    I’ll let the picture do the talking. From B&O’s own support pages (via Google).

    I have no idea what these are all about but I wish I could feel at least a little positive about their looks. How does something like this get an approval at B&O? RIP the clean look of the E8 3rd Gen.

    My guess is that it is cheap. They are missing cheap products in this segment.

    But that one is not for me, really ugly.

    Same price, I guessed wrong

The perfect place to keep your EX charged and protected.

    I don’t think the EX will be cheap. As far as I recall the E8 Sport was at a very similar price point to that of the E8 3rd Gen at the time. The EQ was more expensive than the E8 3rd Gen, so I’d say perhaps a price between the EQ and the E8 Sport.

    Thanks for the additional images. I like the colour options but I agree that this just looks horrid in my view. The earbuds remind me instantly of Apple Earpods and I get it that the “architecture” they are referring to has got its benefits, but in my view it blows up one of the core ideas about B&O, that being simplicity. This is basically admitting that they are unable to make the earbuds small enough without protruding parts. The most extreme I can go and that I have is to get a pair of EQs.

    I do find a good pair of earphones great to have where using headphones would be less practical, and I have got E6, E8 (1st, 2nd, 3rd gen), E8 Sport and EQ, I am definitely skipping the EX. Never been more certain about not wanting a B&O product :(. But then again, there are more practicality-focused customers than me. I just wish B&O could fix the size issue with the EQ first, instead of making compromises like the one we see with the EX.

    As for the “soul-stirring sound”, for that I have the H95.

    So the next one up is Beoplay 500. Hope those headphones will not be a similar disappointment.

    @Emilos88

    Where/how did you find the pics/information?

    When I try searching for Beoplay EX via the Support page, there is nothing.

    When I try via the Google picture result, I – on the B&O site – am greeted with a request for logging in…..which never happened before.

    Thanks!

    Which means, that they offer these new earbuds before B&O has launched them officially.

    ’Soul-stirring sound’…..that must be amazing 🫠

    Maybe B&O will finally have an earbud that has good voice call clarity.

    Going to get me a pair in glossy white.

    Wonder if anyone will think I’ve got a pair of cheap knock-off EarPods?

    This is odd – still not released (as far as I can see), but already unboxed/reviewed on YT:
