Bang & Olufsen Beoplay HX headphones with digital ANC and up to 35 hours of play time have just been launched.


Beoplay HX has two custom designed 40mm speaker drivers with neodymium magnets and bass ports. Four dedicated microphones use advanced beamforming technology for call quality, while the battery optimization ensures up to 35 hours of play time.

Bang & Olufsen has introduced their next generation of Digital Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation technology which cancels unwanted noise without compromising on sound quality. Through Bang & Olufsen’s dedicated app, users can easily change sound profiles, ANC presets, while also accessing the most essential features directly on the headphone interface.

Comfort is essential for wearing headphones and Beoplay HX has been designed with well-being in mind. Lightweight and designed for durability, the ergonomic design ensures that the headphones can be worn all day in comfort for a broad variety of head sizes. This is due to the revamped headband which has a centre-relief zone for long-time wear.

The ear cushions are made from soft lambskin and the inner material consists of memory foam that adapts to the shape and curves of the ear for comfort. The upper headband is made from cow hide with a smooth grain, while the lower headband is covered in a knitted fabric. Beoplay HX includes a form-fitting fabric case that protects the headphone and its accessories while on the move.

The arm sliders are made of anodised, pearl blasted recycled aluminium with a light brushed detail in the upper part. The disc is crafted from aluminium with a diamond spin finish which is nestled within a polymer-painted plastic structure, creating contrast between the alternating smooth and matte sensations.


Beoplay HX has been created so that it can reach up to 35 hours of playtime with fast, strong, and stable connectivity through Bluetooth 5.1, Microsoft Swift Pair, Google Fast Pair and Made for iPhone (MFi). The product set-up process is convenient on both Android and Apple-devices.
