B&O PLAY unveils their brand new, ultra flexible, on-ear headphones: the BeoPlay H2

Designed by Jakob Wagner, the Danish industrial designer behind the BeoPlay H6 and BeoPlay H3, the BeoPlay H2 sports very familiar design cues that Bang & Olufsen fans will at once recognize and enjoy. Going with a textile covering for the headband and ear cup, Wagner has given the BeoPlay H2 a fashion aesthetic with a more “clothing-like” appeal, allowing the headphone to perfectly complement your lifestyle.

Despite weighing in at just 150g, the BeoPlay H2 is extremely strong and resistant to wear and tear as it’s made from durable composites and rugged textiles – with the inclusion of genuine lambskin coverings to give your ears a luxuriously comfortable listening experience. Add that to the signature Bang & Olufsen sound that’s delivered via the BeoPlay H2’s 40mm custom Neodymium drivers and you’ll get a thoroughly enjoyable experience that brings you music the way the artists intended you to hear it.

the BeoPlay H2 incorporates fabrics readily, making it somewhat of a fashion accessory.

The adaptive design means the headphones will fit you perfectly both on your ears and around your neck, because the headband flexes to fit the size of your head perfectly when they’re on your ears, and returns back to original after. What’s more, the ear pads and mono arms have been angled the slightly for optimal ergonomics so the headphone hangs flat around your neck when not in use, perfectly following the shape of your body.

There’s also a three-button remote with microphone that lets you control music and make calls with a single touch, and variety of cable accessories will be launched from January 2015 to fit your different uses: A short 0.5m audio cable ideal for the breast pocket or more active scenarios, a long 2.5m audio cable for relaxing in the living room and a cable specifically suited for Android devices.

Three colorway options for the BeePlay H2: Feldspar Green,Carbon Blue, and Silver Cloud.

The BeoPlay H2 is available now for S$299 in Feldspar Green,Carbon Blue, and Silver Cloud at select Apple Stores, AV One, Challenger, Courts, ConnectIT, Digital Style, Gadget World, Harvey Norman, Newstead, Parisilk, Sprint-Cass (Changi Airport T1, T2 & T3), SoundWaves Studio, Stereo, Ban Leong & Swee Lee.
