Bang & Olufsen has launched a new edition of its wireless gaming and lifestyle Beoplay Portal headphones, compatible with PC and PlayStation. The first generation Beoplay Portal headphones worked with Xbox.

The new Beoplay Portal PC PS edition also come with a new wireless dongle for faster connectivity, and boast improved battery life, up to 42 hours of continuous playtime using Bluetooth and Active Noise Cancellation; or 19 hours of wireless playtime with Active Noise Cancellation. 

Stylish enough to wear out and about, the Beoplay Portal feature an array of beamforming microphones used to isolate and amplify the user’s voice while cancelling out background noise. This Virtual Boom Arm means there’s no need for a physical mic stalk. 

To support extended wear, the earpads benefit from lambskin-wrapped memory foam…

A collaboration between Jakob Wagner and Bang & Olufsen’s design team, Beoplay Portal is available in Black Anthracite, Grey Mist, and Navy. The earcups feature touch sensitive aluminium discs with a distinctive gradient effect, produced using a proprietary anodization technique.

To support extended wear, the earpads benefit from lambskin-wrapped memory foam. The inner headband features offset padding, covered with a high-quality bamboo fibre textile, designed to relieve pressure on the top of the head. They weigh just 279 grams.

The Beoplay Portal feature custom-designed 40mm drivers with neodymium magnets, and a new generation of Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation technology that uses a combination of feed-forward and feed-back ANC.

The addition of Own Voice technology enables users to hear their own voices while cancelling out external sounds. In addition to 2.4GHz connectivity for PC and PlayStation, there’s Bluetooth 5.1 with aptX Adaptive.

The Beoplay Portal PC PS edition are available now, priced at £449.
