“ There are three elements that people specifically look for in a set of sports earphones: a waterproof and customizable design that is comfortable during long runs and workouts, a playing time that lasts well beyond the finish line and, above all, a ‘excellent sound quality – everyone tells us that nothing is more important than powerful music to motivate, push beyond the limit and give your best ,’ says Christoffer Poulsen, VP of Product Management.
High performance and aesthetics
Beoplay E8 Sport does not give up on aesthetics in favor of utility and stands out for its world-class audio and design without compromising on performance.
The earphones are housed in a compact case for wireless charging that combines high performance materials typical of the sports universe, such as rubber and textured silicone , with corrosion-resistant anodized aluminum , a Bang & Olufsen trademark for over 50 years old.
The earphones are equipped with an anodized aluminum ring that defines the brand’s range of true wireless earphones; the engraved Bang & Olufsen logo has been redesigned with sporty yet elegant graphics . The attention to design details can be seen, for example, in the knurled edge of the earphones. It facilitates adjustments when the fingers are wet and sweaty.
In addition, to avoid unnecessary stops or distractions during the race, the earbuds can switch between tracks, answer calls and activate Transparency Mode , all with a simple touch or swipe of the finger.
