For well-over-a-decade Bang & Olufsen’s Beosound range has represented some of the elite audio outfit’s finest wares, so much so in fact that the sub-label has routinely been called upon by prestigious luxury car outfits to create bespoke sound systems for their respective automotive offerings. And after recently releasing the Beosound Shape and Stage Speakers, and the Beosound Contrast Collection, the Danish company has now introduced the latest addition its ever-growing hi-fi speaker lineup with the all-new Beosound Balance.

The compact wireless speaker was designed in collaboration with Benjamin Hubert of London-based design firm, LAYER, sporting a quintessentially Scandinavian design that blurs sleek modern visual themes with the region’s signature minimalistic aesthetic. Like previous additions to the Beosound range, the new Balance is made from a variety of top-shelf materials including blasted aluminum grills, tubular knitted fabric covers, solid oak wood bases, all of which collectively shroud an objectively cutting-edge audio device with a 33 – 23.000 Hz frequency range, 104dB (max) output, Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, automatic acoustic placement settings/adjustment, and multi-room stereo pairing. Offered in black oak or natural oak variants, the Bang & Olufsen Beosound Balance is currently available on the manufacturer’s website with pricing set at $2,250.
