Existing Audio Line Gets Fashion Update
Audio accessories firm Bang & Olufsen has entered the fashion headphone market for the first time with three new limited edition versions of its BeoPlay H6 model.
The over ear design, previously available in black and natural colours, now features Blue Stone, Bronzed Hazel and Graphite Blush ear cup discs for autumn/winter 2014.
Pitched as a premium headphone, each of the new H6 models created by industrial designer Jakob Wagner is wrapped in cowhide leather and lambskin in shades of grey as well as dark and light brown.
Technical features include a set of 40mm drivers, internal bass port, dual 3.5mm headphone jacks, daisy-chain music sharing functionality, inline remote and microphone.
Vice president of the Danish company’s B&O Play line, Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, said: “Today’s headphones are just as much fashion accessories as they are products used for music listening and phone conversations.”
It follows a number of BeoPlay H6 releases, including a collaboration with Pepsi’s Live for Now range in May earlier this year.
All three limited edition headphones are available to buy via the B&O Play online store now.
