BeoPlay H8 is designed to bring you sound the way the artists intended –honest, clean and with passion.
Carefully selected materials.
Exclusive, carefully selected materials such as anodized aluminum and natural leather guarantee absolute comfort and let you travel in style. The materials age with beauty and the more you use the headphones, the more they patinate, and the more personality they get.
BeoPlay H8 weighs only 255 g making it the lightest active noise cancellation headphone on the market. You can easily wear the headphones for hours - on your ears or resting around your neck. The sleek ergonomics ensure optimal comfort and the low weight aluminum makes BeoPlay H8 a perfect travel companion.
Operation at the ear cup.
The BeoPlayH8 touch module is made from a 0,3 mm thick aluminum plate, hovering a few tenths of a millimeter above a circuit board filled with electrodes. When you place your finger on the aluminum plate it bends towards the electrodes that are laid out in a so-called “piechart” pattern. The amount of signal on the electrodes determines the placement of the finger – and the motion of the finger determines the subsequent command. The touch module is pressure sensitive, so it works even if you’re wearing gloves – or if you have sweaty fingers.
The electrodes are so sensitive they can measure pressure down to 20 grams. With simple gestures back and forth, up and down or around, you will be able to control everything right from the ear cup. Want to turn on the active noise cancellation, answer a call, change song or turn up the volume, it’s just a matter of a single touch, and because the aluminum plate is so sensitive it doesn’t matter if you’re wearing gloves –it always works.
