Went to try out e8 n jabra elite 65t

Felt the volume at max was still a tad too soft.

Tried testing with default equaliser on/off still not not much effect. Tried them with their own individual app equaliser also didnt excite me.

Then i was recommended to try out erato verse.

The fit was better than 2 of the above imo.

Ended up buying them.

I also tried boom equaliser frm app store.

Made alot of difference to the sound ( as erato didnt have its own individual app/equaliser).

My 2 cents from a iphone user.
Too soft? Don't know whether it is an iPhone problem

My 65t is super loud and distorted at 100%, need adjust to 80% for comfortable loud listening

This morning I used my Beoplay E8 for the very first time and set transparency to 'commute'. Then the volume was quite soft, even at near max volume. Then I reduced volume and turned transparency off, and volume was back loud and loud enough even at 70%. Tweaked tonetouch and it's perfect!

Using iPhone X here and it's not an iPhone problem, most probably it's settings problem or fitting of the earbuds.

Nope it's not like that. At first I also thought bass is not strong, but you have to go to the Beoplay app, under tonetouch setting and move the white circle vertically up, this will increase bass. left and right controls the pitch. You can place the circle anywhere according to your liking and expand it to increase surround.

In fact, the E8 is the most sophisticated true wireless earbuds I've ever used and B&O lived up to its name. Next is Bose's Soundsport free.

Damn. I never take a look at the rear of the case whenever i deposit the buds in to the charging case.
At first i came here ask also when i just got my E8. Why no way to show how much charge remaining left in the case when i dont have cables.

I choose to go True Wireless because i dont want to bring cables out. Then after ranting here i found out they do light up briefly whenever u plug the buds back

Yes. I have already say at the beginning that E8 has the best sound of all the TW that i have used.

Glad to have so many agreeing with me!

What i don't like about E8:
- Touch controls
- 4 hour battery life

What i like:
- leather battery case

What i don't like about 65t:
- battery case quite tricky to open
- earphones doesn't magnetically attach to battery case so might drop out accidentally

Why dislike the touch controls on E8?

I bought the E8 because the pixel buds isnt a gd option. Using a pixel 2 xl.

It really is. I've Earin M-1, then AirPods and now the Beoplay E8. Do you believe that the AirPods sound even better than the Earin M-1?

Earin m1 needs aptx to sound good. If using iPhone will have no advantages. Dun really like Airpods as is opened type. Btw I dun use Earin m1 now as right kept skipping. Actually waiting for m2 to try.

Sony vs Jabra

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone can provide some comments on Jabra Elite 25e vs Sony MDR-50BS? I am thinking of getting either of it, but not sure which is better.

Thanks!
