Waterproof and Sweatproof
With an IPX7 rating, the CAPOXO D8 Wireless Earbuds are fully waterproof and can be submerged in 1m of water for 30 minutes. This makes them perfect for intense workouts, running in the rain, or listening to music by the pool. The internal nano-coating protects the internal components from sweat and moisture damage.
In real-world use, the CAPOXO D8 earbuds deliver very good audio quality and stable Bluetooth connectivity. The over-ear fit ensures they stay put during workouts and running. Waterproofing protects them from sweat and rain. Call quality is good with noise reduction technology on the microphones. The long battery life reduces charging frequency.
The CAPOXO D8 Wireless Earbuds produce decent sound quality for the price with balanced highs, mids, and lows. Bass is present but not very deep or punchy. Volume levels can reach high levels without distortion. The sound quality is good for casual listening but lacks some detail and depth for critical listening. Call quality is also decent with minimal background noise.

Build Quality and Durability

Positive aspects frequently mentioned:
Long battery life - Many reviewers call out the long 120 hour total battery life as a major pro. This is much higher than comparable models, allowing uninterrupted all-day use.

Cheap build quality - Some users report issues with the plastic housing breaking or buttons stopping working after a few months. Durability could be improved.
Case design flaws - The charging case is difficult to open due to the lack of a thumb notch. The battery indicator turns off too quickly to check status.
