B&O PLAY Launches Two New Sets of Premium Headphones with Optimized Music Performance

Challenging technological barriers to present a sound experience tailored for a life on the move

New York City, USA / Copenhagen, Denmark — May 08, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — B&O PLAY by BANG & OLUFSEN proudly announces the launch of two new headphones this July 2013. The headphones are significant as they combine quality craftsmanship with enduring materials and use the latest technology to make portable music sound better. BeoPlay H3 is a superior and comfortable in-ear headphone for people in action; and BeoPlay H6 is a super soft, flexible over-ear headphone. Both sets of headphones feature a sound performance that takes audio to another level.

B&O PLAY builds on core values of craftsmanship and technology for a new type of contemporary products, which deliver excellent high-quality music experiences and are optimized for a life on the move. Now, with the launch of the new BeoPlay H3 and BeoPlay H6, customers can experience state of the art technology that reproduces the original sound material as authentically as possible , even while they are on the go. Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, VP of B&O PLAY indicates, “A wide range of headphones on the market today compromise on quality and sound performance. In the making of BeoPlay H3 and H6, we’ve worked with professional sound technicians and studio musicians, to offer people a pristine sound experience in a package that is a delight to wear.”

Best in class audio performance
To get the best possible sound experience, B&O PLAY conducted extensive studies in the shape and curves of the human ear to find suitable geometries that minimize sound leakage and reveal all the fine details in the music at any given volume level.

BeoPlay H6 offers a truly natural and authentic sound performance with focus on getting a clear midrange and a balanced bass and treble performance. BeoPlay H6 is designed around 40 mm custom designed drivers with neodymium magnets that are perfectly angled to get the best distance and sound direction into the ears. BeoPlay H6 features an internal bass port to deliver a well-balanced bass performance in a closed headphone design.

BeoPlay H3 features a custom-designed 10,8 mm driver and the new Micro Bass Port for a dynamic and balanced full tone sound design. The structural rigidity of the aluminium body provides acoustic precision for a clear musical experience. Together with the 23 ventilation holes, BeoPlay H3 is tuned to deliver an unstrained open sound stage.

Craft in craftsmanship
BeoPlay H3 and H6 are made of anodized high-grade aluminium. With the long history of material excellence in aluminum, B&O PLAY is able to construct BeoPlay H3 and H6 to be surprisingly light, as well as robust and scratch-resistant. The housing of BeoPlay H3 is milled from a single block of high-grade solid aluminum. BeoPlay H6 has anodized aluminum on the adjustable slider arm and cover plate to complete the design with a final vibrant touch.
