"The Beoplay E8 are the cream of the true wireless crop right now, but a high price of $300 may still keep them out just beyond reach. Right now, you can grab great models like the SoundSport Free or WF-1000X for as much as $100 less, with only a small drop in audio fidelity. You could also wait for a sale, but it's also likely the competition will only improve in that time."
B&O Play got a lot of things right: the E8s look great, they come with a snazzy, compact case, and deliver on sound quality. But if you base expectations off of traditional, relatively trouble-free Bluetooth headphones and earbuds, you will be frustrated by the dropouts. B&O Play got ahead of itself in trying to enter the truly wireless earbud market with a high-end, expensive product. The technology just wasn’t there yet in 2017, but things are still only getting started in the hunt for the perfect truly wireless earbuds.
