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.

Very nice. The brown one looks great. Price is OK IF they perform well. Look at BEATS PRO they are £350 and I know of a lot of kids 18-21 who have saved their pennies for these.

If the H8 plays nicely with the iPhone i.e. the volume is loud enough, they could be on to a winner. I think they are very classy looking!

If they get the advertising etc done well, they'll sell masses of these. I even like the brown!

Every business class passenger on the planet should be sporting a pair of these. Brilliant

This is one of those products that makes me think.. why hasn't this been invented already?! (Apologies if there are already other companies with gesture based headphones out there, and I'm completely wrong.)

This seems extremely well executed, and I'll certainly want to try them out! Kudos B&O!

Yes I can see Emirates/Qatar offering these in business class! Someone at B&O needs to get these in the class airlines out there - what a marketing opportunity AND works both ways - it would be very good for the airlines too!

They couldn't stock enough if them I tell you Paul. Ditch everything and just build those and the Moment. Really exciting

I agree they look to be winners. Personally the ANC is more of an attraction than the wireless/bluetooth etc. I would expect the audio performance to be better than Bose headphones - the killer spec to make it a no-brainer is to out perform Bose at noise cancellation, they have managed to beat off all competitors to date!

Ban boring signatures!

Wow these are really exciting! I will be lining up for a brown pair. I love Wagners designs.

Brown is normally a color I don't even consider, but these brown H8s are classy and beautiful. Will buy for sure.

p.s. Thanks to Millemissen for hinting Bluetooth cans are in the pipeline. I love them! :)
