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.

H2

Manufactured 2014-present
Designed by Jakob Wagner

Flexible, and light weight, the BeoPlay H2 sports adaptive fit technology that ensures a great fit on any head. And with a series of beautiful colours made from durable materials, the H2 also fits any style, and brings real personality to the headphone line up.

H8

Manufactured 2015-present
Designed by Jakob Wagner

BeoPlay H8 tops our headphone line up, merging the very best in materials, an exquisite design with attention to every detail, and impressive sound and an intuitive touch interface. That is why we pride ourselves in calling this, not only the most advanced headphone we’ve ever made, but simply, the best.

POSITIVELY ADDICTIVE
RANGLEKLODS Musicians
RANGLEKLODS BIOGRAPHY
Rangleklods
It shines through immediately that Esben and Pernille, together simply Rangleklods, are used to playing off each other’s energy. They don’t finish each other’s sentences, but rather build on them, all the time adding different perspectives to the conversation.

Asked about their genre of music and influences, Rangleklods are crystal clear:
We draw from a huge range of influences, and we are in no way a genre act. Anything from motown over really heavy hip hop to indie rock like Radiohead is part of our common frame of reference.
Having enjoyed underground success in Denmark for some time, other countries are quickly realizing that the duo has potential. Germany, France, Spain and Italy as well as most of eastern Europe have welcome the duo with open arms.

Part of the success can be contributed to the dedication to craftsmanship that Rangleklods posses. And great acoustic craftsmanship also demands something of the audience. Front man Esben knows exactly how they feel. In his own words, "Great Sound is positively addictive!"

Mads Emil INTRODUCTION
HIP HOP AND SOUL IS THE
NEAREST AND DEAREST
TO MY HEART
MADS EMIL GROVE MØLLER DJ, blogger and PR professional
Mads Emil BIOGRAPHY
Mads Emil Grove Møller
Coordinated from head to toe, sporting crisp, white Nikes from 2004, Mads Emil leaves nothing to chance when it comes to appearance. Even the tattoos on his arms - a Tupac quote on one arm and a Biggie quote on the other, were done by artists that actually did work for the two hip hop giants.

Mads Emil has thrown himself in a multitude of disciplines, all of which tie back to a life-long devotion to his true passion, the hip hop community. In his own words:

"I've always been into Hip Hop. Since way before it went as mainstream as it is today. Most people don’t know this about me, but I actually listen to all kinds of music, depending on my mood and on the situation, but hip hop and Soul is the nearest and dearest to my heart.”
Mads Emil runs the wildly popular Creolbrothers.com with his brother Kriss, an art director working out of LA. The blog serves up a balanced mix of posts about art and advertising - as provided by Kriss - and music and fashion, with a particular bias towards sneakers - as provided by Mads Emil. Mads Emil explains:
WHAT KEEPS OUR CONTENT FRESH IS DEFINITELY THE FACT THAT, WHILE WE SEE EYE TO EYE ON MOST THINGS, WE DEFINITELY BRING DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES TO THE TABLE.

KRISTOFFER INTRODUCTION
TO ME, MUSIC
IS LIFE ITSELF
KRISTOFFER SAKURAI Stylist and principal dancer
KRISTOFFER BIOGRAPHY
Kristoffer Sakurai
Kristoffer stands out in the crowd. From the second he enters the room you feel his presence. He moves in front the camera like he was born to do it, and quickly creates a certain vibe in the room.

"Music plays an enormous part of my life. Having been a principal dancer at the Royal Danish Ballet, music has always been with me. It carries so much emotion. I mean, when performing you sometimes convey an entire life in the matter of an evening. From cradle to grave. That is laborious, but also extremely interesting. I have felt truly moved and privileged being able to express myself artistically to music."
Kristoffer is intrigued with the business side of fashion, and though his work as a stylist gives him a great creative outlet, he also enjoys the combination of creativity and measurable results that he gets from bringing sales into the mix. The combination gives his professional life a dynamic quality he truly enjoys.

While classically trained, Kristoffer enjoys all kinds of music. "To me, music is life itself. That may sound cliché, but
LISTENING TO MUSIC REALLY GIVES ME ENERGY, THAT IS CENTRAL TO WHO I AM.

BUSINESS FORWARD
TRINE KJÆR Blogger, stylists and entrepreneur
TRINE BIOGRAPHY
Trine Kjær
You expect a high profile fashionista to be a bit of a diva, but Trine enters the room with a positive attitude, a curious outlook and a genuine interest in the world around her.

Trine is best known in the Danish blogosphere as a dedicated fashion blogger. But there is more to her than posting for the sake of showing off her outfits. In fact, meeting Trine, you quickly get the sense that behind the fashionista exterior beats the heart of a driven business woman. Trine explains:

"I started my first company at 19. I quickly found out that I was probably too impatient to go into classic creative traits, and journalism in the original sense did not appeal much to me either, so blogging seemed like a good way to combine the two and create something of my own. I thrive on creating things and driving business forward."
While Trine's choice in music isn't necessarily reflected in her wardrobe, there are certain elements that may well be attributed to the type of music that dominates her playlists:
THE FACT THAT I JUST LOVE GOLDEN JEWELRY, AND I OWN TONS OF IT. THAT MIGHT ACTUALLY BE A REFLECTION OF MY LOVE OF HIP HOP.
