B&O Play by Bang & Olufsen has a new entry-level model in its expanding line of premium Bluetooth wireless headphones. At $300 (£249, $AU 399), I wouldn’t call the Beoplay H4 a bargain, but it did surprise me with how good it sounded. I think it matches up well with the competition at this price — both in terms of design and performance.
This is an over-ear headphone that has a clean look, a sturdy metal headband (it’s covered in cloth on one side and leather on the other), and soft, plush ear pads. For a full-size model, it’s fairly light, weighing 8.32 ounces or 236 grams, and is quite comfortable to wear.
The ear cups swivel and fold flat, so the headphone sits comfortably around your neck when you’re not wearing it on your ears. However, the headphone doesn’t fold up or come with any sort of carrying case, which is a bit disappointing considering the $300 price tag.
