jakob wagner (1963) is one of scandinavia’s foremost designers known for his characteristic landscape of form driven by a quest to strike the right balance between opposing elements such as masculine / feminine, static / dynamic or symmetrical / asymmetrical. his simple yet sophisticated design captures the essence of a product in a minimalist, poetic and playful solution. his design approach is characterized by a keen focus on details, a high degree of curiosity and a strong grasp of user experiences in a balanced design expression. human ears are very complex and diverse, so beoplay H5 have been meticulously tested and improved to get the perfect fit, said the designer.

‘when designing earphones to be worn in the inner ear for many hours, comfort is the most important factor. the human ear is a delicate and fascinating part of the body, and I wanted to honor that and take care for it to make beoplay H5 sit beautifully in the outer ear and blend in naturally. soft and yet precise.’

the cable connecting the two earpieces is encased in braided textile, which makes it comfortable against the skin, and is molded directly inside the rubber to prevent dirt and sweat from interfering with the delicate electronics. the housing of the earphones is made of textured rubber and polymer to resist moisture, and to complement the braided textile cable a diamond cut and radially polished aluminium plate is mounted on top of each earpiece.
