Bang & Olufsen is launching the H5, the company's first wireless pair of earbuds. Perfect for active use, the headphones feature a streamlined design that uses a braided textile inspired by sneakers. The housing of the buds are equally as durable with a rubber and polymer mix that's resistant to moisture and sweat. 

Magnetic attachments in the housing secure the ear pieces together for wearing around your neck and automatically shuts them off to conserve battery life. Battery life is rated at about five hours and connectivity happens via Bluetooth 4.2. Bang & Olufsen also created a Beoplay App with a ToneTouch interface that lets you easily tweak the sound profile.
