ldapsearch syntax error

I wanted to run a search on multiple attributes.
The Red Hat Docs showed


But, when I ran:
ldapsearch -x -ZZ -b"dc=example,dc=com" (&(filter1=x)(filter2=y))

I got,
-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('

The only thing I found, was on this page, which said to enclose the filters in quotes.

So, the command looked like this:
ldapsearch -x -ZZ -b"dc=example,dc=com" "(&(filter1=x)(filter2=y))"

Afterwards, ldapsearch worked.
