B&O PLAY was launched in 2012, yet is firmly grounded in the 89 year history of Bang & Olufsen, as it interprets and applies the same core values to a new type of contemporary, portable product that easily integrates into daily life and delivers high-quality experiences. "As B&O PLAY attracts a design-conscious end-user who seeks best-in-class technology and intuitive operation, we feel the stylish, luxurious finish of the Hard Graft line-up mirrors our brand values and perfectly complements our headphone and earphone collection," states Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, Executive Vice President of B&O PLAY.

Since its inception in 2007, Hard Graft has been making fine leather and felt goods of the utmost quality with a great attention to detail and a sharp eye for multi-functionality and usability.  "We love to take a beautifully designed object, involve some leather and wool and turn this precious product into something more by adding extra functionality and a cheeky personality to the product that it protects," states James Teal, Founder of Hard Graft.

A PERFECT MATCH

This week the Hard Graft accessory collection will be offered to North American consumers on BeoPlay.com online shop, www.beoplay.com/hardgraft, and will feature three different carrying and storage solutions for your most treasured headphones. Offerings include the below:

  • POINT: A compact "fortune cookie" that protects your BeoPlay H3 in-ear headphones, consisting of a leather and wool pyramid that gently encases the small earphones.
  • PEAK: A playful pouch that perfectly protects your BeoPlay H6 or Form 2i headphones due to its full leather pouch with protective padding that transforms into the headphone stand.
