BeoPlay A2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker

BeoPlay A2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker

Bang & Olufsen today announced the $400 BeoPlay A2, their first Bluetooth portable speaker with 360-degree sound and a 24-hour battery. It features the world’s first omni-directional sound solution for a flat speaker, which ensures that everyone listening enjoys equally good sound no matter where they are.

BeoPlay A2 is a two-channel speaker with the two channels on each side of the device applying a new Bang & Olufsen solution called “Power Response Enhancement”. It includes an extra tweeter on the rear side of the main driver that gives you a more even high frequency radiation around the edges. This two channel speaker solution is combined with the main speaker drivers’ omni-directional sound dispersion at low frequencies, and results in what B&O calls a True360 sound experience — powerful, room-filling music in all directions.

The company says A2’s sound profile is honest, clean and passionate — and delivers all the beautiful details your music has to offer. With it’s 24 hours of battery life B&O says no other comparably sized speaker comes even close to matching that amount of playing time.

The rechargeable Li-ion battery inside the speaker features our “Adaptive Power Management” technology that both monitors and anticipates the incoming audio signal in order to save battery life. This innovative technology makes it possible to feed the exact amount of power needed by the amplifiers – and only when they need it.

Designed by the award-winning Danish industrial designer Cecilie Manz, BeoPlay A2 has a unique flat design with two rugged polymer shells and a rock solid aluminium core that brings cool Scandinavian elegance, acoustic stability and durability.

A short, exchangeable, premium leather strap lets you easily carry the speaker with you wherever you’re going – and because of the Bluetooth technology there’s no need for an internet connection, just pair your mobile device with the speaker, and you’re ready in a matter of seconds.

B&O Play by Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A2 will be available at end of October 2014 for $399 / 349 EUR / 2499 DKK in Grey, Green and Black. For more info see
