FOR NEARLY A century Bang & Olufsen has redefined the possibilities of consumer electronics time and time again. Ever since Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen started designing radios in 1925, the brand has become a byword for style, quality, and innovation.

Of course modern technology has evolved to capabilities unimaginable even 20 years ago, let alone 92. Yet Bang & Olufsen are still the brand you want on your mantelpiece and in your ears.

The latest creation from the Danish masters is the Beoplay E8 Racing Green, its fourth release of the Special Edition Collection. These are earphones designed to capture the emotion, the passion and the exhilaration of a colour famous for being fast.

The earphones combine digital sound processing capabilities with superior Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound for a rich, full-bodied and precise soundstage that will make it seem as though your favourite artist is playing in your ear canal.

The earphones come in a premium leather case for charging on the go

Ergonomically engineered to fit comfortably into your ears, Beoplay E8 Racing Green provide up to 12 hours of playtime – you could listen to the White Album nearly eight times over. (Although even the Beatles can be too much of a good thing.)

The earphones come in a premium, genuine leather case for charging on the go, ensuring plenty of style to go with the sophistication.

Your friends will be green with envy.
