 Primarily for comfort. There's a hot spot at the top of my head with the stock HB for me with extended use. This is resolved with the CF HB. There are aftermarket HB mods sold online. This is the only official product from Audeze for those with comfort concerns. http://tinyurl.com/jtze7ws
 WA8 does not have charging mechanism inside. The included external charger is required. The battery pack is an option for those who has no access to a wall outlet when WA8 needs to recharge. It is extremely rare that there would not be a power outlet anywhere someone travels to. Even airplanes have AC outlets in the seats!
 Nearly 4 hrs. of continuous music playtime is a long time. That's half the work day in the U.S. (8 hrs. shift). We went with fast charging rather than longer battery life. Take a break when the battery is drained.... WA8 can be used while charging.  The sound quality was our main focus. If squeezing one additional hour of use, BUT the sound would sacrifice it is NOT worth it to us.

For those who want to use WA8 with external battery pack. Here's a link to one we've tested and liked. You can play WA8 off the battery pack or recharge WA8.   https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0116BX968/  
 When fully charged (LED on charger turns GREEN), WA8 Eclipse should play continuously a little under 4 hrs. Keep in mind that WA8 operates in Class A and all-tube design (not hybrid). The sound you get is similar to a desktop amplifier, not a compromised sound like other small battery amps. WA8 can operate with external battery pack.

 Congrats! Pls. keep us posted with your listening impressions after the initial break-in period (50–100hrs). We would love to see a pic or two as well.
