The tiny E8 earbuds are comfortable and full of the quality one expects from B&O Play, but none of this comes cheaply.

Tiny, attractive design ; Natural, balanced sound ; High-quality build and materials ; Transparency mode increases safety ; Tight, comfortable fit

B&O Play Beoplay E8


The wire-free B&O Play Beoplay E8 earphones deliver high-quality Bluetooth audio and an app that allows you to set your EQ preferences, but feel a bit overpriced.

Powerful audio performance with deep bass and crisp highs. App features adjustable EQ. Very secure in-ear fit. Excellent mic clarity.

Expensive. Transparency mode can be confusing before adjustments are made.

Sonically, the Beoplay E8 is capable of many sound signatures, but its baseline will please plenty of listeners. Functionally, the design fits securely and is easy to use. Generally speaking, this is a very good pair of earphones, but there is the...

B&O Beoplay E8 true wireless earphones review: The best in class comes at a steep price


They may be expensive, but their sound is worth every penny.

Exceptional sound quality, especially for Bluetooth ; Variable audio transparency settings ; Easy to use sound profiles and the ability to create your own ; Sleek, understated design ; Small battery case that’s easy to pocket ; Solid build quality

Expensive ; Design may not fit all ears ; Controls occasionally unresponsive due to environmental conditions

While they rate amongst the most expensive true wireless headphones we’ve tested, the B&O Beoplay E8 are without a doubt, the best sounding and most luxurious-feeling headphones that we’ve tested. If you can afford them, you’ll most likely be very...

B&O Beoplay E8 wireless earphones review


Exceptional audio meets intuitive design

Good audio quality ; Exceptional design ; Easy to setup

Can feel a bit snug

The Beoplay E8 is a tiny yet impressive piece of audio tech. While the four-hour battery life can be a bit frustrating for all-day users, it’s certainly not something we’d hold against the E8. The touch controls are responsive, and we just can’t get...
