Bang & Olufsen released the Beoplay Portal headphones a year ago. Even then, headphones were presented as a gamer’s model with an emphasis on the Xbox console. Recently, the company has updated the product, making it even more suitable for games.
Compatible with PCs and Sony PlayStation
According to the Bang & Olufsen, the latest Beoplay Portal PC PS is fully compatible with PCs and Sony PlayStation via 2.4GHz. In addition, the Beoplay Portal PC PS can be connected to any mobile device, including a gaming smartphone. You can also listen to music through Portal PC PS.
New wireless dongle
In addition to enhanced connectivity, the headphones received a new wireless dongle transmitter with a fast connection, an improved 42-hour battery, and next-generation adaptive noise reduction technology.
According to the manufacturer, the Portal PC PS will not cause any problems for both gamers and other users: they promised a stable connection, high-quality sound and ease of use.
40mm neodymium driver
Beoplay Portal PC PS has a 40mm neodymium driver. Headphones operate in the range from 20Hz to 22kHz. The Bluetooth 5.1 module supports aptX Adaptive. There is support for Dolby Atmos for Headphones.
The company also drew attention to the fact that the headphones are equipped with special microphones that capture the user’s voice with high quality, but block out ambient noise.

In the European market, headphones are already available for order. The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal PC PS was offered in three colors (black, gray, blue) at a price of 499 euros.
