If you’re an audiophile willing to splurge on a sleek audio system that delivers great sound, then Bang & Olufsen‘s new Earset and Beoplay P6 will probably have you swooning.
It was the sleek and ergonomic design of the B&O Earset that caught our attention at first glance. Besides a battery life of up to five hours, the Earset comes with three buttons and a built-in microphone. Store it in the accompanying pouch when not in use to protect it from scratches.
Unlike typical earpieces, users are able to adjust their Earset — from the angle of the earbud to the height of the piston or the curve of the earhook.
Also, though most earpieces boast of noise-cancelling properties, the Earset has been designed to allow users to pick up ambient sounds while using the earpiece without compromising on sound quality.
Available in two colour options, you can pick up the Graphite Brown version at various retailers now and White will be in stock from June 2018 onwards.
Available in two colours, Black and Natural, the Beoplay P6 is a powerful Bluetooth speaker that’s hardy, nifty and beautiful. It’s supposed to be dust-proof and splash-proof with a play time of up to 16 hours, making it probably more reliable than your best bud.
Place it at the center of a room and it’ll fill up the whole space with its powerful 360-degree sound dispersion. It’s pocket-sized and we thought that the stylish leather strap was a nice touch that’s both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Pair it with your Siri or Google Assistant and you can even pick up calls on the handy device!
If you’re looking for something that’ll provide you with top-notch sound quality, the B&O Headset (S$429) and the Beoplay P6 (S$629) are worth the investment. Head down to official retailers like Grand Hyatt, Takashimaya, Analogue +, Changi Airport Duty Free, Newstead, Tangs or Robinsons to test out the quality for yourself!
Prices: S$429 – S$629
