The Beoplay E4 brings forth the sound of silence

Enviable style and peace are yours the second you plug in

As the old adage goes, "Silence is golden." Bang & Olufsen, the technology style mavens, took that sentence seriously when they created the active noise-cancelling (ANC) Beoplay E4. While the striking in-ear pieces aren't the brand's first ANC earphones, the difference comes with the massive technological improvement — it can now suppress more than 15dB more low-frequency noise than its previous technology. This means an additional passive noise isolation, so whether you're in a roaring plane or getting your nails done, the power of cutting off all outside noise is in your hands. A swift tap and your favourite tunes flood your being.

Ready to immerse back into society? The Beoplay E4's new transparency mode lets you turn off the music and ANC at the same time to tune back into your surroundings with one quick gesture — which means you'll never miss office gossip ever again. Each earpiece is crafted from beautiful lightweight aluminum, which makes them incredibly robust and scratch resistant. Design-wise, the battery unit is sleeker and more user-friendly, complete with a polymer surface to give it greater tactility and durability. With a full charge, the battery can run the ANC for up to 20 hours, which is long enough for any direct flight to Europe and the USA. Screaming babies onboard? Hello, Beoplay E4, and good night world.
