65t after recent software update no longer get disconnections when standing near bus card readers. Only got noise interference that sounds like crumpling paper

Anyone else same experience?

After a few days of using the E8, here are some personal feedback.

1) No Idea how to switch off. I assume put into the charging box means off.
2) When running with it, the silicon ear tips aren't suitable. They create a seal in the beginning but during the run, the earbuds become "sealed" then "unsealed" then "seal" then "unsealed", continuously. Very irritating.
3) Have not tried the foam tips during run. But music doesn't sound as nice with it. Additionally bought Comply's TWS foam eartips. Will feedback when comparing the sports foam eartips included vs the TWS eartips.
4) The beoplay app... sibeh jialat. Cannot detect the earbuds most of the time.

For now, bo bian. Got to keep replacing eartips during different usage periods.

Still, a lovely piece. I can live with the small disturbances.

bought the e8!

a small question - i can't seem to play again after pausing on youtube (single right earbud tap), in the beoplay app seems ok.

Also, how to connect to a bluetooth enabled laptop ah?

Is this normal?

1) It automatically turns off once placed in the charging case.
2) & 3) Never ran with it and it's also not suitable for runs. Comply tips are indeed better in seal and more comfortable but need to replace after a while of usage.
4) I've no problems with the app and it detects my E8 all the time.

I am using the comply comfort 200 for E8. Tried using with Comply TW and the fit is very lose. So far comfort 200 is the best at least for me.

that is what i experienced.. i contacted support they say no way to restore firmware and tried many ways to ask me re-update my firmware but it does not work.. hopefully they come up with a patch to solve this.. I rather my music pause n play than to have the irritating crumpling sound
I've also updated to 2.6.0 (1033) more than 2 weeks ago but doesn't encountered such issue.

Play pause works fine for me. On mobile.

To connect E8 to laptop, my steps were:

1) turn on bluetooth on laptop
2) on the E8 take both buds out of charging case.
3) left & right hold for ~5secs to set E8 to pairing mode(right bud will flash blue led). Remember once in pairing mode, release touch. Otherwise holding for ~10secs will set E8 to reset all previously paired devices.
4) on laptop while your E8 is set on pairing mode, scanning should detect the E8. Connect to it.
5) enjoy
