Bowers & Wilkins C5 Headphones

We’d be hard pressed to find an answer if you asked us to identify two pieces of audio gear we love listening to more than our Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin or PS5 headphones. But, we doubt you’d ever see us using them. Neither are exactly portable. That may soon change though with the upcoming release of the Bowers & Wilkins C5 Headphones (est $240). The noise-isolating in-ear headphones finally bring B&W’s amazing acoustics to a set of portable headphone that, gasp, you might actually run with. Besides the amazing design you’ve come to expect from B&W, the headphones feature a Micro Porous Filter system to provide a spacious, lifelike soundstage and a Secure Loop design and Tungsten Balanced weighting that hold the headphones firmly in place using a curled inner ear rim wire and a biased weight balance towards the ear. The C5 headphones also boast a built-in remote and microphone for the requisite iPod or iPhone usage as well as a quilted carrying pouch.

~$240 (Available August)
