As far as the world of tech is concerned, progress is measured in the terms of size; if you can make something smaller and sleeker without compromising functionality, then you’ve won. In the case of Bang & Olufsen, they’ve done just that with their release of the smaller, and more compact Bluetooth speaker. Introducing the Beoplay A1.
Taking their inspiration from the brand’s earlier and larger A2, Bang & Olufsen’s A1 is a durable disc made from aluminum and polymer that combine to create one serious piece of audio tech. Inside the smooth exterior are 2x20W and 2x140W drivers and amplifiers that produce an amazing sound – all in such a small device. It also boasts an aluminum core subwoofer to give you a bass extension worthy of a speaker twice its size. On a full battery, the A1 will provide you with a full 24 hours of audio playback. And once it’s done, all you have to do is use its USB-C charger to boost it back up. The A1 is available now for $250. [Purchase]
