B&O PLAY today introduced their new wireless headphones, the Beoplay H4, with a clean and contemporary design by Danish Jakob Wagner.
With an emphasis on pure materials, pure design and pure sound, Beoplay H4 offers a beautiful build quality utilising finest lambskin, braided textile and aluminium. The minimalist design expression has an unmistakable link to the B&O PLAY design heritage and is complemented by the renowned Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound for a powerful and authentic musical experience.
B&O provide an Android and iOS app that once installed allows you to take software updates for the headphones, adjust various sound settings and monitor the state of the inbuilt battery. You can connect your phone via Bluetooth, or a traditional 3.5mm headset cable.
The controls are kept to a minimum, with a central button for play/pause and answering calls, and an upper and lower button for volume and skipping tracks forward or backward. Bluetooth pairing for the H4 is acomplished by pressing and holding the up and down buttons together.
Jens Jermiin Global Head of Marketing for B&O PLAY said:
Beoplay H4 started as an exciting idea of a new, dynamic archetype that would give us the opportunity to expand our best-in-class sound, craftsmanship and design language to a much broader audience.
Music is an art that explores the aural space. It is meant to stir up emotions and to provoke feelings. Growing up in the digital age, when HiFi listening was replaced with smartphone earplugs, it is easy to forget how immediate and beautiful a piano sounds.
Beoplay H4 provides up to 19 hours of wireless music with just a 2.5-hour charge. If Beoplay H4 runs out of power, you can simply plug in the enclosed mini jack cable to keep enjoying your music.
>> The Beoplay H4 launches in Charcoal Grey and has a RRP of £249
I love tech things, especially the way they infiltrate our lives without us even realising. I don’t like having to explain how a gadget works to every member of my family though!
