C5 Series 2 In-Ear Headphones with Secure Loop design
Thanks to improvements in small-scale drive unit design, the latest version of our C5 in-ear headphones sounds more natural and controlled than ever.
C5 Series 2 use a new 9.2mm dynamic driver, and have been optimised to deliver bass that’s powerful yet precisely controlled, resulting in a more natural, open and detailed sound.
With Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2, you can take true sound with you wherever you go.
C5 Series 2 is a mixture of long-held acoustic principles and technological advances, key among which is the Micro Porous Filter. This acts as a diffuser, enabling C5 Series 2 to deliver pristine, natural audio, while also providing a more spacious performance than previously possible from in-ear headphones. Together with C5 Series 2’s noise-isolating design, this allows users to lose themselves in flawless audio
Micro Porous Filter
If you want a spacious sound, you need room to breathe. Not a problem for a large speaker, but quite a challenge for a set of headphones small enough to fit in your ears. With these in-ear headphones, we got around the problem with our Micro Porous Filter. Hundreds of microscopic steel balls act as a sonic diffuser, opening up the sound and making music feel remarkably rich and expansive.
C5 Series 2’s snug fit and stunningly realistic sound means you can forget the rest of the world and lose yourself in music. At the same time, these in-ear headphones let in just enough ambient noise to allow you to retain your sense of place. Perfect for listening to music when you’re out and about
Comfort and quality of fit are vital elements in an in-ear headphone. C5 Series 2 ensures both with the introduction of the proprietary Secure Loop design, an ingenious innovation where a cushioned loop fixes quickly and comfortably in the inner ridge of your ear. This, together with the tungsten balanced design, holds C5 Series 2 in place for improved sound, and also makes it ideal for use on the move and during activities.
Remote and mic cable
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2 and your iPad, 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 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.
