The Bang & Olufsen brand is synonymous with class, luxury, upscale styling and impeccable craftsmanship. Beoplay H9 is the flagship over-ear wireless headphone of its B&O PLAY collection, offering nothing less than what you would expect from the company.
When you first pick up Beoplay H9, you would immediately understand the reasons behind the $499 price tag. It is made from lavish materials including authentic soft lambskin, cowhide leather and polished aluminium. It is the Mercedez Benz of headphones. Since natural leather patinates over time, Beoplay H9 should ages beautifully giving you years of enjoyment. Beoplay H9 is one of the most comfortable headphones we have ever experienced.
Connectivity can be done via Bluetooth or the included cord. It is certainly not the best choice for bass heads. However, if clear, detailed and easy listening sound is what you are looking for, then you would appreciate the sound of Beoplay H9.
Beoplay H9 is controlled via the intuitive touch interface on the beautifully polished anodized aluminum back plate of the ear cups. It gives you full control over your music and calls with simple gestures, even if you’re wearing gloves. A quick swipe turns ambient noise down and lets you focus on your favorite music tracks. Its hybrid noise cancellation technology uses two microphones to accurately capture and measure ambient noise and effectively cancel it out with the opposite signal.
If you opt for a slightly more portable headphone, then take a look at its cousin, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H8, which is quite similar in most aspects, except for the on-ear form factor.
