Beyond features, it’s probably safe to expect better-than-average build quality from the Beoplay HX. The ear pads have lambskin over the memory foam inside. And the headband uses cow hide instead. Which, if genuine, sounds so much better than all the faux leather in the market currently. The rest of the headphones use aluminium, with a bit of recycled plastic here and there.
Naturally, something from the Danish brand wouldn’t come cheap. The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay HX is priced at US$499 (~RM2069). Right now, it remains to be seen if these headphones will be making their way to our shores.
