The BeoPlay H7 is a less expensive, over-ear model of the on-ear H8 cans we noticed in January, the most important distinction between the 2 being the lack of lively noise cancellation. Dropping that function signifies that the battery, rated for 14 hours on the H8, is promised to final 20 hours on its smaller sibling.
In any other case, the unit is fairly just like its massive brother, with the identical aluminum contact panel and reminiscence foam ear cup. One other similarity is that the H7 will “age with magnificence,” because the pure supplies utilized in its development will scuff — superbly — in the event you deal with ‘em tough.
