Bang & Olufsen has revealed its new Beoplay H95 noise-canceling earphones for the high price of $800 You can get an outstanding pair of earphones for much, much less than that, but the audio professional is hoping to leapfrog Sony, Bose, and other headphone makers in workmanship and sound quality.
With the H95 headphones, Bang & Olufsen also copied one of the best things about Microsoft’s Surface Headphones: the dial controls. You can twist the dial on the best ear cup to adjust volume and the one on the left to manage the adaptive sound cancellation. And they’re textured, so they’re easy to feel out when you’re using the headphones.
It sounds like the H95 earphones are battery champs, with a continuous runtime of up to 38 hours with ANC enabled. Bang & Olufsen says its noise cancellation is both adaptive– so it’ll respond to your environments– and adjustable if you prefer to keep it called in to whatever level you desire.
For codecs, the H95 s assistance SBC, AAC, and aptX Adaptive for low latency and enhanced audio fidelity. When not in use, the H95 s can fold down for storage in their hardshell case.
The Beoplay H95 earphones will go on sale September 10 th in black and gray; the business already sold through a restricted edition numbered run of 95 systems to celebrate its 95- year heritage. I’m looking forward to evaluating them and getting a sense for what that cost point gets you over Sony’s outstanding 1000 XM4 headphones
