What customers say about "Key Specs"
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 Premium Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earphones - Charcoal Sand
  • Sound quality + equalizer are amazing.
  • Due to it's sealed in-ear design, the sound quality is better assuming you can get them sealed properly for your ear. If not sealed, they sound hollow and weak.
  • Otherwise, these are the best sounding and SECOND easiest to use wireless earbuds yet.
  • First impression of audio was poor. Upon initial pairing, sound quality was VERY compressed and bad sounding. VERY bad.
  • Sound quality is good, but the Equalizer app took over an hour of reserach and frustration to get working, and once it does come up there isn't even a real EQ.
Jabra Elite 65t True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds
  • My first pair of true wireless earbuds were the Earin model. Great sound and ultra-small. Unfortunately, the buds kept cutting out between the left and right sides.
  • I have owned the Bose Quiet comfort for several months, while they were nice they had incredible sound leak and the phone switching was really clunky.
  • Sound quality is great and I haven’t experienced any cut outs like others have mentioned.
  • I am not an audiophile, so take my perception of their sound with a grain of salt. In my opinion these headphones sound decent.
  • The sound is very volume level is POOR. The earphones feel balanced with a good bass (not too much).

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 Premium Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earphones - Charcoal Sand
  • The ear buds come with a variety of silicone tips and two medium size Complyfoam tips.
  • Just decided to try the large size tips and find that the sound, especially the base, is a bit better than I originally thought. Don't assume you don't need a larger size.
  • Love the compact size (no one knows...) and features.
  • The way the earphone sits inside your ear is not very comfortable to me, I tried all different size of earbuds and strangely the left side fits better than the right side!
  • Fit is also bad: buds keep falling regardless of insert size.
Jabra Elite 65t True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds
  • On opening I was really impressed with the small size of these, they look really nice and didn't make me look like an alien (I didn't like the look of the apple earpods and bose).
  • Don't let the size of the case fool you; you will not find truly wireless headphones with a better battery life than these.
  • These earphones come with 3 different size options and I actually found a size that fits well (the smallest).
  • Charging case was half the size, but for me not as slick as the Sony - this one is plastic and earphones don't clip in, but not a problem for me, and the smaller case is better.
  • Earbuds sound very good given the size of the units, and the battery life for wireless earbuds is outstanding.

What customers say about "Features"
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 Premium Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earphones - Charcoal Sand
  • One handy feature is that your phone and the B&O app can connect to and change settings on the buds even if they are paired to another device.
  • The Beoplay app allows very good adjustment. But the controls are hidden a little in the App. Once I figured it out it is very useful.
  • B&O also features several other useful gestures such as volume control without clunky buttons.
  • he hear through features are blah but that's not what I bought it for. Great highs miss are good ,and if you are looking for bass you may not like these.
  • One downside is that they do not seem to auto connect when taking them out of the case like the airpods or the bose Sport Free. Not a big deal but that would have been a nice feature.
Jabra Elite 65t True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds
  • In my opinion, features like hear-through are terrible and are simply a waste of battery life. The only decent software feature is being able to adjust 65t's sound curve.
  • One of the best features that I like about this product is that when you take one of the ear buds out of your ear (short distance away from the other ear bud) it will automatically pause any music/podcast you were listening to, and then restart when it's put back in.
  • The "listen through" feature is rubbish merely adding hiss and noise. Everything else is good.
  • The talk through feature works pretty well in the office. It means I can have quick conversations without pulling anything out of my ears.
  • I have to say I really liked these earbuds, the sound was good with decent noise cancelling effect, although this is not an actual feature of this device.

What customers say about "Power"
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 Premium Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earphones - Charcoal Sand
  • The E8s go about 3-4 hours and charge much slower, taking 90+mins to fully charge.
  • Was tempted to return these but loved the battery life and form factor of case. With a little work I made them great.
  • All around excellent product...sound quality comparable to the Shure, designed to look inconspicuous, all day comfort, great battery life. Just make sure to use the foam tips.
  • The sound is very good, the base is good, the battery life is very good as well. These are a pricey, but for the sound quality they are definitely worth it.
  • The spec for these quote 4 hours battery life and it appears so far that this is fairly accurate. And the case does indeed give two full extra charges.
Jabra Elite 65t True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds
  • Battery life is decent. Because I don’t tend to listen for more than 2 hours at a time it’s fine for me as I just pop them back in the case between listens.
  • The battery life on the 65ts is nothing short of exceptional. Jabra quotes 5 hours of use without charging and I am inclined to believe them.
  • These earphones come in a re-chargeable case. I've managed to get a whole week our of a single charge to the case. I'm impressed with that side of things.
  • attery life is impressive, giving up to five hours. And charging is easy - just pop them in the case and connect it via USB.
  • Battery life-threatening I charged the pack for a few hours and then put my headphones into the pack.
