Bottom Line

The Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 drives out great sound and looks gorgeous while doing so, but it lacks noise-cancellation and has some potential durability issues.

The Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 noise-cancelling headphones have received positive reviews for their overall sleek and sumptuous design, their great overall sound, their easy to use touchpad and their excellent Bluetooth connectivity. The 14-hour battery life was also a favorite amongst users. There were mixed reviews about the noise cancellation, with some users suggesting that it is not as satisfactory as they had hoped for. Others found that the durability wasn’t that great and that its on-ear design made it uncomfortable for long hours of use. The Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 has a luxurious design and finish and delivers great sound reproduction, but the noise-cancellation and durability may put some off.
