Bowers & Wilkins C5 Noise-Isolating Black In-Ear Headphones, Model C5B

Bowers & Wilkins recognizes that a growing number of music aficionados do their listening on the go, and the B&W C5 In-Ear Noise Isolating Headphones were designed for them. B&W called on decades of expertise crafting audiophile quality loudspeakers, and combined it with innovative new designs in their quest to create the best earbuds a listener could want. It was important for B&W to find the perfect balance between comfort, sound quality and earbud size. The B&W C5 achieve all three.

Even more so than with traditional on-ear headphones, proper fit is paramount in an earbud design. A poor fit will ruin even the best-sounding earbuds, because if you can't keep them in your ears, how can you enjoy their sound? B&W earbuds leverage several design elements to give the C5 headphones a perfect fit for ears of every shape and size. Interchangeable rubber buds allow a customized fit, creating a tight seal that not only keeps the B&W C5 earbuds in place, but is also responsible for noise isolation. Bolstering the fit is B&W's unique Secure Loop Design, which transforms a section of the headphone cable into an adjustable loop that locks the buds into the inner ridge of your ear. Additionally, these B&W earbuds feature a clever construction that weights the inner casing, keeping them balanced towards your ear, instead of outwards.

While the exact technology that powers B&W speakers wouldn't fit into the B&W C5 earbuds, the same level of engineering is present. Sound is provided by 9 mm drivers with neodymium magnets moving ultra-light diaphragms, for crisp clear highs and bass with surprising depth. The specially designed Micro Porous Filters vent the B&W C5s, minimizing distortion, producing a rich sound and the perception of a large soundstage that one doesn't typically get with in-ear headphones. With the B&W C5 earbuds, B&W achieves their aural goal, not to make the loudest earbuds or those with the biggest bass, but to create the most natural sound possible in a diminutive size.


MFI Cable
C5 in-ear headphones and your iPhone® or iPod® were made for each other. The C5’s Apple®-approved cable comes with its own remote control and microphone, allowing you to control your music effortlessly, and switch seamlessly between listening to music and making calls.

Tungsten Sound Tube
When it comes to in-ear headphones, nothing messes with your listening enjoyment more than a loose, unreliable fit. The C5's inner casing is weighted with Tungsten, ensuring they are balanced towards the ear, not away from it. So the in-ear headphones will stay securely inside your ears throughout even the bumpiest bus ride.

Secure Loop Design
C5 stays put thanks to our unique Secure Loop design. Adjustable loops hold the in-ear headphones firmly in place.

Noise Isolation
C5's snug fit and stunningly realistic sound means you can forget the rest of the world and lose yourself in music.

Micro Porous Filter
Our Micro Porous Filter acts as a sonic diffuser, opening up the sound and making music feel remarkably rich and expansive.

Comments about Bowers & Wilkins C5 Noise-Isolating Black In-Ear Headphones:

Many of the reviews said the ear buds had great base but I was not hearing it, I had to play around with positioning the buds in my ear until I found the right spot, now I can hear it and sometimes feel it. What a difference a quality pair of ear buds make, I enjoy listening to many different styles of music and these make a difference in hearing more sounds.
