Bang & Olufsen has announced its next-generation Beoplay E8 true wireless earphones.

The new Beoplay E8 3rd Generation is re-engineered to bring forward significant improvements. The Bang & Olufsen engineers have used 3D-modelling and consumer testing to make sure that Beoplay E8 fits a larger variety of ear shapes and sizes. The size of each earphone has been reduced by 17 percent, weighing only 5,8 grams per piece, and the more compact size and optimised design allows Beoplay E8 to fit smaller ears and is more comfortable and natural to wear.

35 Hours Of Play Time

With up to 35 hours of playtime, Bang & Olufsen is optimising battery life in Beoplay E8 with 119 percent compared to the previous model. The earphones have up to seven hours of continuous playtime and four full charges built into the premium leather wireless charging case. This means that many users can go up to several weeks before charging the case, which is done in two hours.

More Microphones

Bang & Olufsen has also doubled the number of microphones from two to four to achieve a beam forming technology directed towards the mouth. This makes sure that the voice is delivered while suppressing ambient noise from the surroundings. More microphones also improve the Transparency Mode, which allows you to listen into your surroundings with a simple tap on the earphone.

“With the third generation Beoplay E8, we have made the world’s best sounding true wireless earphones even better. At Bang & Olufsen, we never stop challenging the boundaries of performance, craft and design and this obsession has led us to create the next edition of Beoplay E8, which will give our customers a more powerful true wireless experience and better sound in a compact design,” says Christoffer Østergaard Poulsen, Vice President of Product Management at Bang & Olufsen.

Beoplay E8 comes wrapped in a leather case with wireless charging that lets you take Beoplay E8 with you all day, and the earphones fit into the leather case with a secure magnetic click.

Optimised Sound Performance

Building on 94 years of sound engineering Bang & Olufsen engineers have optimised the sound performance by implementing a new bass port that lets airflow in and out of the acoustic chamber. This allows the drivers inside Beoplay E8 to move more freely and produce a greater and more precise bass output. Users can also download Beoplay App to tweak the sound through the ToneTouch visual equalizer, drag around the dot between four areas to seamlessly change the audio experience accordingly, pitch to change the soundscape or use the presets to make quick adjustments.


With the latest technology, including Bluetooth 5.1, Beoplay E8 offers a fast setup whilst the battery consumption is kept at a minimum. ACC and aptX™ codecs ensure wireless sound in iOS and Android devices.

Beoplay E8 3rd Generation (RRP 350 EUR, 350 USD, 300 GBP, 2698 CNY, 2750 DKK) comes complete with a premium leather wireless charging case, five ear tips, and a USB-C charging cable.
