Technology has been fluidly moving in accordance with the change of times.

This isn’t just any other bluetooth earset; this is Beoplay’s 2018 edition. Taking inspiration from their classic earset from the ’90s, the brand has preserved the functional design aspects of its predecessor while debuting a fresh new look for the millennials. Users can also easily modify the angle of the earbud, height of the piston and the curve of the earhook to ensure a perfect fit.
And you can always expect the best from B&O.The iconic earhook encompasses sections of soft rubber and a hex screw to deliver a comfortable and secure fit behind the ear. Apart from that, there’s a unique sound tuning feature, which allows the speaker to sit inside the ear and not in too deep, just so it doesn’t entirely block off ambient sounds. The resulting acoustics are also perceived as a clearer one — with the earbud adapted to ensure an optimal angle for sound performance.
You can effortlessly control your music, pick up calls or activate Siri — via bluetooth and its built-in microphone — without touching that iPhone in your purse. Now who’s to say this blast from the past isn’t actually paving the way for the future?
