B&O Play has unveiled its first-ever wireless earphones with the Beoplay H5. Beoplay H5 is designed for music lovers with an active lifestyle by one of Scandinavia’s foremost designers, Jakob Wagner, and combines the highly acclaimed Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound with sleek aesthetics and an effortless tech experience. For seamless integration into an active everyday life, Beoplay H5 comes tuned with a variety of sound profiles to deliver best-in-class sound experience in all situations.

Users simply choose one of the preset sound profiles in Beoplay App on their smartphone or Apple Watch, such as working out, commuting, listening to podcasts or relaxing, or they can adjust the tonality and staging with the playful and intuitive B&O Play ToneTouch interface.


To make sure that users do not leave their earphones behind, Beoplay H5 comes with a magnet built into each earpiece, so users can click them around their neck for effortless wear and easy access to their music and podcasts. Clicking the earpieces together, Beoplay H5 automatically powers down saving battery life.

The cable connecting the two earpieces is encased in braided textile, which makes it comfortable against the skin, and is molded directly inside the rubber to prevent dirt and sweat from interfering with the delicate electronics. The housing of the earphones is made of textured rubber and polymer to resist sweat and moisture, and to complement the braided textile cable a diamond cut and radially polished aluminium plate is mounted on top of each earpiece.


Beoplay H5 comes with a rechargeable battery with a total capacity of 100mAh that gives up to five hours of wireless mobility between charges, which is enough to complete a marathon with battery to spare. Charging Beoplay H5 is easy with the cubic charger that comes with the earphones. Instead of inserting micro-USB cables in the earphones, users simply click in the earphones into the cubic charger and two magnets hold the earpieces in place as they charge.

Beoplay H5 comes complete with a charger and a carrying pouch in black and dusty rose for $249 USD. Check out more of the H5 at B&O Play’s site here.
