Looks real cool and comfortable.

A hefty price though.

It seem to be some sort of control of volume (perhaps) by turning the wheel on the earcups.

They look really cool and comfortable. If they sound as great as they look, they will be very tempting, especially if the build quality is on point.

Thanks. I was waiting for this. FAQ is already online: https://bang-olufsen.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/sections/360010059272-Beoplay-H95

They do support multipoint. Unfortunately nothing about the possibility of changing the battery, which would be a nogo for me.

Your dealer can change the battery for you though. They got tired of people doing it wrong and getting loads of rma’s and all that. So bring it to you dealer and they’ll change it for you if needed.

Interesting & sad to hear. How could one do this wrong? I think it was a quite clever mechanism and a unique selling point for the whole range. Not a very sustainable decision bringing out a brand new 800,- EUR headphone today with a dealer servicable battery only. That´s a con to me.

Which high end brand does let you change the batteries yourself? The amount of people that even still manage to mess up usb ports(pre type c) is insane as people tend to go “it’s not going in so i must push harder”. Besides why do you care so much about a battery if it’s dealer servicable?! It’ll still work passively and they last for 5+ years. Swapping the battery isn’t some huge cost.

Agreed. Can’t see how it could even be possible to do it wrong. I’ve had H, H9i, H9 and many other devices with batteries such as drones, cameras etc. it’s simple.

Building it into it is stupid and should barely be legal today considering our throw away world. Stupid design. Won’t buy. Otherwise I like them.

This is much better than what a few of us here saw when the website was leaked a few weeks ago along with the Halo. Pricing then was $1000 or $1250, I can’t recall which. It looks like they reconsidered that and priced it at $800.

Currently: BeoLab 17, BeoLab 18, BeoSound Core, Beosound Level, Beosound A1 2nd Gen, BeoPlay S8 Connection Hub, Essence Remote

Previously: BeoSound 1 non-GVA

Haven’t seen much problems with USB-C and I work at a 10k employee company. I change batteries in my B&O headphones, as in my Fujifilm X-T3 camera and many other devices. Right to repair is a big thing coming on the US side and here too. It’s not rocket science and it’s great to be able to extend a long trip with several batteries if necessary.

It's not about other brands, it's about B&O. Former models were self-servicable, this new one is not. To me this is a change for the worse. And it's not about cost. It's about a dramatically shrinking dealer network and the -sorry- rather sad prospects for the whole brand. If investing this amount of cash into a headphone I want it to last longer than the end of the warranty. Besides the ecological aspect. Regarding passive function the FAQ may say it's not possible:

https://bang-olufsen.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360048050832-What-do-I-do-when-the-Beoplay-H95-battery-has-no-power-

But I'm not shure, if it's meant for ANC only. Time will tell.

The leaked we dev site had them at 800 GBP, and now the official price is 700 GBP.

So some but not a huge change.

And it was a dev site, so who knows how old that pricing information was?!

Mikipidia:
Your dealer...

Seriously, we need to be careful in 2020 saying this so casually. Most people here don't have 'a dealer' anymore. Even in the UK now it's hard to find a local B&O dealer and in the US it's almost embarrassing.
