Described as a product that was engineered for gaming and designed for life, the Beoplay Portal is now available for purchase as the first wireless gaming headset by Scandinavian audio masters Bang & Olufsen. The most distinctive feature is the lack of a classic boom arm, which has been replaced by a virtual one that uses directional beamforming.

In addition to the aforementioned technology, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal comes with earpads made using lambskin-wrapped memory foam, adaptive active noise cancellation, support for Dolby Atmos for Headphones, connectivity via Bluetooth 5.1 with support for the aptX Adaptive, AAC, and SBC codecs, and a 1,200 mAh non-replaceable Lithium-Ion battery. The autonomy goes up to 24 hours with Bluetooth and ANC, but drops to only 12 hours when using this headset with Xbox wireless, Bluetooth and ANC.

Those who want to know more about the audio specifications should be happy with the data below:

  • Drivers: 40 mm electro-dynamic with Neodymium magnets
  • Impedance: 24 Ohm (+/- 15%)
  • Frequency response: 20 Hz - 22 kHz
  • Sensitivity: 95 dB, 1 mw @ 1 kHz

The charging time required to bring the battery to full capacity is roughly 2 hours. Although the design is far from the usual RGB madness present in most gaming headsets nowadays, the Beoplay Portal comes with three color choices: Black Anthracite, Grey Mist, and Navy. The retail package includes a flight adapter, a 3.5 mm stereo cable and a USB-A to USB-C cable, but the wireless dongle must be purchased separately.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
