B&O PLAY Beoplay EarSet 3i by Bang & Olufsen
In-ear headphones with in-line remote and microphone (Black)
Our take on the B&O PLAY Beoplay EarSet 3i by Bang & Olufsen by Crutchfield's David Brown
The Beoplay Earset 3i headphones (shown in White) feature adjustable rubber ear hooks that wrap around your ears for a secure, comfortable fit.
An innovative design for a near-custom fit
If you know Bang & Olufsen, you know their audio products are as artful looking as they are great sounding. That's certainly the case with their Beoplay EarSet 3i headphones. We've never seen headphones quite like these, with their unique rubber ear hooks and telescopic earpiece arms. The hooks move up and down and side to side, so they can comfortably wrap around your ears, while the telescopic arms can be adjusted to nestle the earpieces properly in your ears. The result is a secure, comfortable, and practically custom fit. That makes the EarSet 3i great for everyday mobile use, as well as excellent workout headphones for the gym, the track, or the treadmill.
Smooth, spacious sound
The EarSet 3i headphones offer rich sound that's smooth and well balanced. Bass response is tight without being overpowering, while warm midrange presence helps vocals stand out. The high frequencies are detailed but never bright, for a sound that's listenable for hours at a time. These headphones also produce a spacious soundstage thanks to the semi-open earpiece design.
Calls and control with your iPhone®
Keep control of your iPhone, iPod®, or iPad® while you listen with the Beoplay EarSet 3i's built-in remote. It includes volume and track control, so you can skip songs, play and pause the music, and kick the volume up a notch with the press of a button. There's also a tiny built-in microphone for taking calls while your iPhone remains in your pocket or bag.

Was looking for a in-ear head set that would stay in your ears, pain-free. These work perfectly. What I like the most is, that still allows to hear noises around you so, as I run/bike outside, I still am aware of what is happening close by.

Overview: The Bang & Olufsen (B&O Play) EarSet 3i is a high-quality intra-concha earphone with high-performance sound. The EarSet 3i is not inserted in the ear canal like traditional in-ear headphones. Instead, the 5/8" diameter electro-dynamic speaker rests inside the concha (the outer ear) and fits the contours and curves of the ear. The speaker element is mounted on a telescopic bar that can be raised or lowered, and rotated for a comfortable fit. The integrated hinged ear hook bracket can also be adjusted against the back of your ear to keep the EarSet in place. The EarSet 3i comes with an in-line remote and microphone that is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod. When not in use, the EarSet 3is can be stored in the leather pouch with a hook-and-loop fastener.
Design: The B&O Play EarSet 3i weighs only about 3/4 of an ounce, and is comfortable to wear for hours. The dynamic full-range speaker element is constructed according to open loudspeaker principle, allowing in some environmental sounds. This allows you to run, walk, or bike safely without being total cut off from the outside world.
Ear Pads/Clothing Clip: The headphones come with four pairs of foam ear pads that fit over the speaker element for a more comfortable fit. In addition, a clothing clip is included to help you manage the cable as you move about.
Cable: The EarSet 3i features a 48" cord that terminates into an aluminum-tube 3.5mm plug. It has an in-line 3-button remote and microphone that is compatible with Apple iPhone (3GS and later), iPad, iPod (touch 2nd gen and later, classic 120GB/160GB), and nano 4th gen and later). The outer buttons control Volume Up and Volume Down. The center button controls various music playback and phone call commands.
