In-ears that really stay in
Fit is crucial to any pair of in-ear headphones, and not just for comfort and stability. It also ensures the best sound quality while isolating your ears from outside noise. Bowers & Wilkins has gone to great lengths to ensure that their C5 Series 2 in-ear headphones stay securely in your ears. These headphones feature B&W's innovative Secure Loop that expands to gently nestle against the inner rim of each ear, holding the headphones firmly in place. The earpieces also employ a solid Tungsten sound tube that balances them towards your ears, which helps keep them stable. An assortment of silicone ear tips helps you tailor these headphones to your ears, so you can get the most out of their superb sound. You'll be hard-pressed to find a more elegant-looking pair of in-ear headphones that offer a custom-feel fit alongside such rich sound.
Spacious, open sound
The original Bowers & Wilkins C5 in-ear headphones were widely acclaimed for their sound quality. Never one to rest on its laurels, B&W developed a new driver for their C5 Series 2 headphones, for sound that's more wide open and detailed, with more powerful bass response. The Mirco Porous filter on the end of each earpiece gives these headphones a distinctive look in addition to their role in delivering spacious, natural sound.
Remote and mic for Apple® devices
The C5 Series 2 headphones come with two miniplug cables: one straight cable, and one with a built-in remote and microphone. The three-button remote offers track and volume control for your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod®. The microphone lets you take hands-free calls with your iPhone. The headphones also include a quilted zip-up carrying case for storage and travel.
