      Best headphones there are

      I have Bose QC, Beats Studio Pro (would rate them higher, but so heavy), and now B&O's. Perfectly balanced speakers, acoustic wonders. The Beats are heavy on ba I have Bose QC, Beats Studio Pro (would rate them higher, but so heavy), and now B&O's. Perfectly balanced speakers, acoustic wonders. The Beats are heavy on bass, Bose QC's are better, but B&O are best! Also, for a few more $ you can purchase a very nice leather carrying case, premium. Nice touch since they make it an optional purchase, instead of bumping the price (nice option). Overall, my experience and limited perspective (comparing what I own, what I know): - Bose is good, not a bad option for the $, with noise cancellation too. And, though most don't like this (I do): it's powered by a single AAA battery. So take a couple extra, and you'll never run out, no recharge necessary. - Beats Pro (highest priced, end line) are extremely sturdy/strong and they will hold up well, but acoustically Bass heavy, structurally heavy too (fatigued my neck), clunky (if you know what I mean? - B & O: priced lower, but has a higher fidelity (highest of the three). It's lighter on the neck, and aesthetically the most beautiful pair of headphones, great Scandinavian design (Denmark). That extra expense for the leather case, "Hard Graft," is highly recommended, and it serves double duty as a stand (very clever). My new favorites, the others have been passed down to my children.

      Amazing design, good sound.

      My favourite headphones in the past have been the Bowers & Wilkins P5, but I was looking for a new set of wireless headphones and picked up the H8. First off, My favourite headphones in the past have been the Bowers & Wilkins P5, but I was looking for a new set of wireless headphones and picked up the H8. First off, the design of the H8 is incredible. Quality materials, very comfortable and light, and the touch controls are extremely convenient. It takes a bit of practice to use them correctly - at first you often stop the sound when you meant to change the volume - but the gestures work well once you've mastered them. Second, they sound great. I find the bass to be just right, and the treble to be a bit bright without being too bright. The Noise Cancelling works well, without any drastic change to the sound, and I love how you can easily turn it on/off with the gesture on the ear cup. Finally, the wireless bluetooth drops every once in a while, and I'm not sure if that's common for wireless headphones, but it's rare enough that it hasn't really bothered me much. The occasional drop is worth it for the wireless convenience. Overall, they're a great looking and sounding pair of wireless headphones. Head in to your local Apple store and check them out!
