Unhappy B&O E8 or Jabra Elite Active 65T

Can't decide between them. What are your opinions?
I also use an iPhone if that helps.

Can get the B&O For under $300.

Help me decide !

I don't plan on using either to exercise. I want to prolong their life. Am already using the Jaybird for exercise. If for general use, which would you recoomend? Still the jabra?

I'd say go for the E8, sound quality also better.

Jabra sounds fantastic on my iphone x. You can give it a try.
Go stereo Singapore to test out both and see which sound output you prefer.

I own the Beoplay e8 , it’s good but troublesome for switching devices. The Bluetooth is only 4.1 or .2 , thus be ready to be annoyed by the constant drop if you’re in a crowded area ( e.g turn your head away from phone, your left side gets dropped )

Overall go for one with Bluetooth 5

P.s it’s still a good device but Ensure you get comply form tips for best isolation

Seen lots of posts talking about connection problems and constant drops with the E8.
Qoo now can get the E8 for $250. But no warranty. Very very tempting.

But think im gonna go with the Jabra Elite Active. Could use some vouchers also at stereo. Plus they will have 2 year warranty.

Eh for such expensive toy I suggest get with warranty. You really wonít know whether you get an authentic (especially from qoo) or a lemon set. At least if anything wrong you can get the relevant technical support.

Exactly my thought. Heading down to stereo tomorrow to buy the elite active. But now im actually thinking if i should hold off till Christmas to see if they might have a better sale.

Think now their sale price is around 265 for the Titanium Black Elite Active.
Should just buy now ? Or wait for better sale?
