Is 4 months and 23 days from the day that I receiving my h95.

Today I charging again. This is, I think the 10th or 11th time in 143 days (I stopping counting after 7th time), and from the second or third charging, I always doing this when the battery is 30-40% remaining (I never allowing complete depletion). I think my average is about 3-4 hours of using the h95 a day. So, about 500 hours of listening to music and so little charging times is really, really excellent, and this without using the charge 100% every time!

This is other aspect of the h95 that people don't mentioning very much (never in the APM thread, for sure) and that is big positive aspect. So, in my case, with my everyday average, the battery of my h95 will be good for many years. I think I saying this before, but after 1 month with the AirPods Max, my respect for the h95 is more strong.

I fully agree with your opinion. I‘m using the APM since 3 weeks especially in Home Office. It’s fine for connecting with iPhone, iMac and iPad. With the H95 I always have to choose headphone on the iPhone when a telephone call comes in. But the battery management of the H95 is much much better. Today I started Home Office at 7:30 a.m. with 52 % battery on the APM. At 4 p.m. there was only 10 Percent left. With the H95 you get double time of battery life. Another big issue for me is that the audiogram cannot be saved in the APM. When using my Apple Watch, I have to use factory setting. The H95 saves the in the B&O App selected sound setting in the headphone, so you have the same sound with each device. BTW I only use the optimal setting in the B&O App. And when I will enjoy music after work, the H95 is my first choice. I hope Apple will bring spatial audio to Apple TV that would be an advantage for the APM.

Yes, if you, like me, having many Apple products (I have MacBook Pro, iPhone, iPad, apple watch and apple tv), the APM offering some good advantages (and great anc and ambient mode too), but for me the h95 isn't having only better (factory) sound, but I'm not repeating all the opinions I having of both headphones where the h95, for me personally, is a very better user experience in different aspects.

For me is still interesting that even when head-fi is audio forum (supposing the sound quality is priority!) and people in the APM thread really aren't showing interest in the h95 even when is possible trying for free for one month. But this is ok, and is maybe not big surprise, and maybe isn't bad thing at the end. (my teenager part is very happy feeling special and different!) :)

About the battery, yes, like I saying before, the h95 battery is really incredible. But one thing I seeing too is that I don't using my h95 for maybe 3 days in Christmas time and, if my memory is good, the battery don't changing at all or only very, very little. This isn't true for the APM, I think. (by the way, this is a very, very BIG problem with the sennheiser momentum true wireless 1st gen (IEM) where the battery finishing if you don't using for only few days, a serious problem that sennheiser fixing only until the 2 gen and this making the 1st gen selling very cheap after many reports of the problem).

I never stopping loving my h95, but like with al the devices, after few weeks or months the new 'love affair' isn't so strong. My love for the h95 growing more again a lot after I having the APM for one month (but I must giving 100% honesty because I having probably more problems that the majority of people reporting (or they're big apple fanboys!), with heat, sweating ears sometimes, irritation of skin sometimes with the earpads cloth material and discomfort after about one hour outside of my ears).

(**By the way, only now I looking your head-fi name and is "rael" not "real" so now I understating why you asking about the Genesis remasters. I love 'The Lamb' and the other early albums with PG, but I'm young and never seeing this band live with PG. But I'm very lucky I seeing the 1982 Genesis Reunion in Milton Keynes with PG (and S Hackett). This day is a really very interesting day in my memory...)

In the german hifi-Forum it is the Same. I started a H95 thread, but there were only a few comments. I don’t know why more people try this great headphone. Last week we started there a round trip with the Valco VMK 20, that means you test the headphone for a few days and then send it further to next Person, who is interested. When all persons have tested each one writes a review. Maybe such a round trip would be a good thing with the H95, I‘m sure it would get a lot of fans. BTW, the Valco does not sound bad, but it’s very cheap made and the case smells very strong. Little Bit offtopic: Unfortunately I saw Genesis only in 1987 for the first time, but I like the old songs with PG the most, they were the basis for my musical direction (together with the first Marillion Albums and Rush).
