Bang & Olufsen is a name well known among elitist snobs with bank accounts bigger than their brains. The products are sexy and elegant, but often overpriced and under deliver in terms of performance. Hmm...this sounds like another company I know ducks to avoid flying tomatoes

For those who fall into this category, B&O A8 Earphones are for you. These sexy and functional earphones claim to deliver unsurpassed sound quality by matching the contour of the human ear, thus preventing sound leakage common to conventional earphones. Uh, yeah.

But as with all things that wear the proud B&O label, these earphones won't come cheap. A pair of A8's will set you back $160. Still, if you can afford a $600 iPhone you should have no problem ponying up another Ben Franklin or so. And you'll need to purchase the Belkin headphone adapter to mate these earphone with your iPhone.
