Does the E8 have any lag while watching YouTube or videos etc? Any recommendations to get E8 or E8 v2.0? Is it compatible with older devices like iPhone 6s or better to use it with newer phones? Would gladly appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance!
No lag. The only difference between E8 and E8 v2.0 is the inclusion of a re-designed wireless charging case and new colours. Other than that, the earbuds are basically the same. It should also be compatible with iPhone 6 series.

Thanks for the info! Btw can the strap be removed from the E8 charging case or is it permanently there?

Another thing to ask, how long is the battery life of the ear buds and with the charging case? Is it suitable for jogging/gym too?

The strap is permanently there. It's elastic. It's supposed to last 4 hours and should be good for 2 charges? (not sure). Not suitable for jogging. It has nothing to hook onto your ear or some fitter inside to fit snug in your ear. However, I've used it on treadmill with no problems.

I got the Sony WF-1000x previously. It is good but the connection usually drops. Switched to Bose Soundsport Free. Does your Sony drops connection too?

After a year with the Beo e8, I've decided to ditch it. Bought a Sony wf 1000x and couldn't be happier.
e8 is not meant for everyone. The tip is very short and is not meant for those who needs a long tip to have it sit snugly. I couldn't get a good seal for the music to sound good. Comply tips improved it somewhat but still was a "forced" experience. Had to push it in real hard to get a good seal. The left side also become softer than the right side too. Some said is due to firmware update but I'm not sure.

No, itís attached to the case permanantly. Iíve tried before over 2 hrs of continuous listening and still got batt left. Jogging/gym Iím not sure as I donít do that.

I just bought the E8 v2.0 indigo blue from the Grand Hyatt showroom, comes with complementary Belkin 5W wireless charger.

Was told the earbuds actually are slightly improved over the first gen, with better bass response and treble. The new wireless charging case feels more solid and premium due to metal accents as well and the indigo blue colour I chose have a unique shade to it.

So far so good, no drops, disconnections or any form of interruption.

Mostly is the left and right , one is them drop momentarily. Usually happens suddenly but quickly. Minor annoyance

Just wondering, is the 2.0 much better than the original e8 or better to go for the savings?

Slight improvement in sound over first gen. The main thing is the wireless charging case. If you don't need it, the first gen is good enough.
