Connection quality

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

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.

General comment

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.
