Wow factor: B&O Beoplay A2
Weighing just 1.1 kilos and measuring 4.4 x 14.2 x 25.6 centimetres, the Beoplay A2 nonetheless brings across the good “True360” sound expected from speakers of larger dimensions. Thanks to Bluetooth technology, the high-performance lithium-ion battery lasts 24 hours and can be recharged via a USB cable.
Along with its impressive performance, the Beoplay A2’s look is especially pleasing, especially the light-coloured model, which exults the concept of a loudspeaker into ultimate style heaven. Like homage to Richard Sapper’s Telefunken transistor radio from 1963, Bang & Olufsen’s designer Cecilie Manz has wrapped a piece of high technology in a charming package with a certain coolness factor. The body of the Beoplay A2 is made of extruded aluminum, and the leather strap, available in two lengths, adds the perfect finishing touch.
