Move over, AirPods, there’s a new wireless option in town. Bang & Olufsen is joining the ever-competitive wireless charging earphone market with the introduction of the Beoplay E8 2.0. They look characteristically luxe, and characteristically Scandinavian-cool.
The new earphones are the first truly wireless creation of its kind to come from B&O: the earphones receive charge from the case that is itself charged with a wireless charging pad. The tiny tech sustains the B&O aesthetic, with a beautiful design and exquisite sound production.
The case can hold three full charges for up to 16 hours of listening; a welcome update that sets the earbuds above the competition. Using B&O’s companion app, users can also custom-tune their sound for personalized equalization.
Then, there’s style. Needless to say, the Beoplay E8 2.0’s leather is premium. The unit is available in Natural, Limestone, Indigo Blue, and Black. The interior gets a sleek brushed single or double anodized aluminum interior inlay.
The new Beoplay E8 2.0 with the charging chase, charging cable, and five ear tips will be available February 14 for $350. Customers interested exclusively in the charging case can pick one up in April for $200.
