Top critical review
Wanted to love these (and visually I do!), but not fit for purpose due to bluetooth

B&O know how to make beautiful products and for several decades their industrial design has been imoressive. In that sense this is a classic B&O product. But it's also classic in the sense that although the hardware is amazing, the software ruins the overall experience. I did my upfront research, made sure to enable AAC codec on my mac and upgrade to the latest firmware on the Beoplay. But sadly they keep dropping out, I struggle to connect them to my phone and usually have to go in and do it manually and/or remove and add them again. Even though I much prefer the look of these to the Airpods, I'm returning them and going for Apple's "it just works" product. Hopefully next gen will work like they're supposed to. If so I'm definitely buying a pair!
