Pioneer announced the new E8 Wireless In-Ear Sports Headphones for fitness fans looking for cord-free listening with a secure fit. The $149 truly wireless earphones (model SE-E8TW) are IPX5 water-resistant and include Ambient awareness earphone tips to keep you safe. Playback control, call management, and voice-assistant interaction come hands-free via Multi-Function Button, and Pioneer Notification App for Android can read out mail and more on the go.
The E8 earphones come with three pairs of secure ear fins in small, medium and large sizes, guaranteeing a perfect fit for your ear size and shape. The fins lock each ear bud into place, making them almost impossible to shake free during a workout. The Ear Direct Mount Structure features angled drivers and nozzles that aim sound straight into the inner ear, avoiding damping issues. Instead, audio is clear, detailed, and dynamic.
6 mm rare-earth magnet drivers offer up the power in your music, while AAC codec ensures high-quality wireless sound with Bluetooth version 4.2 for quick and easy pairing. The internal earphone batteries provide a maximum three hours continuous connection (including audio playback) on a single charge. The E8’s carry case can replenish the units twice, thus extending your listening time to about nine hours. A simple shake of the charging case causes the LEDs to display the remaining battery charge.
Features for Athletes
Ambient awareness earphone tips keep you in touch with the world while maintaining musical immersion. The tips feature three narrow slits that allow low-level ambient sound into the ear, allowing you to hear what’s happening around you.
Pioneer Notification App for Android reads out notifications such as e-mail, SMS, and messages. It’s great when you can’t reach your phone during exercise. The app can alert you to calendar updates, read the latest news headlines, and much more.
