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
