Overview

Our take on the B&O PLAY Beoplay H9i by Bang & Olufsen

I use the word “luxury” to describe the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i headphones, in part because they sport the company's signature stylish looks. But there's also real substance here. These wireless noise-cancelers are made from premium parts that give them a first-class feel. And B&O loaded them up with modern features to make on-the-go listening a real treat.  

Beoplay H9i headphones

The Beoplay H9i headphones offer convenient touch controls for music, calls, and noise cancellation.

Attractive headphones that add steak to the sizzle

I use the word “luxury” to describe the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i headphones, in part because they sport the company's signature stylish looks. But there's also real substance here. These wireless noise-cancelers are made from premium parts that give them a first-class feel. And B&O loaded them up with modern features to make on-the-go listening a real treat.  

Music plays wirelessly from your phone via Bluetooth, and B&O's active noise cancellation helps knock out external noise. The company recently tweaked their noise-canceling technology so that it better blocks the sound of human voices. A rechargeable battery provides up to 18 hours of wireless listening with noise cancellation.

A sturdy, elegant design

I haven't tried these headphones yet, but I did test out their predecessor, and they had a really impressive, lightweight build. This new version sports the same sturdy aluminum frame and plush leather earpads. But they've streamlined and softened those earpads just a bit, so that they more closely match the fit of the Beoplay H4s — perhaps the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn.

Smooth, detailed sound

Of course you can only enjoy headphones if they sound good, too. B&O has fine-tuned their sound profile for the Beoplay H9i. You don't get the extreme, "boomy" bass you might expect from some modern headphones. Instead, you get a smooth, midrange-focused sound profile with detailed highs. The bass can get deep, but it sounds more punchy than bloated.

Intuitive touch controls and Transparency Mode to keep you aware

A lot of us use noise-canceling headphones while traveling, so B&O threw in some neat features to make listening more convenient. The right ear cup has a touch panel built right in. You move your finger across the ear cup to control music and phone calls.

Someone trying to grab your attention? Tap the right ear cup to activate Transparency mode — you'll instantly hear what that person is saying.
