Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal two-minute review 

The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal is a luxury product aimed at those who want a headset that can basically do it all. It can connect to your Xbox console directly or to your smartphone via Bluetooth, and it can also connect to devices using a 3.5mm headphone jack (though the headset needs to be turned on). A second version released in early 2022 opened the headset up to PS5 and PS4 consoles too thanks to USB-C and USB-A dongles, and also allowed for dual simultaneous-audio support with a mobile connection over Bluetooth. Unfortunately, we never found the Xbox Beoplay Portal edition held a completely rock-solid connection when connecting to an Xbox console, with intermitted issues often cropping up during our play sessions.

Unlike the majority of gaming headsets, the Beoplay Portal is built using high-end materials, like super soft lambskin on the earcups and a knitted bamboo fiber textile on the headband. Weighing in at just 282 grams, the Beoplay Portal is also incredibly light, which means the headset can be worn comfortably for hours on end. These premium materials warrant a premium price point, however. At $499 / £449 (about AU$690), the Beoplay Portal is an extremely expensive pair of headphones.
