It's Cyber Monday! So much shiny-shiny! Bowers & Wilkins throws red meat to those of us who love a little tungsten in our lives. The C5 in-ear sound isolating headphones are gorgeous, tiny, innovative and sound great.
The greatest thing about the C5 is the adjustable fit. The headphone cable is ingeniously curled around the body, and the resulting adjustable loop is what holds it in your ear. The fit is comfortable and secure and just so damn smart looking! I know, I know, you're smart too! Best thing for active people, the secure fit means the C5 can take some jostling when you're on the move.
The technology is alien. Something about micro-porous filters, tungsten weighting, blah blah blah. Bottom line: they sound fantastic. Got an iPhone? The inline remote has a microphone for calls and controls for your music. The whole enchilada comes in a nice little zippered case with a clever cord management solution, and extra eartips for different sized ears. Outstanding!
