I have been a long time fan of Bang and Olufsen in fact ever since I was a teenager many years ago I admired the quality of products they created and the superb sound of the audio equipment.
Bang and Olufsen was created in 1925 by Peter Bang & Svend Olufsen in Struer, a small town in the north western part of Denmark. Today B&O manufactures a highly distinctive range of TVs, music systems, loudspeakers, telephones, and multimedia products. Bang & Olufsen is sold in more than 100 countries.
Bang & Olufsen combines high sound technology, cutting edge design and high quality workmanship to create incredible audio and media products. I had a Bang & Olufsen earphone which I purchased many years ago during one of my trips from the airplane duty free shop and carried with me everywhere.
I really dislike big headphones and earphones usually don’t fit comfortably in my ears. Bang and Olufsen earphones have movable pieces that fit around your ear and you can position the speakers very tight to your ear or move them away both for listening as well as when you’re interrupted for conversations. So in another word you can adjust it for full comfort. They are also ideal and convenient since you don’t have to remove them to listen or carry a conversation you can simply tilt the speakers away from your ear without having to take them off. I have been using an iPhone and always had to fumble with the apple earphones so I decided to get the B&O earset 3i which also has a microphone and not only you can listen to your music but can have a clear conversations on your phone through the microphone. I was right, this easily replaced my apple earphone which kept falling from my ears and never really sounded as sharp and clear. This even replaced my Bluetooth earpiece which is not ideal for music nor is it as clear for holding phone conversations.
The B&O earset 3i is useful to wear on daily basis as well as really a great ear piece to take with you on the plane when you are traveling. This earset weighs only 22gr. Or 0/78 ox. It uses a standard mini jack and has a 50 - 20,000Hz frequency range. You can get the earphone in several colors: bright yellow, green, orange, white and black, but the earset 3i is only available in aluminum with black and white. It comes with a carrying pouch which fits it perfectly. It has 3 control buttons, the up volume, the down volume and control. It was designed by Anders Hermansen. You can use this earphone or earset for sports, commuting, traveling and simply to have hands off phone conversations. The earphone has a suggested retail price of $165 and the earset 3i $199 and in my opinion worth every penny.
