Wireless headphones are a necessity now because of the ease and convenience they offer to the consumers. Bang & Olufsen has recently updated the Earset headphones by offering a wireless version of the B&O Play Earset. It becomes the B&O Play Earset Bluetooth that is a better version sans the cable. In the 90s, B&O’s Anders Hermansen designed a headset that is now considered iconic. This 2018, it’s updated with fewer wires and now takes advantage of Bluetooth connectivity.
You won’t find any 3.5mm plug here but Bluetooth is your main option but now with better design, enhanced wireless technology, and more a reliable connection. There are a number of obvious changes and improvements but the B&O team has made the pair adapt to modern technology such as twin acoustic vents, bass port, ambient sound, 14.2mm speaker with a neodymium magnet, a Bluetooth processor, and a 5-hour battery.
The B&O Earset is made of forged aluminum but the ear hooks are made of soft rubber. The housing boasts some radially polished surfaces and diamond-cut edges.
The B&O Play Earset still has a cable but only to link the two earpieces. Other features include an in-line remote and a built-in microphone. Use the buttons to activate a smart voice assistant, pair with a device, or answer/end calls.
The B&O Play Earset will be ready for $299 in either White or Graphite Brown.
