Bang & Olufsen have used their 95 years of innovation in sound, design and craftsmanship to create a contender for the very best headphones in the market today.

At FACT we understand how time-consuming searching for the right product can be, especially when there are hundreds of options to select from. When it comes to headphones however, there are only a few manufacturers that offer a truly premium standard. Designing and producing exceptional electronic equipment since 1925, Bang & Olufsen are amongst these outstanding brands. This Danish high-end consumer company has recently released their new flagship headphones in the form of the Beoplay H95 and we were fortunate enough to experience everything they have to offer.

First, the highlights. We found the superior signature sound delivered by the set of customised titanium drivers with neodymium magnets to be crisp and clear. This combined with the advanced digital Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) ensured we were completely immersed in the experience from the moment the headphones were slipped on. Despite the sophisticated nature of this product, it boasts a highly innovative touch user interface that allowed us to quickly develop a full understanding of all operations. Importantly, we found the four-voice microphone ensured great call clarity each and every time.

Available in five different colour schemes and sporting a brushed aluminium framework with highly detailed finishes, we think these Bang & Olufsen H95 headphones are a beauty to behold. The outer headband has been covered in high-quality leather and the inner with soft fabric. This and the magnetically detachable lamb skin cushions, ensure maximum comfort. Aluminium has been selected for the housing, sliders, mono arms, volume wheel and the transparency wheel, all of which look and feel first-class. The right wheel controls the volume whilst the left controls the adaptive noise cancelling. In truth, there are too many great elements and features of the design to mention in this article.

The headphones fold flat and inwards to a very small size, fitting neatly into a compact aluminium-shelled carrying case featuring a built-in magnetic closing mechanism. The interior houses a spring-loaded hinge, a fabric covered lid and a textile covered headphone cradle and cable compartment. Connector wise, the H95 set comes complete with 1.2-metre USB-C and USB-A cables constructed with aluminium housing and fabric cords. A flight adapter and a 3.5 Jack are also included in the package. All-in-all we found the case to have been neatly put together in a visually pleasing and practical manner.

Other notable features include a battery with 1.100 mAH allowing for up to 50 hours of music listening or around 38 hours with the noise cancellation engaged; the best battery performance of any Bluetooth headphones out there. This battery takes around two hours to fully recharge. Bang & Olufsen have also created an app for administrative tasks and settings that we found easy to navigate. The app offers support contact, FAQs, general user help as well as a sound matrix with no less than seven storable pre-sets. Bang and Olufsen have achieved excellence with this latest offering and we can only recommend you take the time to experience them for yourselves. ✤
