B&O PLAY, Copenhagen, 15 June 2017 – B&O PLAY today introduced Beoplay E4, the Danish lifestyle audio brand’s next generation active noise cancelling earphones (ANC). Designed as a stylish and essential accessory for commuters and travellers alike, Beoplay E4 brings you the power of silence, when and where you need it while always delivering on the precise and powerful audio quality that everyone has come to expect from a B&O PLAY product.
The new generation Beoplay E4 brings:
- Improved ANC – Beoplay E4 suppress up to 15dB more low frequency noise than previous technology. By using a two-microphone hybrid active noise cancelling technology, the same technology as in the headphone portfolio flagship Beoplay H9, Beoplay E4 registers incoming ambient noise and music from the earphones, separates the two and generates a signal that blocks out the unwanted noise from e.g. airplanes, trains and working environments.
- Enhanced Design – The battery unit is sleeker and more user friendly with a polymer surface to give it greater tactility and durability. The music control unit has also been redesigned to give a more easy and intuitive user experience and now comes in anodized aluminium for a premium look and feel.
- Unparalleled comfort – Each earpiece is crafted from lightweight aluminium, which make them incredibly robust and scratch resistant, and keeps the weight at an incredibly low 50g/0.76oz per piece. Beoplay E4 also comes with soft memory foam ear tips that provide all day comfort, while eliminating in-ear irritation and helps to passively block out ambient noise.
- Transparency Mode – with just one quick gesture you can turn off the music and ANC at the same time to tune into your surroundings. Using the same gesture will turn on ANC and start the music where you left off.
- Sound tuned for music lovers – Beoplay E4 strikes the perfect balance between sound, noise and silence. You can immerse yourself in the listening experience and enjoy all the beautiful details your music has to offer even in noisy environments.
