Constant attention to details

Constant attention to detail, in all design phases, is why and how we differentiate ourselves above and beyond what else is out there. Details can be small and physical, integrated and holistic. It is essential though that the approach we apply to them is holistic, and that they are carefully aligned and seamlessly integrated. Because when that happens, we make products that stand the test of time.

  • The B&O Beoplay H8i are luxury headphones with an excellent battery life and good audio reproduction. … The B&O Beoplay H8i are a set of premium headphones that look and feel the part. It starts from the packaging of the product that includes a USB Type-C cable for charging, a 3.5mm cable for a wired connection, an airline adaptor, and, a carrying case that is nice and soft. Bang & Olufsen nails the look and feel of the H8i with its mix of leather, canvas and metal. The headphones feel substantial and special. Those sick of the plastic build of most headphones will appreciate the Materials and attention to detail. The Beoplay H8i wireless headphones are designed to sit on top of your ears so it's essential for them to be lightweight, which they are at 215 grams. The very soft cushioning on the ear-cups that is made from genuine leather also makes them comfortable for extended use.
