the earpods are getting an update that will give them better battery life.

New updated Beoplay E8 earbuds

Beoplay E8 2.0

 

In the world of Bang & Olufsen products are ocassionally updated whether in hardware, software or both to keep them up to date with the latest goings on in the hectic world of tech.  In the majority of instances these changes are largely under the radar and the product will be updated with little fanfare.  This time it’s a little different.

So what is so different about the updated E8’s that they now carry the title E8 2.0?  Well it’s not just one thing, it’s a series of upgrades that take them quite some way to a fully fledged follow up product.  Let’s look at each update.

 

Wireless Charging

 

The carry case for Beoplay E8 has a USB C connection allowing you to plug it in and charge both the case and earbuds, however now a wireless charging option has been added.  You can simply place your case on a wireless charging pad and it’ll start charging.

 

Longer Battery Life

 

Coupled with the more intuitive charging options is an increase in battery performance.  Whereas previously the case would hold roughly 12 hours of charge, a full charge will now allow 16 hours or total playtime for your E8’s.

 

Updated Case

 

A slightly more subtle change than the first two perhaps but there is now the inclusion of led charging lights on the case as well as an updated aluminium trim design to round off the changes.

 

What’s more if you have the original E8 headphones you can still use the new charging case should you wish to upgrade without changing your actual headphones.  Pre order the new case or full set from Bollo today by clicking below to reserve.
