B&O PLAY by Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H2 On-Ear Headphones – Carbon : Superb pair of headphones from B&O.

Sounds is absolutely excellent. The fit was a bit tight the first hour or so, but more comfortable now after some use. However, i knocked 1 star off the review as they are a bit uncomfortable for extended use.

Headphones themselves are so comfortable and lightweight. The earpieces turn so that they lay flat which is great for transporting them. The sound quality is brilliant, these are the best headphones i have owned.

Surprised with the sound quality compared to more highly priced headphones on the market. Ear-pads fit is quite tight but they seem to loosen up a little bit after using it. Noise isolation – whilst passive – is quite effective. Not sure about durability, they seem quite a sturdy, nicely designed and overall very well made product – will update this after some time on whether they’re actually durable or not.

  • Great sound quality for the price with a nice isolation from the ear-pads.
  • Wonderful sound small and light perfect for travel
  • Fantastic deep tight bass however the clamping effect is so

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Honest and passionate sound experience with your portable device
  • Design that follows the latest trends in fashion and clothing
  • Incredibly lightweight headphone with genuine lambskin on the cushions
  • Detachable and interchangeable cable
  • Inline remote and microphone

Comfortable to wear, sound awesome. The bass is really pleasant and music just sounds superb on it.

Fantastic deep tight bass however the clamping effect is so tight i felt like my ears were being pushed inside my head.

Fantastic presentmy husband loves them and the quality x.

A great set of headphones these have an excellent sound quality and really bring your music to life. My only criticism would be is that they a little on the tight side straight out the box but after a while this does wear off. I own a set of audio technica m50x and i thought they sounded amazing these are every bit as good for such a small headphone. If you love your music as i do i would definitely recommend these.

Good sound ,love it, really good use if every day.

I have just purchased the beoplay h2 my old and much more expensive bose nc headphones having died. This was after doing a lot of online research. The improvement in sound quality, richness and depth is amazing. I was slightly concerned about the lack of nc capability but the fit is so good that this is not an issue and the benefit of lightness more than makes up for it. To be fair, the fit does take a little getting used to since they seem tight but once on they are very comfortable. They don’t fold up for compactness when travelling – i cannot wear in-ear headphones – but this is a very minor niggle and they do not come with a case or bag. I have always considered b&o to place function secondary to expensive form and to be wary of the brand but these prove me wrong. I am no audiophile but i would challenge anyone to find a better headphone available for such a price.

I can’t believe that more expensive headphones can be better than this.

Light, comfortable, easy to adjust with fantastic sound. One small complaint is that the lead seems small and flimsy and probably wouldn’t be difficult to break.

This is the first on ear headphone i’ve bought all the others being over ear. I wanted small light headphones for travel and these are perfect very comfortable just give them a few minutes to blend into the shape of your head. The sound is wonderful with plenty of volume if needed in noisy aircraft. If you want to protect your fold flat headphones may i suggest you look at the accessory house dn 1 pro case sold on amazon its a perfect case.

These are great headphones, very good sound quality and stylish. Though due to their fixed and non-adjustable frame wearing glasses with them is a bit more difficult, but still okay. I’d perhaps suggest others to glasses users which are adjustable – but i still think they are great.

The headphones are beautiful, fantastic sound quality, and arrived promptly. Five stars, but only because five is the limit.

Seller – item arrived quickly, no problems at all. Item – all around great headphones. Great sound for base and high notes. Mutes environmental sounds well. One of the nicest looking headphones around. Soft and comfy ear pads, however they do sit on your head very tightly which can make them uncomfortable over long periods of time (although this helps mute environmental sounds). Overall i would definitely recommend.

Wanted decent headphones for good hi fidelity use. These seem wonderful on rock and classical songs.

Great high quality headphones despite the fact that some may possibly say they are a comfortable in shape they are not uncomfortable. The audio high-quality is really fantastic for use in quieter places as they are not sound cancelling. Loud without getting distorted and deep bass without having being muddy or booming.

Superior earphones but no instructions,perhaps i am an fool but to get stereo on them you have to preserve finger on management,somewhat foolish.

I wear these each day for operate. I’ve had other manufacturers that have unsuccessful, frayed, irritated, fizzed and at last been canned. These aren’t the showiest, or most distinguished of makes – and not the lowest priced, but i eventually took the plunge when it was on give on amazon prime working day. I has since bought two a lot more for my parents who stay in a flat and were not ready to pay attention to something appropriately without disturbing neighbours. Wish i’d absent around to these sooner as the excellent of sound is crisp, total and undistorted. I guess it matches my style improved that the some others i have experienced.

Great high quality for the income.

Exceptionally fantastic good quality headphones for the price. Incredibly warm abundant audio but with clarity. Best for travel and out of doors use owing to heat audio, ease and comfort and isolates most exterior sound. four stars simply because let down a bit by defective volume handle lead (one channel cuts out) but no major deal to me for the reason that direct detaches so i replaced it wit a nicer a single. Equipped lead intended for apple gadgets but volume change performs ok but no up coming/ past track on android gadgets.

    Sound is very subjective but to my ears these have an excellent detailed and involving sound. I could listen to them for ages, except that i can’t because even though i would say i have an average sized head they clamp it like a vice. I have gone as far as to leave them on a ball larger than my head for a good while but to no avail, they just spring back. For that reason i can’t see them getting more comfortable with use.

    1. Absolutely delightful headphones,really comfortable on the head and ears also looks amazing. For a normal person the volume is loud but i prefer loud . So i purchased a portable headphone amplifier to use with my ipod and now it’s perfect. If you need new headphones i urge you to buy these.

    1. I bought these to replace a pair of apple/beats ep headphones. Sound quality: absolutely superb. Sound ok with my iphone and great with my macbook pro. With an headphone amp they sound even better. Sound isolation: open ears to isolate quite well, ok for commuting without cranking the volume to much. Build: really well made and removable cable. Mic is really good and clicks well. Packaging: b+o, so packaging is well thought out.

  4. I got these in a prime day price, so they were really good value and the speaker quality is excellent. Once again with b&o they look fantastic also, but they let me down on comfort. I can’t use them for more than half an hour without hurting my ears, a real shame – just not cushioned enough.

    1. Good sound, comfortable on ears for prolonged listening, but volume needs to be turned up higher than other headphones (when i listen to my ipod).

    Taking these out the packaging, the quality of these is immediately obvious. Thought they’re plastic, they still feel relatively sturdy and the fabric across the sides and band gives a pleasant rough texture. The ear cups are soft and mean that wearing these for an hour or longer never feels uncomfortable. I picked up the ‘feldspar green’ version of these and they’re a seriously beautiful piece of kit. In terms of sound quality, i’m not audiophile, but i think they sound great for day-to-day listening. They’re nicely balanced – the bass is present but not overpowering and the mids and highs don’t get drowned out at higher volumes. I’ve tried plenty of over-ear headphones in the £200+ range and while these can’t match the most expensive sennheisers or grados, these still sound great and look even better. While they’re not noise-cancelling, they also block out a surprising amount of external sound for on-ear headphones. I picked these up for £100 on an amazon lightning deal which was phenomenal value – they’re easily worth that or a bit more.

    I did a lot of research before purchasing these headphones, i had a rough price in mind (around £150) and through reading many reviews and actually trying these on in store i can honestly say i have never had a more comfortable or capable pair of headphones, i use an ak jr to play cd quality or higher and these headphones nail everything perfectly. From the smiths, to muse, to chet baker i am very satisfied with my purchase. These are very well made, the headband is perfectly sprung so the leather cups fit on the ear but you don’t feel like you are wearing a head brace and the cups themselves are incredibly comfortable, even after hours, they also block out enough external noise without needing to crank it up too high and let enough sound in so you don’t not hear the ambulance. Don’t hesitate, you will be happy i am sure.

    Fantastic headphones from b&o. They feel lovely and sound absolutely superb. Had to send mine back purely because i decided i need wireless more than wired. I wish i could have kept these as well though.

    1. These sound great but i could barely put them on my head, they are so small. I went for the bose qc25 instead, but the p5 or p7 are better, they sound amazing but twice the price.

    I bought this on an amazon lightening deal and they are absolutely excellent. We have had them a few months and they’re still working very well. They cancel out any background noise and are without question the best headphones i’ve ever owned. They look very expensive and have been dropped a few times but are still working perfectly. I use them daily when i go jogging, can’t recommend them highly enough.

    There is a little switch in the wire which broke after a few uses, rather disappointing for such apparently quality headphones.

    Elegant and beautiful sound quality. They’re not noise cancelling but simply by being on-ear they do a nice job of reducing outside noise anyway.

      1. I wear these every day for work. I’ve had other brands that have failed, frayed, irritated, fizzed and finally been canned. These aren’t the showiest, or most prominent of brands – and not the cheapest, but i finally took the plunge when it was on offer on amazon prime day. I has since bought two more for my parents who live in a flat and weren’t able to listen to anything properly without disturbing neighbours. Wish i’d gone over to these sooner as the quality of sound is crisp, full and undistorted. I guess it matches my taste better that the others i’ve had.
