The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EQ headphones are the company’s first TWS model with full active noise canceling. The built-in ANC received an automatic adjustment mode: using four special microphones, the chip will automatically set the correct level of noise suppression depending on the environment.
In addition, with the help of two additional microphones, the headphones will be able to remove all interference in telephone conversations: the company has promised “crystal clear” voice transmission. You can customize ANC to your taste through the application.
Beoplay EQ headphones were equipped with 6.8 mm drivers with a sensitivity of 107 dB and a range from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. The Bluetooth 5.2 module with support for SBC, AAC and aptX Adaptive codecs is responsible for wireless transmission.
According to the manufacturer, Beoplay EQ will provide 6.5 hours of music playback (with noise reduction turned on). The charging case will give you a total of 20 hours of operation “at moderate volume”. By the way, the case is made of aluminum and supports wireless charging. In 20 minutes, the earbuds can be recharged for another 2 hours of music playback. The case itself charges for about two hours via the Qi Wireless (slightly faster via USB-C).
It is also worth noting that the headphones received IP54 protection: the model is not afraid of dust and water splashes. The set includes four pairs of silicone tips of different sizes and one pair of Comply foam tips.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EQ headphones are already available in China and Japan. In other countries, the novelty should appear on August 19. In the US, they will ask for $400 for headphones. The headphones will be available in black and gold.
