Crutchfield: B&O PLAY Beoplay EarSet in-ear headphones
B&O PLAY Beoplay EarSet by Bang & Olufsen - Flexible adjustment system properly positions the earpiece
Our take on the B&O PLAY Beoplay EarSet by Bang & Olufsen by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
The Beoplay EarSet headphones adjust to the shape of your ears and play music wirelessly via Bluetooth.
Classic earbud design with a modern wireless twist
Back in the 90s, Danish designer Anders Hermansen created the industrial, almost steampunk-ish look of the original Bang & Olufsen EarSet. Now the company has updated these legendary in-ear headphones with some of today's most convenient features. The new Beoplay EarSet will play music wirelessly from your phone via Bluetooth. And you can control your tunes and volume using the handy in-line remote.
Comfortable fit that stays put
The EarSet's design is as functional as it is striking. Flexible rubber hooks gently grip your ears, while a telescopic arm adjusts the earpieces into place. The arm's sturdy aluminum pistons slide smoothly to give you a secure, comfortable fit.
B&O headphones typically have a crisp sound — they reveal musical details found in the highs and upper mids. The EarSet's large 14.2mm drivers are held properly into place by the adjustable earpieces, so they can deliver the company's clear, well-rounded sound signature. And each earbud sports a semi-open design that produces a more spacious sound than you get from most in-ears.
To tweak the out-of-the-box sound, download the free Beoplay app to your Apple® or Android™ device. You can make tonal adjustments based on mood or genre.

Overview: Bang & Olufsen (B&O Play) EarSet is a premium Bluetooth wireless earphone with an adjustable earhook and a 20" connecting cable. EarSet is not inserted in the ear canal like traditional in-ear headphones. Instead, the 5/8" diameter electro-dynamic speaker rests inside the concha (the outer ear) and fits the contours and curves of the ear. The 14.2mm speaker element is mounted on a rubber polymer bar that can be raised or lowered along the telescopic anodized aluminum piston, and rotated for a comfortable fit. The integrated hinged ear hook, also made of anodized aluminum, can also be adjusted against the back of your ear to keep EarSet in place. EarSet comes with an in-line remote and microphone that is compatible with iOS and Android devices. The earphones come with three pairs of foam ear pads that fit over the speaker element for a more comfortable fit. When not in use, EarSet can be stored in the included soft cloth pouch.
Design: B&O Play EarSet weighs only about an ounce, and is comfortable to wear for hours. The dynamic full-range speaker element is constructed according to open loudspeaker principle, allowing in some environmental sounds. This allows you to run, walk, or bike safely without being totally cut off from the outside world. Bluetooth 4.2 wireless technology delivers the B&O Signature Sound without being tethered to your source device.
Controls: Earset has an in-line 3-button remote that lets you control your music playback and phone calls. The outer buttons control volume up and volume down. The center button lets you play/pause your music (1x press), answer/end phone calls (1x), skip to next track (2x), and skip to previous track (3x). The remote also has an omnidirectional microphone for conducting phone calls.
Rechargeable Battery: EarSet has a 95mAh rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery. The earphones charge in approximately two hours via the 49" USB charging cable. The cable has a USB-Type C plug for connecting to the left ear bud. A fully charged battery provides up to 5 hours of playback time at moderate volume levels. A 20 minute quick charge gives you about an hour of play time.
Beoplay App: You can enhance your listening experience with the free Beoplay App for Android, iOS, and watchOS. The ToneTouch feature lets you vary the tonality and sound staging to find just the right sound. Each B&O product has its own individually tuned presets, plus, you can select different listening presets to match your mood or activity. Any firmware updates for your headphones are automatically uploaded through the Beoplay App. The app is available for Android devices running version 5.0 and up, and for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch with iOS version 9.0 or later.
