B&W says that the conically-shaped BeoSound 1 and 2 deliver 360 degree sound, so you can hear sound from anywhere in the room, irrespective of where the speakers are positioned. The small, lightweight BeoSound 1 is battery-powered. The slightly larger BeoSound 2 is mains-powered. Both units can stream via Google Cast, AirPlay, DNLA and Bluetooth and provide integrated access to TuneIn Internet radio stations as well as Spotify and Deezer music services to allow streaming without a smartphone or tablet.
Up to eight BeoSound 1s (and/or 2s) can be wirelessly linked to create a unified home music system, after which you can play different music in different rooms, or have the same music playing throughout your home. ‘We live in a time of cord-cutting where everyone wants more freedom and no-one wants to be hindered by technological restrictions’, says Marie Kristine Schmidt, of Bang & Olufsen. ‘BeoSound 1 and 2 cater for a flexible lifestyle where music blends naturally into the home. The design is unobtrusive yet powerful, underscoring the purpose of the speakers, which are designed for convenience, crafted for mobility and feature an impressive 360 degrees of spherical sound.’ Available now, the BeoSound 1 retails for $1,950 (RRP) and the BeoSound 2 for $2,475 (RRP).
