There’s a real pleasure in handling and using these headphones that you just don’t get with the others. They also sound terrific, they cancel noise well, and the proximity feature is a neat touch. The more I play with them, the more I feel they justify that price tag.

The handsome B&O Play Beoplay H9i headphones offer excellent audio quality in a luxurious design, but you can get better noise cancellation for less.
