Beoplay E8 headphones are truly wireless with advanced Bluetooth 4.2 technology with DSP for sound tuning, equalization, and gain. The elegant splash and dust-resistant design of these compact and comfortable earbuds delivers superior sound quality. Simply grab these wireless headphones and go to enjoy the freedom of superior sound wherever and whenever you want it. Nothing comes between you and your music.
Power at Your Fingertips
Easily stay in control of your music and calls with the intuitive touch interface of these Bluetooth earphones. A simple tap lets you switch between tracks; answer, reject or end a call; adjust volume; or activate the convenient Transparency Mode when you wish to let in ambient noise and reconnect with your surroundings. The textured rubber and polymer housing of these earbuds resists wear while remaining smooth to the touch.
High Quality Streaming
Near Field Magnetic Induction (NFMI) audio streaming technology ensures greater connectivity for limited dropouts between the two earbuds. NFMI is the same digital wireless technology used in hearing instruments to transmit sound from one earphone to the other. A magnetic field around your head sends signals faster between the two earbuds to ensure superior sound without any loss of quality or drop-offs. Enjoy cutting-edge sound when listening to music or on calls.
Luxurious Leather Charging Case
Beoplay E8 wireless headphones travel in style with a luxurious leather carrying case that doubles as an on-the-go charger. Snap your earbuds securely into this genuine leather case, and then grab the woven fabric strap for convenient transport. With up to 12 hours of playtime (four hours for the initial charge followed by two portable four-hour charges) you can keep the music flowing and the calls coming all day or night.
Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound
With the Beoplay E8 in-ear headphones, there’s no need to compromise sound for wireless convenience. These small earbuds are packed with big Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound to deliver a pristine and authentic listening experience as tuned by the acclaimed sound engineers at Bang & Olufsen.
Designed to look and feel as good as they sound, these wireless Bluetooth earbuds are topped with high-performance Comply Sport memory foam and silicone ear tips in varying sizes for a secure fit, regardless of the shape and size of your ears. The rugged and breathable open cell structure on the tips of these earbuds provides a near-perfect grip in the ear canal for all-day comfort that stays in place.
Up to 12 Hours of Playtime
Experience a full day (or night) of music and calls wherever you roam with the powerful battery of these cutting-edge wireless headphones. Just 20 minutes of charging time gives you an hour of playtime and a full charge delivers up to four hours. When the initial charge is used up, you can still enjoy another eight hours of power with two additional charges from the on-the-go charging case.
Customize Your Sound
Whether you’re commuting, working, playing or relaxing, you can adjust the sound profile of your earbuds to fit your activity using ToneTouch on the Bang & Olufsen app. Another handy feature of the app is the ability to customize the Transparency Mode function on your headphones by choosing between four levels of transparency to suit your needs.

Anyway, the headphones look and feel great. The charging case is very nice, and the buds fit into their slots with any of the tips attached. Mine came with FIVE pairs of tips - XS, S, M and L silicone tips, plus M "comply" memory foam tips. I find the memory foam tips to be most comfortable, and I can easily wear them as long as I'd like without discomfort.
First impression of audio was poor. Upon initial pairing, sound quality was VERY compressed and bad sounding. VERY bad. Marketing materials for the E8s say that they support AAC codec, which is Apple's choice for bluetooth audio transmission - so I should be getting great quality sound on my iPhone, but I wasn't. Furthermore, the volume wouldn't go up very high. I tried pairing the buds to my Macbook instead, and although I got better volume, the sound quality wasn't much better.
I did some research and determined that Macs do not have the AAC bluetooth audio codec enabled by default, but it can be switched on easily. So I enabled it and re-paired the earbuds. Now the sound quality is excellent and volume is great. After that, I "forgot" the buds on my phone and re-paired them. Using the Mac console app with my iphone connected, I was able to see that the buds were now using the AAC audio codec, (whereas before they were using the old low-quality SBC codec) and sound quality and volume was now excellent.
In other words, my recommendation is to unpair and repair the earbuds after first setting them up; otherwise they may stay locked on low-quality SBC profile. Once the buds are on AAC codec, they sound really great. Audio is balanced and bass is very clean and smooth. I found highs to be a tad shrill, but I was able to use the B&O app to bump the EQ a little into the "warm" area to correct for that. Like airpods, you get battery level displayed on your iPhone, as well as control over the volume using your Apple Watch's crown, if you have one. One handy feature is that your phone and the B&O app can connect to and change settings on the buds even if they are paired to another device. For example if you are listening to music from your macbook and you want to change the buds' EQ, you can open your phone and do that without interrupting anything.
B&O advertises "transparency mode", "which quickly and safely reconnects you with ambient noises around you". I was very disappointed with this feature. I expected it to use the onboard microphones to listen to the environment and mix some of that sound in with my bluetooth audio. But that is NOT what it does. You get 3 modes you can choose. Mode 1 completely shuts off the bluetooth audio and plays the audio from the mics. Audio quality is very poor and compressed. It doesn't even PAUSE your music. It mutes it. Modes 2 and 3 simply lower the volume of the bluetooth audio. They don't mix in any ambient sound themselves. It's no different than just turning the volume down yourself. The buds physically isolate external sound very well, so this results in your music being quieter but still being unable to hear ambient sound.
The only other issue I've had with the buds is periodic dropouts of the left earbud. The right bud is the "master" bud, which talks to your phone via bluetooth, and the left bud is the "slave", which, according to B&O's marketing, "are crafted with Near Field Magnetic Induction (NFMI), an innovative audio streaming technology used in hearing aids that ensures zero dropouts between the two earbuds.". However, occasionally the left earbud will drop out for a fraction of a second. Sometimes I can go for 10-20 minutes without a single dropout, sometimes I get 3-5 in a single song. I posted about the bluetooth issues on reddit, and another E8 owner came forward with the exact same issues, including the slave dropouts. It seems like the magnetic connection is very "directional". If you remove the master earbud, the slave immediately cuts out, and the master keeps playing in your hand, making it SEEM like they automatically paused or shut off (like airpods), but they didn't.
I emailed B&O, explaining that the left (slave) earbud, which communicates with the master via magnetic field induction, would sometimes cut out. The right earbud (master) worked fine. I asked if a firmware update was in the works to fix this, or if there were any known fixes. I got a thoughtless cookie-cutter response from B&O telling me that they "can't tell me" anything about firmware updates, and the problem was probably with the bluetooth drivers or antenna on my laptop, and that I should consider getting an external bluetooth DAC instead. Ignoring the fact that it's obvious to anyone with a brain stem that the bluetooth transmission is not the issue. He offered to let me "send them in" and "if they are able to confirm the issue", they would repair them for me. What a joke.
Today I paired the E8s to my new iPhone X. Upon starting the Beoplay app, I was informed that there is a new firmware update available. I installed it. Transparency mode is now fixed, and works as advertised. You can choose between "completely mutes music and lets outside microphone audio in", "lowers music to 25% and lets outside microphone audio in", and "lowers music to 50% and lets outside microphone audio in". This makes sense and works well for me. I've raised the rating to 4 stars. Also, perhaps anecdotally, I don't get dropouts of the left earbud nearly as often as I did when the pair was new.
I haven't had a SINGLE dropout of the left earbud since the firmware update. I don't know if they increased the transmit power of the NMFI or what, but now these earbuds are everything I had hoped! Highly recommended. Just update the firmware straight away. It'll prompt you in the app.
- Super light and super comfy. (I run 6-8 miles a few days a week and have zero problems with them staying in my ears)
- Sound quality + equalizer are amazing.
- Battery life is fantastic.
- Look is sleek & smooth
- Connectivity issues with left ear does happen at times but B&O is constantly updating their firmware so I’ve noticed with each update the overall performance gets better with these
so i emailed b&o customer support as they supposedly have a 2 year warranty. they replied promptly and asked me to take pictures and send them the serial number. i did this and received another prompt reply that said i had damaged them and thus they were not covered. let me be explicitly clear here: I HAVE NEVER MISUSED/ABUSED THESE EARPHONES.
so i did a little digging online and apparently this is a fairly common issue and others are reporting the same response. in some cases it looks like B&O asked people to send theirs in for physical inspection but were asked to send them to hong kong and then they've waited weeks for a response or never got a response.
these earbuds sound great, the best of many that I've tried. however, they simply do not last and for the price B&Os customer service and warranty assistance is exceptionally poor. while these earbuds do indeed sound great and fit well i have concluded that they are so poorly made that i cannot endorse them.
Top reviews from other countries
+ Die B&O haben ein top Design. Kein lästiges Kabel, keine mechanischen Knöpfe, gute Anpassung an die Ohren. Sie sind deutlich dezenter als andere Kopfhörer. Sie sitzen sicher, angenehm und gut.
+ Der Klang ist der beste, den ich bei In-Ear-Kopfhörern bisher gehört habe. Die persönliche Soundpräferenz lässt sich mit der App einfach und gut einstellen. Dann sehr räumlich, klar, dynamisch und genug Bass. Perfekt.
+ Die Aufbewahrungs- und Lagebox ist chic, stabil und kompakt.
Dennoch bin ich noch nicht 100% überzeugt.
- Die erstmalige Verbindung hat erst nach einigem Hin und Her geklappt. Kein Vergleich zu den Powerbeats oder Airpods, wo es sofort einfach funktioniert. Der Wechsel von einem Gerät zum anderen ist ebenfalls etwas haklig. Man kann nicht einfach am neuen Gerät verbinden, sondern muss die Verbindung am alten Gerät erst trennen
- Ab und zu setzt der linke Kopfhörer kurz aus (Verbindungssynchronisation?). Das ist nicht schlimm, aber auch nicht gerade elegant gelöst
- DIe Kopfhörer haben sich mehreinfach einfach ausgeschaltet und ließen sich nicht einfach so wieder aktivieren. Ich musste sie erst in der Aufbewahrungsbox „resetten“
- Wenn man die Schaumaufsätze für die Ohrstöpsel nutzt - was klanglich absolut empfehlenswert ist - dann schnappen die Kopfhörer in der Hülle nicht mehr magnetisch ein, sondern man muss sie fest reindrücken, damit sie wirklich laden. Offenbar sind die Aufsätze für die Hülle etwas zu groß? Wurde das vorher nicht ausprobiert?
- Die Anleitung ist solala. Wichtige Informationen muss man in den FAQ suchen
- Vielleicht etwas kleinlich, aber die Hülle nutzt noch den 10 Jahre alten Micro-USB-Stecker. Sorry, aber dieser schreckliche Stecker bei einem 300€-Produkt... USB-C sollte hier Standard sein (Die Airpods kosten die Hälfte und nutzen Lightning)
Insgesamt bleibt es weiterhin schwer, perfekte kompakte Kopfhörer zu finden. Vieles hat B&O hier richtig angesetzt, aber dann leider nicht bis ins Detail durchdacht und umgesetzt.
Ich werde die Kopfhörer wahrscheinlich behalten - wegen der hervorragenden Klangs und der perfekten Reisegröße. Ich hoffe, dass B&O an Firmware und Software noch Verbesserungen vornimmt. Update der Rezension dann nach einigen Monaten.
I have had these about a month now and am really pleased with them. Expensive but well worth it in my view. Really comfortable. Great charging case that is a practical size and looks and feels lovely. I have paired these with an iPhone 8 and an iPad Pro and have had none of the connectivity drop out some people have mentioned. The sound quality is incredible and the touch controls are pretty intuitive, if a tad sensitive.
Sound leakage is almost zero. I have sat listening to music at high volume and my partner has not been able to hear a thing. Makes me feel far less self conscious watching movies on the train or listening to “uncool” tunes sat next to a total stranger.
Considering how tiny and low key these ear buds are, it’s amazing that so much sound can emerge from them!
Das neu gelieferte Produkt erlitt beim ersten Laden jedoch einen Kurzschluss (siehe Bilder). Wäre ich nicht zuhause gewesen und hätte den massiven Gestank und Qualm nicht bemerkt, wäre es zu einem Brand gekommen.
Das Produkt ist brandgefährlich und nicht mehr zu empfehlen!
Mais les amis, il faut bien les mettre dans les oreilles vos écouteurs, car là le son est juste exceptionnel des basses de folie et des aigus ultra pur.
Vraiment très bon produit !!!
Seul Bémol pour amazone du coup.
C’est bien d’accepter les retours et de rembourser les insatisfaits mais c’est pas pour ça qu’il faut les revendre à d’autre qui payent le prix fort, avec des traces de doigts, des films protecteurs en moins et je suppose des extraits de serumen de l’ancien acheteur.
Zéro pointé pour amazon à qui j’achète beaucoup.....
