Production: 1985 - 09/1998
Form 1 was one of three types of headphones produced by Bang & Olufsen over the years. Others included Headphones U70 and Headphone Form 2.
Engineers’ design remit was to create lightweight stereo headphones which fitted any head, regardless of size, shape and profile. The headphones were also designed so that it was the top of the head and not the ears which carried their weight.
Form 1 therefore represented lightness and ease of use and were designed not to lead to user fatigue which is often the case with other manufacturers’ headphones.
Weighing just 150g and finished in black and aluminium, their power handling was 0,1 W RMS.
