Product Details

Bang & Olufsen Black A8 Series Earphones - 1640611

Adjustable for better sound
Bang & Olufsen Earphones are designed to fit the individual ear and deliver unsurpassed sound quality. With conventional earphones much of the sound never makes it into the ear.
These earphones are specially developed to closely match the contours and curves of the ear – so you hear the sounds that would otherwise slip away.

Outstanding acoustics and ergonomics
Each element can be manoeuvred up or down and side-to-side to ensure the perfect fit. In fact, Bang & Olufsen Earphones are adjustable in so many ways, and are so comfortable to use, you might end up wondering whether you are actually wearing them or not. Inside, they contain many of the same acoustic competences found in our larger loudspeakers, just miniaturised.

High-tech jewelery
The earphones are crafted from anodised aluminium and hard rubber giving them both flexibility and robust durability. They come with their own specially designed leather carrying case as the perfect portable music partners for a leather-clad BeoSound 2.

      Comments about Bang & Olufsen Black A8 Series Earphones:

      I bought the A8 after some research. I choose A8 over in-ear ones because I was not looking for total noise isolation (although I am saving up to eventually buy custom in-ear monitors). As for the sound, I think these are very good. I have read a lot of reviews saying that the bass is weak, but I find no problem in that part. Obviously, the bass is "weaker" than in-ear ones or full-sized headphones, but for me I think it is fine as it is (I hate it when bass overpowers everything). Other reviews also say that highs are good with the A8, and I agree. I was especially blown away when I listened to classical pieces; I would say these are at the same level as my Sennheiser full-sized headphones in that area. I would not classify myself as an audiophile, so I do not know all the headphone mechanical jargon, but I have been playing instruments since I was little and I would like to think that I have relatively well-trained ears.As for wearing them, I found it a bit awkward at first. There are so many moving parts that I needed to jiggle it around a bit to find the "correct" orientation and fit (and I needed to use the mirror a bit). But after a few days, I got used to putting them on with no problem. At first, even when I had them on correctly, these felt like they were about to fall off. I actually ran and jumped around, and to my surprise, these stayed on. I was also worried a bit before purchasing the A8, because I sometimes wear glasses and have my hair down, but I had no problem. I even tried them with my sunglasses and I was still able to put them on. I guess another good thing with the A8 is that they look very stylish, if you care about such things. I admit, the price is a bit high, but after few weeks of trying these out, I think they are worth it, but there are others out there at lower prices.I would caution people buying these from non-authorized sellers (e.g. [...]). If they are at a price that are too good to be true, there is a high chance that they are fakes, so do your research!

        Comments about Bang & Olufsen Black A8 Series Earphones:

        I'm on my second pair of these headphones. They're excellent - outstanding sound. Work well for exercising due to over-the-ear construction. Had to replace my first pair because the wire broke. Disappointing, but then again, I did have them for over 5 years and got much use out of them. Like them so much that I didn't shop around - just went straight back to these.
