This is a new model from famous company, and this time it’s finished in slightly different form-factor.

Yeah, words above say it all – new headphones won’t surprise you with some weird shape. In contrary, they are solve in accordance with latest fashion, so you can expect two separate earbuds without any interconnecting wires. Well, those are truly wireless, but we all have fears about losing one piece, right? 🙂 Samsung, Apple, and some other companies decided to this way, so it was matter of time until Bang & Olufsen will follow latest trend. New product is finished in dark colors (black and gray for now), but I have no doubt that we will see other versions as well. It’s good to see that there are no gloss surfaces, only matte plastic, which would look good in any situations. Another advantage of such material – better durability against scratches and scuffs. The only distinctive thing – golden circle, while even original logo is applied with matte paint. I hope that Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 will also come in full matte finish – such design should look cool in any color.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 and its Functions
As for the features, new product brings several curious things, but those are not something groundbreaking. For example, you can switch on special “Transparency Mode”. Some might guess from the name that this mode will use microphones in order to translate outer sounds. Such feature should come handy for those who are doing sports and listen to music. It’s always good to be aware of outer situation while riding your bicycle, right? As other similar wireless models, Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 will be packed with special carrying case, which will also serve as a charger.
Enough for walk?
Case, which was mentioned before, should come handy for prolonging playback time. Headphones are claimed to be able to work for 4 hours, and case will help you get additional 8 hours. Now divide all those numbers by 1.5 or even 2, and you will get real worktime. Well, sounds decent for such small buds. It should be interesting to check the sound quality in small case like this. Just like it wasn’t enough, case will be wrapped in leather and weight 45 g. By the way, all controls are touch-sensitive, so let’s hope and pray that there is special lock mode, so that you won’t jump to the next song with help of your shoulder.
New model should be available soon, and you can preorder it from official website for 299 EUR. Is it a reasonable price? Well, everything depends on the sound quality, because otherwise you can get a lot of interesting things for that money.
