B&O PLAY by bang & olufsen ‘beoplay H8’ headphones that were officially announced at the 2015 CES in las vegas, functions using bluetooth 4.0 with aptX codec, in order to provide the listener with uncompromising sound no matter whether they are listening to music or talking on the phone. the premium, active noise cancellation device removes the cord and lets the user move freely to the tune. it is governed using a touch interface and a set of gentle hand gestures that includes short, long and double presses, swipes forward/back and up/down, and wheel to offer its full control.

weighing just 255 grams, the ‘beoplay H8’ which is developed by the bang & olufsen’s subsidiary, B&O PLAY, continues the family’s exquisite range of products. the headphones’ sense of carefully selected leathers is shown through its use of the beautifully aging, lambskin clad memory foam that rests gently against the ears. this resemblance of how materials matter is furthered with the sun-polished and anodized aluminum that enhances its stylish and luxurious personality.
