For hybrid professionals, the Beocom Portal is a fantastic work accessory

October 16, 2022

Bang & Olufsen has ramped up its enterprise efforts with a dedicated headset proposition for the growing number of hybrid workers with the launch of Beocom Portal. The headset combines Bang & Olufsen’s signature sound with business capabilities and functionality.

“The Beocom Portal headset is made specifically to cater to the needs of professionals who want high-quality audio and design as well as features and technology suited for work. The launch of Beocom Portal marks the next big step in our efforts to grow our business-to-business portfolio which is an important strategic focus area for Bang & Olufsen,” says John Howard, Head of Enterprise at Bang & Olufsen.

The Beocom name builds on Bang & Olufsen’s legacy. The name was first introduced 40 years ago in 1982 when the company decided to go into the telephone business with stationary phones. Bang & Olufsen’s fixed phones went out of production in 1998 but now the name is reintroduced to bring a new product line to life.

Beocom Portal comes with Zoom certification

Bang & Olufsen has continually expanded into the enterprise market with strategic partnerships and by collaborating with industry-leading partners. The Beocom Portal has been certified by Zoom Video Communications, Inc., which will improve the product experience by enabling clear and seamless audio.

“In this new era of hybrid working, we are seeing an increasing awareness around design and sound among our customers, especially the younger audience. They use Zoom on different devices in all kinds of everyday situations and they expect the devices to be high-quality and functional, and look great whether they are doing sport, travelling, relaxing, or working at home or from the office,” says Jeff Fox.

Key features for the Beocom Portal include:

Enhanced capabilities for business: Beocom Portal is certified for Zoom and compatible with the most popular communication platforms. Thanks to the dongle included with the headset, a pre-paired wireless experience with improved connectivity and quality are provided with easy access and no interruptions or lost connections.

Bang & Olufsen signature sound: The speakers are perfected with Band & Olufsen’s best-in-class acoustic engineers, providing the uncompromised Bang Olufsen signature sound.

Crystal clear conversations: An array of beamforming microphones isolate and amplify the voice of the user while cancelling out background noise. Intuitive touch controls provide quick access to essential voice features such as mute and ANC/own voice adjustment.

Comfort and design fit for all-day use: The headset is designed to provide comfort and to add Scandinavian design values to the world of business. Designed for extended wear, Beocom Portal has a lightweight design with memory foam ear cushions. Its built-in jaw support improves acoustic performance as well as comfort. The inner headband is made from a high-quality boo textile, chosen for its durability and breathability, and is crafted with a unique offset padding to relieve pressure and avoid extended wearing fatigue.
