Ideally suited for travel, the new Beoplay H95 wireless headphones from Bang & Olufsen marry cutting-edge tech with a timeless design.
Promising the highest quality in sound, long-lasting comfort, truly effective noise cancellation, a beautiful chassis, and the most satisfying user experience, the new headphones combine the best of the worlds of audio and design.
Featuring an oval, over-ear design with soft lambskin and memory foam ear cushions that provide a luxurious and superior fit for long-term wear, and an innovative and intuitive user interface provided through a combination of touch control and mechanical dials, the new H95s boast a band in brushed aluminium accentuated by touches of cowhide leather.
The new headphones are designed around a set of customized 40mm titanium drivers with neodymium magnets mounted in ported enclosures, while the sound design is implemented using filters in a proprietary digital signal processing (DSP) engine developed by Bang & Olufsen. The headphones build on its impressive passive noise reduction with the most advanced Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) of any Bang & Olufsen headphone, which is both adjustable and adaptive. The ANC performance – the tuning and testing of which was done under real-life conditions – is entirely based on digital processing and uses both a feed-forward and feedback microphone to reduce noise as much as possible.
To further bring an unrivalled listening experience, Beoplay H95 comes with AAC and aptX Adaptive – the next generation dynamically adjustable audio codec, designed to deliver robust, low-latency, low-bitrate, high-quality wireless audio – while Bluetooth 5.1 secures optimal connectivity.
Bang & Olufsen has pioneered touch interfaces on aluminium surfaces. Today, the Danish audio company is taking this a step further by adding a precise aluminium dial to each side of Beoplay H95. Inspired by the focus rings on the lenses of high-end cameras, the dials move with precision and just the right amount of smooth resistance. Each dial has a fine, linear texture that confirms contact. It is a high-touch element that feels natural to use, and it makes sound preferences quickly accessible. The dial on the right controls volume, while the dial on the left adjusts ANC and transparency.
If you need to keep in touch with family or work colleagues, four voice microphones give superb clarity when making calls. Beoplay H95 uses beamforming and advanced noise reduction technology to capture the voice as clearly as possible, while simultaneously reducing the influence of background noise. This also includes extensive side-tone processing that gives a more natural feeling of speech. Moreover, Beoplay H95 comes with a user-adjustable transparency mode to allow the user to hear surroundings without removing the headphones.
The new headphones also come with market-leading battery time with up to 38 hours of playtime in one charge – even with ANC turned on, and fold flat into a stylish aluminium carry case.
