" ...  I have the H9 headphones as well as a couple speakers, plus my wife has a set of H7s. ... I just wanted a good set for music. ... Just the music, please. ... B&O has a signature sound and they captured it with these headphones. ... There's a wider soundstage and an overall cleaner sound. ... But, most reviews, when they start talking about the music sound quality, they rate them as pretty good. ... I've seen some people frustrated with sound levels and transparency. ... If you are looking for a set of totally wireless earbuds that does quality of sound well, and you're not concerned about countless features that may never be used, these are the phones for you.  ...  "

" ...  For me the most important feature of headphones are sound quality. ... Yes they matter but I just want to hear music the way it was intended. ... I have owned a pair of Bang & Olufsen speakers for 30 years and they are wonderful. ... and for sound quality they are really close to what my large headphones produce.  ...  "

" ...  The E8's audio quality is comparable to the H5's and better than the AirPods (still my overall favorite for comfort and ease-of-use). ... The sound is clean, crisp, rich and reasonably flat.  ...  "

comment
" ...  They are beautiful but the left earbud sound is way lower than the right making the soundstage terribly unbalanced. ... The right earbud tonality sounds totally B&O and beautiful.  ...  "

" ...  As a wireless headphone fanatic, I backed Earin on Kickstarter, own AirPods, H5's and some excellent over-ears (I've tried many others and returned). ... As I sit and listen to the unbelievably great sound coming from these tiny, wireless gadgets sitting comfortably in my ears, it occurred to me how far we have come since the crappy heavy wired Koss cans I use to connect to my huge receiver or the horrible over ear headphones that connected to Sony's Walkman.  ...  "

" ...  I wish the foam tips were smaller, but the medium silicone ones work just fine. ... these are on the luxury end of their product type whereas airpods are more on the mainstream, everybody has one, affordable side of things. ... I really like them and have put my airpods away in favor of these.  ...  "

Let me say that I am not an audiophile, but I do have a discerning ear and have a great appreciation for high quality sound reproduction. ...

The right bud is the "master" bud, which talks to your phone via bluetooth, and the left bud is the "slave", which, according to B&O's marketing, "are crafted with Near Field Magnetic Induction (NFMI), an innovative audio streaming technology used in hearing aids that ensures zero dropouts between the two earbuds.".  ...  "

" ...  If I am honest, you can detect a very slight delay but only if you are really looking for it. ... Interestingly, the iPad Pro 9.7" had the strangest issues with delay. ... Sometimes there was no lag at all and then I would switch to a different video and get large delay. ... I'd switch back to the original and the delay was suddenly there too.  ...  "
