Summary

B&O Beoplay EQ are the first noise-cancelling in-ear true wireless headphones from the Danish marque. They stand up with the best when it comes to audio quality, but there are a few fit and usability quirks that mean they fall slightly behind the best of the very top buds. The balance they strike between audiophile-baiting sound quality, the strong level of noise cancellation and the tidy design is truly impressive, and they might be the best buy for you for that reason.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Sentiment Score[*] 75%
Reviewers from t3 have found the following[***]:
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 sound just as good (and I slightly prefer their audio profile overall), though the noise cancellation and battery are weaker. The active noise cancellation is pretty good in most casts – this is one area where it beats the competition at the same price. They have some foibles in their fit and controls, but nothing that's a dealbreaker, and the audio quality is like a velvet blanket to wrap yourself up in.

Reviewers from techhive have found the following[***]:
The Beoplay EQ did a wonderful job rendering a lush, intimate presentation. With transparency mode active, human voices were oh-so slightly recessed. If you buy this headphone, learn how to twist and lock the buds into your ears. It might not be the absolute best in every category, but it renders it worthy of consideration.

  • Comfortable fit

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EQ use a pair of electrodynamic 6.8mm full-range drivers. Wireless connectivity is via Bluetooth 5.2. There are a total of six mics across the pair of earbuds, which deal with call quality and active noise-cancellation. Control is available via the exemplary B&O Sound control app, as well as by touch using the big, responsive capacitive surface on each earbud.
