BKHC BK9 Headphones Review
      #47883 - 03/31/15 07:58 PM

The BKHC BK9 Headphones are designed to work with your laptops, tablets, phones and mp3 players, though it has the luxurious look, comfort and the sturdy build of much higher-end headphones. The BK9 offers a number of essential features that ensure good quality audio performance, including decent-sized drivers, ambient noise blocking, lightweight and comfortable padding. The audio quality is good for a pair of headphones in this price range, and it works for most music genres but favors music styles that need accentuated bass. For smartphone users, the BK9 comes with a call control stick with a built-in mic. The BKHC BK9 Headphones come in five colors.


The design of the BKHC BK9 Headphones has a distinctive studio style with a pronounced metal frame and defined lines and edges. The colors in the collection are solid, saturated black, brown and bright blue, orange and red. The BK9 has black ear cups and both the ear cups and the headband are heavily padded. As a result, it's comfortable to wear the headphones for long periods of time, as long as they fit you well. The metal frame is adjustable with retractable arms. Metal BKHC logo plates on each of the earphones add additional masculinity to the presentation. Despite all the metal parts, the BKHC BK9 weighs 9.2 ounces, lighter than most studio headphones.

The BKHC BK9 Headphones come with a 48" detachable audio cable and a black nylon carrying case. The cable has a call receive and music playback control stick that also has a built-in mic. The 2-ring 3.5mm audio plug doesn't fit into the headphone's audio in port smoothly. We had to try a few times to seat the plug properly to the port in order to get stereo and full audio to the headphones. The 3-ring plug that goes into your phone or laptop worked smoothly in our tests. The headphones double folds into a portable size that fits into the carry bag.

Audio Quality

The BKHC BK9 has decent-sized drivers that can bring the volume to its full potential on most phones and laptops without distortion. We tested it with the iPhone 6 models, the Galaxy S6 edge, the MacBook Air 13" and the Nexus 6, and found the drivers to be powerful enough in music playback and movie playback. The quality of the audio depends highly on the music genre. In our tests, the headphones provided powerful bass for R&B, Rap and some Rock tracks and balanced mid and low frequencies. Vocals and acoustic guitar sounded a little muddy in our tests. The BK9 doesn't have digital processes to combat ambient noise, but the tight-fit ear cups block out immediate background noise. It's not effective enough that you won't hear someone talking to you, but it's effective enough that plane engines can blend into people chattering and other noise to reduce the grading. The BK9 offers good audio quality for voice calls on both the incoming and out going ends, clear and loud.


The BKHC BK9 Headphones have a lot to offers at $69.99 list, including loud audio, balanced tuning and a strong bass. The headphones are comfortable to wear and they have a look of most expensive headphones. The BK9 is well constructed and comes in five nice colors. Sure, the audio could be clearer but for a pair of headphones that can block out a good level of ambient noise, has voice call features and a modern style, the BKHC BK9 is a good choice for travelers to play music, movies and take phone calls on the go.
