PETER-EMIL
If you find yourself visiting one of the hip bars in the Meatpacking District of Copenhagen chances are you’d find Peter-Emil mixing the cocktails.
Peter-Emil works as a bartender and in his spare time he enjoys cooking food for his friends – and a great bottle of red wine. He kicks back while reading Albert Camus and listening to all the
vinyl LP’s he collects. If you check out the record sleeves you’ll run into Bill Callahan, Miles Davis and Jonathan Wilson.

MIKKEL
A student of interactive design and lover of music, Mikkel is an active user of the city.
When he is not cooking for his friends – or having a great time while listening to Woodkid or Chinese Man, Mikkel is a busy urbanite. One weekend it’s poken word performances taking up the time
on his packed schedule, the next it’s going to the movies or kickin’ it with the boys at Kind of Blue – the local jazz bar where they listen to Miles and Ella.

NINA
When Nina is not busy writing her thesis on architecture, there’s a good chance you’ll be finding her teaching yoga or riding her MTB in the woods.
Music fills up Nina’s life: When she’s out in the city enjoying architecture, riding her bikes or teaching yoga it’s always with music as the backdrop. She spends loads of time searching Spotify
and SoundCloud for new cool stuff to listen to and if you take a peek at Nina’s playlist you will encounter everything from Nicolas Jaar to Ellie Goulding and Bon Iver.

MADS
Mads works as a digital designer – and the world of design is what takes up most of his time.
If the music is groovy you can count me in, says Mads. He and his girlfriend just renovated their entire apartment to the tune of The Black Keys. When you bump into Mads at one of the city’s
concert venues it’s probably something like Quadron – but if he could pick a dream gig it would be the immaculate Led Zeppelin. Rock on!.

GREAT SOUND
THROUGH THE CITY

Whether you’re cruising through the city on your bike – or chilling in the park listening to the latest tunes, Form 2i is a great companion.

Form 2i delivers an impressive and honest sound performance.

The soundstage is well-defined – it’s a combination of a good bass, a focused middle and precise highs. The ambition is simple: To bring you sound the way the artists intended it – with no tweaks or over-emphasized bass.

The light weight of Form 2i combined with its comfortable fit makes the headphones extremely pleasant to wear – even for that 3 hour long DJ-set you just discovered online.

The microphone and remote are aptly placed on the cord just below you cheek – giving you control of your phone with a single touch or two. Quite handy when you’re out and about!

A TRUE
DESIGN ICON

FEATURED AT MOMA

Form 2 was designed more than 30 years ago – in 1983 by the then 23-year old Steve McGugan. It hit the streets in 1985 to instant critical success – so much in fact that in 1992 it was included in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York

Today it’s the longest living headphone in the world – and widely considered a true design icon.

While we’re really proud to have it displayed in a museum and hailed as a piece of art, we’d much rather see it on your head.

THE LEGACY LINE-UP

HISTORY OF B&O HEADPHONES

Bang & Olufsen introduced their first headphone, U70, back in 1978. Not many audio manufacturers can claim that many years of experience on the market. This means that principles introduced nearly four decades ago have been refined and developed further ever since.

Take a trip down memory lane and experience the development from Bang & Olufsen the headphones in the early years until today, marked by the launch of two completely new headphones.

U70

Manufactured 1978-1984
Designed by Jacob Jensen

U70 headphones were lightweight (only 300 grams) by the standards of their time and even back then, the main objectives were maximum comfort, great style and unequaled quality in the listening experience.

The ear cups could be individually adjusted both vertically and laterally, and locked into position. You could also adjust their height using the inner headband. U70 was replaced by Form 1.

FORM 1

Manufactured 1985-1997
Designed by Jacob Jensen

Form 1 represents Scandinavian minimalism in product design at its finest. The headphones combined excellent sound reproduction with customisation.

Based on the fact that no two heads are created alike, Bang & Olufsen designed a stereo headphone that was easily adjustable for maximum comfort. Also, Form 1 meant a cleaner, more simple take on headphone design.

FORM 2

Manufactured 1985-2013
Designed by Steve McGugan

A natural evolution of Form 1, Form 2 brought an even lighter and more sleek feel to the iconic design. Form 2 weighs in at only 86 grams and comes in a variety of colours.

A true testament to the timelessness of its design, and a part of MoMA’s permanent collection, Form 2 stands out in the lineup by having been in production for more than 25 years and counting, a claim no other headphone can make.

EARSET 3i

Manufactured 2000-present
Designed by Anders Hermansen

Focusing on mobility and movement, Earphones were crafted to be ultra-lightweight and extremely adjustable.

Earset 3i was Bang & Olufsen’s first take on an in-ear headset, and it’s held a central place in the lineup for more than a decade. With the rising popularity of mobile phones, Earphones were updated, adding a remote control and microphone, and renamed EarSet 3i.

H3

Manufactured 2013-present
Designed by Jakob Wagner

Crafted from a solid block of metal, BeoPlay H3 is an ultra-light earphone that stands on the shoulders of its predecessors, carrying forward the traditions of precision acoustics and craftsmanship, of building products that are able to reproduce the original sound material as authentically as possible. It’s a design that honours tradition but meets today’s demand for style.

H6

Manufactured 2013-present
Designed by Jakob Wagner

BeoPlay H6 is crafted from luxurious materials and makes a bold statement in terms of design. With a choice of black or natural leather, it is a perfect match for the style-conscious consumer who refuses to compromise quality in sound, design or craftsmanship.

The ear pads are made from soft lambskin, and the headband from the more rugged cow leather, a combination that ages well and only looks more beautiful with use.

FORM 2i

Manufactured 2014-present
Designed by Steve McGugan (1983)

Form 2i builds upon the popularity of its predecessor, Form 2 the simple and streamlined headphones that have managed to stay relevant and chic for decades since its introduction in 1985.

Form 2i brings you the same impressive look and sound as back in the days of Form 2 but also features improved comfort design plus a microphone and remote that lets you control your device or phone straight from the cord.
