Bang & Olufsen announce Beoplay H95 – $800 ANC headphones
B&O just dropped one of the most expensive set of wireless headphones we’ve ever seen, but how do they compare with popular sets around half the price?
Celebrating 95 years of innovation at Bang & Olufsen, the new Beoplay H95 are B&O’s luxury flagship wireless headphones.
B&O certainly haven’t skimped on materials. These headphones are high quality from top to bottom, with a combination of anodized aluminium, soft leather, detachable lambskin ear cushions, aluminium dials, 40mm titanium drivers, as well as a foldable design to fit in the aluminium hardcase.
The headphones support active noise cancellation, that can be adjusted using the large dial surrounding the cup. Wirelessly connect to devices via Bluetooth 5.1, with support for SBC, AAC and aptX Adaptive codecs. The headphones are good for 38 hours of playback with ANC on and 50 with it off. Four microphones are good for clear calls. Siri is compatible today, with Alexa, Google Assistant and Xiaowei coming fall/winter 2021. Google Fast Pair and Microsoft Swift Pair are available out of the box.
They come in Black & Grey Mist. A wovan fabric USB-C and audio cable, plus flight adapter are included in the box.
These are the most expensive wireless headphones I’ve seen that aren’t specifically designed for audiophiles HiFi setups. No one outside of B&O have gotten their hands on these yet, so we’ll have to reserve full judgement until then.
If you’ve got a spare $800 laying around, you can reserve a pair today, with shipping starting on September 10th.
