Rooted in design, craftsmanship, and innovation, renowned premium luggage brand RIMOWA and Bang & Olufsen have joined forces for a partnership that celebrates the unique link between sound and travel. RIMOWA and Bang & Olufsen have created a pair of limited-edition Beoplay H9i headphones that hone in on the craftsmanship that characterizes the two brands.
Made from authentic and long-lasting materials such as anodized aluminum and genuine leather, the RIMOWA x Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i headphones are housed in a signature RIMOWA aluminum case and come in a warm light grey color that accentuates the aluminum expression. With powerful and precise Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound, the wireless Beoplay H9i headphones feature active noise cancellation and an innovative touch interface.
“RIMOWA and Bang & Olufsen share a passionate approach to purposeful and elegant design. Both of them celebrate aluminum in their products,” said Alexandre Arnault, CEO of RIMOWA. “To strengthen the natural relationship between sound and travel, we have proudly partnered to create the RIMOWA x Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i headphones.”
With a common appreciation for craftsmanship, beautiful materials, and luxurious design, Bang & Olufsen and RIMOWA are uniquely attuned to those who value rich sound in the same way they value purposeful travel experiences. Together, they represent movement and a unique vision of elevated contemporary timelessness.
“For over 90 years, Bang & Olufsen has striven to be more than an audio company, a brand that stimulates people’s lives through a passion for sound, design & craftsmanship. With RIMOWA being much more than a luggage company, but a brand that makes travel an art and that disrupts its own marketplace, we are honoured and proud to have an ideal partner. The first materialization of our collaboration, 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.
The limited edition RIMOWA x Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i headphones will be available for $900 USD starting April 15, 2019, in select Bang & Olufsen and RIMOWA stores, online at bang-olufsen.com and rimowa.com, as well as in a few select third-party retailers.
