Bang and Olufsen is a well-known brand when it comes to high-end audio products. Recently, the company announced its spring and summer 2018 collection, with highlights from portable speakers, wireless headphones, and more.

One of my favorite 2018 releases highlighted here is the Beoplay H4. This over-ear headphone set uses Bluetooth, has up to 19 hours of battery life, and looks fantastic. For more details on the Beoplay H4 and other 2018 releases, head below.

There are three different major releases in this collection. The Beoplay P2, a personal Bluetooth speaker with smart features that are activated by taps or shakes. Then there is the Beoplay A1, which is a circular Bluetooth speaker with “category-breaking” performance, and finally, the Beoplay H4 as already mentioned.

Let’s start with the most budget-friendly of the three, the Beoplay P2. This speaker goes for $169 and comes in a teal color, which both looks great and stands out at the same time.

Featuring up to 10 hours of battery life, splash and dust resistance, and motion gestures mean that you’ll enjoy using the Beoplay P2 for ages. You can customize, through the Beoplay App, what shaking and tapping the P2 does. There are no physical buttons on the P2, so you’ll fully interact with it through either tapping, shaking, or your phone and the app.

The next device is the Beoplay A1, a circular Bluetooth speaker selling for $249. The A1 is offered in Teal for this collection and has tons of great offerings.

With up to 24 hours of battery life, a built-in microphone, and even resistance to splashes and dust, this speaker is designed to keep going no matter where you are. The True360 Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound means that you’ll enjoy tunes no matter what genre you’re listening to.

Lastly, there’s the Beoplay H4. These uniquely-designed headphones will run you $299 and are offered in Aloe and Steel Blue as part of the Spring and Summer 2018 collection.

These headphones feature up to 19 hours of battery life, Bluetooth connectivity, Bang & Olufsen’s Signature Sound, and a fantastic design. You’re sure to be the center of the party when you show up wearing these.

There are some great releases here, and my favorite is the Beoplay H4. It’s unique style, long-lasting battery, and fantastic sound means it would have a place on my shelf for years to come.
