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?
So you hooted the E8

Transparency I think need tap the left ear bud. In app can't change. The other tweaks can set and it will stay there

Is it as good as its hype?
Haha the Challenger salesman say "don't buy la no good, no bass one"

I didn't even ask him for his opinion.

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
yes.. I did use the sound + app to adjust..but still I find the treble ..a bit too bright for me...I think I need more time to get use to it.. for delay..I don't think I can feel any of it..was using it to watch Netflix..and no issue at all..

I see. I've yet to bring it for a trial run tomorrow when I go to work and will tweak from the app. Need to get used to the touch controls and memorise them.

Yeah, it happens. And it's not going to drop only when u are beside the ez-link card reader. It drops in other places for me also, even the right side also drop more frequently now.

Good choice in TW ear buds. The rear led lights up only when the case is being charged. The front amber led light up when the ear pods are in the case and charging.

Yes I noticed the front one turns a solid yellow/green, means the earbuds are fully charged. But the rear two white lights, the second one keeps flashing and turns off by itself.

The rear light is how much charge left in the case.

Ok. Let look at the LEDs. From led is to indicate charging. It is also to indicate that the first earbud is charging. Then put in the second earbud and look at the back. If it blink then it is also charging. Back led if 1 light up means only left 1 full charge if 2 is 2 full charge.

Watched a couple of videos on my iPad Pro while on the flight just now. No sync issues for me.

How is the E8 connectivity? Does it get cut off easily?

Hmm...yes and as of now, the front LED is solid yellow green while the back, second LED still flashing. So I presume must also be solid to indicate full charge.

Just now did a small test, paired it with my iPhone X and opened Spotify to play a song, then at the same time opened the Beoplay app and tried to adjust transparency mode but the 3 options are still greyed out (not selectable) and is still 'OFF'. Is there something I'm missing out? Maybe need to tap from left earbud.
