Bang & Olufsen Launches Beoplay E8 Sport True Wireless Earphones

Bang & Olufsen has released its latest true wireless earphones for active types in the Beoplay E8 Sport.

The Beoplay E8 Sport true wireless (£300) definitely has the more energetic listener in its sights. Sporting (pun intended) IP57 certification which fully protects them from dust, sweat and water intrusion of up to 1 meter for 30 minutes is the first sign that these earphones mean business.

Naturally, the E8 Sport also shows off the kind of attention to detail that Bang & Olufsen are known for. The earphones are housed in a compact wireless charging case that uses materials such as rubber and textured silicone from the sports world, along with corrosion-resistant anodised aluminium that has been a Bang & Olufsen trademark for more than 50 years.

Additionally, the E8 Sport earphones themselves also rock anodised aluminium in a ring as well as a tastefully etched Bang & Olufsen logo. A nice touch is the ridged detail on the earpieces that will undoubtedly help you switch between tracks, take calls or activate Transparency Mode, with a simple tap or swipe of the finger, no matter how sweaty you get.

The Beoplay E8 Sport comes with five removable ear tips and three fins for the perfect fit. Boasting seven hours of play time from the earphones and an additional three charges from the case, that adds up to the E8 Sport being good for up to 30 hours of music. Bluetooth 5.1, AAC and aptX codecs ensure perfect connectivity and sound reproduction from all mobile devices.

VP of Product Management, Christoffer Poulsen, told StereoNET:

There are three elements that people are specifically looking for in a set of sports earphones: a waterproof and customisable design that brings comfort to long runs and workouts, playtime that lasts way beyond the finish line and, most importantly, excellent sound quality - everyone tells us that nothing is more important than powerful music that can motivate, push you further and perform at your best.

The Beoplay E8 Sport comes bundled with a wireless charging case, various ear tips and fins, and a USB-C charging cable. They are available in Oxygen Blue and Black for £300 from July 9th 2020.
