B&O Play by Bang & Olufsen announces the launch of the BeoPlay H8

Love the freedom of wireless headphones but don’t want something that’s large and clunky?

B&O Play’s new BeoPlay H8 might be just the thing with its sleek aluminum design and 14 hour battery life. Designed by award-winning Danish industrial designer Jakob Wagner, the BeoPlay H8 is Wagner’s way of “using the right materials in an intelligent way”, and features materials like anodized aluminum, cowhide leather, and smooth lambskin for a premium finish.

The headphones weigh just 255g, and feature Active Noise Cancellation, Bluetooth 4.0, and an aluminum touch interface that allows you to answer or end calls, adjust the volume of what’s playing, and even turn noise cancellation on and off. All through the touch interface on the right ear cup of the headphones, and it even works with gloves on.

The BeoPlay H8 in Gray Hazel and Argilla Bright.

The BeoPlay H8 continues to operate even if the battery runs out, as you can simply plug in an audio cable to enjoy the same Bang & Olufsen signature sound, even without noise cancelling enabled.

The BeoPlay H8 is available now at S$698 in a choice of Gray Hazel or Argilla Bright, at all major authorized retailers.
