About a week ago, Bang & Olufsen surprised us with the introduction of its Motion lineup of audio products. The E6 and E8 are the brand’s first Bluetooth earphones that embrace an active lifestyle. This time, it’s creating something that it does best, which is a high-end pair of Bluetooth headphones. Let’s meet the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H8i–a sleek and luxurious item that boasts superior comfort. This is an on-ear model with a distinct aesthetic touch that can only come from the company’s designers.
You’re looking at a premium item that only settles for the best ergonomics, comfort, and materials. The stunning aesthetics of the H8i uses anodized aluminum and natural leather, which is always a fashionable combination. Put these on and prepare to enjoy an acoustic treat from the two 40 mm electro-dynamic drivers on each ear without any distractions. The active noise cancellation (ANC) system filters out background noise so that it’s just you and the music. Moreover, you can toggle this function off anytime when you need to hear your surroundings.
When Sony and Bose are not the brands for you, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H8i will gladly accompany you on your travels. Long-haul flights are not a problem since you’re getting 30 hours of Bluetooth with ANC. The non-removable 1,110 mAh lithium-ion battery lasts even longer with Transparency Mode, which offers up to 45 hours. Additionally, built-in proximity sensors automatically pause audio when you take off the headphones and resumes once you wear them again. You can get these in Natural or Black colors to match your style.
