B&O unveils Beoplay HX

Bang & Olufsen has launched a new headphone, the Beoplay HX, which offers digital ANC and up to 35 hours of play time.

Featuring two custom-designed 40mm drivers with neodymium magnets and bass ports to ensure optimal bass performance, the Beoplay HX uses four mics for calls and the sound is further enhanced due to improved speech delivery, while the listening experience is immersive thanks to the introduction of Digital Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation, which blocks out unwanted interference without compromising on sound quality.

Lightweight (285g), measuring 195 x 200 x 53mm (WxHxD) and designed for durability, the HX boasts an ergonomic design with a revamped headband that has a centre-relief zone for long-time wear.

The earpads are made from soft lambskin with memory foam that adapts to the shape and curves of the user’s ear. The upper headband is made from cow hide with a smooth grain, while the lower headband is covered in a knitted fabric. Beoplay HX includes a fabric case. It also offers connectivity via Bluetooth 5.1, Microsoft Swift Pair, Google Fast Pair and Made for iPhone (MFi). The product set-up process complies with both Android and Apple devices.

The arm sliders are made of anodised, pearl-blasted recycled aluminium with a light brushed detail in the upper part. The disc is crafted from aluminium with a diamond spin finish, which is nestled within a polymer-painted recycled plastic structure.

Available in Black Anthracite, Beoplay HX has a three-year warranty upon registration and the company says Sand and Timber colourways will be available at a later date.

The Beoplay HX is available now for £500
