With their redesigned drive units, the Bowers & Wilkins C5 noise-isolating in-ear headphones deliver enhanced sound quality with amazingly natural acoustics, and a fit so comfortable and secure that you’ll hardly be aware you’re wearing them.
With brilliant design features and subtle improvements in small-scale drive unit technology, the C5 Series 2 takes in-ear sound quality to new heights.
A redesigned 9.2mm dynamic driver provides high definition sound, full-range audio clarity and rich bass that's powerful yet controlled, resulting in more natural, open and detailed acoustics.
A micro porous filter uses microscopic steel balls that act as a sonic diffuser, enhancing clarity and making music feel spacious and detailed.
The cushioned, Secure Loop design on the C5 Series 2 adjusts to the natural shape of your ear, keeping headphones snugly and securely on your ears, while tungsten weights are used to keep the headphones balanced towards the ear, to ensure they stay in throughout the bumpiest of rides.
A choice of three differently sized soft silicone ear buds that are interchangeable, ensuring that the C5 Series 2 will feel snug and guaranteeing optimal noise isolation, no matter what size your ears are.
