With a B&W product, we often expect to see premium pricing based on their name and reputation. At $180, the C5 in-ear headphones are quite reasonable. While we're sure some consumers would expect noise-canceling and not just isolation at this price point, the fact is that a well designed isolation system will work very well in all but the most extreme environments. With a quilted bag for storage, Micro Porous Filter, rating down to 10Hz, Made for iPhone certification, and a focus on comfort for long listening sessions, the C5 headphones are sure to appeal to many.
