All Bang & Olufsen Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2018
"wireless", they said (cheeky)
The exposed wires though ;(
After testing them I can confirm they are far better than the AKGs (AKGs seemed very dull). They still aren't as good as my wired Sennheiser HD555's but definitely next best after those. They are loud enough for me however I just feel that the instruments aren't as powerful as with the Sennheisers. All in all I'm happy with the purchase - thanks OP!
You're welcome for the deal. It's actually one of the drawbacks of bluetooth. It uses radio signals to connect so it can pick up other interference. Make sure you update to the latest firmware too!
Thanks to the OP for this great deal. Got mine as well despite eBay estimating delivery to my local Argos on Monday, they were there at 11am yesterday! Fantastic quality feel. Almost feel a bit heavy to me but not the end of the world. HOWEVER, is anybody else hearing hissing, only when using bluetooth?? Obviously much more noticeable when listening to a podcast/audiobook due to the silent parts. If I pause music/podcast the hiss continues for about 8 seconds and then stops with a little pop. Annoyingly, they are totally silent when using even a cheap aux cord with them. These are my first pair of bluetooth headphones - is this something they all do when connected/disconnected? This could be a deal breaker for me...
Received and I have to agree with previous poster: I’ve had Parrot Ziks, Bose Qc25 , Philips Fidelio and the sound on these is wonderful. It’s plenty loud for my liking, great soundstage - with full but not overblown bass with fabulous mids and highs. I listen to Tidal and on Hifi setting , it absolutely blows away the other phones I’ve tried of late. BARGAIN! Oh, the headphones are not loose and fit great...has them on all day.
Just received mine, absolutely blown away by sound quality not sure why people were saying sound was not loud in Bluetooth mode it is loud to m
One of them is forest green camo/rat ironically ;)
Max discount =£50
Balls.. missed it by 2 hours! :( wanted a soundbar
Well got myself a Frost-Free freezer, nearly £40 cheaper than I was planning on paying. Thanks OP.
alexmurphy01: Really good price, and, if you'd rather an informed opinion as I spent a lot of time testing and picking them... miles better build quality and sound than the QC35 though the ANC isn't quite as powerful (still very good). Better ANC and build than the Senns, and though its debatable, better sound than the Sony, but slightly weaker ANC. That said, they are a lot more expensive than the others, and aside from the far superior build quality vs all of them, and the sound quality vs the Bose, the rest is largely preference - I paid rrp for mine after sending my second pair of faulty Bowers&Wilkins PX and I'm very happy....*except* the touch controls are a pain. switched to B&O a few years back.Pepsi limited editions.Great sound but looking to upgrade in September.Listen to mainly Rock,Metal and Dance.Recommend any in the £3-4 hundred range?Wired not Wireless

Still expensive for what they are. For example, Senn PXC550, Bose QC35 and Sony WH1000XM2. All probably get the job done better.. for cheaper. This is the lowest price for the H9i though so, heat.
Unlike some bluetooth headphones which are connected by a cable between the earpieces, the B&O Plays aren't.
“truly wireless” as opposed to “untruly wireless” (lol) (lol) (lol) .
I'd like to hear more about why the sound quality is worth £200 than the "genuine leather charging case". My suspicion with B&O is that while its OK quality kit, the premium prices are more for the style. Which is fine if that's what you value most, of course.
I think the charger pins are on the left.. I'm sure you'll see them. Clean with contact cleaner or.surgical spirit and a q-tip.
Well it used to charge by usb c, but one day it just stopped charging, same happened to the standard one. I'll give them a clean and see what happens.
Maybe the contacts need cleaning.. there are two sets.. Also can get another one if it's faulty. If it's only connected via usb c it will not charge .. the connector on the side is for charging. For example, since I use this with other devices, I use this with my G5 by connecting it with a usb c to usb c connector. And it works great, but then it won't charge!. Which is deeply annoying. However when connected properly by sliding on the module and clicking on the battery properly, it's great, working perfect. Also if anyone hasn't used this before, it doesn't show up as a device until you connect headphones/earphones, then it wakes up. If connected to a pc, it will show as a sp-dif device.
I got one of these, the phone no longer charges with it on. It also won't charge with the standard bottom but will charge with the camera attachment. LG G5.
I use this on my windows dell XPS tablet. Sounds great when using it. Much better than the onboard sound.
Got one of these but the audio on my laptop is noticeably quieter when it's in use. Anyone else encountered this problem?
Had mine for about a year and use it often. Noticeable sound quality improvement. Recommended but I think mine was cheaper
Works with Windows too if you better audio for music.
I think thats there for portability, really if you're looking for aesthetics, you probably shouldn't be looking around this price point.
Agreed - the aesthetics ruined instantly by attaching the handle making it look like a mini esky.
It looks like a cool box
I have these ... Very good detailed sound , very studio monitor like. However if you want even the slightest bit of bass then you're out of luck, there's none here, but it's due to the flat sound if that's your thing. I prefer a slight v in my sound. So they are currently my least used earphones. This is no slight on these very very good mid range earphones, it's just that they may be flat for some of us.
How much for the other earpiece :/
With ear wax
Dodgy pair of earphones!
Thought you meant B&q.
I'm sorry about that, here it is: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sme/beoplay/Extra-20-off/so.html?_seedid=152311786395&_soffType=OrderSubTotalOffer&_soffid=5086113201&_trksid=p2047675.m2197 Fixed.
Why is this getting heat even when the link doesn't work?
B&O as in Bang & Olufsen?
link not working...
Awesome news. Glad I could help someone. Mine haven't arrived yet but hopefully I'm in the same boat as you :D
Got one today, ordered yesterday completely brand new not out of the package, it is a gift so looks good as it is sealed. Good price £107.20.
Very good price
Arrived yesterday, very nice build quality and look great. Not to bad a sound via Bluetooth (all headphones I have tried show a lack in quality via BT connection), even better when NC turned off if not needed. However, use the provided cable for wired connection and BOOM, true B&O quality reproduction. Love them and at £175 I do highly rate them with BT and NC just a bonus if ever needed. Cheers Op
Also ordered - was looking at the other colour H8 earlier that are more expensive. They also have these £20 as a refurb with 12 month guarantee.
Ordered thanks guys
I got mine a few days ago. I also found that you needed to push the connector right in to hear the stereo properly. They sound quite good, but not as good as my Sony set that coast a lot less than the BeoPlays original price. Horses for courses, I guess.
I initially thought mine was faulty.. It gives a click when you push it in so I thought it was connected properly but only one side was working. Then I pushed it in further with a bit more force and it clicks into place a second time. But... They don't sound right ... There is something really strange about the sound that I find hard to describe. Wonder could it be a phase issue or something. Might need to send mine back.
Yes exactly, the left one just has no sound. Hoping they can do me a replacement instead of a refund.
This does seems a bit potluck, is that broken as in no sound whatsoever? You'd have thought they'd test that...not what I'd call a refurb?!
Got mine today... one headphone is broken (fierce) not happy.
Great price as they are still £200 on Amazon. Still unsure as reviews are average. Heat for the price.
Not sold on IEM ANC.. I have a horrible time getting a good seal. Comply just don't work for me. I struggle to see how this would be worth it over a closed back headset.
Whoop! Whoop! Whoop!
I’ll take 8... who’s the crafty consumer now.... zoidbirg that’s who
Only Mike Tyson could afford one of these.
(shock) People still going on about plasma when there really old tech even if there very good. Tbh i would rather spend £6.2k on 65" oled, atmos avr system and 4k projector etc...
Yeah 3g data I think some still offer that. 5g might be out in two years time
I used to pay about £35 for unlimited data years ago.
The total price of the deal is £845, I then included the price after cashback etc.
chipset heating after certain period of use. I optioned for the LG G5 SE version which remains cooler than the S820 version. You can buy LG G6 from reputable Ebay seller with warranty like new for just under £300.00. Also I had LG V30 for couple of months but eventually sold it.
I have been looking at the lg g6, but still too expensive, so you rate the lg g5? What do you mean about temperature?
How the heck do they know its my birthday today?
it does work, i tried it on the £400 headphones, and the code took off £100, unfortunately didn't work on the headphones i wanted, the H5 In-Ear Wired Bluetooth Headphones - Black -£199
Doesn’t work tried it
try this link than Birthday100/BDAYBOP100
£30 more for a new pair through the same ebay page is still a great deal if you don't want to take the risk on a refurb.
I got a black pair of these a couple of weeks ago to replace a pair of AKG K551s and other than the fact the box was open it was in pristine condition. Make of that what you will. The headphones are brilliant by the way. A bit more bass than the AKGs but very nice sounding
Have it your way, although you didn’t read what I have said.
Ok, you still wouldn't have any information regarding the personal hygiene of any previous owners. These are used headphones and frankly there are some disgustingly filthy people out there with some absolutely awful habits. It's bizarre to me that anyone would buy used headphones. Almost like buying used underwear imo.
