_
"Sound quality on a meter perhaps not as high as the Schure in-ear monitors with noise cancelling I used to wear, but the increased comfort and stay in place design well worth the money."

Design

Design:
"Save your money, you are paying for the design, and I'd argue even that isn't that good on these."
_
"Great for your commute or hanging around a book store, but the design versus function issue is an abysmal failure its beauty."
_
"They are not designed well for intended use."
_
"They're also comfortable and stay in the ear because of the hook shaped design."
_
"I actually have scars inside my ears..from them cutting me while wearing them-I love the design- this is the reason you would ask if I hated them so much- they are great at positioning pieces in my ear's thus not falling out in a run, or active sport, since they curl around the out side of ear its self."
_
"design and sound is very Nice!"
_
"The design is great since they go over the ear, so they won't slip out of your ears like with earbuds."
_
"Excellent design!"

Fit

Fit:
"The main drawback is the fit."
_
"for the price for these headphones and for Bang and Olufsen to put these out there after the quality of there other products is so great, I wasn't satisfied at all with the sound and of course the fit of these headphones, doesn't stay in place and you've got to jam them in your ear cavity to get a good fit and then it's totally uncomfortable, my workout routine in which I used them for was disturbed greatly, until BANG AND OLUFSEN gets there act together in the headphones dept., I won't be buying from them."
_
"if i am in a noisy place, it does not fit well enough to block it."
_
"while the sound is awesome, the ear pieces do not fit well into my small ears."
_
"They do not fit well around or inside the ear like the package demonstrates."
_
"Same great sound and comfortable fit."
_
"The sound and fit are great!"
_
"These ear buds fit very well very light."
_
"Stylish and beautiful and so lightweight you almost forget you're wearing them, they clip and hold behind the ears (the clips are adjustable in almost every direction till you get a perfect fit).They come with a clip to hook onto your clothing as well as a carry pouch."
_
"Fit:The speaker which should fit inside on your ear is large and perfectly round."

Music

Music:
"I was not able to hear the music unless I held the product in my ears...not an ideal situation for exercising."
_
"if i am listening to really good music at home, it will block out the sound of my housemates loud tv in another room."
_
"There are 3 buttons; the topmost one increases volume as well as takes a photo if your camera is open, the middle one plays pauses music as well as accepts calls on your phone."
_
"I wouldn't call myself an audiophile,, but I think the sound is great for the music I listen to (primarily rock e. g Rolling Stones, Jazz - John Coltrane, Pop - Mumford and Sons)."
_
"Once you have them in the correct position, you will enjoy your music for hours without any discomfort issue."
_
"The best way to showcase this is to listen to live music on these things."

Price

Price:
"Don't try to compare them to some serious headphones though (say, a Koss PortaPro or the SportaPro, or worse, a Grado SR-60) because you'll begin to question your sanity about spending so much money on such a mediocre earphone."
_
"Overall, I definitely would not recommend these for the money; unless you want something with great sound and intend on just sitting there listening and not moving around."
_
"If you enjoy good sound response, comfort, and clarity - buy, if you like rap bass and could care less about how clear and lifelike something sounds, you are better off saving your money and buying something else, because you won't be happy."
_
"Only problem is to find them at a discounted price."
_
"Beware of fakes, stay away from cheap offers! "
_
"The only downside...the price, BUT worth every penny."
_
"They sound good but for price VS my $30 pair not worth it."
_
"The B&O; A8s are a bit pricey, but the sound and comfort make you forget the price."
_
"Why would B&O; build such a fantastic looking frame and surround them with such cheap parts?"
_
"Sound quality on a meter perhaps not as high as the Schure in-ear monitors with noise cancelling I used to wear, but the increased comfort and stay in place design well worth the money."
_
"Comfort:They're hard and made from some cheap plastic."

Quality

Quality:
"One thing I regret is the quality of the same model sold in the duty free market in the Korean airport was better than this."
_
"for the price for these headphones and for Bang and Olufsen to put these out there after the quality of there other products is so great, I wasn't satisfied at all with the sound and of course the fit of these headphones, doesn't stay in place and you've got to jam them in your ear cavity to get a good fit and then it's totally uncomfortable, my workout routine in which I used them for was disturbed greatly, until BANG AND OLUFSEN gets there act together in the headphones dept., I won't be buying from them."
_
"Oh and I neglected to mention the sound quality is great too!"
_
"The sound quality is clear and crisp although the bass is weak."
_
"I know the bass isn't as good as some, but the quality and craftmanship are just out of this world!"
_
"Otherwise, the adjustablility of the earphones is impressive, but the quality is only a shade better than regular apple earphones."
_
"Great quality."
_
"Oh and I neglected to mention the sound quality is great too!"
_
"Sound quality is excellent, bass is deep and booming and treble sounds are clear and crisp, and while not noise cancelling, they drown out most aircraft or train noise."
_
"Such a comfortable fit, no sore ears at all and quality of sound is great."

_
"Oh and I neglected to mention the sound quality is great too!"
_
"but.. weak base sound."
_
"I switched to Sennheiser PX 100 headphones which avoided the in-the-ear discomfort, trading off for a little less portability-the sound still great for the money-about $40 bucks when I bought them."
_
"I've also found they do not sound great (primarily because they have to face an odd way so I do not get proper alignment of the speaker into my ear)."
_
"Although not an audiophile, and comfort being my first priority, the sound is exceptional."
_
"They sound good but for price VS my $30 pair not worth it."
_
"These Bang and Olufsen earphones have a wonderful sound."
_
"Same great sound and comfortable fit."
_
"The sound and fit are great!"
_
"Great sound but not worth the cost for CONSISTENTLY breaking down."
