Bang & Olufsen Earphones: Excellent sound quality but awkward and expensive
13 March 2011
Summary: Crikey these headphones are expensive. You're looking at at least £80-£90 quid for a pair but they are admittedly both durable and extremely well made. The speakers themselves are connected to a solid metal frame, and they come with hinged 'hooks' which go around the earlobes, thsu allowing the speakers to be firmly attached to each side of your head. Or at least that's how they are supposed to work.
Pros: solid design, excellent sound quality, adapter on cable
Cons: very expensive, design won't fit everyones ears, hooks get caught on long hair.
Summary: When it comes to listening to music on the move, there's generally a choice between earbuds and headphones. The advantage of earbuds is they're small and lightweight and can easily be carried around in a pocket. However, they can be uncomfortable and sometimes fall out if you're on the move, they can also suffer from poor sound quality because of their size. Headphones will stay in position and the sound quality is generally superior.
Pros: Looks great, sounds great, comfortable to wear.
Summary: One of the most important things for me when training in the gym or out road running is being able to listen to good motivating music to keep pushing me. In the last 10 years of training I have been through countless pairs of earphones which have broken or stopped working for one reason or another. About 18 months ago I decided it was time to invest in a pair of real good quality earphones and decided to give the Bang & Olufsen A8's a go.

Summary: My husband and I live in Canary Wharf, and it's hard to pass ten people and not see at least four of them sporting these headphones. With a Bang & Olufsen store just down the road from us, the hubby decided to pick up a pair to use with his iPod Nano. At the time, I was still using the bog standard white buds that came with the iPod, but was looking for headphones that I could wear to the gym without fear of them falling out.
Pros: Look great; sound quality you know to expect from B&O
Cons: Difficult to get the hang of putting them in; liable to fall out/off; quite pricey

Summary: Oh boy these earphones look good! I had a haircut just so that I could show them off more! These are a stunning set of earphones both visually and audibly, besides looking fantastic they do sound really rather tasty. The sound quality is top notch and they do full justice to ABBA as well as Children Of Bodom.
Pros: Lovely quality, amazingly comfortable, and durable.
Cons: A little expensive, and the quality can't be heard in a noisy environment
Summary: First off, these headphones appear to be very well made. Before, I stuck with the standard apple iPod headphones, and got through 3 or so every year as they all inevitably broke. The B & O headphones are very adjustable, and can probably fit pretty much any ear type. It takes a while to put them on the first time, but after a while it becomes second nature. The sounds quality is very good and crisp.
Pros: Great sound quality, very well made, stylish
Summary: I was slightly apprehensive when decidng on whether to purchase these earphones - after all, the price (about £110 12 months ago, but is extremely variable among shops) is one heck of a lot of money for a pair of earphone, but im an audiophile myself, and i liek to have the best sound reprodiction that i can whilst on the move. Conveniently, i also had a small bonus at work, so i was able to afford them. I purchased my pair at a specialist audio shop near me.
Pros: Stylish, Excellent Reproduction, Unique
Cons: Costly, Easily scratched, Badly designed strain guard
