Bang & Olufsen Limited Edition Piano Black BeoSound 1
Yesterday, Bang & Olufsen unveiled a Piano Black edition of their portable wireless speaker, the BeoSound 1. Looking at the images we’ve recieved, this limited edition version looks abosuletly stunning. Apparently each speaker is polished and anodized several time, giving it that mesmerizing glossy black finish.
“Within fashion as well as interior design, black is a colour that never goes out of style and its versatility offers an unlimited portfolio of uses. It can add architectural elegance, create a dramatic look, redirect attention, add weight to a specific area as well as balancing out lighter hues. We are really excited to bring forward this colour”, says Bang & Olufsen Senior Concept Lead Kresten Bjørn Krab-Bjerre.
The BeoSound 1 is the smallest in the family of wireless BeoSound speakers. The speaker comes with the Acoustic Lens Technology renowned from classic Bang & Olufsen speakers such as BeoLab 5 and BeoLab 18. The acoustic driver is placed in the top of the speakers, playing into a reflector that creates a spherical and powerful 360-degree sound experience. Along with that 360 sound, you also get 16 hours of battery life and the best part, the inteligent user interface. There is a sensor in the speaker and once it detects your presence, it is ready for commands. Turn the wheel to adjust the volume or swipe & tap for other commands.
The BeoSound 1 has multiple connectivity options such as Google Cast, AirPlay, DNLA and Bluetooth, offer easy access from mobile devices and music apps. BeoSound 1 also provides integrated access to TuneIn Internet radio stations as well as Spotify and Deezer music services to allow streaming of music without using a smartphone or tablet. Moreover,
BeoSound 1 supports BeoLink Multiroom, which connects your Bang & Olufsen products into one wireless music system across the home.
The price? You’re looking at a RRP of £1085 or $1495, which looks to be the same price as the original, unlimited editions. The speaker is now available to purchase. For more info, visit the official Bang & Olufsen website.
