Bang & Olufsen ready for iPhone

Bluetooth headphones can be a bit lousy when it comes to sound quality, thanks to the way it transfers the media.

However, with Apple apparently ditching the headphone jack on the next iPhone, someone's going to have to find a solution for those who like high quality audio.

Well, audio specialists Bang & Olufsen have got tongues wagging with the release of some wireless headphones from their sister company, B&O Play.

The BeoPlay H5 wireless earbuds could be the very thing, but they'll cost you. And of course, they're not iPhone specific, so anyone can use these with a compatible device.

B&O say that the H5 'phones can play high-res files, and also supports the aptX codec, which promises "CD-like quality" sound, even though there's a generation of young people who have no idea whether 'CDQ' is a good thing or not.

For the nerds who need more than 'they sound really good when we tried them', the headphones have a 6.4mm dynamic driver in each earbud with an overall impedance of 16 Ohm, and they have a frequency range between 20 and 20,000Hz. Okay? Good.

They will last for 5 hours of continuous playback before you'll need to recharge them again, and the BeoPlay H5s are available right now, and come in black, or dusty rose colours.

Yours for £199, here.
