The Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2 noise-isolating in-ear earphones provide pristine, natural sound quality along with a secure & comfortable fit. These earphones retain the unique loop design of its predecessor, for a perfect fit and superior noise isolation while minimizing sound leakage. Featuring a redesigned 9.2mm dynamic driver, these headphones deliver bass that’s powerful yet controlled, resulting in a more natural, open and detailed sound.

The C5 earphones are designed to function impeccably with your iPhone or iPod touch, and feature a 3 button remote and microphone.


  • Detailed Sound

    Bowers & Wilkins aims at providing the most natural, realistic sound possible. These earphones offer crystal-clear audio, and deep, satisfying bass.

    Newly Designed 9.2mm Driver

    The C5 Series 2 uses a new 9.2mm dynamic driver, that has been optimized to deliver bass that’s powerful yet controlled resulting in very natural open and clear sound.

    Micro Porous Filter

    In order to provide spacious, open sound from in-ear headphones, Bowers & Wilkins engineers have created the 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.

    Superior Noise Isolation

    The C5 S2s are also Tungsten Balanced, meaning that the headphones are weighted towards your ears, rather than away from them, for optimized noise isolation. 

    Comfortable Eartips in Various Sizes

    The C5 Series 2’s soft silicone ear buds come in a choice of three different sizes so that you can choose the most comfortable fit.

    Secure Loop Design

    Bowers & Wilkins' innovative Secure Loop design has loops of plastic-coated wire that curl around the inner rim of your ears and hold the earphones firmly in place. 

    Three Button Remote & Mic for iPhone

    The C5 S2 is the perfect partner for your iPhone. It comes with an easy to use, Apple-approved remote & microphone cable, for taking calls and controlling your device while on the move.

Clean, warm, rich and detailed

I've heard some of the most historic headphones including the shure se535 and the HD 800. Always wanted to own shure but due to my budget these were the ones I stalked my 200 bucks (13000) on.

They sound very detailed and rich. They sound more like a audio technica msr7 with a much more controlled hi end. The loops are innovative and effective... But don't tighten them to much in your ears, Use as much needed or else comfort issues may rise. And my personal suggestion, use comply foam ear tips or Sony hybrid ones instead of the provided ones to get the most out of these... Everything else is quite awesome about these headphones. They aren't built like tanks... They aren't very durable specially the cable but are high quality.
Conclusion - a very delicate and handsome headphone with one of the best sound quality under 200 dollars.

Hey Ananta, thank you for your detailed review man. We are glad you loved them :)

Dynamic and very revealing

The B&W C5s had an almost unbearable treble and mids that were quite forward in the mix out of the box. But after about 3-4 hours of use, the treble dropped significantly. So those of you who don't yet believe in burn-in may need to reconsider their beliefs. Now if I listen to Adagio(Sonata no 1 in G-minor) by Bach as played by Milstein, I can hear the violins crying out with emotion. And they're very revealing. If instead, you bring a sibilant recording to it's attention then it will sound exactly as it was recorded.

The mids are slightly recessed, but sound absolutely gorgeous. Guitar strings sound very soulful, they are heavy when they should be and light as a flutter otherwise. Voices sound very natural. It is quite dynamic as well and timing is spot on. The bass is tight and fast, though certainly not as fast as some headphones out there. The bass is also not that much. It's just there when it must be there, never overpowering, but always welcome.

All in all, these are a worthwhile investment and you wont regret buying them if you intend to use them with well recorded music ripped from CDs or MP3s with at least 320 kbps bitrate. They are very high on clarity and let you know whats wrong with the recording otherwise. But on a well recorded track and CD quality music, you cannot hope to take a better friend along for the ride. Oh, the sparkle and the flutter and emotion.
