Bang & Olufsen A8 Headphones Review

Fantastic headphones


I absolutely love these headphones. This is my second pair of headphones from B&O and the old ones lasted me over 4 years and the only reason I got a new pair is because I wanted one :-). They fit perfectly around the ear. I sweat a lot and they don't...

Love these


I use these with my Samsung Galaxy SII. I love the build and ease of use. I have small ears and the regular earbud headphones almost always cause me discomfort after prolonged use. These headphones are awesome. Though the only downside I can think of...
