k3wt:

Would it be possible to use H7 ear pads on the H8?

Hi k3wt,

No, they are not interchangeable, I tried this on a pair in store a while ago.

Kind Regards,

Martin.

This just in from Struer:

 

Bluetooth reception improvements have been implemented in production from serial number:
Gray Hazel: serial number 2524849 (w1542), and
Argilla Bright: serial number 25120775 (w1543).
BeoPlay H8 Black and Natural are per definition OK from start with improved Bluetooth reception.
Anyone that can confirm this? For the rest of us, knowing that the receiver is in the right H8 cup should help a little (put the phone in the front right pocket, not the left one) - but it would be even better if they have actually solved the issue all together from these S/N´s.

Hmm, not impressed with the quality of my H8. On my third pair and they still squeak like a scared pig. Super Angry

This last replacement pair was refurbished and with a low 2511 S/N and started to sound terrible within hours.The pair before had a high S/N and they worked fine for 4-5 months or so.

And I've also noticed that when they get in to the high pitched squeaky mode, the sound quality alters adding a metallic haze over everything. And it also adds a ton of distortion on higher notes, e.g. a female vocal letting loose or an electric guitar. I think it was this "mode" that at one point when cold wind from the subway triggered them to go all in with a loop of squeakiness and I had to rip them off my head.

Starting to wonder if it's related to the shape of my ears and the feedback construction of the ANC. When removing/fastening the ear cushion triggers the high pitched noise when it gets close to the center raised black dot, maybe it's my ear that gets too close and triggers the freaky ANC squeaky mode? 

But then again, when they were new it didn't seem to matter really. Everything was OK when adjusting or handling them. At least for a while.

I'll have to ask B&O if it's possible to pay a little bit extra to get the H9 instead. Maybe they have figured it all out for that model? Just know that I'm getting tired of returning them all the time...

Hi. Just to let you know I bought the H9 one week ago. I had the acoustic feedback issue just like you described. I went to the shop in London to have it replaced straight and I still have the problem. I explained to the manager that I did not wanted to send them away with UPS as It makes it my problem where it should be a B&O problem really.  so they gave me a new pair but 5 min after tried it... still the same issue. I don't know if it's an hardware issue or what as I believe most of it is shared with the H8 or if it's my ears... as apparently no body at the job managed to reproduce the issue... and we tried 3 different person. I don't know what to do. Shall I actually return it again or it this some kind of default with the way the ANC work with B&O (which by the way makes it unusable) ?

Hi ppl,

I'm about to buy new pair of H8 headphones.

the serial number of an item is :  265XX721. How do u recommend, would it be a good pair of headphones according to serial number?!

Another issue is that the packing of the item looks like original but still it differs from the majority that I've seen on the net. you can see the image bellow. How do u think is it genuine ?!

It is just a cover, or is normal packaging underneath.

Hi guys, 

I'm trying to figure out the correct sequence of actions to switch between (previously paired) devices. I use my H8 with iPhone 7 and MacBook Pro 2016, but whenever I need to switch between the two, I'm still not sure what to do: do I have to just press the switch once (or twice?), press and hold it, do I have to force the connection on the device side (e.g. click Connect in MacBook bluetooth settings). I just randomly do something until the H8 gets connected to the right device. Is there a beautiful and seamless way to switch correctly? ) Thanks! 

Cheers,

-Ilya

I have this exact issue as well. Switching between the two, right now, is quite awkward. Any tips/pointers to get it to be more seamless, or at least to get the procedure documented and repeatable would be awesome.

I actually ran into this last night (MBP and iPhone). I think the easiest way is to turn the H8 into Bluetooth discovery mode (flashing blue light), and hit connect on your device's BT settings.

If I'm not mistaken, quickly flipping the switch to BT on the H8 will only toggle BT on or off. That said, if both previously paired devices are on, and within the same vicinity of the H8 when you turn on BT, the H8 will just connect to whichever it sees first (and pretty randomly).

Have anybody tried if it is possible to use ear cushion from H9? It looks like it should be the same when I look at pictures.

Is it possible to check which software you have?
