  • Super good sound out of the B&O units (UPDATED 21 APRIL 2018)
I compared these headphones to Bose Quietcomfort 35 ii and Bowers&Wilkins PX over five days of use. I plan to keep the B&Os and have since returned the Bose and B&W. I may change the rating to five stars, once the factory resolves a minor issue. B&O H9i wins on several fronts, but the B&W PX are a very-very close second. Super good sound out of the B&W units. The B&O H9i definitely have better comfort for extended wearing. The B&O can accept audio input via bluetooth, a USB-C cable from a computer, or a 3.5mm Stereo Jack. This is a must for me since I use a host of audio inputs from various sources. The B&O phone app allows modification of the sound of the headphones via a very basic EQ. Its a basic app, but as a very tech savvy mechanical engineer, sound geek, drummer, and mixer operator in a large church, I would like to see such an app for a high end set of headphones have more capability. I really wish companies would make an app that allows a fully parametric EQ interface, similar to an App called EQu (by elephantcandy) for the IPhone. The right earphone allows the user to interface with the phone when listening to music. You can stop, skip, backup songs, turn on and off noise cancellation, and turn on off a “talk through” feature that allows outside sounds to come through so you don’t have to take the headphones off to listen to your environment. Follow the manufacturer's directions carefully, it takes just a little bit of care getting used to but it works fine. The noise cancellation is excellent. I have used the headphones around the house, while on airplanes, driving, and a work in an office. Very solid noise cancellation. I typically listen to acid jazz, contemporary jazz, modern jazz/rock music at lower volumes. When I take the headphones off I am amazed at how loud everything is and how well the noise cancellation works. It totally eliminates the noise of riding in a car or an airplane. The sound of music with noise cancellation and without noise cancellation is noticeably different. More midrange tones are present without noise cancellation, although careful tweaking of the B&O interface app can accommodate this. The app allows you to save presets so that you can set the phone EQ to account for when noise cancellation is on or off. Only negative (temporarily I am told) is that when using only a 3.5mm stereo input connection to the headphones, the sound quality is terrible compared to using bluetooth or USB-C connections. This is the case with or without the power switch turned on, and with or without the noise cancellation turned on. I knew this could not be correct and there was nothing in the instructions or website that identified this. I corresponded with the factory a few times by phone and email regarding the poor sound quality on only the 3.5mm stereo cable connections. As of 6 April the factory reps (Nancy and Ivan) indicated that my issue with the sound quality change when using only a 3.5mm connection is not an isolated incident. The factory rep Ivan told me the factory is planning to issue a firmware update to try to resolve the problem. I asked if the problem is not resolved via firmware I wanted to return the headphones and get a replacement pair that do not suffer from this problem. Ivan said that would not be a problem since I have established a case # via email. UPDATED 21 APRIL 2018: The latest update of the app for the smart phone changed the sound of the headphones when using ONLY the 3.5mm cable. Seems as though the fix is in and the headphones sound as good. ... show more

  • Buggy firmware
Very good audio quality coming from iphone 7 plus via bluetooth, I love B&O products. This h9i I gave 3 stars because at the beginning all sensors proximity works 99%, but then I got the latest firmware upgrade to this 5.0.4 if I'm not wrong, suddenly the right earcup only respond to play/pause. All other gestures such as from bottom to up (transparency mode), from up to bottom (NC on/off), left to right, right to left (next/previous) not working at all! (I tried to reset the headphone to its factory mode already) And the worst is the B&O support said that I got defect product. How could it be it is defect if at the start it's working, but when it's firmware's upgraded become lagged. Please give us additional firmware upgrade B&O (if you read this). ... show more

  • Stunning. Immersive. Comfortable. Gorgeous. Must-Own.
Having owned these headphones for a few weeks, all I can say about them is, WOW. As an owner of Bowers & Wilkins H7's (and loving them with truly mad love) for the past several years and a pair of Beoplay H6's, I feel like I'm in a good position to give an opinion about the transition from more traditional wired cans into the H9i's. First, let's start with construction, materials and design. In this realm, Bang & Olufsen has created a masterpiece. My Bowers & Wilkins H7's are also magnificently constructed, so if you know this model, I can vouch for them being as meticulously beautiful and robust as the B&W's. I fully expect these headphones to last for years. Comfort is fantastic. The ear pads are incredibly plush and ridiculously comfortable. Opening the box and literally smelling leather like a fine pair of shoes was an indication of the fact that these are ultra-premium headphones. Contrast that with the faux leather of, say, Bose. I've owned a pair in the past and I can assure you that the plastic and faux leather will not wear well. In this regard, the H9i is well worth the additional money. Sonically, the H9i is wonderfully neutral. The ability to tailor the sonic signature via the app is fantastic. Not only can you choose the right mix of warm/relaxed/excited/bright, but by pinching the "dot" in the app, you can also adjust separation to give the sound the kind of air and space you'd like. Brilliantly executed. The touch controls on the earpiece are fantastic. Don't let peoples' comments about them being fussy deter you. Once you've had them for 48 hours you'll be able to do whatever you want pretty much flawlessly. Noise cancellation is solid and achieved with minimal air pressure sensation. The transparency mode makes the H9i ideal for use in an office environment. I think I've freaked people out by swiping up and having a normal conversation without taking off my headphones. ;) Overall, I literally couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. Once again, Bang & Olufsen has done an amazing job. This is my fourth Beoplay purchase. Based on the H9i's, it certainly won't be my last. ... show more
