The well-known guitar amplifier manufacturer announces the new Orange Crest Edition MK2 wireless headphones. This update offers improved connectivity with Bluetooth 5.0 and longer battery life (up to 40hrs playback).


Introduced back in 2020, the original Crest Edition headphones received great reviews. Everyone loved the sound, comfort, and most of all, the touchpad interface on the right ear cup.

Let’s take a look at the newly updated Crest Edition MK2 and see what notable improvements we should be excited about.

Besides the power efficiency, which now offers up to 90 minutes of playback from just ten minutes of USB-C charging, the simple lightweight design remains the same. The goal it seems is to provide users with a truer, more neutral listening experience.


So instead of the hyped sound of headphones of this type with juiced-up low end, you get more of a nuanced “studio feel” which many users clearly preferred about the original model.

The control panel now has a Voice Assistant button, giving you quick access to Siri or Google Assistant so you can navigate and cue up media without lifting a finger. Moreover, the built-in mic has been upgraded too, offering more clarity over calls.

The Crest Edition headphones also include a travel case for easy storage and a minijack aux cable for wired listening. Besides the sound, comfort, and great isolation the best feature by far is the easy-to-use touch control panel.

Swipe horizontally to cycle your playlist or vertically for volume controls, it’s that simple. You can also now listen to two A2DP devices wirelessly via multipoint Bluetooth, so you can stay aware of your mobile apps and when you’re on your laptop and vice versa.

Pricing and availability:

The Crest Edition MK2 headphones are now available for order directly from the Orange online store for £99.
