HolyHigh EA8 True Wireless Earbuds are earbuds that feature V 5.0 Bluetooth, Hi-Fi Stereo, TWS, Deep bass, Mic, and a Portable charging case. These wireless earbuds are waterproof, and lightweight. They’re also classified as sports earbuds. This usually means that the earbuds in question aren’t prone to falling out during excessive exercises and are resistant to sweat. They only come in white and black.
NOTE: Due to the lack of reviews about these earbuds on other Internet websites, every aspect of my review is written based on the HolyHigh EA8 True Wireless Earbuds’ Amazon page.
Brand credibility is quite questionable, so I decided to put this paragraph this high up as a means of warning to our readers. Namely, this brand has their own website, holyhigh.com. After inspecting the site, I’ve found a lot of grammatical errors and spelling mistakes. Of course, this is never a good thing. However, it is not too uncommon when it comes to similar brands.
The website offers brief and rather shallow analysis of their products. Instead of some useful pieces of information, we are presented with aesthetically pleasing images that make us “forget” about finding the information about the true aspects of their products. As stated before, there is no trace of these particular earbuds anywhere else online except on Amazon, not even on their own (cheap) website!
It’s also worth noting that this product has a 4.9 rating on Amazon, I wasn’t able to find any negative reviews, not even “The overall product is good, BUT…” I’m definitely skeptical, but you can decide for yourselves.

Design & Comfort
HolyHigh EA8 True Wireless Earbuds and their charging case are allegedly very lightweight (4g per earbud) and small, which makes them very comfortable to wear on an everyday basis.
Like many other wireless earbuds, HolyHigh EA8 True Wireless Earbuds offer ear pads in three different sizes (S / M / L) to maximize comfort and stability in the ears.
Here are the two colours of the model:
The extra tips will help you select the size that works best for your ears. And the compactness of these earbuds makes them very discreet when in the ears.
These buds have a matte finish and feature shiny physical button controls as well as LED lights.
Talking about the charging case, it has a very cute design and is super compact. Carrying this in the pocket won’t be an issue.
The HolyHigh branding is present on the case’s front. Along with this, there is also an LED light to indicate battery life condition.
Furthermore, the charging case is magnetized and holds the buds firmly inside so they do not get lost. Inside the charging case, there are left and right indicators marked which is a nice touch and will help to know which bud to put where.
A very useful feature the HolyHigh EA8 earbuds have is that they can be used together and even in mono mode.
All in all, the design of these wireless earbuds is quite simple and clean.
Charging Case of the EA8
Charging case of HolyHigh earbuds slightly resembles AirPods’ charging case. The charging case is white, with the logo name written on the case in grey. The case features a Micro-USB charging port.
20-minute earbud charging time provides you with one hour playtime. A single charge allegedly provides 5-hour uninterrupted playtime
The brand claims that their EA8 Wireless Earbuds have “superior sound quality”. Namely, they’re proud to tell you that their earbuds provide you with rich, clear, and authentic sound, as well as a powerful bass and treble performance. Every customer was praising the brand for this particular feature.
HolyHigh EA8 True Wireless Earbuds indeed have the call option. Call quality is quoted to be very high, without any sound distortions. People who bought this product were very satisfied with the microphone quality and overall sound quality during their calls. In fact, people were very satisfied with the quality of their calls that these earbuds have provided, they use them as a main tool to make calls on an everyday basis!
Controls on HolyHigh EA8 True Wireless Earbuds are button based. There is one button in each earbud doing everything you need, depending on how long you hold it or how quick you double tap it. Controls are relatively responsive, you need to hold for 2 seconds to turn off or raise the volume in the earbuds. For playing or pausing, you just click the button, but there is no data how fast the command is met.
To activate voice-assistant, just click one of the earbuds thrice.
As previously stated, you only have one button to do all the legwork which might be confusing or complicated to some people.
HolyHigh EA8 True Wireless Earbuds are said to be sweat and water resistant. People were, yet again, satisfied with this feature. People have reported that they’ve been working out without any hassle of sweat ruining the buds and that the water from sudden rain didn’t ruin their experience.
Waterproof level is claimed to be IPX5.
Active Noise Cancellation is yet another feature that these amazing earbuds have to offer. HolyHigh claims that these earbuds are made in such a way that they fit perfectly in almost anyone’s ear.

Pros & Cons
- They slightly resemble AirPods
- The price is low for everything they supposedly offer
- Likely false advertising
- Hard to find information on the product other than on their Amazon page
- All the reviews of the EA8 are positive, and rated with 5 stars, raising concerns about the brand’s credibility.
- Sound quality can be inconsistent according to some.
- Connectivity challenges when using multiple devices have been reported by some users.
HolyHigh EA8 True Wireless Earbuds look too good to be true. I mean, you get a high sound quality, waterproof level IPX5, great design, good resistance and comfort all for only under $30. All (and I mean all) reviews are surprisingly positive which doesn’t happen even to the best of the best products. Honestly, it would be believable if the manufacturers actually made an effort to put some bad reviews, just to balance things out. To be fair, I haven’t bought these earbuds, maybe they aren’t half as bad as they might be. However, I wouldn’t throw away money in vain for something that had raised so many red flags upon reading about the product.
