With the video game industry now generating more annual revenue than the global movie market and the North American sports markets combined, an increasing number of prestigious companies have begun tapping into this rapidly growing space, such as Herman Miller with its range of gaming chairs and Aston Martin with its racing sim rig. Following this trend, Bang & Olufsen has taken its signature formula of premium materials, minimalistic Scandinavian design language, and world-class audio quality to deliver its first-ever purpose-built gaming headphones.

Known as the “Beoplay Portal,” these headphones were designed in collaboration with Xbox and boast a slew of gaming-specific features such as what B&O is calling a “virtual boom arm,” integrated lossless 2.4GHz Xbox Wireless connectivity, and multiple pre-set game modes including RPG and FPS. Boasting up to 24 hours of battery life, the Beoplay Portal also sports adaptive active noise cancellation, Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity, Dolby Atmos, and capacitive touch controls. Crafted from a combination of calfskin leather, aluminum, and a bamboo-derived fiber textile, these ANC headphones receive sound from a pair of custom-tuned 40mm electro-dynamic drivers with neodymium magnets. Comfort’s also been optimized with plush padding and a weight of just 9.9oz. Available for preorder now in three color options, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal is priced at $499.
