Updated at 3:53PM, May 14th: Amazon’s Lightning Deal is now over. If you missed out, it’s selling the H9i in a “renewed” state for as low as $259.99. These will be refurbished and, according to Amazon, look and operate as a new model would. It states that these may not come in the original box or with original accessories, though, a 90-day warranty isn’t horrible.

Bang & Olufsen’s H9i over-ear headphones are $249 for only a few hours, or until supplies last, at Amazon. Normally around $400 (the lowest recorded price is $328 via pricing data gathered by Camel Camel Camel), these headphones usually aren’t worth the cost, since Sony’s 1000XM3 offer better comfort and sound quality. But at $150 off, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a set of wireless headphones that can match the H9i’s noise-canceling ability and stellar design, built with premium materials like a cowhide leather-covered headband and lambskin ear pads.

The H9i are the successor to the Bang & Olufsen H9 headphones, which my colleague Vlad Savov reviewed in early 2017. One of the biggest improvements to this latest model is the switch from Micro USB to USB-C charging, though the H9i also boost a battery life of 18 hours before needing to recharge, which is a four-hour improvement.
