Bowers & Wilkins C5 in-ear headphones: a promising high-end debut

Bowers & Wilkins oozes high-end quality amongst music hungry Apple fans so it is therefore with a good degree of excitement that we see the company launching their first ever in-ear headphones in the Bowers & Wilkins C5 headphones.

According to Bowers & Wilkins themselves, the new C5 in-ear headphones brings; “amazing clarity of sound, innovative design, and high-quality materials for the discerning customer who demands premium performance from in-ear headphones.” which sounds great to me, so lets hope they live up to the marketing talk.

The Bowers & Wilkins C5 in-ear headphones feature a sound isolating design, which is important for the many music loving commuters out there, as well as limiting sound leakage, which i’m sure most people around you will also be thankful for as there is nothing worse than having to listen to what everyone else around you is listening to as well.

One of the interesting design features of the C5 in-ear headphones is the secure loop, which is adjustable and there to help provide a more secure fit around the inner ridge of the users ears. It is good to see that B&W have though about many of the key aspects of a good set of in-ear headphones; comfort, fit, sound isolation, and of course sound performance.

The C5 in-ear headphones also come with an Apple approved cable, featuring remote control and microphone, playing nicely with the iPhone as well as with most other media players that can take a standard headphone jack.

I hope to be back with a full review soon as i can’t wait to find out if these in-ear headphones live up to the B&W expectations, and if they are able to deliver as well as their over-ear counterpart in the B&W P5 headphones, which in my view is amongst the better portable headphones in its price range.
