Bang & Olufsen A8 Headphones Review

The Gadgeteer
21 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Update 3/28/10: Thanks to Vernon (see comments below) I have discovered I purchased a fake pair of earbuds. While I am a bit embarrassed, I still like them & they provide me rock solid use. I continue to exercise with them many times a week and they remain my main running earbuds.
  • Pros: Very well made, Excellent build materials, Engineered for the active user, Three way adjust-ability, Great sounding/well balanced listening experience
  • Cons: Somewhat expensive

  • Summary: I actually have, believe it or not, two sets of the A8 earphones. I bought the first one at a B&O store; someone bought a car and the earphones came as a gift. He didn't care for them, so he gave them to me. One set is black (old ones, bought around 2001 or so), one set is white (2014).
  • Pros: Brand name recognition, nice design, easy to drive, lasts for ages
  • Cons: Sound quality, cable quality, connector quality

A 8

14 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Grundsätzlich ist der A 8 recht neutral abgestimmt. Zudem verfügt er über eine exzellente Auflösung. Allerdings werden Fans der tiefen Töne mit den Sound nicht ganz zufrieden sein, denn die In Ears verfügen über wenig Bass und Grundton. Wir vergeben 4 von 5 Sternen.
  • Pros: Hoher Tragekomfort, Erstklassige Verarbeitung, Detailreiches Klangbild
  • Cons: Relativ teures Modell, Bassarmer Sound
