Product Description

Thanks to improvements in small-scale drive unit design, the latest version of the B&W C5 in-ear headphones sounds more natural and controlled than ever. Listen, you won't be dissapointed. 


From dream to global brand Bowers & Wilkins has come a long way from John Bowers building speakers by hand, in the back room of a small southern English electrical store in 1966. Yet the global brand is still driven by his quest for the perfect speaker. Bowers & Wilkins engineering laboratory, still based in the same part of England, is behind the most innovative and best-sounding speakers, headphones and Wireless Music Systems in the world. That's why Bowers & Wilkins products are found in some of the world’s top studios. That's why Bowers & Wilkins products deliver music as it's meant to be heard – with every emotion intact. That's why Bowers & Wilkins remains unique. Listen and you'll see.

Passion For Music: Bowers & Wilkins devotion to sound goes far beyond its quest for the ultimate speaker.

Society of Sound: Bowers & Wilkins online space where musicians, technicians and enthusiasts share music, knowledge and the quest for true sound. Members also receive monthly master tape-quality album downloads, chosen by Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios and the LSO.

Studio: Given Bowers & Wilkins reputation for audio quality, it's not surprising its speakers are used in some of the world's leading audio studios. Music from the world’s best artists is heard first through 800 Series Diamond speakers, in London’s Abbey Road Studios. Bowers & Wilkins speakers also serve Hollywood's audio experts at Skywalker Sound studios, Marin County, California.

Events: Taking Society of Sound into the real world with live performances, Bowers & Wilkins Sound Sessions offer access to exclusive, invitation-only events with amazing artists including Coldplay, Metallica and Emeli Sandé.

Driven To Perfection: It's not just leading audio studios, musicians and technology critics that recognize Bowers & Wilkins as the leading quality audio brand. Maserati and Bowers & Wilkins share a passion for engineering excellence, technological innovation and exquisite styling. Bowers & Wilkins systems for Maserati are designed to deliver the most immersive in-car entertainment experience, perfectly tuned to match each model's unique audio signature. Bowers & Wilkins speakers are also used in some of the world's most luxurious hotels, including the Carlyle in Manhattan and the Waldorf Astoria in Chicago.

C5 Series 2 Features

New, Improved Edition of C5 Headphones: Thanks to improvements in small-scale drive unit design, the latest version of B&W's C5 in-ear headphones sounds more natural and controlled than ever. C5 Series 2 comes from Bowers & Wilkins, an audio company with close to five decades of experience creating the loudspeakers that world-leading recording studios such as Abbey Road depend upon. Listen and you’ll see.

Superb Sound: 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.

Secure Loop Design: The C5 Series 2 features our innovative Secure Loop design – cushioned loops that curl around the ear’s inner rim to hold them in place. The loops are infinitely adjustable, so you always get the perfect fit. Or they can be detached, if you would rather use the C5 Series 2 without.

Micro Porous Filter: Bowers & Wilkins is dedicated to bringing you closer to the true sound of music. The C5 Series 2’s unique Micro Porous Filter ensures the sound you hear is open, spacious and full of rich, lifelike detail, just like you hear with B&W's reference Hi-Fi speakers.

Usability & Comfort: C5 Series 2 include an improved remote and microphone control that has been redesigned to improve usability. These headphones are lighter than the previous version, which means they’re an even more comfortable fit.

In The News

PC-MAG had this to say about the B&W C5 Series 2 Headphones: "The Bowers & Wilkins C5, released in 2011, was a groundbreaking set of earphones. It offered the most secure in-canal fit we'd seen, thanks to the audio cable itself forming a loop that presses against the ear. The new version, C5 Series 2, looks very similar and utilizes the same excellent, customizable secure fit to deliver rich bass response paired with bright, clear highs. These are simply some of the most elegant in-canal earphones available, winning the C5 Series 2 our Editors' Choice award.

Powerful audio performance with rich lows, detailed highs, and excellent balance. Attractive, secure-fitting, lightweight design. Inline remote control and microphone.

The Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2 earphone pair has upgraded drivers and a fantastic sound signature with deep bass response and clear highs, just like its predecessor."
