Danish brand Bang & Olufsen has announced its new Beoplay HX wireless headset. It boasts most of the bells and whistles you’d expect from an upmarket pair of headphones. But beyond all that, it has a pretty impressive battery life.
Bang & Olufsen claims that the Beoplay HX can last for 35 hours with ANC turned on, and 40 hours without. Which is pretty impressive, to say the least. And when it runs out, you charge it with a USB-C cable. The wireless connection is done over Bluetooth 5.1 with support for aptX Adaptive, AAC and SBC codecs. But when you prefer a more conventional connection, it not only has a 3.5mm audio jack, but also a cable that comes in the box.
Beyond features, it’s probably safe to expect better-than-average build quality from the Beoplay HX. The ear pads have lambskin over the memory foam inside. And the headband uses cow hide instead. Which, if genuine, sounds so much better than all the faux leather in the market currently. The rest of the headphones use aluminium, with a bit of recycled plastic here and there.
Naturally, something from the Danish brand wouldn’t come cheap. The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay HX is priced at US$499 (~RM2069). Right now, it remains to be seen if these headphones will be making their way to our shores.
