Bang & Olufsen has finally unveiled their own noise-canceling true wireless earbuds. They’re called Beoplay EQ and make quite a compelling case although they’re not in any way cheap.
Beoplay EQ is the first ANC pair of earbuds from the Danish manufacturer, putting together the audio features the brand is so popular for.
There are six mics in total, four of which are for noise cancellation, two on each side. The other mics are for making calls. The form factor is nothing new: the earbuds are rounded and come with silicon tips from the get-go.
The Beoplay EQ offers 6.5 hours with ANC on or 7.5 hours without it. With case, you can take advantage of 20 hours of usage. Also, you can charge it through the USB-C cable or using Qi charging.
Qualcomm’s AptX adaptive standard is supported, so you’ll find the earbuds adapting to the various situations and environments you find yourself in throughout the day. Don’t worry – the earbuds have IP54 rating.
While we haven’t tested them yet, they should do a decent job at least, considering the Bang & Olufsen legacy. However, they cost $50 more than the Beoplay E8 and definitely more than the AirPods Pro and WF-1000XM4.

In fact, at $399, are they worthwhile if you’re not a B&O fan? You tell us!
Either way, the Beoplay EQ will officially land this August 19th, in black and gold.
