What we love about the B&O H9i

  • We’ll come onto the sound in a moment but just take a second to pause your new favourite podcast and gaze adoringly at the beauty of the new H9i wireless premium headphones From Bang & Olufsen’s B&O Play division. Slim, perfectly proportioned, and ergonomically excellent.
  • The Active Noise Cancellation is frighteningly good. Put these puppies on and the outside world vanishes as you enter a haven of sound so private and secluded it should have a red velvet rope and a large bouncer dressed in a black suit standing guard. The Transparency Mode feature means a quick tap stops your music and allows you to hear exterior noise again.
  • Designers at Bang & Olufsen have eradicated an age-old frustration of headphone wearers everywhere. No longer will you have to search for the stupidly tiny ‘L’ or ‘R’ on each cup to see which way round you should wear them. Instead, the H9i have a two-inch high ‘L’ and ‘R’ in bright white displayed on the interior of each cup. So simple, so easy.

  • If you can bear to take these sophisticated headphones off (we would advise against it) your podcast or song will automatically pause thanks to the smart proximity sensor. Slip them on again and your sound kicks back into life.
  • Changing tracks, adjusting volume or accepting calls is a pleasure as your fingers glide over the anodised aluminium ear cups. However, the sensitivity of the discs is heightened to such a degree that it does take a bit of practice to hone your stroking and execute the correct command.
  • For AED 2,199 the expectation of top notch sound is a given, but for that price high-grade materials are also vital. The H9i has a lightweight aluminium headband wrapped in leather, while the slim ear cups are made from memory foam that are snuggled in soft and supple lambskin.
