Third generation of B&O E8 headphones

More accessories: B&O launches a new generation of its wireless headphones; Nomad presents new wireless charger

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is over, but that does not mean that the torrent of accessories launched by manufacturers that revolve around the world Apple has ceased – even with the end of the fair, companies take advantage of the visibility period to show their creations most recent.

Next, we will highlight three of them.

Bang & Olufsen

The celebrated audio equipment manufacturer launched the third generation of E8, your wireless headphones that almost compete with AirPods Pro – I say “almost” because they occupy a higher price range and appeal to a different audience, although both overlap in a number of ways.

The new generation of E8’s main attraction is a drastic increase in battery time: from the previous 16 hours, we now have until 35 hours of continuous reproduction (considering the refills of the case; it is 7 hours considering the headphones alone). In addition, we now have four microphones (before there were two) for even more accurate sound capture; even with the additions, the headphones were reduced in size by 17%.

The new E8 will start to be sold on the next 14th at the suggested price of $ 390 – which already includes the beautiful leather-covered case. What about?


Meanwhile, Nomad is surfing the fame of the Base Station Pro (its wireless charger with functionality similar to the late AirPower) to present more interesting accessories. The newest creation of the manufacturer is not that advanced, but by no means less remarkable – this is the Base Station Stand.

Base Station Stand, by Nomad

We have here a wireless charger in the form of stand, that is, it leaves your device upright during charging – great for those who like to check information or notifications quickly without removing the smartphone from the base, or simply use it as a kind of clock radio at night.

The biggest differential of the Base Station Stand is the possibility to recharge the smartphone both standing and lying down; it has two coils at different locations on the surface to make this possible. The accessory is capable of recharging devices up to 10W (or 7.5W in the case of iPhones, as this is the maximum supported by Apple devices).

The accessory is built in a single piece of aluminum, and has leather surfaces to support your smartphone; it already comes with a USB-C to USB-A cable and a plug adapter. The Base Station Stand costs $ 100 and is now available for purchase on the Nomad website.


Finally, Logitech introduced the new Ergo K860 Ergonomic Split Keyboard, a keyboard designed to maximize the comfort of your typing and the health of your joints and muscles. It has a curved design, with two separate sets of keys and a design that respects the natural resting position of the hands, improving the user’s posture and reducing muscle stress.

The peripheral also has a padded rest on its bottom, to maximize comfort and ergonomics. It can be connected to a device (macOS, Windows, Linux, iOS, Android) both via Bluetooth and its USB receiver; power is supplied by two AAA batteries, which, according to Logitech, are sufficient for up to two years of use.

The Ergo K860 is already on sale in the American Logitech store for $ 130, but there is no news of his arrival in Brazil – yet.
