Rimowa and Bang & Olufsen have created a pair of limited-edition Beoplay H9i headphones for those who value rich sound in the same way they value purposeful travel experiences.
Made from authentic and long-lasting materials such as anodised aluminium and genuine leather, the RIMOWA x Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i headphones are housed in a signature RIMOWA aluminium case and come in a warm light grey colour that accentuates the aluminium expression. With powerful and precise Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound, the wireless Beoplay H9i headphones feature active noise cancellation and an innovative touch interface.
“The RIMOWA edition of our flagship Beoplay H9i headphones and exclusive RIMOWA carrying case, will make the world travel at the speed of sound,” said John Mollanger, Executive Vice President, President Brand and Markets at Bang & Olufsen.
RIMOWA and Bang & Olufsen have invited famed LA-based Swedish composer and record producer, Ludwig Göransson, to reflect on his music, his travel, and the importance they’ve had in his pursuit of mastery. A frequent traveller, ardent multi-instrumentalist, and Academy Award- and triple Grammy-winning producer for his work with Childish Gambino and the movie Black Panther, Ludwig opens up to RIMOWA and Bang & Olufsen about his approach to finding balance and sense of place through sound.
“I love using headphones that feel like they’re part of your body and that’s what Bang & Olufsen does, it makes you feel like your headphones are an extension of your ears,” said composer and record producer Ludwig Göransson.
The limited edition RIMOWA x Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i headphones will be available at a recommended retail price of EUR 800 / USD 900 / GBP 750.
The new Spring/Summer 2019 Collection from Bang & Olufsen celebrates the subtle colours of Scandinavian summer
The limited-edition Bang & Olufsen Spring Summer 2019 Collection includes a range of premium headphones, speakers and accessories in a new, ethereal colour scheme that eases from the ground, through the forest and up into the pale blue sky. The SS19 colours include Clay, a deep and natural colour inspired by the earthy tones of Scandinavian summer and dramatic seaside cliffs; Pine, a dark green that brings to mind the crisp freshness and deep contrasts of the Scandinavian forest; and Sky, a light blue tone with a cool sense of breezy summer afternoons.
The seasonal Spring/Summer 2019 Collection consists of lightweight, in-ear wireless earphones Beoplay E6, Bang & Olufsen’s top-of-the-line, wireless headphones Beoplay H9i with an over-ear wearing style and soft leather cushions, Beoplay A1 – the portable Bluetooth speaker for music and calls. The range also offers a delicate pouch for earphones and a bag for your headphones, made with Ria fabric from the Kvadrat/Raf Simons collection. The use of colour in Ria takes inspiration from Pointillism, the technique through which vibrant fields of colour are built up in precise, individual dots.
