These days with the rise of digital assistants, it seems that headphone makers are starting to throw more support behind them. For example, a couple of years ago, Bose launched a new pair of headphones that came with support for Google Assistant. If Google Assistant is your preferred assistant of choice, then you might want to check out B&O’s latest offering.
The company has recently updated its H9 wireless headphones where the new model will come with support for Google Assistant. This comes in the form of a dedicated button that users can press to activate the digital assistant. However, this won’t be just an upgrade with Google Assistant as the company has also introduced a larger battery to the headphones.
Previously, the company’s H9i headphones offered around 18 hours of use before needing a charge, but the updated H9 headphones will now sport a battery that will add an extra 7 hours, bringing it to a total of 25 hours on a single charge. This makes it an ideal pair of headphones to bring with you during your travels.
Unfortunately, B&O’s headphones have never been priced cheaply and the new H9s are no exception. If you’re interested in getting your hands on the new H9 headphones, be prepared to pay $500 for them.
