Beoplay P2 Pocket Speaker Packs a Punch

Beoplay P2 Bluetooth Speaker in hand (sandstone color)

2017 New Product Release:

B&O PLAY just released their the smallest and most intelligent wireless Bluetooth speaker called the Beoplay P2. The $170 go-anywhere portable speaker claims to punch out rich, clear and crisp 360-degree audio for the same spacious sound in any direction. It was designed by Cecilie Manz and comes in premium materials such as pearl-blasted aluminium and real leather, with customizable and intuitive control features via Beoplay App. Beoplay P2 is rounded, smooth and fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. A basic geometrical shape with a defined rim separates the pearl-blasted anodized aluminium top from the soft and warm polymer that make up the underside. The curvature of Beoplay P2 has undergone endless fine tuning to give it a highly tactile and refined appearance.

Bang & Olufsen looked to the Beoplay A1 for the reproduction of bass out of such a small product. They elaborated on Beoplay A1’s mid-woofer and designed a new one for Beoplay P2 using an anodized aluminium cone structure. The tweeter in Beoplay P2 is the same 3/4″ fabric soft dome used in Beoplay A1 assuring excellent detail and smooth reproduction of the highest frequencies. The DSP is advanced, highly capable and enables use of high slope filters and advanced character control to facilitate the excellent personal sound amplification experience in Beoplay P2. Two 15W RMD Class D Amps are used with a peak power of more than 2 X 50-watts drive it all.

Beoplay P2 has a built-in microphone for taking calls out loud, and the rimmed design on the speaker’s bottom edge enables the microphone to provide uniform 360 speech sensitivity. This enables the person listening to recognize voices perfectly, no matter where people are speaking in proximity to the microphone.

“We decided to remove all switches and buttons for a beautiful exterior and a simple and magical user experience that can be customized in Beoplay App. With just a double tap or shake, you can play, pause and skip track, launch your favourite voice assistant, change sound profile in ToneTouch and you can set up Beoplay App to wake you up with the same music that concluded a beautiful evening – reliving your latest goosebump moment as you wake up and get ready to chase the next,” says Director of Concept and Design in B&O PLAY Matthias F. Ørum-Hansen.

As an extra accessory to protect Beoplay P2, you can purchase a black leather sleeve. The Beoplay P2 sleeve provides a layer of protection to keep your Beoplay P2 safe when you are on the go, while still maintaining the beautiful and authentic B&O PLAY design.
