B&W C5 in ear headphones

The B&W C5 headphones have been built with your iPhone or iPod in mind. With their in ear loop design, they offer both the advantage of in ear headphones but also attach comfortably to the ear without pull or risk of damage to the headphone. There is also a microphone and volume control attached for the perfect match for your iPhone.

The B&W C5 headphones have been built with the iPhone user in mind, carrying on B&W's strong tradition of providing high quality accessories for iPhone users.

As well as providing the usual high level of sound quality associated with B&W products, the C5 headphones have been built with the attention to detail that has made the B&W Zeppelin Air the class leading product in its field.

The first thing that strikes you is their solid feel and weight, with the earphones themselves balanced internally with a tungsten tube inside the ear bud to give a secure solid fit in your ears. But, unilke the majority of in ear headphones, the C5's do not rely on grip alone to hold the ear buds in; instead, their unique Secure Loop design innovatives by allowing a coil to be expanded into your outer ear, holding the earbuds securely in place.

This design also removes the risk of pull on the lead, meaning your headphones will last longer than the average - again, another attention to detail that will be sure to please in years to come.

Of course, no iPhone headphone would be complete without a volume control with microphone, and the C5 provides a high quality micriphone so you can enjoy calls on the move.

You'll also get a quilted carry pouch and an IFE adaptor for use on airlines with these headphones. Please note, this product is only available in the Gloss Black finish.
