Ninety years of history that told by Bang and Olufsen in the field of musical accessories, which continues to look to the future, with the presentation at IFA 2017 of the new Beoplay E8 earphones, which represent a real AirPods alternative, as well as a rival for headphones wireless Apple.

The new fully wireless earbuds were recently unveiled at the IFA 2017 in Berlin, called Beoplay E8, probably capable of stealing some customers from Apple, as well as stealing AirPods from the scene. Despite the obvious similarities between the two headsets, Bang & Olufsen's proposal leverages the quality aspect to even beat Apple, trying to maintain those standards that represent the company's signature. The new, smaller, and extremely portable form factor will not affect B&O quality.

Among the main features of these new Beoplay E8 is that of isolation, which tend not to allow external sounds to transpire, for even more immersive listening; in addition, the ToneTouch section of the B&O application available on iOS and Android will allow you to adjust the tone at best.

These two features, in addition to its 5.7 mm dynamic speaker, together with the small electromagnetic transducer, NFMI technology and a Bluetooth 4.2 chip with Digital Sound Processing should help the new headphones stand out from the competition.

Of course, quality has a price, and anyone who believes in saving with the purchase of BeoPlay E8 compared to Apple's AirPods would fall into error. The new B&O completely wireless earphones will be available starting October 12th, in black and carbon color, at a price of 299 euros.
