High-quality wireless headphones connect easily, allow your music or podcasts to come through crystal clear while blocking out ambient noise, and they have a long battery life.
I like the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i Headphones because the active noise cancelling helps me focus wherever I am, the padding around the ears remains comfortable for hours on end, and the battery lasts for 18 hours.
Though they are expensive (currently starting at $327 on Amazon), the headphones come with a 24-month limited warranty, are packed full of high-end features, and have a durable construction that survived my household, where headphones tend not to last long.
Ambulance sirens are designed to take your attention away from what you are doing so that you get out of their way. Living a block away from a major hospital means there is a constant stream of ambulances whizzing by my home office. Add in the daily deliveries that are part of a product reviewer’s life and my preschooler’s difficulties with noise modulation, and it’s easy to lose my focus while trying to do thought-heavy work. This is where headphones with good active noise cancelling (ANC) come in handy.
One of the top makers of ANC headphones is Bang & Olufsen. Based in Denmark and founded in 1925, B&O specializes in high-end consumer electronics. You can find B&O speakers in HP computers and premium vehicles, such as some Audi, BMW, and Mercedes models.
When it comes to headphones, the Beoplay H9i is B&O’s top-of-the-line option.
Below are my experiences with it.
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i Headphones feature ear cushions made of memory foam and covered with lambskin. They are designed to go over the entire ear of the listener. My giant ears didn’t fit entirely, but the cushioning did an excellent job of ensuring I never felt discomfort. This coupled with the light weight (10.5 ounces) makes it easy to wear the headphones for several hours at a time.
The headband is made of leather, and the headphones are offered in two colors: natural and black. I received the natural style to test. The headphones and all of their accouterments fit nicely in the light gray drawstring storage bag that comes with the H9i.
