It’s really hard to beat Bang & Olufsen in the style, let alone, sound game. While Apple presides over the cordless earphones arena with its innovative yet goofy AirPods, with news of a dramatic upgrade to make it better, there’s the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 — the brand’s first fully wireless earphones already making a hit in the audio performance department.
As the tech sphere relentlessly thinks about the value of aesthetics in engineering, B&O is no different. Solid sound and fine design are equal to this Danish company, often showing off with an uncanny indulgence in minimalism and high-end materials wrapped around the art and science of sound.
Each earbud is attuned with a 5.7mm electro-dynamic audio driver, NFMI (Near Field Magnetic Induction) technology and is Bluetooth 4.2-enabled with Digital Sound Processing that allows for dynamic sound tuning. Charging the leather case is how you’ll charge the splash and dust resistant earphones. After that, sit back, or move about, and enjoy up to four hours of music.
Previously only available in two-toned black and charcoal sand, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 now comes in all-white and all-black renditions. The company draws inspiration from the unfussy and timeless nature of monochrome, thinking of it less than just a trend and more of “a lifestyle embodied by fashion, art, design or photography aficionados.”
These first two limited-edition colours of the Beoplay E8 is part of the Special Edition Collection. It hopes to celebrate one-of-a-kind movements. A new colour will be dedicated each year to the different communities around the world, looking for experiences of beauty.
No need to bolster its beauty here, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 wireless in-earphones are one of the prettiest pairs we’ve ever come across. It also delivers best-in-class sound in a size that truly boggles the mind.
