Engaging, spacious presentation, impressive noise-cancelling

from Stuff

At £450, the B&O H9i are an investment that many budgets will find it hard to stretch to, but they do work really hard to prove they’re worth it. They beat the Bose QC35II and Sony WH-1000XM3 for out-and-out sound quality, and take on the B&W PX blow for blow at their best, coming clos...More

At £450, the B&O H9i are an investment that many budgets will find it hard to stretch to, but they do work really hard to prove they’re worth it. They beat the Bose QC35II and Sony WH-1000XM3 for out-and-out sound quality, and take on the B&W PX blow for blow at their best, coming close in performance but topping their noise-cancelling abilities. All that and they look gorgeous too.

RTINGS

Decent noise cancelling over-ear headphones

from RTINGS

They have an exciting V-shaped sound profile, which will be better suited for bass-heavy genres. They are quite similar to the B&O PLAY H9, with better wireless range and about twice the battery life, which is very convenient. However, their ANC is slightly better than the previous model but...More

They have an exciting V-shaped sound profile, which will be better suited for bass-heavy genres. They are quite similar to the B&O PLAY H9, with better wireless range and about twice the battery life, which is very convenient. However, their ANC is slightly better than the previous model but not as good as comparable headsets. On the upside, the H9i kept the same high-end design as the H9 and feel like premium headphones.

Great active noise cancellation, impressive sound quality

The Beoplay H9i is the best pair of headphones I've ever used. The long battery life ensured I was never left without power for my tunes. The ANC helped block out attention thieves.

The Beoplay H9i is the best pair of headphones I've ever used. The long battery life ensured I was never left without power for my tunes. The ANC helped block out attention thieves. And, the sound quality is extraordinary. This is a big-ticket item, but if you have the budget and are looking for exceptional ANC wireless headphones, I strongly recommend picking these up.

Gorgeous headphones with great active noise cancellation

from TechHive

B&O’s Beoplay H9i headphones hit a high note, with superb sound, premium build quality, and excellent ANC performance that falls just short of the reigning champs from Sony and Bose.

If you’re looking for a premium audiophile sound, without the extreme audiophile prices, the H9is are a great place to start, especially if you’re planning on taking any flights. If you add in phenomenal sound and call quality, stunning build quality, elegant design, insane comfort, the interplay between noise cancellation and transparency mode, its phenomenal Bluetooth range and its replaceable battery, you’ve got one of the best premium headphones on the market.

Pricey but near perfect over-ear headphones

from Pocket-lint

Whether listening at home, on the go, when travelling, or wherever you happen to be, the B&O Play H9i represents the best in Bluetooth over-ear headphones. If you can accept paying so much for that pleasure.

The H8i, the H9i sounds crystal clear, high resolution and offers high fidelity with offering not necessarily a bright audio signature, but surely enough in the forefront to make them stand out and for you to hear all the details.  You can distinctly hear audio on the sides, in the forefront, behind you… you can perceive different height in your audio on quality audio files.  For on-ears, they’re still one of the best for ANC headphones while still giving clear and accurate audio from my experience.

The most gorgeous wireless headphones you can buy

from TrustedReviews

There’s a real pleasure in handling and using these headphones that you just don’t get with the others. They also sound terrific, they cancel noise well, and the proximity feature is a neat touch. The more I play with them, the more I feel they justify that price tag.

Crisp and clear audio, premium materials

from Engadget

The H9i is a well-rounded and feature-packed set of headphones, but there are too many compelling alternatives that are much cheaper.

Premium design, excellent audio performance

from PhoneArena

Just crazy expensive, to the point that it's limiting its reach to the masses. And to tell you the truth, there are several headphones in that category that offer nearly the same set of features as this. Like we said earlier, if you're all about establishing your status, the Beoplay H9i will undeniably ensure that.
