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've noticed that the noise cancelling on my newer black H8s is very weird compared to my previous pair. It makes a very high pitched noise and if I push slightly on the headphones it makes a very sharp and loud high frequency noise. It might be a new design but my old pair didn't sound like that. It seems to remove very much bass and introduces this strange noise. 

By the way, regarding the USB-cable: My old pair came with a very long cable that was very matte (using a material known to get sticky by time) and the new ones came with a very short and handy cable that I think is made of a higher quality material. 

Beolab 50, Beolab 20, Beolab 8000 x 2, Beolab 4000 x 2, 
BeoSound Core, BeoSound 9000, BeoSound Century, 
BeoLit 15, BeoPlay A1, BeoPlay P2, BeoPlay H9i, BeoPlay H6, EarSet 3i, 
BeoVision Avant 55, BeoPlay V1-40, 
BeoCom 6000 and so much else :)

Have you tried to take the ear cushions off and put them back on?
I've seen some people report that this can help with ANC issues.

It happens sometimes when I either adjust the headband or press down on the headband piece. It must be some interference with the antenna. Thought that they would fix it on these newer ones... oh well.

I have a new pair of Natural coloured ones on the way. Wish they did an argilla bright with silver metal, rather than gold

Duels:

Just received an email saying black and natural are available.  The new colours are on the website now too.

Will pick up a black pair from @Sheffield when they are in

I received an email about the black H8s being available.  I ordered a pair online with Beoplay and will receive them on Monday.  I will be able to compare the H8 with a pair of Beats Studio wireless noise cancelation headphones which I plan to give to my wife.

I wish I could go to a Bang & Olufsen store to buy the H8s but there are now too few stores left in the US.

Sounds like a defect. My first pair of H8's did the same thing, but my replacement pair was fine.

For a detailed view, swipe down from the top of the screen to access the notification center.

But be advised, it seems that the H8 is reporting the battery in steps. So it might show 100% for quite some time.

 

Beoplay V1 with Beo4, Beolab 14.4 and ATV4/Chromecast.

Beoplay A2, A9mki (w/ Chromecast Audio), H2, H3, H8.

Yippee!  I received my new black H8s today.  The sound is very detailed and clear.  No problems.

I am really shocked. This is not the Bang & Olufsen from the past.

Just wanted to let you guys know that I also experienced the super loud high pitch sound a few times with my H8 (serial #24XXXXX). It was actually so high and loud that my ear hurt for a few hours afterwards (that's of course on top of the bluetooth connectivity issues). Returning my H8 (which are already a replacement pair) this weekend!
