As one of the leaders in audio equipment, any release that Bang & Olufsen puts forth is often standard-setting, and that looks to be the case again with the brand’s latest product. With the unveiling of its Beoplay EX true wireless earbuds, the German manufacturer is looking to separate itself from the pack.
In contrast to the standard set of bud-like offerings on the market, B&O has instituted a stem to its latest release, which looks to provide a much more ergonomic feel without sacrificing the brand’s signature chic, the latter of which is made prominent with the EX’s composition of glass and aluminum. In addition to a more comfortable feel, the Beoplay EX buds are weatherized thanks to their IP57 waterproof rating, deeming them a perfect choice for listening to music as you jog through springtime showers. For added longevity, the latest Beoplay generation is also dust-and-sand-resistant.
Seeing as these are a pair of true wireless earbuds from an audiophile-approved brand, there’s no question that the main draw here is their powerful sound. Each respective earbud boasts a 9.2mm driver and cutting-edge microphone that assist in leaving your voice as clear as day on phone calls. Boasting a whopping total battery life of 28 hours, including 6 when using their high-end ANC, the Beoplay EX are meant to last all day and then some. What’s more, thanks to their Bluetooth connectivity, you can easily control the buds’ distinct listening modes through B&O’s user-friendly app.
Bang & Olufsen’s sleek new earphones are most likely an upgrade from your current pair — the only question is if it’s one you’re willing to make. If you do indeed decide that the Beoplay EX are the earphones for you, you can pick them up on B&O’s website for $399 in either gold, black, or dark gray.
