My wireless earphone history is spotty. Some products fell out. Others just weren’t worth the price. My friends joked that my obsession with wireless earphones had become a little alarming. That’s what happens when you can’t find a decent product. Then Beoplay E8 Sport True Wireless Earphones came into my life.
What’s not to love?
It takes a lot to get my bum off the couch, but the opportunity to forget the world during an exhausting run is a big motivator – just as long as I can crank up the tunes. Once upon a time, that seemed impossible until the awesome Bang & Olufsen’s team of world-leading audio engineers came up with the Beoplay E8 Sport, earphones that truly deliver high-performance audio.
Weather won’t dampen my run thanks to these waterproof wireless earphones that are lightweight and comfy while delivering powerful sound that takes my mind off inclement weather. Wearing an essential product that is engineered with a battery that won’t let me down is important to me and it’s probably important to you, too. I get around 7 hours of continuous play time on a single charge (or up to 30 hours via the charging case).
They fit like a dream and keep me safe
My ears aren’t particularly sensitive to devices but discomfort was a major factor for me when I felt as though I was auditioning every earbud on the market. But since Beoplay E8 Sport earphones are specifically designed for athletes like me, I can run longer, harder and more comfortably once these ergonomically shaped buds, customised courtesy of the silicone ear tips and soft fins, are inserted and they never fall out!
Because Beoplay E8 Sport earphones give me the ability to set my own equaliser preferences using BeoSonic, a feature of the Bang & Olufsen app, once I need to pay more attention to my surroundings because I’m running in traffic or at night, I can take advantage of Transparency Mode that puts me in touch with the world around me so I stay safe and hear every word of conversation should I take or make a call.
Cleanable, colorful and cordless
I’ve got a soft spot in my soul for the color blue, so snagging these Beoplay E8 Sport earphones in Oxygen Blue was icing on the cake. While I’m on the subject of blue, Bluetooth 5.1 has proven to be a superior connection, surpassing the 5.0 version, using less energy and offering more benefits, too. Having added a Qi-enabled charging pad to my shopping cart, I elevated seamless wireless charging to new heights.
Cleaning? No brainer; I just take them off, rinse them under running water and I’m up for my next run. Yes, I sweat, but these babies are IP57 certified sweat-resistant so no worries. And if I forget to put them back into their case after cleaning them up, I know that a 20-minute recharge is all I need to power them back up fast.
