The Beoplay HX over-ear headphones are premium headphones that compete with heavyweights such as AirPods Max and Sony WH-1000XM4.
To stand out from the crowd, manufacturers can choose to invest in good battery life, something that Apple, for example, has not done with AirPods Max.
Bang & Olufsen, on the other hand, has made sure that you can use Beoplay HX for a really long time – a full 35 hours on a charge with active noise reduction running, which is enough for several days in a row for many.
In addition, Beoplay HX has been designed to be comfortable enough to be used all day without feeling heavy on the head.
Beoplay HX has 75% longer battery life than AirPods Max
And 35 hours is better than many other headphones on the market today. AirPods Max only lasts up to 20 hours while Sony WH-1000XM4 lasts 30 hours.
This is where Bang & Olufsen stands out with their new Beoplay HX. As much as 75 percent better battery life than Apple’s tricks, but only 17 percent better than Sony’s.
Without noise reduction, the time increases further – to a full 40 hours. Which can be said to be really good in class.
One reason the battery life is so long is thanks to Bluetooth 5.1. It is the latest standard for Bluetooth with long range and high energy efficiency compared to previous versions.
