Fans of high-end TWS earphones with active noise cancelling now have a new choice. Bang & Olufsen has launched the Beoplay EQ which are the first TWS earphones from the company to feature ANC coupled with its signature premium sound.

Danish premium audio maker Bang & Olufsen is back with its latest set of TWS earphones, the new Beoplay EQ. They are targeted at the luxury segment of the market but come with a decent amount of technology packed in to help justify the price of admission. Where it looks to differentiate itself from the competition, in particular, is its ability to deliver clear audio calling.

To achieve a high-quality call experience from the Beoplay EQ, Bang & Olufsen has built in six microphones (three on each side) that use directional beamforming technology to deliver what the company calls ‘crystal clear’ calls. Naturally, these mics do double-duty by also working with the in-built DSP to cancel out surrounding noise. They also work to capture ambient sound when the Transparency Mode is activated.

The listening experience should be first-rate too with a new 6.88 mm electro-dynamic driver delivering the audio. With ANC enabled, Bang & Olufsen says the Beoplay EQ will deliver 6.5 hours of sound and up to 20 hours in combination with the Qi-enabled battery case. They are also dust and water-resistant and come with an IP54 rating. iPhones are supported over an AAC Bluetooth connection while Android users can enjoy sound over the higher quality aptX Adaptive format.

The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EQ come in Black Anthracite and Sand Gold colors and are priced as US$399. They will ship from August 19.

Buy the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 TWS earphones from Amazon for US$265.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
