Neckbuds have been the ugly cousin of the wireless headphone world since inception, too many 'sporty' designs and 'active' touches have left them ugly and impractical, Bang & Olufsen, in typical Bang & Olufsen fashion, seek to reverse that trend with the new Beoplay H5 Wireless neckbuds.
Available in black or pink, the stylish and utilitarian design means these are neckbuds you want to wear. Add to this clever touches, such as magnets built in so that when you remove them you can wear them as a sort of necklace to prevent any risk of losing them, and the usb charger which also uses the same magnets to hold the earbuds in place, meaning no annoying plug in irritation, and you have the most desirable neckbuds on the market.
Now the bad. A five hour playtime, thats barely enough to get through a gruelling commute, lunchtime run, and quick listen at home. Forget netflix marathons on these babies, unless you are a very occasional user, these are not the headphones for you.
