Why choose the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal gaming headset?

We can't stress highly enough, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal headphones are a great all-rounder for gaming and outdoor use.

Designed to look like classic B&O over-ears, they are made from premium materials and look as far removed from conventional gaming headsets as you can get.

They can be used wirelessly with the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Xbox One, thanks to built-in 2.4GHz connectivity that works seamless with the consoles. Add an optional Xbox dongle to your PC and they'll connect to that too.

You can also connect them to any Bluetooth device, such as an iPhone or Android handset, for more general use.

There's Dolby Atmos support and active noise cancellation on board, so you won't be distracted by ambient sounds while you game or listen to music on the train. And, it includes a beam-forming array of microphones to talk to fellow gamers as you play - there's no mic boom to get in the way.

Battery life is claimed to last up to 12 hours when playing wirelessly on an Xbox, up to 24 hours if you are using Bluetooth with ANC switched on.
