Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay EQ is the first true wireless headphone to provide not just active noise cancellation, but adaptive noise cancellation. While that feature is a potential game changer, buyers should take into account that B&O has prioritized audio fidelity over isolating the listener from the outside world.
With that out of the way, the Beoplay EQ is B&O’s best-performing, best-fitting, best-designed true wireless headphone to date. It’s also the smallest the company has ever made. It raises the bar in nearly every area over its previous true wireless headphone, including the Beoplay E8 Sport true wireless headphone that I had the opportunity to sample last year.
