Bang & Olufsen engineers are always searching for the next way to enhance listening experiences and in recent years, the world of gaming has presented itself as an increasingly compelling pastime. Gaming can be as immersive as watching a movie with surround sound – with the right headphones.
Bang & Olufsen
Our journey into gaming
Designed for XBOX
Virtual Boom Arm
We accepted the challenge to create a product that would enable gamers to experience their favourite games like never before; and then easily switch off their gaming session and smoothly transition into enjoying music or podcasts with the same sleek pair of headphones
Sound and performance are fundamental pillars for Bang & Olufsen, deeply connected to the values of bringing amazing sound experiences, innovation, and long-lasting products to life. Now, we’re applying our long-established core principles to the world of gaming.
With a little help from our partners at XBOX
With our shared passion for immersive and dynamic experiences, we have teamed up with XBOX to bring a precise and powerful sound experience to your gaming. Beoplay Portal have been designed with maximum performance in mind – a pledge that guarantees an enhanced gaming experience on XBOX.
Tailored to the desires of Xbox fans, our wireless gaming headphones are the first product in the Designed for XBOX Limited Series X|S, bringing a premium experience to XBOX gaming. The wireless low latency connection between Beoplay Portal and XBOX make them the ideal choice if you prefer cable free gaming. Also, the Virtual Boom Arm gives you high quality speech without the presence of the ubiquitous and sometimes frustrating physical boom arm.
The Virtual Boom Arm and other state of the art technologies
NEW LOOK, HIGH PERFORMANCE
Virtual boom arm
The most innovative part of Beoplay Portal may be the Virtual Boom Arm, which replaces that physical boom with an array of powerful, directional microphones. This gave us the freedom to design a pair of gaming headphones that had a new, non-traditional look.
EXCLUSIVE FOR XBOX
Low latency connection
Using the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 you will get the same swift and stable connection for gaming on your PC. You can enjoy the same via a USB-C connection, which will also charge your headphones during use.
Dolby Atmos Surround Sound
When connecting in all three ways, Beoplay Portal will deliver amazing virtual surround sound through Dolby Atmos for Headphones. This high-end technology places the sounds of the game all around you with three-dimensional precision, so you can react faster and more accurately - making you feel as though you are in the midst of the action every time.
WORKING WITH ASTRALIS
A pro gamer stamp of approval
By working with Danish esports team Astralis, Bang & Olufsen engineers have been able to provide gamers with state-of-the-art headphones and also receive feedback from professional players. This valuable information helped our product developers create gaming headphones that are as perfect for gaming as they are for losing yourself in music while travelling or relaxing.
