Thanks! But hor, I feel no matter how i play with the ambience with the app, I cant get the bass up. Abit beh shiok when listening to EDM.
E8 sounding is not that v shape..if you need bass..you will need to consider jabra elite sport...

E8 Demo

Hi,

If anyone is interested in trying this E8, you head down to Northpoint City South Wing B1-119 to test this thing out.

Had not been using my E8 for months and just now tried to use it. Realised that the battery in the ear buds are dead. Wonder why is it so since it wasn't connected and switched on. The charging case battery went dead i can understand as it should be trying to charge the ear buds all the time but the E8 went dead. Why?

the earbuds have a small battery capacity and lithium battery will lose charge over time.

it is more significant when the capacity itself is small whereas comparing to a larger battery capacity.

the rate of charge loss is dependent on the grade of lithium battery as well as how the entire system is designed..

Yes it does happen sometimes, including mine. Usually wireless earphones have a tendency to get sound interruptions during certain conditions.

The E8 is connected via NFMI and is generally more stable than Bluetooth. If you use your E8 and go near magnetic readers/NFC devices or equipment, the interruption will occur.
Yeah. This does happen. Overall its still very good. =]

It's an excellent piece of true wireless earphones, no regrets buying them.

RRP around $429, but many places sell less than that with offers, promos and discounts. Typically now they cost $300+.

Yeah, I remember retail is around $429, but online or other places sell less than that with promos/discounts. The cost varies.
