Bang $ Olufsen...
« on: November 19, 2008, 03:47:02 PM »
Hi

So there is this special out there....

A8 Earphone  =  R1000
Form 2 Headphones = R1000

Are they worth it ?

IMHO,i own a pair of A8's, dont bother,the cable is a problem (internal breakage)-rather invest in some sennheiser's etc,SQ is better. I must admit i bought the A8's based on it's looks alone, it's been shelved for the last 12 months.

Senn's, Grado, Beyer, AKG will all offer better performance IMO for similar and sometimes less money

Thanx guys....have 2 pairs of sennies currently and they are the best. I was just thinking that they might be good and since my wife has an I-pod and christmas is around the corner I could have solved that all difficult question of what to buy and not look cheap :)
