B&O PLAY by BANG & OLUFSEN will be launching two new high audio performance 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. 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.”
B&O PLAY has collaborated with Danish industrial designer Jakob Wagner in the shaping of BeoPlay H3 and H6.
BeoPlay H3 and H6 are made of anodized high-grade aluminium, which makes the headphones surprisingly light, as well as robust and scratch-resistant. The solid cowhide leather on the BeoPlay H6 headphones comes from New Zealand where the cows roam in controlled pastures and only the very highest quality hides are selected.
“We have huge expectations for these premium headphones,” states Zean Nielsen, President of Bang & Olufsen America, Inc. “Our customers have been yearning for a quality alternative to the headphones that are on the market today. With H6 and H3’s arrival, we will now offer a premium headphone that delivers a best in class audio experience and authentic design that we know will resonate with our brand enthusiasts and music lovers across the country.”
Price for H3 USD $249 and H6 USD $399. Available July 2013 at Bang & Olufsen stores, shopbangolufsen.com, the B&O PLAY online store (beoplay.com), Apple retail stores, and Apple Online.
