Premium listening with BeoPlay H8 
The Bang & Olufesn BeoPlay H8 premium wireless headphones offer high quality build materials and an authentic stereo sound. With thumping low bass frequencies and warm mid-ranges with clear relaxed treble available, you can enjoy audio from any music genre.
Active noise cancellation helps you to maintain focus on your music by letting the headphones filter out any low frequency ambient sounds. Meanwhile, passive noise isolation prevents your music from disturbing those around you.

Who are Bang & Olufsen?
Bang & Olufsen have worked in the art of sound transmission since 1925, and they enforce that expertise in every single product. This is why craftsmen in their workshop carefully calibrate and tune each loudspeaker by hand.

Full control of your music
The Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 premium headphones offer an intuitive touch interface. A short press on the right ear cup allows you to play/pause music. Raise or lower the volume by using circular gestures or swipe forward or back to change song. Swiping up or down enables or disables the active noise cancellation. Furthermore, a built-in microphone with call handling lets you answer your phone calls by tapping the centre of the earpiece. This is possible when your headphones are paired with a smartphone device.

Connect your favourite devices
Pair your headphones using the Bluetooth pairing slider located on the underside of the earcup. This then makes the headphones discoverable on a smartphone device.

For devices that lack Bluetooth capabilities, a 3.5mm auxiliary connection is provided. This is also handy should you wish to conserve battery power as these headphones can be used unpowered.

Custom your listening with the BeoPlay app
The BeoPlay app allows you to personalise your compatible B&O product with a name and colour. You can tune your music experience for your current mood using ToneTouch, which lets you customise your music experience. You can use the app to control your audio track and also display battery information.

What is the wireless range in metres?

Asked by: Guideo
It depends on the specification of the Host device as there are different specifications of Bluetooth using A2DP connectivity. Typical max range for Bluetooth connectivity using A2DP is approximately 10 metres (open range), however this can drop based on environment (transmitting through floors and walls for example).
