Bang & Olufsen has recently launched the Beoplay EQ, its first-ever true wireless earbuds with built-in adaptive active noise canceling (ANC) capabilities. Aside from providing an undisturbed listening experience, the new earbuds promise to deliver powerful audio and long hours of usage. The Beoplay EQ sports a stemless main body for both earbuds – similar to the Samsung Galaxy Buds or Sony’s WF-1000XM series.
While B&O has produced a number of wireless models to date, it has not included ANC until now with the Beoplay EQ. The company says the new buds are made from durable premium materials with IP54 sweat and dust resistance, and on each side is an aluminum touch interface for playback management, calls, and so on. The buds are said to be ergonomically shaped to fit comfortably in a person’s ears and a variety of ear tips are also included in the package to ensure a snug fit.
The earbuds come with electro-dynamic 6.8mm drivers which are capable of delivering a sensitivity of 107dB ± 3dB, 1kHz @-3 dBFS, a frequency range of 20 – 20,000Hz, and impedance of 17 Ohm +/-2.55 @ 1KHz. The Beoplay EQ uses Adaptive ANC that is powered by a dedicated ANC DSP chip and six built-in microphones, enabling automatic adjustments to the noise-canceling levels in any environment. In terms of battery life, B&O says you can expect 6.5 hours on the earbuds themselves with two additional charges in the case. That case supports wireless charging and in true B&O fashion, it is made out of aluminum. The company included a quick-charge feature that gives you two hours of listening time in 20 minutes. The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EQ will be available to purchase on August 19th.
