Bang & Olufsen A8 headphones review

I needed a new set of in-ear headphones for when I go running. I had recently bought some reasonably priced Sony ones, but they just don’t stay in your ears, so in the end I opted for the Bang & Olufsen A8s as one of the guys in my team has them and says they’re pretty good.

In their defence, they do stay in your ears better than any other pair of headphones I have had. Their piston that moves up and down and swivel loop “thing” means that you can anchor it quite well to you ears.

However, this does mean they’re quite tiresome to put on because every time you do you have to swivel the back out, push them in and then close it again to form a tight fit – useless for in the office when I need to take them off to have a conversation with someone every five or ten minutes.

The sound quality is disappointing too. It’s not that it’s bad, it’s just that for how good you would expect them to be at that price – they’re rubbish. They’re not much better than your run of the mill headphones and arguably the Apple ear pods I got with my iPhone produce a better sound. Definitely not worth the money.
