Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 2 : Better than its competitors by miles

The phasing noise cancellation feature is great as well. The case is high quality and really easy to carry. Fits into the small pockets in most jeans.

They’re beautiful and functional. They were expensive but for me exactly what i hoped for.

I had the opportunity to test the original beoplay e8 earbuds when they first came out, and this is the new 2. As far as the earbuds themselves are concerned nothing appears to have changed, and that is a good thing because they are comfortable to wear for hours and hours, and the sound quality they produce is simply stunning. I have tested many other brands of earbuds, but the b&o e8’s just blow the competition out of the water. Providing you are listening to quality high bitrate digital recordings, you will hear sounds you have never experienced before. Bass is excellent, but not overpowering, and treble and midrange sound superb. The difference between the original e8’s and this new 2. The new rechargeable case can hold 4 complete charges, whereas the original only held 3. Each charge is sufficient to power the earbuds for between 3 and 4 hours, dependant on volume.

At first it seemed to me that these headphones were a contradiction in terms. If you want true very-high-fidelity sound reproduction, my past experience told me you’d use ‘proper’ headphones, not in-ear ones- and yet here are bang & olufsen, undoubtedly one of the best-sounding (if not *the* best) audio manufacturers in the world, producing diddy little in-ear headphones at a size where decent audio reproduction ought to be unviable. The headline result, though, is that despite being tiny, these things deserve to carry the bang & olufsen logo- they sound absolutely stunning. It’s hard to believe that something this small could sound so good. Unlike other in-ear headphones i’ve tried in the past, where to make them sound good you have to squeeze them very tightly into the right spot in your ear, it’s very easy to listen to these casually and still enjoy the immersive and crystal clear sound. Judging them on sound quality alone, it’s undoubtedly five out of five, maybe six out of five, maybe seven. The premium quality doesn’t just stop at how they sound though- there are a lot of other impressive details. The charging case, compact enough to slide into your pocket very easily, is an elegant bit of design that disguises the fact it’s got its own built-in battery, so you can charge from the charging case even if the charging case isn’t plugged in. Stunningly convenient, and very smart-looking too. The charging case even has a cushioned closing mechanism on its lid- very posh indeed- and even has its own built-in qi charging facility, so if you use a qi charging pad for your phone, you can also use it for this case.

Good but as commonly stated there are times where the connection drops off momentarily, also i can’t seem to pair it with multiple devices (eg my laptop and iphone). That said the noise cancellation is the main reason why i got this, and it works very well. The battery life is also outstanding.

Much much better than bose or sony. They are small light and very comfortable, the bose were not nice to wear after an hour or 2, but these are very good, could keep them in for hours. Sound quality is rich and clear. The bass isnt punchy, but clear and staged at each bass level, you can clearly make out the hidden instruments that cant with the bose sport free or sonys. Touch sensitivity for volume or track movement is great, responsive. Left and right buds stay connected, but transmitting device has to be in sight line for signal, front pocket, not the back, i found this to be the same with bose sport free as well. There is lag on all wireless buds if you are using with tv, laptop etc. Works 100% with spotify and youtube on the mobile. Less lag than others on video apps such as mx player or vlc player. What i noticed between these and the bose is the case holds the battery charge, where as the bose and sony deteriate after a few days. The case is small, light and good build quality. Usb type c and wireless charging. 3 led to indicate case charge level. App is good, can choose mood setting, a type of equaliser.

If you’re going to spend this much on a pair of earphones, you need to feel you’re getting what you paid for. And you do, from the luxury packaging to the product itself to the sound they make in your ears. These are high end and every detail tells you that. It’s tiny and perfect and weighs almost nothing. My preference would have been for a more sustainable material than animal skin, but most people will love the soft feel of it. I really like that this version 2. 0 of the e8 has not only the much better usb-c charging connector but qi wireless charging too. Total convenience and bang up to date. When you put the earbuds in the case an orange led pulses softly to tell you they’re charging.

I had very high expectations for these, given the premium price. Sadly they disappoint in several key areas. Build quality==========the build quality is very good, and the charging case (which charges via usb-c, or via a qi enabled charging pad – not supplied) has a premium feel. Sadly this is where the highlights end, it’s mostly ‘meh’ from here on. Sound quality===========for something that promises the ultimate in sound quality, i expect proper hd bluetooth codec, not ancient sbc/aac standard definition, just because iphones are stuck in the dark ages in this regard, it’s no excuse to leave other sources at the same antiquated state, aptx hd, and. Or ldac is a minimum requirement these days, as bitrate is still a hugely important part of audio and modern codecs deliver 3x the bitrate. (aac: 250 kbps sbc: 328 kbps aptx: 352 kbps aptx hd: 576 kbps ldac: 990 kbps). Beyond the disappointment of very basic codec support, the audio performance of the units are otherwise good, a nice soundstage, good stereo reproduction, and good bass considering the size of the units, but i kept feeling it could have been so much better with better codec support. Design=====i did like the design for the most part and they got some things right that so many others fail at (even simple things like easy to read l/r lettering).
