The original BeoPlay E8 earphones were billed as truly wireless, and that was true — except when it was time to charge them up. This 2.0 revision eliminates that final cord with a leather changing case that supports both micro USB and Qi wireless charging. As before, they're crafted from aluminum, stainless steel, and leather, with a reassuring build quality that feels great in your ears. An app-accessed Digital Signal Processor lets you adjust the EQ and gain to suit your preferences, a built-in mic lets you handle phone calls, and an adjustable Transparency Mode that lets you hear the world around you. The latter is accessed via an intuitive touch interface that also lets you start and stop the audio, change tracks, and activate voice commands. They offer a playtime of four hours on their own, with an extra twelve provided by the case, and are a great-sounding alternative to ubiquitous white 'buds. With the release of the 2.0's, it means you can also pick up the original E8's for quite a bargain.
