Think twice before considering

Pros:Great design, visually and functionally; earphone stays in your ear; great sound quality

Cons:Poor build quality, demonstrated repeatedly in my case; poor customer service, high price

I am on my 4th, yes, FOURTH, pair of Bang & Olufsen A8 earphones: the sound quality is great, the design itself is great, the build quality, however, is poor. Each pair I have had has suffered from the exact same problem: the treble in one earphone begins to diminish so that the sound is muffled and, ultimately, unbalanced. Each time, I brought the pair back in to the Bang & Olufsen store in San Francisco, only to be told that the six month warranty had expired. They do, however, give you half off on the price of a new pair when exchanging a pair past warranty.... which is what I did... three times. Now that my fourth pair is experiencing the very same problem (treble in the left earphone is diminished), I can no longer excuse the fact that, even if it is my use that is causing the problem, the quality of the product should be much greater for the price point.
