It's hard to create wireless earbuds that are durable, lightweight, and waterproof while maintaining rich sound quality. But with the Beoplay E8 Sport, B&O's designers and engineers have done just that. It delivers rich Bang & Olufsen signature sound in any weather.

Outdoors or at the gym. Whatever your sport or activity, the E8 Sport earbuds are sure to fit. Lightweight, durable, and ergonomically shaped, the E8 Sport earbuds come with a variety of silicone eartips and soft ear fins for customization. They ensure a perfect and comfortable fit.
It is a standard or slightly higher quality package in its price range.
There is no shortage of accessories. The package contains the following:
- Bang & Olfsen E8 Sport
- Charging case
- Bang & Olfsen E8 Sport
- USB Type-C cable
- Eartips (4 sizes)
- Comply Sport eartips
- Silicone ear fins (3 sizes)
It has a calm, luxurious, and functional design that is typical of B&O.
The build quality meets the standard of the price. The charging case is smooth to open and close with little wobble in the lid.
The earphone itself is a bit large, but it also has ear fins, so the fit is not bad.
I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with AAC. The quality of the connection is excellent for the price range. I haven't been in crowded places, so I don't know, but it's stable in the home. Distance tolerance is excellent, and the connection is seamless and intact even at a distance of about 5 meters. The music plays without any problems, even when interrupted by obstructions, and there are no interruptions.
The white noise is a bit noticeable, but it doesn't bother me during music playback.

Sound quality description
The Bang & Olfsen E8 Sport is an earphone that emphasizes staging in the midrange and gives a three-dimensional sound with a sense of depth. The midrange tends to sound a little thin and digital in texture, but the beauty is that the resolution is high.
The following review was tested on a FiiO M15 with an aptX connection.
Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.
Sound quality general comment
Overall, the B&O E8 Sport has a high resolution, clean and clear sound. The mids are a little thin, but they are excellent in expressing detail and nuance, and they are fully extendable and excellent in terms of range.
Personally, I like the sound a lot.
Sound quality features
The B&O E8 Sport is a completely wireless earphone that has a clean and clear sound field and gives you a monitor-like, detail-oriented sound. The resolution is impressive, the space is clear, and you can enjoy your music with great detail. The sound quality is appealing, but the price is a bit on the strong side, making it a bit tough to beat in terms of cost performance.
