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.

I'm curious to know how the aluminium touch controls will work under certain circumstances like cold or humid weather.

I have to see the design in real life to judge and I have to listen. Would be nice if they sound more Hifi wise...

In Terms of technology I think that Bluetooth plus Active Noise Cancelling is an ideal combination! When I bought my fantastic Sony MDR-1RNC Headphones I head to choose: Bluetooth OR Noise Cancelling. Nowadays with the H8 I can have both.

And believe me: For frequent traveling the noise canceling feature is a BIG plus of comfort. I love it when I'm sitting on the plane, switch the Sony headphones on, here the power on chime and *SWOOSH* the noise of the plane's turbines is far away. :)

Lightning ports on headphones: This is not a good development as Apple is trying to control everything on the technology field, dictate everybody and - if you are not on their path - sue everybody else! In my opinion this is not good for choice on the market. I know, many people will say "No, Apple is great and friendly!" but if you watch their overall activities in the past few years... the signs are there. :)

The controls use pressure, not capacitance so can be used even with gloves.

does anyone know if you can easily replace the battery and how many charge cycles it can take ?

mine was delivered today, next monday I have my  first flight with it.

Its not coming with a proper case, just a sack, the controls do work but taking some getting used to, for example I can only switch noise canceling off using my thumb, not my pointer finger. 

Need to play with it some more ..... will report back next week how trip went ....

Just had a play with the H8 at my dealer this morning, they sound very good,bit of a difference in sound going form noise canceling on to off,being very left handed will take a bit of getting used to right handed control.

Ordered a pair coming next week.

Its all about the music.

What I found after using it a bit, if I use my thumb instead of my index finger it works flawless. Maybe thats because it has more surface area.

Sound wise I like them, noise canceling works, I had my dryer on and the noise from it got muted. There is no hissing when you are listening to quiet periods of music.

Only disappointment is that there is no travel case to store the thing, the little bag may not be enough protection when on the road.
