Description

A smaller headphone aimed partly at the portable market, the Form 2 was the lightest of the B&O range, being under half the weight of the Form 1. Despite this, it was nothing like as comfortable to wear, having a hard plastic band which pressed into the top of the head. Although it had the usual B&O cues of aluminium and black, in truth it was little different from many other cheap headphones on the market. As an entry level product though it excelled and maybe this accounts for its long, admittedly largely unheralded, stay in the B&O range. Text copyright © Beocentral.
