Features:

  • Widening Horizons
    We simply love music. That is why, over the years, we have put together a variety of different playlists. They feature songs that are dear to us, tracks that make us want to dance, work or relax. The music is for you to enjoy, at home or on the go.
    On that matter, your daily commute is also an excellent opportunity to widen your horizon, learn new stuff or just get inspired.
  • Materials Matter
    Creating exquisite products is, of course, a matter of defining how they look, and how they work. But also how they feel. The sense of real and carefully selected leather. Of lambskin clad memory foam that gently rests on your ears. Carefully sun-polished and anodised aluminum that feels responsive to the touch. That is what you can expect from BeoPlay H8, and that is why we pride ourselves in calling this, not only the most advanced headphone we've ever made, but simply, the best.
  • Uncompromising Sound
    Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX codec gives you uncompromising sound, whether listening to music or talking on the phone.
  • Touch Control
    An intuitive touch interface gives you full control of all functionality. Turn your music on and off, answer calls, switch Active Noise Cancellation on and off, and much more. All at your fingertips.
  • Luxurious Lather
    Carefully selected high quality cow leather makes BeoPlay H8 both stylish & luxurious. Also, everyday wear and tear merely add patina, and BeoPlay H8 ages beautifully. 
  • Perfect Fit
    The softness of the lambskin on the ear pads makes BeoPlay H8 a pleasure to wear. The memory foam inside the ear pads adapts ensuring great comfort.
  • Perfectly Processed
    Anodised aluminium perfects the look of a premium headphone. No compromises are made in the design and production of BeoPlay H8. 
  • Leave It On
    At just 255 grams, BeoPlay H8 is one of the lightest in its class, giving you optimal comfort. You simply don't want to take it off.

Comments about Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 Natural Wireless Headphones:

These earphones do look great and fit comfortably. The issues come from sound volume. They do have clean crisp highs and desent low end bass. However they simply do not get loud enough. I'm not saying I need them to get so loud I go deaf but these are really low even at the highest volume. I wanted to love these headphones because I'm a B&O fan but for the price these are not keepers. I have other brand earphones that are half the price that sound almost on par with these but go way louder volume wise. Although the H8's have a little edge on the cleaner sound the loudness issue is unacceptable for me.

    They are surprisingly comfortable for on-ear headphones. That said after a few hours I take them off and rub my ears a bit.

      Comments about Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 Argilla Bright Wireless Headphones:

      This was a fine replacement for my worn-out bose over the ear headphones. Looks great and build quality is awesome. It took a little getting use to switching to on-the-ear style, but they work and wear just fine. Bluetooth has been flawless so far though the wired connection is a bit brighter. Battery life is more than acceptable. The touch dial took a little getting use to, but is convenient. At this price a hard case would be nice. Overall, very happy with the purchase.

        Comments about Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 Argilla Bright Wireless Headphones:

        I use these headphones at work to listen to music and cancel the noise from my neighboring office. I also use them when I walk my dog using my iPhone and Bluetooth connection. They are great. The audio quality is excellent, as I have come to expect from B&O. The ability to use the headphones with and without a cord is an added plus. I only have to charge them once a week, which is an added benefit.

          Comments about Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 Argilla Bright Wireless Headphones:

          The H8 is a gorgeous headphone. The materials are top notch. It's also fortunate that the sound is most importantly up to par with their looks. I have the Parrot Zik v1 which is a perfect direct comparison feature-wise. Where the H8 excels is in style and weight. Between the two, the H8 is the head turner. Sound-wise, the Zik goes deeper In bass reproduction than the H8. But aside from that, they are both excellent performers. A main difference is the H8 doesn't rely on a dedicated app for noise cancellation and sound control like the Zik. This is a good or bad thing depending on your perspective. I do enjoy the DSP adjustment that the Zik app offers. But the H8 sounds just as great without all of that extra complexity. Turning noise cancellation off on the H8 is more convenient that the Zik since you do it on the H8 touch panel with a swipe. The Zik has poor battery life at 4hrs. The H8 is so much better: Easily 10hrs of real use. B&O claims 14. I can see that being accurate.

          A negative to the H8 is the touch panel response. It requires firm pressure to register circular volume adjustment. Swipes for track and noise cancellation control is less cumbersome. It all works on the H8, but the Zik has the best touch response between the two. The Zik had the added feature of automatically pausing and resuming media when the headphones are removed and placed back on your head. If the H8 also had similar, it would get 5 stars from me.

          The H8 is a really lovely headphone. No regrets with it at all.
