Bang & Olufsen just announced the BeoPlay H3 in-ear headphones under their B&O Play sub-brand. To get the best possible sound experience, B&O Play conducted extensive studies in the shape and curves of the human ear to find suitable geometries that minimize sound leakage and reveal all the fine details in the music at any given volume level.
BeoPlay H3 features a custom-designed 10.8 mm driver and the new Micro Bass Port for a dynamic and balanced full tone sound design. The structural rigidity of the aluminium body provides acoustic precision for a clear musical experience. Together with the 23 ventilation holes, BeoPlay H3 is tuned to deliver an unstrained open sound stage.
BeoPlay H3 is made of anodized high-grade aluminium. With the long history of material excellence in aluminum, B&O Play was able to construct a surprisingly light, as well as robust and scratch-resistant headphone. The housing of BeoPlay H3 is milled from a single block of high-grade solid aluminum.
B&O Play has collaborated with Danish industrial designer Jakob Wagner in the shaping of BeoPlay H3. Wagner is both trained as a mechanical engineer and industrial designer which make him skilled in all practical stages of the design process.
