About the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Form 2i

The art of sound

Lots of headphones can claim to be works of art. But few can back it up like the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Form 2i. These headphones are on permanent display in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. That says more about the cool, sleek design of these headphones than I could. I'm better off describing the clear, detailed sound these headphones offer. The driver enclosures employ a semi-open design, which offers spacious sound that's much bigger than you'd expect from such compact headphones. Highs are crisp and clean, midrange and vocals are up-front and warm, and the tight bass is never over-accentuated. The combination of sound, style, and comfort makes the Form 2i headphones a great bargain.

B&O Beoplay 2i On-ear Headphones

Ed S from Arizona on 9/27/2015

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased the B&O Headphones to listen to my iPod classic while traveling on the plane. Prior to using them on the plane, the sound quality was excellent. The light weight was just what I was looking for in a pair of headphones. However, once on the plane I realized there was still a lot of plane background noise from the engine which was lessened but not completely eliminated..I had to adjust the volume to help compensate. If you are purchasing headphones for air travel you should buy a noise reduction product. Otherwise, the B&O headphones are quite adequate for quality listening.

Pros: Light weight, stylish, very good sound quality from an iPod.

Cons: Very poor background noise reduction during plane travel.

Features

Overview: The Bang & Olufsen (B&O) Form 2i is a sleek, lightweight on-ear headphone with high-performance sound. The original Form 2 was designed by Steve McGugan in 1983, and gained instant critical success in 1985 when it hit the streets. In 1992, the Form 2 became a part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. This 21st-century update by B&O Play features an in-line remote and microphone that is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Design: The B&O Play Form 2i weighs only 3 ounces, and is comfortable to wear for hours. The dynamic, semi-open design delivers a well-defined soundstage with accurate highs, a focused middle, and good, solid bass that's not over-emphasized. You'll hear your music the way the artists intended it.

Cable: The Form 2i has a 46" cord that attaches on 2 sides, and terminates into a 3.5mm plug. On the left side is an in-line 3-button remote and microphone. The controls are compatible with Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The outer buttons control Volume Up and Volume Down. The center button controls various music playback and phone call commands.

My pair of these head phones slide as well if I'm active when I use them, and they have no adjustment to make them tighter. And yes they are somewhat far from the ear, but that benefits me because I wear them at work and need to be able to hear what's going on around me. Other than the sliding, I think these headphones are comfortable and sound good.

I have the same problem they slide off my head. They are better for use if you are sitting or on plane.
[ Mark  Mar 06, 2016 ]

The headphones are adjustable so I don't have trouble keeping them on my head. The only complaint I have of them is that I was hoping for a little better noise cancellation on airplanes. Other than that the sound quality is very good..hope this helps.
