

I noticed an inconsistency in the rules for the contest: "Drawing: This Sweepstakes will have one (1) drawing and three (1) winner"


sboyer1971's picture

Yes, please.

Bobs Your Uncle's picture

Should I win this sweepstake, I hope to answer a nagging question: Is Bowers dedicated to the right ear, or is that the proper domain of Wilkins?

Further, should ear placement be reversed, would there be any discernible impact upon audible frequencies within the fabric of space-time?

Thanks for the opportunity to win the B&W C5 series 2's. I've been very interested in these and would love the chance to win a pair. Thanks.

jstachowski's picture

I'd be interested to see if these have a good fit to my ears.

Phi's picture

What more can I say, I've been on the hunt for a sub-$200 IEM that fits nicely into my ears securely for almost three years now. I shied away from the first C5 due to the bloated bass. I hear Series 2 is way better.

Merck's picture

I would like some of these.

I really appreciate you continuing to give us chances to win gear. I really appreciate it.
