Bang & Olufsen announces its first collaboration with global leader in premium luggage, RIMOWA. Rooted in design, craftsmanship, and innovation, the two iconic brands with strong ties to aluminium have joined forces for a partnership that celebrates the unique link between sound and travel.
A Partnership of Discovery and Innovation
Together, RIMOWA and Bang & Olufsen have created a pair of limited-edition Beoplay H9i headphones that hone in on the craftsmanship that characterises the two brands. 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.
To celebrate their shared ideas, 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.
Pricing and Availability
The limited edition RIMOWA x Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i headphones will be available at a recommended retail price of $1,280, exclusively at the Bang & Olufsen flagship store at Grand Hyatt.
