Bang & Olufsen is one of the most trusted audio brands in the business, so it should come as no surprise that its newest speaker is getting plenty of attention.
The portable Beoplay P2 might not be as whimsical as the BeoSound Shape modular wall audio system, but the new creation is much easier to take on the go.
B&O’s speaker is the ideal shape for packing in a purse or backpack, and it’s splash and dust resistant, making it a great fit for poolside party or picnicking sound production. As usual, customers can expect crystal clear sound and Bluetooth connectivity, in addition to 10-hour playback on full battery power, and an ultra-modern design.
However, users won’t find any button and switch controls. Using the unit might involve a strange adjustment at first, since the P2 takes on an unusually sleek design for a speaker; it’s essentially a giant touchscreen without the screen. You’ll get the hang of it, though. With a perforated front and distinctive pebble shape, it also fits easily in the palm of one’s hand.
Complete with a USB-C port, lanyard loop, and the customizable Beoplay app, the advanced little speaker is available for $169 in Black, Royal Blue, and Sand Stone.
