Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay E8s are like luxury Airpods and available now in the UAE

Wires-free audio with a touch of class

Bang & Olufsen have entered the fast-growing wireless in-ear headphone market this year, launching the premium Beoplay E8’s. What’s immediately clear is that they might be the most visually-appealing wire-free buds to date (beating Apple’s just-a-bit-too-dangly-for-our-liking AirPods), with B&O wisely opting for subtlety.

Music playback and calls are handled by touch-sensitive pads, while a nifty feature called Transparency allows external noise passthrough so you don’t become entirely oblivious to the chaotic world around you. The feature can be tweaked to your liking in the Beoplay app.

Considering B&O’s longstanding reputation for rich sound, we don’t expect them to let us down in that department either.

They are on sale now in the UAE (one of only four global territories to get them in this initial rollout) for US$325.
