In the year of its 95th birthday, the Danish company Bang & Olufsen celebrated the date in the best way. It launched the Beoplay H95 headphones, which emphasize the excellence of sound quality and the refinement of design that the almost century-old company has already accustomed us to.
From the moment we opened the box for these active noise-canceling headphones for the first time, it is clear that the experience is top notch. premium that we had already tested. The model provided by the brand was the gold version, but there are also black and silver versions.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H95 first impressions
In addition to the headphones, which are very functional, and fold for easy storage, we find other accessories in the box. We have a 3.5mm cable, a USB-C cable for charging and an adapter if you are on an airplane.
An immediately noticeable detail in these luxurious headphones is the ease with which your cushions can be removed. These are magnetically coupled, and can be easily exchanged if damaged.
One of the things I really liked about these headphones is the combination of buttons and gestures. Like other products in the market, such as Surface Headphones, they use wheels on each side for different controls.
On the left side you can control the noise cancellation level, and vary between this and the transparency mode with the “wheel” present in the earcup. On that same side, there is a button that allows you to call the virtual assistant of your choice.
On the right side, you have a wheel that allows you to do the volume controls in a very simple way. Using touches on the outside, you can even pause or restart the music with a touch. With side gestures, you can switch between your tracks. Also on the right side is the on / off button, the USB-C port and the 3.5mm input.
Multipoint headphone connection allows simple passage between two devices
The Beoplay H95 can be used using the cable, or via Bluetooth 5.1, as I used throughout the test. It is important to note that they have a multipoint connection, which means that you can easily use them between your computer and your smartphone without any problems.
While listening to music on my MacBook, it was with great ease that I was able to answer calls using the headphones on the iPhone. And connecting them to any Android or iOS device is a pretty quick process.
It is important to mention the existence of an app for iPhone and Android. Here you can adapt the various controls, and even switch between listening modes such as “Clear”, “Workout” or “Podcast”. The noise cancellation level can also see its intensity being changed through the app.
Beoplay H95 autonomy is simply phenomenal
An unbeatable detail compared to any other headphones I’ve tested, is the battery of these Beoplay H95. The brand claims that these offer 50 hours of continuous listening or 38 hours with active noise cancellation. This means that, at an average of 8 hours a day, you can spend an entire week without charging your earphones. For someone like me who appreciates this convenience, this was a big plus.
Crystal clear sound quality is the great weapon of these headphones
The biggest design, and undeniable, is the sound quality of these headphones. If you’re a fan of electronic music, these are a real treat. I use as an example the track below: “Sereia Remix” by “Rita Vian e Branko”, where we can see the portentous bass and treble that are offered to us, and a good distinction of the voices.
The distinction of instruments is made quite clearly in these Beoplay H95. And this is evident in bands where the confusion is most evident. As is the case of “Bosses Hang Pt. I” by “Godspeed You! Black Emperor”. We have several stringed instruments in a track that ends up gaining dimension with the sound quality of this product. In “Bosses Hang Pt. III”, the musical chaos is even greater, but these have not wavered. The tracks were heard through Spotify and via Bluetooth.
Noise cancellation is not surprising
With regard to noise cancellation, I can tell you that I was not surprised. They are aware (or perhaps below) of my Sony WH-1000XM3 or Sony WH-1000XM4 that I also tested. This means that, in practice, in very noisy environments you will always hear “those voices”. And for this price, maybe you would ask for a little more.
An important detail in any headphones is comfort. And the truth is that what we feel here is a real satisfaction, from headphones that you will have no problems using for several hours.
Conclusion: excellence comes at a price
Noise canceling or transparency mode does not justify the price range of these headsets. What sets them apart is the luxurious and cared-for construction, the super-battery that can reach 50 hours, and the crystal clear and full-bodied sound. If you want to take full advantage of the excellence of their sound quality, these will be a product that (like me), you will certainly appreciate.
