Pros:Clear, true sound; comfortable, snug fit.
Cons:Pricey, but worth every penny.
The Bottom Line: I highly recommend them, for their clear, true sound, and comfortable sturdy fit. Perfect for the jogger and exercise buff.
I have had my Bang & Olufsen A8's for about a month now, and I am thrilled with their sound, which is clear, resonant and true. While some have complained about the bass, I listen to mostly "classical" music on my iPod, and the bass translates into what I would hear and "feel" in a concert hall. Also, I am a jogger, and they fit comfortably and snuggly whenever I am exercising. A couple of caveats for first time users, however:
Recommend this product?
1) It takes a couple of weeks for the sound to "break in." It gets better and better,the more you use them. I'm not quite sure why this is true, not being an audiophile; but they have definitely improved over time.
2) Be sure to fit them properly to your ear. It took me several days of playing with them to get them to lodge right up against the opening of the ear canal, so that I could get the best sound. In particular, I've found that clamping the over-the-ear holders down tight against the back of my ears holds the earphone in and down where I get the most sound.
Yes, they are pricey. But I tried 5 sets of other name-brand earphones (both less and more expensive), before I purchased these. They definitely take the cake!
