Bang & Olufsen B&O PLAY by Beoplay H2 On-Ear Headphones – Carbon : Fantastic deep tight bass however the clamping effect is so

Fantastic presentmy husband loves them and the quality x.

Good earphones but no instructions,maybe i’m an idiot but to get stereo on them you have to keep finger on control,rather silly.

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.

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.

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.

B&O PLAY by Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H2 On-Ear Headphones – Carbon Blue : Extremely good quality headphones for the price. Very warm rich sound but with clarity. Ideal for travel and outdoor use due to warm sound, comfort and isolates most outside sound. 4 stars because let down a bit by faulty volume control lead (1 channel cuts out) but no big deal to me because lead detaches so i replaced it wit a nicer one. Supplied lead designed for apple devices but volume adjust works ok but no next/ previous track on android devices.

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.

For the money, these are simply excellent. I have far more expensive cans than these that do not sound as good.

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.

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

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.

I know hear sounds i’ve not heard in a song before. I got them when they were reduced as well so double pleased.

Fantastic quality headphones although some may say they are a snug fit they are not uncomfortable. The audio quality is truly outstanding for use in quieter locations as they are not noise cancelling. Loud without being distorted and deep bass without being muddy or booming.

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.

Good headphones at just over £100 on amazon deals. Great saving on shop price of £170.

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

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.

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.

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

Very good but unfortunately i preferred the comfort of my previous bose around ear headphones.

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.


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.

Buildfirst pair’s headband cracked after almost a year. The replacement pair’s headband began warping after 6 months. I take great care with all my tech hardware. Oh, and my head’s an average size. B&o’s usual ‘pleasing’ tone – good clarity and stronger than average bass. Whether you listen to classical or dubstep, you’ll rarely be disappointed. (i’ve owned sure, sennheiser, klipsch, and rha.

Sound only comes out of one side unless i hold the volume tab on the auxiliary cable. Utterly pathetic and i find it astounding these sets typically retail well over £100. Not only did i receive a permanent mono sound but it was so uncomfortable, a tiny loop of a connection oand ver your head connecting to the two ear muffs, and they crush either side of your head inward – headaches were guarenteed after 15 mins or so, and at the very least you’ll feel discomfort without relief. All in all, avoid completely.

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.

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.

Seller was brilliant but product directly from manufacturer was aweful.

Don’t even bother buying these, the headband snapped after 6 months as i was putting them on my head. B&o wouldnt repair them and neither would the third party seller. And despite the fact i had insurance amazon were tied in what they could actually do. Absolutely disgusting service received from everyone apart from amazon who were the most helpful. I am now in the process of getting a chargeback issued from my credit card company.

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.

Wanted decent headphones for proper hi fidelity use. These sound great on rock and classical music.

It hurts your ears from the pressure after a couple of hours of continuous wearing.

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.

Great sound quality, comfy and noise cancelling. Although a lot of noise escapes from these to the outside world.

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.
