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 wireless in-ear review: Premium styling and sound


The Beoplay E8 wireless from B&O Play is one of the best sounding and best designed pairs of wire-free earphones that we've tested, but it does lack

Attractive looks ; Carry case is portable and well designed ; Battery life is good for wire-free in-ears ; Dynamic and full sound ; Adjustable EQ within app

Not as snug-fitting as some ; Micro-USB charging port is inconvenient (where's the USB-C?) ; Touch-sensitive controls not perfect ; Expensive

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...

B&O Beoplay E8 review: Solid sound and stylish


The B&O E8 are among the most stylish wireless in-ears money can buy but they come with a hefty price tag

Beautiful design ; Intuitive, touch-based controls ; Impressive sound quality

Expensive ; Patchy pairing process

However, if you’re dead set on eliminating ALL the cables, then there’s nothing that quite matches the sonic and design characteristics of the B&O Beoplay E8. They’re great.

At S$429, these Bluetooth earphones are not cheap. They are, however, the best truly wireless options, in terms of its intuitive interface and audio quality.

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.

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...
