The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 earphones are a great way to enjoy that Bang & Olufsen sound on-the-go. While the first model was a good time, the company is ready to update their earphones with a whole new set of quality of life improvements.
With the Beoplay E8 2.0, the biggest quality of life improvement is the charging case. Now you can charge up the earphones up to 3 times, which totals up to about 16 hours of use. This is quite the upgrade from the 12 hours it provided with the original Beoplay. The charging case itself can now also be charged wirelessly, with a new wireless charging pad.
While the earphones themselves won’t change all that much, there are a few improvements to be had. For one, it also has a new charging method, which is now through USB-C, which definitely makes it way easier to charge.
The Beoplay E8 2.0 will also come with a price increase, going from USD $ 249 to USD $ 299, the charging case itself will also be made available on its own for USD $ 200. These new products will only hit store shelves sometime in 2019. Check our review of last year’s Beoplay E8 to find out if these earphones are right for you.
