Bang & Olufsen is finally cutting the cords and going wireless with their new BeoPlay headphone, the H8. The H8 is their first pair of headphones to have wireless and noise canceling features. They’ve also designed it with a touch-senstive earcup that controls everything from activating noise canceling to headphone volume.
Construction is as premium as you would expect in a B&O product with lambskin leather and aluminum hardware. Wireless connectivity is achieved through Bluetooth 4.0 and can run for 14 hours with Bluetooth and noise canceling activated, 16 hours with Bluetooth alone, and 35 hours when used in noise canceling mode. The H8 is available for today for $ 499 at Bang-Olufsen.com.
