Summary

Each earbud hosts a variety of different commands that can be enabled through single taps. As a departure from B&O's tradition, the Beoplay E8 Sport does not have a "super premium" look, though it still carries with it the unique Danish design language.

B&O developed a Transparency Mode to allow for ambient listening. The buds can only be used in mono mode, so you can only use one bud during calls. Despite the Beoplay E8 Sport operating on Bluetooth 5.0, the buds experienced its fair share of connection issues.

Sentiment Score[*] 72%
Reviewers from t3 have found the following[***]:
With the Beoplay E8 Sports, you get a warm, laidback sound that is pleasant and immersive. The bass isn't overpowering but certainly present enough to win over bassheads. Jazz fans will adore these while Hip Hop and EDM fans will appreciate the bass. Acoustic music translates nicely as well, even if the sound isn't as detailed as on brighter buds.

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
Bang and Olufsen's E8 Sport are one of the best sounding gym and true wireless earbuds on the market. The buds come with 5.7mm electrodynamic drivers, the same as on the regular E8 3rd Gen. They also support wireless charging, making it quick and easy to top up their battery if you have a compatible Qi charging plate. The only downside is that they don’t come with any form of ANC (active noise cancellation)
