Beoplay M3 Wireless Speaker Looks Good, Doesn’t Talk

Beoplay M3

B&O PLAY just released their most compact wireless home speaker called Beoplay M3. The stylish $300 Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled speaker comes with Chromecast Built-in and supports Beolink Multiroom, Apple AirPlay and QPlay 2.0. You can stream music directly from your smart device to the speaker, or you can connect the speaker to Wi-Fi for a multiroom setup. Beoplay M3 will also support Apple’s AirPlay 2 in 2018 letting you send audio to multiple AirPlay compatible speakers at once, which makes it possible to play music from any iPhone to B&O PLAY and Bang & Olufsen’s range of speakers for the home. The one thing it won’t do is accept voice commands out-of-the-box to play music. For that you’ll need an Echo Dot.

Beoplay M3 is designed by award-winning Cecilie Manz and finely tuned by Bang & Olufsen acoustic engineers to deliver a flexible and immersive listening experience in the modern home. The architecture of Beoplay M3 is based on a simple silhouette. Infinite lines run around the oval shape to draw attention to the detail that makes Beoplay M3 confident in its simplicity: the exchangeable cover that adapts Beoplay M3 to your interior style. Beoplay M3 comes with a front cover in either premium, acoustically transparent wool blend fabric – created by the renowned Danish textile company Kvadrat – or a pearl blasted anodized aluminium cover featuring the recognizable B&O PLAY hole pattern.

The main body of Beoplay M3 is made of rigid polymer to house and encapsulate the acoustic chamber – with a soft shore polymer on the base of the speaker for stability and decoupling from the surface it is situated on allows the woofer to perform at its most powerful. It features advanced digital sound processing (DSP) adaptive bass linearization (ABL) and unique control to protect against thermal and mechanical overload.

Beoplay M3 boasts one 3-3/4″ custom designed long stroke mid/woofer. The unit is front firing, utilizing an acoustical reflector carefully designed from listening tests by the Bang & Olufsen tonmeisters. The mid/woofer covers the frequencies from the base band to the upper midrange, ensuring perfect integration of the individual parts of the spectrum. The treble is covered by a high quality soft dome tweeter utilizing neodymium magnet system. A three-position switch fine tunes the speaker to the actual position in the listening room.
