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.

Great design and build quality.;Comfortable fit.;Good battery life.

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i review: Gorgeous headphones with great active noise cancellation


B&O's H9i headphones hit a high note with excellent active noise cancellation, premium build quality, and superb sound.

Beautiful design and premium build quality ; Excellent active noise cancellation and outstanding transparency mode performance ; High-end audio performance

Gesture pad can be finicky on rare occasions ; Can become uncomfortable after long listening sessions ; No support for aptX, aptX HD, or LDAC

B&O’s Beoplay H9i headphones hit a high note, with superb sound, premium build quality, and excellent ANC performance that falls just short of the reigning champs from Sony and Bose.
