Bang & Olufsen has unveiled its new voice-assisted H9 headphones. The new headphones’ technology is paired with Google Assistant, allowing wearers to find out about news, manage their day and enjoy multimedia without glancing at their phone.

The voice assistance is accessed via a dedicated button which is also compatible with Apple‘s Siri function, as well as other mobile voice assistants available on alternative handsets. The new Beoplay H9 also features a larger battery, meaning you get 25 hours of playtime with Bluetooth and ANC turned on — seven hours more than its predecessor.

Usability has been improved as well thanks to more comfortable ear cushions and a redesigned touch interface on the right earcup. Staying true to Bang & Olufsen’s minimalist Danish design approach, the H9 has been crafted from light-weight materials such as aluminum, which has been wrapped in a layer of stitched cowhide leather. The earcups have been given memory foam inners and are finished in soft lambskin leather.

Bang & Olufsen has released the H9 in two colorways, “Matte Black” and “Argilla Bright,” with both being priced at $500 USD. Pick up your pair from Bang & Olufsen boutiques and online.
