Nothing earth shattering as such!
Let’s see:
1- 27h longer battery life
50h vs 23h
2- 12 Ohms lower impedance
12 Ohms vs 24 Ohms
3- Newer Bluetooth version
5.1vs4.2
4- Weather-sealed (splashproof)
5- 0.5h shorter charge time
2h vs 2.5h
6- Can be folded
7- Straight plug and tangle free cables

I don’t think it’s worth the upgrade from H9i which I never had

H95 are pretty decent. Brother has a pair and had about ten minutes with it, sound was good. ANC isn’t as good as my Sony XM4 though but everything else is top notch.

£400+ vat mate! Seemed a bargain at that.
I saw them on a video on Facebook - https://youtu.be/dxHLtcHWnzI

I’ll stick some pics up later when I get round to opening them

For a comparison, I've put together a 2nd hand ping set with a new Odessey putter and I reckon I spent over £500 just on the driver, 3 wood, 2 hybrids and the putter. I think the irons were maybe another £200. I've put that together over a year or so. Still feel robbed though compared to the new Calloway set. Most of my clubs came out in 2014-16. Cry

Expensive hobby lads, you can spend £400 on a new driver or putter easily. Technology doesn't change that much in club design so just buy second hand and out the savings towards lessons. You will benefit a lot more!

nice set and massive bargain. There is a review of them on one of the golf channels on youtube. They are not that far off a 2k callaway set.

Did they have any carrybags in stock?

Yeah, they seem to be really well reviewed from what I’ve seen.

They did, but only a trolley bag. Think it was about £116 + vat so I’ve ordered a stand bag instead as I prefer them

The Callaway X Series one in black from Hot Golf on eBay. £99 including delivery, with a free towel but there’s also a 10% discount code that applies to it at the moment too. So £89

Get a lightly used ping hoofer. Best bags you can get, fact.
