I was expecting the H8s to be good but I didn’t think they’d be this great. Sometimes you simply get what you pay for.

Macnn

Expensive, but worth it

from Macnn

Yes, $500 is a lot of money to pay for a set of headphones. However, we can recommend the B&O BeoPlay H8s without hesitation. The upfront spend might hurt, depending on your budget, but you will soon forget the pain as you get immersed in a noise-free, and close to ideal listening experience. In fact, for many listeners, these cans will sound right on the money.

What Hi-Fi

Style meets great features and good sound in B&O’s flagship on-ears

from What Hi-Fi

The asking price may be a little steep, but if you deem both Bluetooth and noise-cancelling as must-have features, the B&O BeoPlay H8s are ones to consider. While the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless’ more open, transparent sound stop the B&Os from topping our wishlist, they certainly get a good shoo-in for second.

Truly as good as they get in this segment

from Minimally Minimal

The BeoPlay H8s are truly as good as they get in this segment.

Yes, they do cost a bit more than their competitors but they’re built using quality materials, and look far better than anything else in the market. They also sound spectacular with a great balance of clarity and deep bass, making them super versatile....

Pocket-lint

Clear sound, effective noise-cancellation, quality construction, booming bass

from Pocket-lint

The Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 on-ear headphones look great, hammer out bass, and their active noise-cancellation is brilliant. But for £399 they're not cheap. And considering the feedback that can enter the earcup enclosures when, say, walking around, our praise isn't quite as lofty as that considerable price tag.

A swanky Bluetooth headphone with a price to match

from Cnet

The $500 Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 wireless on-ear headphone looks great, sounds very good and is loaded with features, including noise canceling, but a few small flaws take away some of its luster.

Mashable

Fancy wireless headphones with slick gesture controls

from Mashable

B&O's penchant for timeless, classy design is rivaled only by a few companies like Apple and Braun. I'm almost certain the H8 will still look great in 10 or 20 years. The H8 is a very attractive wireless headphone model with a nice solid build and useful active noise-cancellation, but its sound could use some more kick and richness to it, in my opinion.

The Huffington Post

Big look, big sound

from The Huffington Post

The H8s then are not without fault - they're slightly tight and the sound -- although excellent -- might be a little too bass-heavy for some. Conversely, they're some of the best-looking headphones we've ever laid eyes upon, the battery life is impressive, as is the noise-cancelling.
