Y'all blew it. My Kindle 5 works so much better than the Fire 8, I'm sorry I wasted my money in the Fire 8.
The 2 pair of identical bluetooth head phones I have won't pair smoothly with the Fire 8 like they do with Kindle 5. I have two pair so I can always have a set charging without interruption.
I'm keeping the Fire 8, because I'm buying it for monthly payments. Hopefully there's a.m update for it that can be automatically downloaded? It doesn't seem like it should be sold for $79.99. Money back would be nice customer service.
