Overview: The Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 is an elegant
on-ear wireless headphone with high-performance sound. These Jakob
Wagner-designed headphones feature genuine lambskin-covered memory foam ear
pads, a high quality cow leather-covered head band, and polished anodized
aluminum construction. The H8s have technically advanced features such as
Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX, Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), dynamic 40mm drivers,
and on-board touch controls for your music and phone calls. The headphones come
with a 4' audio cable with airline adapter, a Micro USB charging cable, and a
plush soft storage pouch.
Drivers: The BeoPlay H8 is equipped with custom 40mm drivers
with strong Neodymium magnets for a full and rich musical performance.
Bluetooth: Equipped with Bluetooth 4.0, the H8 lets you roam
freely while listening to your favorite tunes. The aptX codec lets you enjoy
your music wirelessly without losing fidelity. The headphones are compatible
with the following profiles: Headset Profile (HSP), Hands Free Profile (HFP),
Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP), and Audio Video Remote Control
Profile (AVRCP). The H8 has a wireless range of about 30 feet.
Active Noise Cancellation (ANC): The BeoPlay H8 on-ear
headphones feature Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) to reduce ambient noise, so
all you hear is your music or phone call. External noise, picked up by
microphones on each ear cup, is cancelled by inverted sound waves reintroduced
into the headphones. You can also use the ANC by itself to simply shut out
external noises. Active Noise Cancellation can be used easily turned on or off
with the touch controls when you're listening wirelessly, or with the on/off
switch when you're plugged in.
Rechargeable Battery: The Bluetooth and ANC features are
powered by an 800mA Lithium-ion rechargeable battery. The battery charges in
about 3 hours via the supplied Micro USB cable. A fully charged battery gives
you enough power Active Noise Cancellation for up to 35 hours, Bluetooth for up
to 16 hours, or ANC and Bluetooth for up to 14 hours.
Cable: The BeoPlay H8 features a 48" cable with 3.5mm
plugs at each end that allows you to use the headphones when the battery becomes
exhausted, or Bluetooth cannot be used. The ANC feature can be used when
connected via the cable, however, the touch controls do not operate.
