Leather meets noise cancelling with Bang & Olufsen’s new $800 headphones

Danish luxury brand Bang & Olufsen turns 95 years old this year and it had come up with a new pair of wireless headphones with noise-cancellation to celebrate this occasion. Called the Beoplay H95, the over-the-ear headset is priced at $800 and is presented as a special edition offering limited to just 95 sets worldwide. Described as the “ultimate luxury travel headphones,” the headset is not equipped with the best hardware offered by B&O but also top-shelf materials. The oval-shaped ear cushions are wrapped in lambskin to make them comfortable or long-term wear, while the headband is made of memory foam and covered with ‘custom-knitted textile’ and cowhide leather. The ear-cushions are magnetically attached to the body, which should make it very to swap out.

The frame of the Beoplay H95 is in brushed aluminum and the headset has a foldable design. In terms of hardware, the H95 gets 40mm titanium drivers and Bang & Olufsen’s proprietary digital signal processing engine. The company also claims that the new special edition headset gets the “most advanced Active Noise Cancellation” of any Bang & Olufsen headphones ever made. There are four built-in microphones for unmatched quality for voice calls and the unit offers 38 hours of playtime with ANC turned on. The Beoplay H95 headphones will be available in two finishes, black or grey mist, and each of 95 examples will arrive in an individually numbered aluminum box. In case you’re interested, it will officially go on sale on September 10.
