  • Re: BeoPlay H9 3rd Gen

    [quote user="garethr"] I don't have so much of an issue with the naming convention - although the H9i was clearly a misstep. It seems they're now more closely following the Apple model here where typically (mostly Mac) product revisions retain the same core product name, but have the version or year appended. That said it is pretty confusing when they're still continuing to market the H9i special editions - the real mistake though was probably even bothering with those special

    [quote user="Rob - Danish AV"] These product launches are all over the place A9 third Gen was only out a couple months then 4th Gen releasrd E8, E8 2.0 & now E8 Motion Beosound 1 and 2 both had upgrades with the same name its going to be hard work for dealers who need to move all their old stock(that’s not even old) [/quote] I was thinking that earlier. Why are these the H9 (3rd gen) (same as H6 (2nd gen)), but the H9i were called the H9i, and the new E8 aren't E8 (2nd gen

    Just sent this to my dealer: Based on about half an hour with them so far: Sound is much better, feels more balanced ANC is more effective, but now turning it on/off doesn't have such a big impact on sound Assistant button seems useful, pressed it and it read out a notification I received which was cool Kinda miss the removable battery, got a spare that I have no use for now 😂 They're a bit more comfortable, the ear holes are bigger Little things: the textured power button is useful for

    [quote user="garethr"] Mine arrived today. Not had long to try them yet, but compared to my H9i there is a clear improvement in the sound and the ANC. With the H9i the sound with ANC active was very nasal and sibilant. Not so with the new H9. In fact I’d go as far as saying the change in audio signature between ANC off and on is pretty negligible now. Equally the default signature feels ever so slightly more balanced - so the midrange dropout feels less compared to the H9i. Comfort

    [quote user="mbee"] [quote user="Jon"] I would be very surprised if sound and ANC haven't been improved. Have ordered a pair so will see. [/quote] As it’s B&O that doesn’t mention any difference concerning audio quality or ANC, you can be sure that they didn’t touch anything. By the way, having a H9i myself, I wonder what can be improved regarding AQ... at this price, it’s still one of the best sounding BT headphones around! [/quote] We'll have

    [quote user="mbee"] As already said, the new features list at the start of the topic is the feature set of the H9i I when it was released. The new features of the 3rd gen H9 is only voice assistant button and cosmetics... so to answer your question : the new features are clearly not worth 200€... 40€ maybe, but not so sure! [/quote] I would be very surprised if sound and ANC haven't been improved. Have ordered a pair so will see.

    I wonder when the new H9s will be released, someone sent me a link to this Taiwanese regulatory approval cert a couple of days ago but not seen any mention of them on Beoworld 🤔 Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9 3rd Gen NCC CCAF19LP051AT0 https://fccid.io/NCC/CCAF19LP051AT0

  • Re: Beoplay h8i connectivity issues

    Hi! I don't have the H8i but it might be worth trying keeping your phone on a different side of your body (I had the E8 and they dropped out less if I had my phone in my right pocket), but you should probably just send them off for repair. They'll probably just send you a brand new pair and there's a chance they might work - I can't imagine every single pair is like this 🙂

    [quote user="Duels"] Clearly the seasonal colours aren’t for you Puncher, but I do believe they can have a significant impact on sales by fostering additional interest every six months. Presumably B&O see sales spike when they release new colours otherwise they would stop doing it. I don’t think it should be a case of spending the money on other things. Surely money should be spent on all the areas you mention at an appropriate level in addition to the colour team, not instead of. If
