We have today launched our latest fully wireless in-ear headphones Beoplay E8 2.0, which is the sequel and an improved version of our popular Beoplay E8. But what is the difference between the Beoplay E8 and the new Beoplay E8 2.0 wireless in-ear headphone? We will below try to clarify the similarities and differences between these two very exciting B&O products.

Both earphones:

  • are in-ear headphones.

  • are designed by Jakob Wagner.
  • have multifunction button on each earphone – touch-interface.
  • have Bluetooth 4.2 – AAC-codec
