The new True Wireless In-Ears B&O Beoplay E8 3.0 run for seven hours and 35 hours with the charging cradle. For comparison: the AirPods Pro only manage 4.5 hours or 24 hours with the case. There are other improvements compared to the previous E8 model.
Beyond the long runtime, the Beoplay E8 3.0 want to inspire with the latest technology, according to Slashgear . These include Bluetooth 5.1 with AAC and aptX support as well as four instead of two microphones for better call quality. However, noise suppression only works passively, i.e. due to the closed design of the in-ears, which keeps noise away from the user. In order for the ambient noise to be passed on to him, he can activate a transparency mode.
Materials like leather and aluminum
The charging case with USB-C connection is made of leather, the headphones are made of plastic and aluminum. Both the case and the in-ears are said to be recharged in two hours. Thanks to IP54 certification, the headphones are sweat-resistant and are therefore suitable for sporty use. The scope of delivery also includes silicone inserts in four sizes and a foam insert in medium size.
Upper class in-ears for 350 euros
Both iOS and Android are supported by the headphones. The features and the luxurious workmanship can be paid for by Bang & Olufsen: The new in-ears cost 350 euros. Compared to headphones like the Sony WF-1000XM3 , which offer active noise canceling and are currently available for around 220 euros, they will not have it easy despite the high quality materials. The in-ears will be launched in black in mid-February.
