Shutting everyone out from your world is one of the easiest momentary getaways you can get without spending a dime. There’s always that window between being at home and at work where you just want to be unseen, and BeoPlay’s new active noise cancelling (ANC) in-ear headphones lets you do just that, and in style too. The brand has a strong history in design excellence, craftsmanship and product innovation. The new BeoPlay H3 ANC in-ear headphones were designed by award-winning Danish designer Jakob Wagner to suit urbanites who are conscious about aesthetics and lead an active lifestyle (a.k.a. you). He set out to create an in-ear headphone that would “sit beautifully in the outer ear – as a piece of jewellery”. He added, “The triangular form picks up the curves of the ear and blends in naturally.”
The BeoPlay H3 boasts 10.8mm electro-dynamic drivers to deliver that precise and powerful signature audio Bang & Olufsen is known for. Small built-in microphones measure ambient noise and sends a signal to the ANC circuit, which then changes it into “anti-noise” (reverse sound pattern) to reduce the unwanted noise so you can listen to your music as it should be heard. After Jakob and his team did extensive research on the shape and curve of the human ear, they were able to design the BeoPlay H3 ANC that is a comfortable and has personalised fit. Replaceable soft ear tips are included so you can try out different sizes to find the perfect fit for your ears.
B&O PLAY by BANG AND OLUFSEN BeoPlay H3 ANC, $379. Available at Apple Premium Resellers (EpiCentre, Nubox, iStudio) and authorised retailers (Challenger, Newstead, Sprint-Cass).
