Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9 3rd Generation (Matte Black)


What's in the box

  • 1.2 m audio cable with 3.5 mm mini-jack
  • 1.25 m USB-A to USB-C cable for Charging


As we said of the previous two iterations of the H9 before, it's all too easy to criticise these over-ears for their high price tag. But that would be to ignore the epic sound quality, supreme comfort, lovely build quality, and the notable battery improvement. All said, though, there are better options out there.

The B&O Beoplay H9 3rd Gen are enjoyable headphones – but they simply aren’t good enough to justify the cost. Find them on sale, or at significantly under the RRP, though, and you won't go too far wrong
