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 our 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 a new technology from B&O PLAY called Transparency Mode. Transparency Mode will let in the sound of your surroundings in a seamless fashion, so you can choose to focus on your music or let a bit of the real world in when you’re out in the city. You can select between four different levels of transparency in the app and easily activate your default mode with a quick tap of your earphones.
E8 is a breakthrough in size and performance from a technical point of view, but is also tuned with unprecedented precision and love for how music should be experienced. E8 is tuned by the same audio engineers that tune all other B&O PLAY and Bang & Olufsen products - and we’re sure you’ll feel (and hear) our love for music instantly.
E8 features the patented Bang & Olufsen ToneTouch via Beoplay App giving you full control over the characteristics of your sound. Think of it as an advanced equalizer that is super easy to use. In the app you can save presets for different sound scenarios.
In most everyday situations, using the intuitive touch control on E8 earphones is both safer and easier than taking your phone out of your pocket. And because you can use a combination of gestures on both sides, you’ll be amazed how many features you have at your fingertips.
