B&O Beoplay E8

 

B&O Beoplay E8 review: The most gorgeous true wireless earphones available – and they sound great too. The AirPods have some serious competition.

Good sound ; Lovely design and build ; Good fit (if fiddly) ; Stable connection ; Decent battery life

Buggy app (optional) ; Expensive

B&O Play Beoplay E8 hands-on review

 

The tiny E8 earbuds are comfortable and full of the quality one expects from B&O Play, but none of this comes cheaply.

Tiny, attractive design ; Natural, balanced sound ; High-quality build and materials ; Transparency mode increases safety ; Tight, comfortable fit

Expensive ; Middling battery life

B&O Play Beoplay E8 wireless earbuds review

 

At $300, the E8s sound excellent but suffer from unacceptable dropouts and other bugs.

Premium, unobtrusive design ; Nice carrying case ; Comply foam ear tips in the box ; No audio delay when watching videos

Too many dropouts to justify high price ; Annoying bug shifts music balance to left earbud ; Case uses MicroUSB ; Average battery life ; Frustrating / annoying firmware update system

For $300, you shouldn’t have to deal with audio interruptions

B&O Play Beoplay E8

 

The wire-free B&O Play Beoplay E8 earphones deliver high-quality Bluetooth audio and an app that allows you to set your EQ preferences, but feel a bit overpriced.

Powerful audio performance with deep bass and crisp highs. App features adjustable EQ. Very secure in-ear fit. Excellent mic clarity.

Expensive. Transparency mode can be confusing before adjustments are made.

Sonically, the Beoplay E8 is capable of many sound signatures, but its baseline will please plenty of listeners. Functionally, the design fits securely and is easy to use. Generally speaking, this is a very good pair of earphones, but there is the...

B&O Beoplay E8 wireless earphones review

 

Exceptional audio meets intuitive design

Good audio quality ; Exceptional design ; Easy to setup

Can feel a bit snug

The Beoplay E8 is a tiny yet impressive piece of audio tech. While the four-hour battery life can be a bit frustrating for all-day users, it’s certainly not something we’d hold against the E8. The touch controls are responsive, and we just can’t get...

The premium B&O Beoplay E8 are the latest in the line of increasingly popular truly wireless earphones. B&O compares them to a piece of jewellery, and says their 'gem-like' and 'elegant looks' add 'a touch of luxury' to your listening. The company also...

Beoplay E8 im Test: Das sind die ersten True-Wireless-Kopfhörer von Bang & Olufsen

 

Der Markt der sogenannten True-Wireless-Ohrhörer boomt. Nun liefert auch Bang & Olufsen ein eigenes Modell und setzt sich, soviel sei vorweggenommen, an die Spitze aller bisherigen Testkandidaten.

B&O Play Beoplay E8

 

Bang & Olufsen spiller som alltid fremragende.

Beoplay E8 har mange av de samme styrkene og svakhetene som Beoplay H5. Lydkvaliteten feiler det ingenting, og de kan spille både høyt, dypt og detaljert. Ja, de har nok den beste lyden i en helt trådløs ørepropp. Dessverre går designen litt i klinsj...

B&O Beoplay E8 im Test: Schlicht und einfach grandios | Mac Life

 

Der Markt der sogenannten True-Wireless-Ohrhörer (also Kopf- bzw. Ohrhörer, die ohne jegliche Kabel auskommen) boomt – nicht zuletzt, weil Apple die Klinkenbuchse am iPhone 7 im vergangenen Jahr ersatzlos gestrichen hat. Nun liefert auch der dänische...

Ljud & Bild Bäst i test

Expert review by : Mikael Hansen (ljudochbild.se)

Imponerande ljud i miniformat

 

Bang & Olufsen låter utmärkt, som alltid.

Beoplay E8 har en övertygande och detaljerad ljudbild. Även om de sticker ut långt är både propparna och fodralet snyggt gjorda.

Passformen är inte den bästa och batteritiden är lite kort.
