Summary: These are great for outdoor running... I live in the city and they allow excellent sound while not locking out ambient noise too much (safety). The downside, the cord wore out after 9 months of daily use and the sound went out on one side. Two friends with the same pair had the same issue. B&O was very good about replacing, though, and swapped them out in the store no questions asked once I showed proof of purchase.
Summary: for the price for these headphones and for Bang and Olufsen to put these out there after the quality of there other products is so great, I wasn't satisfied at all with the sound and of course the fit of these headphones, doesn't stay in place and you've got to jam them in your ear cavity to get a good fit and then it's totally uncomfortable, my workout routine in which I used them for was disturbed greatly, until BANG AND OLUFSEN gets there act together in the...
Summary: I bought these as a gift and my boyfriend loves them! He plays basketball a lot and wanted headphones that would stay on as he's moving, but that weren't extremely bulky. He also works from home so he wanted something that could easily be transferred from his gym bag to his work bag without going through a lot of wear and tear.
if you have small ear openings, this is not for you

Summary: i had another one, got lost. while the sound is awesome, the ear pieces do not fit well into my small ears. if i am in a noisy place, it does not fit well enough to block it. if i am listening to really good music at home, it will block out the sound of my housemates loud tv in another room. if it fits you, you will hear sound you have never heard before and this would be the one for you. wish it were the one for me.
Summary: The B&O A8s are a bit pricey, but the sound and comfort make you forget the price. You can wear these for hours without any discomfort. They have a great soundstage, and they do not go in-ear, which I do not like. Check these out if you use earphones for hours a day...the comfort will surprise you (even while exercising/running).
Build, quality, adjustability are all exceptional top notch. The sound however leaves me wanting more deep end.

Summary: I'm very impressed with the build, the sound is not quit as full as I would have hoped. Also the fit is different, but snug and extremely adjustable. I think I just need to stick with full sized or inner ear to get the sound I want.
Summary: I found the Earphones extremely performing. They are widely known in the professional interpreting circles. When you have them around your ears, not only you don't feel their presence owing to their lightness, but the sound you get is so clear that it helps your understanding of the message it carries, which is essential element in interpreting.
Summary: I'm a heavy jogger and I like having high quality earphones for my jogging expeditions. I also am rough on my electronics and earbuds always seem to die on me. I really like how strong the bass is on these earphones, and also how I can get them swapped out easily if they start sounding uneven since they have a three year warranty on them. The frames also feel solid and the earbuds are very comfortable.
