Bang & Olufsen’s Beosound Emerge Is A Small Wifi Speaker With Big Hi-Fi Sound

Category: Tech

For the last 96-years, Bang & Olufsen has been producing design-conscious audio gear with world-class sound, and this tradition remains as true today as it did when Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen founded the Danish firm in 1925. The latest top-shelf offering from Bang & Olufsen is the all-new Beosound Emerge wifi bookshelf speaker.

Penned by Benjamin Hubert, the founder of London-based design firm LAYER, the Beosound Emerge takes visual inspiration from hard-cover books, with a footprint of just 6.7cm (or 2.6”). Despite its diminutive size, the use of a revolutionary driver configuration — consisting of a 4” woofer, a 1.45” mid-range driver, and a 0.6” tweeter all backed by Class D amps — allows for true hi-fi sound that can be customized via the EQ on the Bang & Olufsen App. Crafted from a combination of precision cut, pearl-blasted aluminum, polymer, natural oak wood, and a Kvadra knitted textile, this ultra-premium wifi speaker also boasts soft-touch buttons, integrated Google Voice Assistant, built-in Apple AirPlay 2, Chromecast, Bang & Olufsen Radio, and Spotify Connect, an advanced thermal detection system, active room compensation, and adaptive bass linearization. Available now, the Bang & Olufsen Beosound Emerge starts at $699 for the black anthracite version and goes up to $899 for the light oak and anodized gold variant.
