B&O PLAY have launched Beoplay H9- a wireless, over-ear headphone that designed for comfort and with flagship noise cancelling performance (ANC).
First up, the headband- built up around a solid yet lightweight aluminium frame covered with stitched cowhide leather, and underneath- a soft lambskin coated ear cushion with adaptive memory foam.
The ear cushions in addition to providing comfort also act as an isolating element for high frequency sounds. This combined with the ANC delivers superb detail in noisy environments without compromising the sound.
On the side of the right ear cup is a touch interface in anodised aluminium where you can activate the noise cancelling function, change songs, answer calls and control the volume, even with gloves on.
Beoplay H9 provides up to 14 hours of performance with just a three-hour charge, but fear not- if you run out of charge you can swap the battery or 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, which gives you a variety of options for personalising the tonality of your listening experience: Commute, Clear, Workout and Podcast.
