Bang & Olufsen launches its first pair of in-ear Bluetooth earbuds. $299 Beoplay E8 is company’s pricier luxury alternative to Apple’s $159 AirPods. Beoplay E8 resembles a piece of jewellery, but houses frontier engineering power. This gem-sized product features advanced computing power to make sure sound gets to you perfectly from your phone to your ears. Wirelessly. In terms of ergonomics, E8 is designed to fit comfortably on the go. You can customize your fit with different ear tips. It’s also splash and dust proof, so it’s both designed to be used outdoors and in the gym.
As with all Danish company’s products, E8 is crafted from authentic, lightweight and long lasting materials. The charging case is made from genuine leather and aluminium encircles the touch interface. Simple but gem-like, E8 is luxury on the go.
When fully charged, E8 will give you up to 4 hours of playtime at a moderate sound level for each charge. The case that doubles as a charging station on the go, will give you 2 additional charges. This gives you up to 12 hours of playtime when you’re on the go.
E8 features the patented Bang & Olufsen ToneTouch via Beoplay App giving you full control over the characteristics of your sound.
Even though E8 is packed with amazing specifications, the one thing you’ll probably appreciate the most is that it just simply sounds amazing.
