B&O Beoplay H8i and H9i headphones review: Diminishing returns


While the B&O Play H8i on-ear headphones sound good and have impressive battery life, they could be even better with a few more notches of volume.

Premium materials ; Touch controls ; Lightweight and decently comfortable ; Crisp and clear audio ; USB-C charging

Expensive compared to the competition ; Touch controls present a learning curve ; Companion app offers minimal audio controls

B&O continues its run of well-designed headphones with the H8i and H9i, and for the most part, the audio is up to par. The volume issue with the H8i is a big sticking point for me, especially when you consider how steep the investment is there. The H9i...

B&O Play Beoplay H9i


The handsome B&O Play Beoplay H9i headphones offer excellent audio quality in a luxurious design, but you can get better noise cancellation for less.

Rich bass depth matched with detailed highs. Adjustable EQ in app. Luxurious materials and lovely design. Can be used in passive, wired mode.

Expensive. Noise cancellation affects audio playback and adds hiss.

From an audio standpoint, the Beoplay H9i headphones are terrific, if a bit pricey. From a noise cancellation standpoint, they're not up to par with Bose, which sells the Bose QuietComfort 35 II for $150 less. So if you're looking for the best active...

Goondu review: B&O Play Beoplay H9i sounds refined, has excellent noise cancellation February 8th, 2018 | by Alfred Siew Audio-visual 6


The Beoplay H9i pleasantly surprises with a neutral, transparent sound that handles a wide variety of material extremely well.

High-End-Kopfhörer mit ANC-Sahnehäubchen


Verarbeitung, Klang, Funktionen: Der B&O Beoplay H9i erfüllt den Anspruch an einen hochwertigen Kopfhörer voll und ganz. Als Sahnehäubchen setzt er eines der derzeit effektivsten ANC obendrauf. Empfehlung.

Klang; effektives ANC; Verarbeitung; Tragekomfort; Akku wechselbar

keine AptX-Unterstützung; Klangabfall bei aktivem ANC

[test] Beoplay H9i : B&O place la barre encore plus haut 1 commentaire


Utilisateur quotidien du Beoplay H8, j'ai suivi avec beaucoup d'intérêt le lancement des H8i et H9i, les deux derniers casques de B&O Play. Sur le papier le H8i remplace le H8 ( testé et approuvé ici ) et le H9i remplace le H9. Mais ça, c'est sur le...

+ Qualité de fabrication ; + Qualité acoustique ; + Annulation de bruit digne des références (Bose…) ; + Autonomie très correcte ; + Matériaux luxueux ; + Il reste une prise Jack (et un câble fourni) pour écouter en filaire ou batterie vide ; +...

– Assez encombrant sur la tête et dans un sac ; – Housse de transport indigne d’un casque à 500€ ; – Seulement 2 couleurs pour le moment (mais on peut être sûr que d’autres viendront très vite)

Coup de foudre. Le H9 dépasse tout ce que j’ai eu l’occasion d’essayer comme casque avec ou sans fil dans un budget inférieur (de peu) à 500€. Que ce soit en confort, en qualité audio ou en qualité d’annulation de bruit, ce casque fait tout mieux, ou...

Tight och klart ljud från B&O Play


Bättre design, ljud och brusreducering, hävdar B&O. Men är verkligen H9i bättre än sin föregångare?

Best Bluetooth headphones


The Beoplay are the best for sound quality and build quality, the H9i really stand out with the quality materials used on them. Sound is out of this world and you can tweak it to your own preferences with the Beoplay app. Great touch sensors on right...

Fabulous headphones, but not perfection


I really like the features these headphones have, the touch controls are very handy but they're not perfect, even after the latest firmware update that was installed straight out of the box. Sound from H9i is crisp and bright, sometimes too bright, but...
