Yea for some reason I feel C5 will work better on headphone or high impedance IEM.

Thanks for the excellent review!  I agree with your opinion of the C5 and I enjoy the sound through my SE530 and SR80i.  To my ears, bass boost is just right for both of my headphones.

See if you can find a silver 3.5mm to 3.5 mm. I'm sure there is something on ebay at a reasonable price. I'll b building my own. I have some braided silver coming by next week and my C3 should be here tomorrow. For now I'll have to make one out of copper wire.

Excellent review randomkid! Your description of the C5's sound correspond to my impressions. It's a worthy companion for the O2 as a more portable headphone amplifier.

Thanks everyone.

And thanks to john for providing me with the C5.

Silver 3.5 interconnect is best

I would say I agree with you on everything completely.  I don't have any other portable amps to compare the mids to, so I can't say for sure, but if they are forward it is very slight as you said.  I can tell comparing my main reference amps that it is extremely neutral though.  And all the other points you mentioned are spot on.  Excellent amp, highly recommended.  I'm one advocate for a two way bass switch though. :-)  It is not too difficult an implementation I believe, and the option is that much more convenient for anyone who might need it.
