Product Overview

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay HX are premium over-ear headphones with an elegant design, long battery life, and strong driver-microphone setup. They can be considered the sister model of the Beoplay Portal unveiled at the same time, trading the latter's gaming features for a longer battery life and better integration with voice assistance.
Like the Portal, the Beoplay HX use Bluetooth 5.1 as the main connection option, though they can also be driven passively via 3.5mm headphone jack. A standout feature is the long, 35-hour battery life with ANC on (40 hours with AND off), which is one of the best in the industry today.
As is usually the case with B&O's products, the Beoplay HX use premium materials: The headband and earcups are crafted out of aluminum and wrapped in leather. The 40mm dynamic drivers with neodymium magnets are aided with 8 microphones, six of which work in the ANC system.
For those who want only the best, Bang & Olufsen did not forget to release a even more exclusive model, the Beoplay H95, at the same time.
