B&O Play Introduces New Wireless Beoplay H4 Headphones

February 11, 2017 Gadgets No Comments Email Email

B&O PLAY introduce the clean and contemporary Beoplay H4, the Danish audio specialist’s newest wireless headphone by Scandinavian designer Jakob Wagner. With an emphasis on pure materials, quality design and superior sound, Beoplay H4 headphones are made from lambskin, braided textile and aluminium. Their minimalist design expression is an unmistakable link to the B&O PLAY design heritage and comes with the renowned Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound.

“Beoplay H4 started as an exciting idea of a new, dynamic archetype that would give us the opportunity to expand our best-in-class sound, craftsmanship and design language to a much broader audience”, says Global Head of Marketing Jens Jermiin for B&O PLAY.

“Music is an art that explores the aural space. It is meant to stir up emotions and to provoke feelings. Growing up in the digital age, when HiFi listening was replaced with smartphone earplugs, it is easy to forget how immediate and beautiful a piano sounds, how percussion sparkles and how full and tuneful a bass really is. For those who want a way back in, Beoplay H4 is a beautiful and powerful piece of design that will make you fall in love with music all over again”.

A minimalist and pure design expression

Beoplay H4 has been designed to define a new standard for people who value iconic simplicity. Clean lines, a minimalist expression and a focus on pure essentials makes Beoplay H4 stand out beautifully,

“The core philosophy at B&O PLAY is to deliver authentic sound – considering each part separately to improve and simplify an expression of purpose. So listening becomes an authentic experience for all our senses. Our challenge was to express that through every detail”, says the Danish designer Jakob Wagner.

True materials: soft lambskin, aluminium and braided textile

Beoplay H4 comes with soft lambskin ear cushions as well as a lambskin-covered headband. The inside of the ear cushion is made of memory foam that adapts to the shapes and curves of the ear for a tight yet comfortable fit. The ear cushions create passive noise isolation, which means that the external sounds will not interfere with your music, and at the same time, your music will not leak out to the surroundings. The cord connecting the headphones is encased in braided textile that has been made partially visible between the slider and the headband to add a singular design touch.

Simple user interface

Beoplay H4 comes with a simple and intuitive user interface comprised of 3 buttons, a Micro USB connector and a 3.5mm jack that integrate seamlessly into the sturdy but smooth material that make up of the headphones’ housing. Users simply press the centre button to answer/end calls, play/pause, press upper or lower button for volume control and to skip tracks, and press upper and lower buttons simultaneously to pair your headphones through Bluetooth.

Beoplay H4 comes with up to 19 hours of wireless music with just a 2.5-hour charge. If Beoplay H4 runs out of power, you can simply plug in the enclosed mini jack cable to keep enjoying your music.

Adjust the sound profile with Beoplay App

Beoplay H4 is compatible with Beoplay App for Android, iPhone and Apple Watch, which gives you a variety of options for personalising your listening experience:

  • Bang & Olufsen sound engineers have created a variety of sound profiles specifically for Beoplay H4: Commute, Clear, Workout and Podcast.
  • Users can adjust the tonality and sound staging themselves with the intuitive B&O PLAY ToneTouch. The interface lets users feel their way through different sound settings and find the one that best suits the situation. Once adjusted, Beoplay H4 saves the setting on the product itself until you adjust it again.
  • Connected to Beoplay H4, the app makes it easy to monitor the battery status of the headphones.
  • Users can control the music (play, pause, forward, back), and they can personalise the headphones in the app by giving it a specific colour and name.
  • By connecting Beoplay H4 to Beoplay App, users also receive software updates over the air.

Price and availability

Beoplay H4 launches in Charcoal Grey and is available for a suggested retail price of AUD $399 / $445 NZD. Included is a charging cable and audio cable. It will be available in Bang & Olufsen showrooms in Australia from 9th February and on beostore.com.au from 13th February.
