It has taken a while but Bang & Olufsen has finally released its first true wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation and it's called the Beoplay EQ.

Like the other Beoplay headphones, the Beoplay EQ is made out of expensive materials and has a high price tag.

These earbuds have an in-ear design and the housing is made from anodised aluminium and the earbuds have an IP54 dust and water resistance rating.

Unlike most brands which provide plastic charging cases, the Beoplay EQ has an aluminium charging case. The base is rubber-coated and it supports wireless charging.

Inside the Beoplay EQ are 6.88mm dynamic drivers and the earbuds have six microphones that work together to cancel ambient noise and provide crystal clear calls.

The Beoplay EQ supports Bluetooth 5.2 and aptX Adaptive, AAC, and SBC wireless audio codecs.

Bang & Olufsen claims the Beoplay EQ can last for up to 6.5 hours on a single charge with noise cancellation activated and up to 20 hours with the charging case.
