Explore the Sound, Feel the Silence: Introducing B&O’s H9 Headphones

By Paul Joseph

Wireless headphones have been on the market for many years now, but few are as beautifully designed as those rolled out by Danish high end audio experts Bang & Olufsen.

Now the band has taken their creativity to a new level with the launch of Beoplay H9, a wireless, over-ear headphone billed as combining craftsmanship and supreme comfort with flagship noise cancelling performance.

Said to immerse users in the music experience, the H9 headphones’ over-ear wearing style provides a more expressive look, and is crafted in luxurious, lightweight and true materials.

The headband is built up around a solid and lightweight aluminium frame covered with stitched cowhide leather, and underneath the soft lambskin coated ear cushion is innovative memory foam that adapts  to the shape and curve of the ear for supreme comfort and breathability.

Other than making the headphones comfortable for hours on end, the ear cushions also act as an isolating element, which eliminate most high frequency sounds, allowing you to hear every detail in noisy environments without compromising the listening experience.

Furthermore, on the side of the right ear cup is an intuitive touch interface in anodized aluminium that captures the latest acoustic innovations from the renowned B&O PLAY music system. With this interface, you can – with just a single touch or swipe – activate the noise cancelling function, change songs, answer calls and control the volume.

Beoplay H9 comes with up to 14 hours of noise cancelling music performance with just a three-hour charge. You can swap the battery in an instant, and if you run out on it just attach an audio cord to keep listening to your music. If you forgot to turn your headphones off the intelligent battery-saving function will automatically kick in.

Beoplay H9 is compatible with Beoplay App for Android, iPhone and Apple Watch. The headphones are available in two colours, Black and Argilla Grey, and are priced at €499 (£499).
