Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2 In-Ear Headphones

Bowers & Wilkins C5 In-Ear Headphones

Bowers & Wilkins today announced the C5 Series 2 in-ear headphones that are lighter, more comfortable, and sound better than the original C5 headphones. The company says sound quality has been significantly boosted by improvements in small-scale drive unit design, including the introduction of new drivers and other internal components. The result is that while the new C5 Series 2 retains the looks of their predecessors, B&W says they sound far better, and are the best sounding in-ear headphones yet produced.

That dramatic improvement in sound quality is particularly thanks to new, precisely optimized 9.2mm dynamic drivers. These deliver bass that’s powerful, yet precisely controlled for a more natural sound, while C5 Series 2’s Micro Porous Filter ensures a spacious sound, full of rich, lifelike detail.

On the outside, the Secure Loop design of the original C5 has also been retained. This ingenious innovation fixes a cushioned loop quickly and comfortably to the inner ridge of your ear, holding the headphones securely in place. But despite delivering the design details and quality materials of the original, the new C5 Series 2 is also now lighter – meaning it’s better than ever for comfortable, extended listening sessions.

As well as sounding better, and being more comfortable than ever, the new C5 Series 2 looks better, too. It now comes in a smart new black finish with matching cables. Looks, lightness, comfort and amazing in-ear sound: the new C5 – comfort meets clarity.

Features

Sound –  Optimized 9.2mm dynamic drivers, unique Micro Porous Filters and the Tungsten Balanced Design deliver powerful, precisely controlled bass, a spacious sound and rich, lifelike detail.

Comfort – Same ingenious Secure Loop design of its predecessor, but is 10 percent lighter for an even more comfortable fit.
