Bang & Olufsen launches its first pair of noise-canceling true wireless earbuds

Bang & Olufsens Beoplay EQ headphones are the first true wireless noise-canceling headphones from Denmark. There are two microphones in each earbud that handle noise cancellation, and an additional mic to make calls. The total number of six earbuds is six. They will be available worldwide on August 19th in black or gold.The Beoplay E8 earbuds are $50 more expensive at $399 (359/399), than the non-noise cancelling Beoplay E8 E8 earbuds. The E8's impressive battery life of 35 hours per charge combined with the case and earbuds is not available to them. The Beoplay EQ can last around 20 hours if it is paired with the charging case. The earbuds' battery life is approximately the same. However, it can last for around six hours with ANC turned on and seven hours without. The charging is done via Qi or USB-C wireless charging.The Beoplay EQ supports Qualcomms AptX adaptive standards. This allows the earbuds to adjust wireless audio to suit your environment and the content you are listening to. They also support the AAC codecs and SBC codescs. The earbuds have an IP54 rating to protect against dust and water.The Beoplay EQ isn't cheap, as are all Bang & Olufsens products. The Beoplay EQ is $150 more expensive than Apple's AirPods Pro, and $120 more than Sony's WF-1000XM4, our current choice for the best noise-canceling headphones. What else could you ask for from a company that charges almost as much as the Xbox headset it is designed to use?
