Bang & Olufsen’s Latest True Wireless Earbuds Add ANC and a Big Price Tag

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EQs and case
Bang & Olufsen

Danish audio brand Bang & Olufsen just released its latest true wireless earbuds, the Beoplay EQ. The premium buds are pricier than the company’s previous E8 buds by $50 and, while they don’t share the same great battery life, they do (finally) bring noise-canceling to the table.

The Beoplay EQs feature six microphones: two on each bud for managing noise cancellation and an extra one on each for making phone calls with quality audio. And again, while they don’t pack in quite as much total battery life as the E8 earbuds—just 20 hours compared to the E8’s impressive 35—battery capacity for the actual earbuds remains about the same. You’ll still be able to get about seven hours without ANC or around six to six and a half with.

The case supports both USB-C and Qi wireless charging, which gives you plenty of flexibility for charging at home or on the go. The earbuds feature a decent IP54 rating and support both AAC and SBC codecs along with Qualcomm’s AptX adaptive standard.

Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay EQ will be released globally on August 19 and will be available in both gold and black finishes. The premium buds are priced at $399, which is spendy but still in line with the brand. You can sign up on the company’s site now to be notified once they’re in stock.
