Beoplay is done, everything is just B&O now. They did that about a year ago. My gen 2 h4’s had no beoplay markings on them nor did the new a1 or last h9i even iirc.

Somebody should let their web & marketing teams know that.

B&O product history since 1991: Ridiculously long to list in a signature.

Maybe BeoPlay name is just a product range name as opposed to a separate brand?

Before it was pitched as a sub brand in its’ own right.

So now it’s even more confusing Bang & Olufsen BeoPlayH95

Just get rid of BeoPlay already if you decided to.

I promptly ordered a limited edition H95 set on 8/27 via an email link and was pleasantly surprised when my H95s were delivered within 24 hours on 8/28. I don't believe the limited edition adds anything more than a small engraved number on the case [and the headset] (46/95 in my case), so I wouldn't be too disappointed if one did not get that version.  I think the benefit of limited aspect of it is more or less in getting it on 8/28 instead of 9/10.

All that said, the H95 is utterly fantastic and I'm supremely happy with it.  I'll leave the sound quality impressions for others to make (I suspect they will mirror my own impressions and be rather positive), but I wanted to point out two things about the H95 that others may overlook in their comments. To give my background, I have a pair of H6 (which broke after a long life) and H9i.  The H6 is my gold standard in headphone comfort, and as much as I loved the ANC and wireless aspect of the H9i, they are not as comfortable on my head as the H6.  The H9i feels heavier and bulkier than the H6.  The H95 however, is notably more comfortable on my head than the H9i and approaches the comfort of the H6.  Frankly, I'm not sure how this is the case. Perhaps the H95 is lighter than the H9i (I did not check) or more balanced, but ultimately I do not know.  Then again, the how my not matter because the end result is an extremely comfortable pair of headphones.  Also, I wanted to comment on the compact size of the H95.  I've often found the H9i to be rather sizable when stowing for travel.  In contrast, the H95 is much more compact when folded, which makes it a fantastic travel companion (especially with the stunning performance of its ANC).

So do I have any gripes? None so far; I'm extremely pleased with the H95!

The end of waiting. My order was delivered.

I have the number 14/95 and the big difference to the normal black and grey version is that the speakercover and the screws behind the earcups are in rosegold. That looks very very nice to my other limited Edition H6 from 5 years ago. Geeked

Yes, my H95 does have the number on the arm as you pointed out. I overlooked that in my previous post.

I completely agree with your assessment of the sound and feel. Though I should add that I did hold both the H95 and H9i's in each hand, and the H95 is heavier. It just works so great on the head that the slight added weight isn't an issue, and maybe less noticed.

Part of the reason I think that the sound compares similar to the H6 has to do with the way B&O angled the drivers of the headphones. I've owned H6's, H7's, H9i's and now H95. H6 & H95 are the only ones that have these angled drivers, and I feel that helps a lot in imaging.

I am upset that B&O didn't send me the engraved set, even though like you it's what I ordered. I'm also very surprised by how quickly they came. So if you want to exchange your numbered set for my un numbered one ;)

I am trying to work with B&O to get a properly numbered set. Their email support has been very difficult this time. I end up getting a new person every time, and I've been walked around in circles over and over regarding my order. It's honestly quite frustrating. I was told that there are still 6 engraved versions still floating around their distribution centers. I keep asking that I can set up an exchange, but they keep asking me to go for a refund. I keep telling them that I want what I paid for.

H95 looks smart.

Is that a Beocenter and Beogram in the background? They look stunning.

I believe they are using Beoplay as naming convention rather than a sub-brand I suppose. For instance the A9 is still called Beoplay A9.

Anyway, I just got myself on the notification list for the H95. If it's as good as it's made out to be, it'll be a bargain at $800. I prefer headphones now for serious music listening and these will  (hopefully)replace my Focal Stellia AND H9 3rd gen - The Stellia sound great but I prefer wireless now and the H95 seem like a nice upgrade over the H9s 🙂

B&O in my life 😊: 

 

  • Beolab 8002 + Beolab 2 + Beosound Core with Essence Remote (Office)
  • Beolab 6000 + Beolab 11 + Beosound Core with Essence Remote (Bedroom)
  • Beoplay A9 Mk2 (Living Room)
  • Beosound 1 with wireless dock (Portable)
  • Beosound Balance (Dining)
  • Beoplay H95 (Focused listening, travel)
  • Beoplay H9 (3rd gen) (retired)
  • Beoplay P6 (Portable)
  • Beotime wall clock (hallway entrance)
  • BMW X5 50i with B&O Audio Package (Commute/drive)

Beocenter 9000, Beogram 9000, and Beolab Penta Mk I :)

I sent my H95's back on Friday, I'm looking forward to getting the engraved set like I paid for. Though it may take some time for that to happen, so I'm using my H9i for now.

Personally I really liked the H95 sound. I found that some people who replied to my video did not like the sound, and felt it had too much bass and not enough clarity on the high end. I agree that the bass is strong with this one, but I found a lot of clarity with the high end.

I received my replacement engraved H95 headphones today!

 

It's very cool to see the golden accents of the engraved version. I'm very glad that this got worked out. Though I do have to say that I wished B&O's email support would assign one person to a case. I dealt with at least 11 different people on the support team, and many times it felt like I was walking in circles. So it feels really good to have this taken care of.

Nice touch, wish I’d got one. But they were already sold out.
