If you prioritize wireless convenience and active noise cancelling for commutes or flights, the Bang and Olufsen Beoplay H95 are suitable, offering better portability and battery life. However, if your focus is on top-notch audio quality and a wide soundstage, ideal for critical listening in quiet environments, the HifiMan Arya Stealth might be a better fit, though they lack a built-in microphone and wireless functionality. Comfort is exceptional for both models, but the H95’s closed-back design offers more isolation, making it versatile for varied environments, whereas the Arya’s open-back design will leak sound and let ambient noise in, which is less ideal for noisy settings.

Headphonesty

Eric D Hieger | October 2022
"The Arya can easily be end-game headphones for 99% of consumers, satisfying most audio desires. Priced well above USD$1000, the Arya are obviously and gloriously not for the mass market consumer; they are designed and built by enthusiasts for enthusiasts – especially those who view their expenses on this level of gear as investments."
