Bang & Olufsen releases wireless gaming headset

Bang & Olufsen has now presented its first wireless gaming headset, Beoplay Portal.

The headset is made of premium material and uses two custom-made 40-millimeter drivers with neodymium magnets to provide accurate acoustic reproduction. The headphones also have Dolby Atmos and surround with low latency, adaptive active noise reduction, a mode where you can have the noise reduction on while you hear your own voice, an elegant user interface and a comfort made for long use.

The weight of the headphones is 282 grams and the battery of 1200 mAh should be enough for up to 24 hours of use with bluetooth and active noise reduction turned on or 12 hours with Xbox Wireless, bluetooth and active noise reduction. It is noteworthy that the microphone is not mounted on a boom, but is built into the headset itself. This has been made possible with the help of several directional microphones.

Beoplay Portal will be available via Bang & Olufsen’s website and selected retailers on April 29 and will be released in the colors “black anthracite”, “navy” and “gray mist”. Recommended price is SEK 5,199. A wireless dongle is also sold separately.
