B&O BeoPlay A2 Portable Bluetooth speaker

BeoPlay A2

Large, high quality, expensive design is what sets B&O apart from other speaker manufacturers. So when B&O announced the new BeoPlay A2, it seems to be set apart from the rest of the companies product line.

Size/Portability
The new BeoPlay A2 is a first for B&O, directed towards the portable user. With a slim, flat profile and leather handle, not to mention 24 hour battery, which is more than enough for any user. A little on the heavy side at 1.1 kg.

Quality
Build quality follows suite, this speaker aesthetically looks great. Its aluminium and poly-carbonate body should provide a sturdy product for any travel. However, Bluetooth isn’t known to produce anything of real high quality standards, which is traditionally what B&O are all about.
Sound quality can only truly be judged upon listening. With 180 watts of audio power, a woofer, a tweeter and a passive bass radiator enclosed, specs place this speaker near the top end on paper. A technology B&O are calling True360 allows you to place the speaker in any orientation, then… “Just listen and enjoy.”

Price
The BeoPlay A2 is available for £299. Not what you’d call cheap, but a lot more affordable than the average B&O product. Three colours give you the option of elegant green, pitch black or cool grey.
