Soh was born in Kuala Lumpur. He is the son of former Malaysian badminton player Soh Goon Chup. His uncle, who is his mother's brother, Soo Beng Kiang, was also a former Malaysia badminton player and Olympian and had partnered with Cheah Soon Kit to help Malaysia win the 1992 Thomas Cup.

He began playing badminton when he was 4. He was selected to play for Kuala Lumpur when he was 7. Later he received an offer to study at Bukit Jalil Sports School when he was 13. In 2015, he partnered Ooi Zi Heng and won gold in the 2015 ASEAN School Games.

In November 2015, Soh partnered Aaron Chia but crashed out in the fourth round of the men's doubles event in the 2016 World Junior Championships. Based on their improved performance, he was drafted to the national back-up squad at the end of 2015 where he was coached by Cheah Soon Kit.

In July 2016, Soh and Ooi won the boys' doubles bronze medal at the 2016 Asian Junior Championships. They were defeated by the Chinese pair of Han Chengkai and Zhou Haodong in straight games (15–21, 17–21). Soh suffered injuries and was not able to improve his performance in the 2016 World Junior Championships. Despite that, he was still drafted into the national team after the event.

Soh played for Petaling BC at the beginning of 2017. He partnered Chen Tang Jie and reached two finals in International Challenge/Series events. In October 2017, Soh was recruited into the national team.

Before the end of the 2017 season, Soh reunited with Aaron Chia and managed to qualify for the finals of the India International Challenge.

In March 2018, the duo stormed into their second international finals in Vietnam International Challenge, but still, they failed to win their elusive first career title.
