The Beoplay H9 are decent mixed-usage headphones with a great premium design and a comfortable over-ear fit. They look and feel very durable, and they're relatively lightweight for an over-ear headset. They also sound decent and pack a lot of bass but...

Great design and build quality ; Comfortable fit

Mediocre-at-best noise isolation ; Leaky at higher volumes

B&O BeoPlay H9 review: Audio prestige doesn’t come cheap, but it's well worth it


So if you're feeling particularly loaded and are looking for long-lasting, comfortable-to-wear and good-looking over-ear headphones then few can reach

Very comfortable to wear for long periods ; Great sound that’s rich across all frequencies ; Wide soundstage due to large earcups ; Subtle noise-cancellation is great

Battery doesn’t last for an age ; Bluetooth doesn’t disengage when idle ; Expensive ; Bluetooth too quiet from smartphones (an EU regulation limit) ; Wind tear is an issue

It would be too easy to criticise the B&O BeoPlay H9 for the high price and the noise-cancellation being too subtle for some. But that would be shortsighted: because the H9 is a killer over-ear headphone.

B&O Beoplay H9 review


Better than Beats ... but not by much

Stellar battery life ; Luxurious materials ; Effective noise cancellation

Overpowering bass ; No multipoint pairing ; Poor value

The B&O Beoplay H9 are luxury headphones that miss some key marks. Materials, battery life and active noise cancellation are great, but their overwhelming bass, lack of features and high price make them hard to recommend.

Beoplay H9 wireless over-ear headphones with ANC


For any audiophile looking for a pair of good quality headphones, one with active noise cancelling is a must. Luckily, Beoplay's H9 over-ear offering has this, plus looks great too.

Great battery life in ANC-mode; Good sound quality; Feature rich device

Very pricey

Apart from the drops of condensation that formed from time to time, there is little fault to find with the Beoplay H9's. If you're in the market for a good quality pair of headphones that will see you through a few years, the H9's hit the mark. Add to...

Great sounding cans


Bought this to replace Parrot Zik 3 headphones as I wanted better sound quality, & these certainly delivered. They are night & day in comparison with the difference in sound quality, much better, although the bass can be a little overblown at times....
