So far, InEars from B & O Play saw it so, but to the IFA, the brand of Bang & Olufsen presented the E8, a completely wireless model. For 230 euros they are to come into the trade in October, pre-orders are already accepted.
It looks like you have to get used to this design if you want to do without any cable connection with InEars and do not want to access the AirPods from Apple. Two small nöpsis, sometimes with wing brackets, sometimes without, which fill more or less the entire ear, in order to ensure the best possible wearing comfort. Bragi has made the design popular, Samsung has adopted it for the Gear IconX – and maintained for the second generation – Jabra has such a model on offer and at the IFA numerous manufacturers have already shown prototypes of their own versions, which are still in this year the trade.
The E8 offers about four hours of battery life – also no difference to the competition – the supplied charging case can charge the InEars twice completely. The sides are touch-sensitive; here the next piece in the Playlist can be selected, telephone calls accepted and also determined how much ambient noise should penetrate the ear. The sound of the E8 (5.7mm driver, 16 ohms, 20-20,000 Hz) can be adapted to the personal preferences on the smartphone.
