We already know Bang & Olufsen makes very good, very expensive speakers, which they’ve recently complemented with similarly good and expensive headphones. If you’ve been impressed with what you’ve heard so far, then you can enjoy the same sound quality in your workouts, too, with the outfit’s new Beoplay H5 earbuds.
A pair of Bluetooth earbuds, it brings the outfit’s audio and design expertise into a compact listening gear that you can pop in your ears. Whether you’re going on a run by the boardwalk, hitting the iron at the gym, or just need a lightweight pair of buds to bring on the go, these things should get the job done, while bringing B&O’s signature sound to the fray.
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H5 takes on that familiar “neckbuds” configuration, which connects the two ear units with a braided textile cord that loops behind your head. It’s easy on the eyes and look very premium like much of the outfit’s products, all while being resistant to splashes and dust, so you can take it out on the road without any worries. Magnets on each earpiece let you secure it around your neck when not in use, with an inline remote allowing you to take calls, control music playback, and use voice commands.
Features include four pairs of silicone tips to help you find the best fit, 6.4mm drivers, an omnidirectional mic, an accompanying app (B&O Play ToneTouch), and a battery life of five hours. It comes with a charging cube that lets you easily dock the buds to replenish the battery.
Available now, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H5 is priced at €249.
