I'm almost convincing myself to get the B&O E8, but looking at some saying the pairing need a bit of toggling between the phone's BT settings and the Beoplay app.

I'm currently using AirPods in which has pretty good sound, though no isolation. But AirPods connect to the iPhone independently, unlike the E8 which has a master and the other side a slave connected to it and will have some skips. The AirPods rarely skips.

Why I'm looking at the E8 is for sound quality. Before I used AirPods I was using Earin M-1 and sound is also pretty decent. So now considering thoroughly as don't wish to regret spending so much for the E8.
I have Earin M1 and E8. The E8 are just so much better. Totally no fight.

I understand that the E8 is among the best in class, but what about the connection? The Earin M-1 is quite notoriously good in dropping connection on right side (as master is on left) and then disconnecting on its own.

Used the E8 since jan.. daily driver during commute.

No disconnections except split second when near certain areas. E.g. boarding & alighting bus like a bros also mentioned here.

Im using it without the app. Lazy to mess around.

Ok. Just to clarify. Earin m1 master is the left earbud and Bluetooth to it's slave on the right. The Bluetooth from phone to master is good. Only problem is the Bluetooth from master to slave is not strong enough and give connection problem with always the right earbud dropping.

For E8. The master is right earbud. Master to slave is using magnetic induction. So electrically induced magnetic signal will caused interference. This includes magnetic scanners, another magnetic induced TW earbud nearby etc. When this happens. You will know is due to magnetic interference and can move away to avoid.

OK noted. So I can presume the connection between the earbuds of the E8 is more stable as compared to Earin M-1.

Yes. for M1 you do not know when it will skip. It can be anywhere. For E8 very rare and you can move away from the source.

currently using beo play e8 best of Bluetooth inner ear bud. Excellent sound quality and almost no drop (unless the places you walk pass got some interferences) even so it recover fast maybe just 1second or less drop (very seldom happening drop)

sick look and comfortable abit costly but worth every penny.

That's a better price than IT Show. They only give a $10 CapitaLand voucher. No discount from the standard retail price of $268. But Best Denki gave a $20 voucher which was immediately used to offset. So nett is $248. Not worth braving the crowd.

Finally bought the B&O E8 and just placed the earbuds into the charging case. First impressions that the look and feel is premium upon opening the box. I noticed that when the charging case is plugged in, there're white charging lights behind which are flashing and in front got an orange flashing light too.

I downloaded the Beoplay app and got it to connect. But the thing is, seems like transparency settings and other tweaks needed the earbuds to be placed into your ear in order to set? So lets say I'm listening to Spotify on the E8, I've to open the Beoplay app too and tweak settings simultaneously?

I saw review and saw that eq can adjusted on the apps.
I like to ask if the earbuds really has no delay? Like when. Watch movie or something on the phone
