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.

elephant:
My early June H8s do drop out.

However I still love them.

I now use them both wired and unwired.

I have not worked out why sometimes they drop out and sometimes with seemingly similar activities they are rock steady.

Still their noise reduction (on ear isolation), noise cancelling, and bass make them a great buy - for me.

Thank you for your answer!

I also use them wired and wireless. Mainly wired as I think it preserves the battery.

They paid for themselves on my trip to Hong Kong and Japan with the noise cancelling on the plane.

What colour did you get?

Ditto for the 14 non-stop hours from LAX to MEL ...

If they'd had them in Love Collection livery I would have gone for that ...

Instead a chose a "match" to the H6 ... with idea that in coupled mode we'd look great together Big Smile

Hello all,

I was thinking about buying some H8s and so have read the threads and heard all about the dropouts some are having. Understandably I was a little apprehensive about parting with £400 with the issue still looming.

With that in mind I went into the dealer today to physically try a pair with my iPhone 6 and I thought I'd share my experience.

Pairing the headphones was a doddle and with the phone on the table the H8 sounded great! However, I had a dropout as soon as I put the phone in my jeans pocket and then repeatedly if I put my hand on or near my phone. When I took the headphones off to show the dealer they played fine so can only summise that when you have the headphones on your head it reduces the signal to the phone enough for a hand to cause the dropouts.

Sadly, as I really want a pair of wireless B&O headphones (that work without me having to hold my phone in my hand), it's made me decide to wait until the next generation to see if the situation is any better.

As I said some folks seem to be having no issues at all so would just advise people to test them out first!

Just picked up my new pair and it seems like I cannot charge them. Wherever I try I just gets a rapidly flashing red lamp. Left them over night same result. B&O support told me to return them to shop. Anyone had the same issue?

Perhaps try remove the battery for a few minutes and then connect it again. And then the cable to charge. Do you use a charger with high enough capacity? Try another charger otherwise.

Thanks, but no different. Tried several iPad/iPhone chargers + three computers.

Strange thing but then they probably are defective in some way. But you'll be happy when you get a working pair :).

I had a very similar problem. 

The first time I charged them everything was working as it should. After the first charge was used up, and I tried to charge them up again the problems started. 

I had the same red flashing as you describe. But I also had a sequence where it flashed orange as it should for about 3-5 flashes, but was interrupted by 3 red flashes. That sequence just repeated itself.

I tried different chargers. IPhone, iPad, 3. party, my car. As far as I could tell it acted differently based on the power output. I never got it to work though.

 

All of this happened during a holiday abroad, so I couldn't really do anything about it. When I came home I tried plugging it in again, and apparently it started charging as intended. But I didn't was a faulty device, so I got a replacement by my local dealer.

On our four-hour flight to Spain, I had to reconnect to the H8's five times, and my girlfriend had to reconnect to the H8's three times. The Bluetooth-connection simply disappears, and the H8's has to be manually chosen within Bluetooth setting in our iPhones.

Happens daily for me. I'm replacing mine when I have time (which I rarely do).

Usually only happens at the start of a session so I am learning to live with it.

Using H8s wired in to the airline's system was 14 hours of uninterrupted bliss for me.
