Bang & Olufsen is a Danish consumer electronics company that designs and manufactures audio products, telephones and other electronic devices. The company is best known for their high quality headphones and speakers. The Danish company also regularly partners with other companies to release products, such as their Hi-Fi audio module released for the LG G5, under the "LG and Friends" project. Since then, Bang & Olufsen had released the Beoplay H7, a set of over-the-ear wireless headphones which can be connected to devices via Bluetooth. That being said, the company has announced a new product, the Beoplay H5, which is essentially a pair of in-ear wireless earphones, which is a first for the company.
In terms of specs, the Beoplay H5 features a 6.4 mm speaker which has electro-dynamic capabilities which can deliver Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound. It also has two 50 mAh batteries, one in each earpiece which brings the total battery capacity to 100 mAh. On a full charge, the batteries will be able to provide up to 5 hours of usage at a moderate level. It will take approximately 2 hours of charging to bring the batteries to a full charge. These earphones, which were designed by Jakob Wagner, are made out of aluminium and rubber, and users will have the choice to pick between two colors, Black and Dusty Rose. As far as connectivity is concerned, the earphones feature Bluetooth 4.2 and support aptX, aptX-LL and AAC codecs. With the aptX codec, users can expect to experience high quality sounds even though this is a Bluetooth headset.
These earphones can connect to Bang & Olufsen's app, the Beoplay App. With the app, users will be able to do a multitude of things such as enhance B&O Play experience by adjusting tonality, sound staging and much more. The app also allows users to track the battery life of the earphones. The earphones can also be stored easily as the earpieces are magnetic and can be clicked together, by doing so, the earphones will power off. For those wanting to get their hands on these premium and stylish wireless earphones, the Beoplay H5 can be bought for £199 in the UK, while they can be purchased for $249 in the US through Amazon.
