Bang & Olufsen has been working on a minimalist, WiFi, modular speaker that has adaptable acoustics and a minimalist, Scandinavian-inspired design.
It has a powerful five-driver set up that delivers immersive, full-range sound that adapts based on the speaker’s orientation. Laid down, standing up or hanging on the wall, speaker automatically expands the width of the sound to reach everyone, everywhere in the room.
The frame is crafted from premium aluminium in Denmark and thanks to its modular design allows for replacement batteries, changeable fabric and wood covers, and more. The soft-touch buttons are seamlessly integrated into the frame and there is an integrated proximity sensor allowing for the buttons to appear when needed and ensuring that they are the right brightness at all times.
A smoothly integrated handle ensures easy pick up while IP54 dust and splash resistance means you can place it anywhere with confidence. With up to 16 hours of battery life, this elegant speaker is designed to enhance whichever room it’s moved to.
At the back of the device, there is a seamless circular plug that magnetically clicks into a depression at the rear similar to MagSafe on the new iPhones.
The Beosound Level with Google Assistant/ AirPlay and ChromeCast allows you to play your favorite music, control volume and find information about the song that you are listening to, hands-free. If you want discretion, simply slide the button on the top surface of Beosound Level to turn off Voice control completely.
It is available in two colours – Gold tone with light oak or Natural with dark grey and costs £1,099 for the natural and £1,299 for Gold.
