Styled in natural, the Beoplay H8i Wireless Headphones from B&O PLAY by Bang & Olufsen sport Bluetooth for wireless listening and active noise cancellation to damp down annoying, loud background noises.
In fact, four dedicated electret microphones have been built into the earcups for the specific purpose of measuring and then cancelling out the din around you. You’ll also find these headphones to have a sleek look and a comfortable fit, with their aluminum, leather, fabric, polymer, and rubber construction.
With 40mm electro-dynamic drivers, these on-ear headphones offer a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Microphones have been built into each earcup to ensure a crystal-clear sound when communicating over phone or with your digital assistant. You’ll also note controls in both earcups, which allow you to control ANC/Transparency Mode, Bluetooth pairing, play/pause, and more. With a built-in proximity sensor, the headphones will automatically pause when you take them off.
The battery on these headphones lasts quite a while—up to 30 hours with Bluetooth and noise cancellation, and up to 45 hours without the noise cancellation. Should you choose to use the included audio cable to listen to music the old-fashioned way, the headphones will last up to 42 hours with active noise cancellation enabled. All of this comes by way of a 3.5-hour charge. A USB charger, a flight adapter, and a carrying pouch are included. The headphones are compatible with the Beoplay app.
