SOUND CHECK: BEO­PLAY H8I WIRE­LESS HEAD­PHONES

For de­sign, au­dio clar­ity and all-round con­ve­nience, B&O Play wire­less head­phones from Bang & Olufsen are hard to beat. The soft brown cowhide leather head­phones of the H8i slip on com­fort­ably and I can’t hear a col­league talk­ing on the phone nearby as I open my Ap­ple Mu­sic app. Two but­tons on the grey-sil­ver alu­minium ex­te­rior con­trol the vol­ume and a key third in the mid­dle serves as the Blue­tooth con­nec­tion, pause func­tion and you dou­ble tap it to change tracks; ide­ally the vol­umes would be next to each other, but I soon got the hang of it. The neat­est touch is when you take the head­phones off the mu­sic stops, and it restarts when you pop them back on, thanks to a prox­im­ity sen­sor. The crys­tal clear mu­sic and no wire has­sles are es­pe­cially con­ve­nient in the gym, and most will find it suit­able for the on-the-go dig­i­tal age. The H9i comes with a slim­mer ear cush­ion de­sign. Avail­able from Har­vey Ni­chols.

Priced: Dhs1,699 for the H8i, Dhs2,199 for the H9i
