Review: Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal
For both music and games
Bang & Olufsen tries to kill two birds with one stone by making a combination of gaming headsets and headphones.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal
By far the most beautifully designed gaming headset on the market. Top wearing comfort. ANC. Touch operation.
For Xbox only. ANC too wind sensitive for outdoor use. Costs far, far too much. Touch operation.
