B&O Play already makes some of the most beautiful tech around, but the great Dane has rolled out some limited-edition colours to make its speakers and headphones even classier.
Ah, spring. A time for fresh daffodils, umbrellas, stuffing your face with chocolate in honour of a 2000-year-old Roman execution… But B&O is feeling the oceanic vibes about this hit-and-miss time of year, breaking out some briney shades for some of its best-loved models.
The gorgeous Beoplay H4 wireless headphones get two new colours: Aloe (light minty green) and Steel Blue (almost charcoal but with a hint of blue). Those shades are carried across not just some of the anodised aluminium, but also the braided cabling and lambskin-upholstered headband.
The same hues find their way onto the circular Beoplay A1 portable Bluetooth speaker.
The pocketable Beoplay P2 Bluetooth speaker gets just one special limited-edition springtime shade: Teal (like a mermaid’s tail). Although it’s arguably the tastiest of the lot.
The Beoplay H4 cost £249, while the Beoplay A1 is £229 and the Beoplay P2 costs £149.

These cans represent the best options on the market, depending on what you’re searching for. We’ve included a range of styles and prices.Concept albums may be a thing of the past, but long listening sessions pushed by streaming services with apparently unlimited options still have us all ears. However, even the best-sounding headphones can irritate your lobes after a time. Therefore it seems sensible for marathon listeners to invest in a set of comfy cans.The ideal way to describe Bang & Olufsen’s Play H4 is that they’re Isotoners on your ears. Their big, soft lambskin cups sit comfortably in your own skin, while the stainless steel headband provides a firm grip on your skull — but without squeezing too tight. Even though the H4s feel airy as they envelope your ear in sound, they are not overly bulky. And that is despite offering 19 hours of battery life, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, along with a 3.5millimeter audio jack for the infrequent times when you run out of juice. Perhaps their size looks manageable since the H4s have ditched gigantic ear-cup controls (popular on almost most every other pair of over-ear headphones) in favour of a few small playback buttons.As easy on the ears since the H4s are in terms of comfort, their sound is even kinder. A pleasant, wide soundstage allows you to take in snare drums and bass simultaneously. If you don’t like how the cans are tuned, you can easily fix them with the cleverly-designed Beoplay program.
