Beoplay E8: First True Wireless In-Ear presented by B&O Play

B&O Plays new in-ear comes without cable and offers besides touch gestures a so-called “transcendence mode”

Now also B&O Play shows where freedom should go: Small light headphones, which do not need a connecting cable between the two listeners, and to transport in a smart (leather) transport box to be recharged there. According to own data, the Beoplay E8 will work with a charge up to 4 hours, the charging case provides then again 8 (ie 2 × 4) hours of power. The E8 is operated by touch: the left and right handset respond in part to different gestures and understand several commands, such as accepting and rejecting calls, jumping back and forth between musical titles, or calling the relevant language assistants.

“The Beoplay E8 is the perfect companion for anyone who does not want to sacrifice the best sound and design for true wireless freedom. The in-ear headphone is a statement of style and technology, with discreet appearance and full, very clear sound, “said John Mollanger, CEO of B & O PLAY.

The so-called “Transparency Mode” can also be operated by means of gestures. A total of three different modes are available to allow outside noise to pass from very little to very much – especially in road traffic a very important feature. Anyone who has more touch surfaces can do this – and much more – via Beoplay App.
