Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal Gaming Headset
When it comes to high-end headphones, it would be hard to find a better company than Bang & Olufsen. While the Danish high-end consumer electronics company has an excellent reputation for its splashes of world-class electronics, its audio gear really takes the cake. At the top of Bang & Olufsen’s line of headphones and earphones are its gaming-focused Beoplay headphones, which have developed a voracious following due to their unrivaled quality. Now Bang & Olufsen is adding to its audio dominance with an updated pair of Beoplays that seem to appeal to an even wider swath of the gaming community.
Updated Beoplay Portal triggers on all cylinders. From appearance to performance to comfort, Bang & Olufsen has made it clear that these headphones are above the rest. These beautiful cans deliver high-fidelity 3D audio to make users feel completely immersed in their video games. By leveraging Dolby Atmos technology, the Beoplay Portal delivers a surround sound experience with powerful bass, crisp highs and deep mids. The company has also used several powerful microphones to create a “virtual boom” that works like a traditional gaming mic without the clunky plastic extension getting in the way.
The main update to the Beoplay Portal, however, is Playstation compatibility. The OGs only worked with PC and Xbox, but this latest version adds Sony’s hit console to the mix. The headphones are also Bluetooth compatible so users can also pair them with their other devices, including mobile gaming devices like the Nintendo Switch. But the Beoplay portal doesn’t stop impressing there. Its battery life is staggering, delivering 19 hours of wireless PC and Playstation gaming to take full advantage of the Portal’s capabilities. If you’re not using the Portal with your PC or Playstation, it has an immense Bluetooth 42 battery life, even with noise cancellation active.
Performance capabilities aside, these earbuds look fantastic, sporting a sleek and contemporary design. It’s safe to say that Bang & Olufsen, once again, have outdone themselves when crafting these elite gaming headphones. The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal gaming headphones are $499 and available now.
