Bang & Olufsen (B&O) isn’t exactly a company you would think of if you’re looking to purchase affordable audio products. However over the years the company has started to create more relatively affordable audio equipment, such as the recently announced Beoplay H4 wireless headphones.
These headphones aren’t cheap compared to other models out there, but at the moment it is the cheapest option offered by B&O at the moment as far as wireless headphones are concerned. They are priced at $300 which is $100 less than the Beoplay H7 and about $200 cheaper than the Beoplay H9, so like we said, it is relatively more affordable.
That being said, what can we expect from the Beoplay H4? For starters they will be an over-ear design meaning that the cups of headphones rests around your ear instead of on it, which should in theory be more comfortable for extended periods of time. They will feature 40mm drivers in each earcup, and have a set of physical buttons that lets users control music playback. This is versus the touch controls found on B&O’s higher-end offerings.
The headphones will also feature the use of “premium” materials such as lambskin and aluminum. According to the company, battery life is around 19 hours with a 2.5 hour charge. If this sounds like something you might be interested in, head on over to B&O’s website for the details.
