B&O PLAY has launched its first truly wireless earphones, Beoplay E8
For the splash and dust resistant Beoplay E8 you can, “…take the earphones out of the premium leather charging case, tap on the aluminium encircled touch interface and you are set up to listen to music, switch between tracks, take calls and activate Transparency Mode and voice commands,” said the company.
With everything controlled by the touch interface on the earphones, you don’t have to take your smartphone out of your pocket.
Two additional charges on the move Beoplay E8 delivers up to four hours of music on one charge, for two additional charges on the move simply snap the earpieces into the charging case. The case sports a braided fabric strap. As Beoplay E8 has small magnets built into each earphone, clicking them into the charging case will automatically power down the earphones and start to charge them.
Each earpiece has a 5.7mm dynamic speaker, a small electromagnetic transducer, NFMI technology and a Bluetooth 4.2 chip with Digital Sound Processing.
Beoplay E8 comes with an audio-transparency feature called Transparency Mode, which lets you decide just how much real-world sound you want to hear. Chose between three levels of audio pass-through in Beoplay App and activate Transparency Mode by tapping once on the left earpiece.
You can fine tune your listening experience by using Beoplay App for Android, iPhone and Apple Watch to control Beoplay E8,
