Aesthetic design and user-friendly fit are essential factors of any wireless earbuds, and Bang & Olufsen has taken that into account with its latest earbuds, Beoplay EX.
The stem-heavy form of these new earbuds has a different outlook from the company’s existing series of Beoplay EQ earbuds. It’s gonna be available in three stunning colors: Anthracite Oxygen, Gold Tone, and Black Anthracite.
However, the change in design is about more than aesthetics, as B&O claims that this all-new ergonomic form will provide long-term comfort right out of the case with soft tips. Users will be able to use them for hours without feeling fatigued.
And the stick silhouette ensures stability while walking, running, or jumping.
Materials that are used in building them are aluminum, tempered glass, polymer, and silicone. So, it seems like they will be durable enough to withstand a few drops and rough usage.
Also, a 9.2mm driver in each earbud of the Beoplay EX brings dynamic power. A total of six microphones work together to cut the ambient sound out so that users can enjoy distortion-free listening as well as the highest call quality.
It is also stated that the battery will last up to 6 hours with ANC mode on, and it can be increased to 20 hours with the supplied charging case.
