The Bowers and Wilkins C5
The C5 retains the innovative 'secure loop' design technology made famous by its predecessor, which ensures a snug and comfortable fit within the ear. Additional design features include the option of three sizes of earbud, further enhancing comfort while also isolating external noise.
The most dramatic update to the C5 is the inclusion of a newly developed and redesigned 9.2mm dynamic driver unit. This allows the headphones to deliver a superlative bass response that's powerful, yet tight and controlled. This means that a more natural and open sound is possible, while the capability of these drives means that every delicate detail and micro dynamics is clear and not tempered well against the impressive bass and midrange response.
Who are Bowers and Wilkins?
Bowers & Wilkins are a company who needs a very little introduction, having been constructing some of the world's most critically acclaimed loudspeaker and headphone models for half of a decade. Starting at the entry level 600 S2 series, through to the new 700 S2 series audiophile range, 800 Diamond series and flagship Nautilus model. These different series of loudspeaker have been praised as the superior listening experience in both two-channel hifi/music listening and in multi-channel home theatre applications, having claimed a vast multitude of awards in both categories. A Bowers speaker can be easily recognised by the signature yellow Kevlar midrange cone, which can be found with their 600 series with the latest 700 and 800 Series opting for a silver 'continuum' cone.
B&W apply the same level of integrity, expertise and philosophy to their headphone models, reflecting the signature 'Bowers & Wilkins sound'; a warm, full response with precise and well-delivered detail. There are three models in Bowers & Wilkins' range of headphones and as the price increases, so does the size of the driver and the overall size of the unit. With this increase in size, the driver is able to deliver a more powerful and precise sound response. But even with the smallest model, B&W's dedication to replicating a true representation of the original sound source is evident.
