I thought it could be that but "What would you do if you could change your mood at any given moment?" Seems quite overreaching for a headphone release??

Dont they call the equalizer in the Beoplay app a mood wheel?

I tried them yesterday. They are nice, but they are not revolutionary.

Nice charging dock, and magnets that keeps them together when not in use. The magnets also turns them off when they connect.

I guess the Beoplay app will be updated, so the sound can be changed via the app.

The stock sound was ok, I only listened to 3 songs, and I was not very critical.

Nice product, but a bit high price.and they are plastic, so not the same quality feel as the h3's.

I think metal would be tricky with the bluetooth.

 

Am still looking for confirmation on battery life, 4 hours was posted in the H5 thread but am hoping that is incorrect and that itnwill be more.

Got an e-mail, and took just one look at the picture...

Pretty clear, if you ask me!

Which is not a very wise decision from the marketing department, regarding the current situation around the world and the refugee problems in Europe...

Politics speeches apart, my dealer showed me them this morning. H5 is a great product.

They're lighter than I expected. Little bit bigger than H3, battery issues, I guess. They have magnets that permit to convert them in a "necklace", when not in use. When they're attached with the magnets, they go automatically to stand by.

Only two colors: all black and black/pink.

And the sound, well, it's B&O Wink

I agree with Brigantius. I don't like the turn this thread has taken. Can we get back to talking about the headphones, please?

This is probably the most disappointing thread I've read on this forum.

 

People come here to read about b&o - not read racist dribble.

... Let's all calm down-  let him who is without sin cast the first stone :-)

And rejoice in the inner works of the H5. 

It is mostly British actually, Standard CSR (Qualcomm now) implementation, on a Flex Rigid board from the top tier Taiwanese based PCB vendor Unmicron.

The BT antenna size and location allows for good performance, which explains why the SAW filter is missing,- I hope!

The whole thing is powered by a Varta CP1254 50mAh battery, not the best in terms of capacity, but definitely the most expensive single part in the set!

Battery is made in Germany of course! Whereas the assemble apparently has to be done in China!

I am very curious about the perception of the noise floor,- the Achilles heel of the chip.

If battery is 50mAh then 4 hour life is probably right. But thats not leading class. 

 

Jaybirds X2 manage 8 hours and they per specs managed to squish a 100mAh into same size buds.

 

4 hours, if future phones really come without 3.5mm plug is not enough

Moderators, really??. You are allowing this type of offensive language on Beoworld?

With all the recent bad feeling there has been on this site of late which has promptly been removed, I can't believe these deeply offensive, and to me disgusting comments are being tolerated here.

They do nothing but damage the reputation of this site and the B&O name itself.

No further input from me on this, I'm too disappointed and angry to lower myself to this level again.

There have been some stupid comments for sure, please indentify the posts which have offended you with quotes showing how they have offended you.

 

Then let us see if the people involved learn from their mistakes.

 

Intolerance is intorlerable and sometimes hard to turn around. Ignorance on the other hand sometimes with a bit of guidance can be put right, so by airing your greivances you might just stop this happening again.

Hi guys

How has the M3 lasted in the bathroom.

I am thinking of putting it in my gazebo on the pillar.

It’s protected against rain and direct water and can come in the house in winter.

Any problems in the bathroom?

I like the idea of wall mount.
