High end audio specialists Bowers & Wilkins today reveal their first pair of in-ear earphones, the C5 noise isolating buds. And as you’d expect from the premium brand, they come with a premium price tag too.
Designed specifically for Apple devices, the C5’s weigh in at £149.95 a pair.
So what’s the best part of 150 smackers get you? As well as noise-isolation, the C5’s are built from top-notch aluminium in a “cushion-looped” design.
A micro-porous filter is employed to limit noise bleed and acts as a diffuser, adding to the rich sonic quality and delivers “pristine, natural audio, while also providing a more spacious performance than previously possible from in-ear headphones”, according to B&W.
An in-line remote with microphone finishes the package.
